Exotic yet faintly familiar, Kenya calls to that wild streak deep in the human heart that longs to be out in nature, to be part of something grander than ourselves.
For generations of travelers, Kenya has answered that call with one of the greatest natural shows on earth – the annual migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra crossing the Masai Mara’s rolling grasslands and wooded savannas. The sweeping countryside of the Great Rift Valley takes in striking Mt. Kenya, the second highest peak in Africa. Vast Lake Victoria is the second largest freshwater lake in the world, and the source of the White Nile, one of the two tributaries of Egypt’s mythic Nile River. Kenya is also the ancestral home to more than 40 distinct tribal groups. Luxury, tented camps and private estates nestled deep in the wilderness welcome the traveler. This is quintessential safari country ripe with adventures. With its wealth of wildlife cultures and dramatic scenery, Kenya remains one of the most popular and best organized safari destinations. Yet, that very success must make us hesitate. So many travelers come in search of Kenya’s wild nature that human overcrowding in the nationals parks and reserves, along with poaching and habitat loss are making it increasingly difficult to experience this incredible wilderness. That is why Big Five made a commitment to move away from large-scale inns and lodges in favor of small private conservancies that offer a practical sustainable approach. We recognize that a multipronged approach is needed that includes tour operators, conservancies and other conservation entities working together to save Kenya’s, and indeed Africa’s wild places as well as the wildlife and the local communities that depend on them to survive for future generations.
