Southwest Kenya
is a very diverse region which includes the famous Rift Valley lakes, fertile upland forests and tea plantations and vast open plains leading down towards Lake Victoria.


Masai Mara ... is, without doubt, the country's star turn, an extraordinarily beautiful reserve which can still deliver an outstanding safari experience.

Lake Magadi and Loita Hills ... is a fascinating area in the southern Rift Valley, very little-visited, with some interesting wildlife and superb multiple day treks.

Lake Naivasha ... is an area of the Rift Valley which is was a favourite haunt for aristocratic settlers during the the Colonial Era, but which these days has become increasingly urbanised and rather less attractive.

Lake Nakuru ... is a famous small reserve in the Rift Valley, usually the best place to see flamingoes, but much soiled by urban expansion and mass-market tourism.

Lake Baringo ... is a very beautiful and much more remote area further north in the Rift Valley, but peripheral to most visitors and short of quality accommodation options.

Lake Bogoria ... is a mildly interesting location also further north in the Rift Valley, with flamingoes and geysers, but also without any really attractive lodge options.

Lake Victoria ... contains a couple of interesting island lodges which are primarily visited by air from the Masai Mara for fishing.

Kisumu ... is a major town on the northeast shore of Lake Victoria, of little interest to most travellers.

Kakamega Forest ... is the largest remaining patch of equatorial forest in Kenya, but is too far off the beaten track to appeal to many people.
