An African Safari vacation is a popular travel goal. It brings together travel to an exotic location, seeing unique wildlife, an adventure with just a hint of risk, great photography opportunities and memories to last a lifetime. Just mention you are going on an African Safari and your friends are sure to be envious and impressed.

In East Africa, Kenya is a great choice as a safari vacation destination because of the opportunity to combine an exciting African wildlife safari expedition with a relaxing beach vacation. One day you can be swimming in the warm Indian Ocean on a sandy tropical beach, and the next day you can be watching lions and elephants in the wild.

Kenya is an exotic vacation destination offering a complete break from western city life routines with its opportunity to combine beach and African safari vacations in one trip. For couples planning a wedding, Kenya is well worth considering for a very special honeymoon experience.

Europeans, especially the British, have rediscovered Kenya as a vacation destination in recent years, in part because of the relative strength of European currencies and improving disposable income. The reputation of Kenya as a place to go on vacation has been slower to develop in more distant America, but is now gaining in popularity because of the uniqueness of the experiences on offer.

With near perfect weather for vacationers, Kenya is an ideal holiday destination. The May to July rainy season consists of heavy but short tropical downfalls that are unlikely to disrupt holiday activities, making a Kenyan vacation attractive all year round.

Kenya offers an abundance of activities and entertainment. The excitement of a safari adventure combined with time to relax and take it easy in a peaceful and secure beach resort makes for a distinctive Kenyan experience.

The main group of Kenyan beach hotels and resorts are located about an hour’s drive from the airport at Mombasa. There vacationers can enjoy sandy tropical beaches and swim in the warm Indian Ocean. There are budget hotels and luxury five star resort hotels to suit all levels of affordability.

Safari expeditions can be chosen from short or long trips, and from simple to luxury facilities. The Tsavo National Parks are not far from the beach resorts, and you might choose just to spend a couple of days viewing the wildlife, or take longer if you prefer.

Traveling further to Nairobi, you can experience your safari in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Luxury facilities and safari themed accommodation in a 4-5 night expedition will more than complement a luxury beach resort vacation on the coast. You can choose other options as you wish.

The Masai Mara Reserve may offer more animal variety than the Tsave Parks, but the wildlife is abundant in both locations, to ensure your safari experience is thrilling and filled with excitement. Expert safari guides ensure you can safely view the wild animals close at hand in their natural habitat. Whatever safari options you choose are sure to be satisfying.

A beach and African safari vacation in Kenya is an exciting choice, with options available to suit both travelers on a budget and those seeking a luxury experience.
