Immense herds of wildlife, colourful age-old traditions, vast savannahs and mesmerising sunsets: Kenya is the perfect destination for an Africa adventure holiday.
Wondering what to expect from a solo holiday there? Read on to find out all the details of the trip, from where you would visit and what to look out for to who you would be travelling with.
We have three departure dates for our adventure holiday in Kenya next year, all of which have durations of seven nights.
Our singles adventure holiday to Kenya promises to introduce you to all the sights and experiences you’d expect from an African adventure holiday – plus much more.
After flying into the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, we’ll transfer to Amboseli National Park where we can soak up the spectacular view of Mount Kilimanjaro and take a game drive to spot wildebeest, giraffes and baboons.
On your fourth day, you can look forward to a boat trip on the tranquil Lake Naivasha, keeping an eye out for rare birds and hippos as you float along.
Next, it’s the bit everyone’s been waiting for! Enjoy an unforgettable game drive around the Masai Mara Game Reserve – one of Kenya’s most popular safari destinations where sightings of the ‘Big Five’, cheetahs, zebras and hippos are almost guaranteed. We’ll spend two nights in the park, before returning to Nairobi for a visit to the Karen Blixen museum and Giraffe Centre and a final farewell dinner.
Kenya and wildlife go hand in hand, with the elusive ‘Big Five’ being the savannah’s star attraction.
Coined by big-game hunters who once found these five animals the hardest to hunt, the lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and cape buffalo are now protected by wildlife conservation centres and safari reserves.
On top of this, you can also expect to see cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, African elephants, herds of wildebeest, hippos, warthogs and much more on a safari adventure in Kenya.
As per all our singles adventure holidays, you will travel to Kenya amongst a group of solo travellers – the average group size being 15.
You will also have the company of a dedicated Solos Tour Leader on your travels, who will be there to make sure everything runs smoothly, and answer any questions or queries that may arise during the holiday.
Sometimes your Tour Leader will meet you at the boarding gate and fly with you, while, at other times, you will meet the Tour Leader at the destination.
Maybe you’ve always wanted to travel to Kenya, but have been too afraid to go at it completely alone, or maybe you fancy trying something you’ve never tried before – a solo adventure holiday.
Either way, travelling to Kenya with Solos is a great way to experience the best of this beautiful country, while in safe hands.
We have been serving the solo traveller since 1982, and are there to make your trip as enjoyable, comfortable and memorable as possible – from start to finish. With Solos, you’ll join a sociable group where there will always be somebody with whom to share those cherished moments.
Yes, generally speaking, it is safe to travel to Kenya. It’s recommended you steer clear of areas within 60km of the Kenya-Somali border, but the country’s main safari parks, beach resorts and capital city of Nairobi are all safe for tourists to visit.
Around 100,000 people from the UK visit Kenya every year, most of which are completely trouble free.
