Kenya Map
There is a romance about Kenya that conjures up images of African colonial life, taking tea on the verandah, crisp white linen, stiff safari suits and passionate affairs with big-game hunters. I think, there is a part in all of us that wants to stand in the shade of an acacia tree at the base of the Ngong Hills.

Kenya, home of safari, is still the most visited of all the African countries and for good reason. It is everything you imagine Africa to be, prides of lion hunting in the open plains, herds of wildebeest snaking through the Mara on their eternal quest for fresh new grass, a leopard hanging from the tree-tops, its prey slung over a branch and cheetah on the lookout for their next meal across the expanse of the savannah.

Certain areas can be busy but Kenya still has large tracts of wilderness that offer superb safari experiences with no other vehicles in sight. With our knowledge we will fly you into the heart of this beautiful country, which is home to some of the most exclusive lodges and wonderful tented camps, and whether you are looking for a 4 or 14 day trip, Holmes Travel will ensure that your holiday offers an unparalleled wildlife spectacular.

After all this excitement what better way to relax than on the soft white coral beaches of the Indian Ocean. Lamu, with its Moorish influence, has some beautifully restored Swahili townhouses and small boutique hotels, the unspoilt islands of Zanzibar and Pemba offer some luxurious but simple retreats, such as Fundu Lagoon and Kilindi or, for an exclusive honeymoon hideaway, North Island on the Seychelles is the ultimate beach destination.
