OUR KENYA SAFARI LODGES AND TENTED CAMPS

Our Holiday Accommodation: The Other Half of Your Kenya Safari Experience

Africa Kenya Safaris only offer the best Kenya safari lodges and the finest tented camps in Kenya, ensuring you have the perfect safari tour accommodation.

Think of your safari and images of lions, leopards, giraffes, and elephants populate the great savannahs in your mind. But what about when the sun goes down? Can you picture yourself sipping a drink in the day’s afterglow, cozying up by a campfire, and then settling into a comfy bed serenaded by the music of the night’s wildlife? 

A large part of your safari is spent at your lodge or tented camp and can be just as meaningful as your game drives. The setting where you lay your head at night should be the perfect finish to the rush of the day’s adventures. And just as rich with memories.
