Right now, it’s Kenya – The Perfect Holiday Getaway for 2021

The time to visit Kenya, and fall in love for the first time, or again, with Africa’s most celebrated safari destination, is undoubtedly NOW.” – Marius Coetzee

I would firstly like to wish all our ORYX guests, supporters and friends a belated Happy New Year, may 2021 be a productive, rewarding year for you all.

As my 45-day Kenyan photo safari draws to a close, I am feeling beyond grateful for the epic wildlife sightings and hospitality. I’ve experienced a lot of amazing wildlife moments during my 21 years in the safari industry. But to use some modern slang, “damn” this was beyond special, and I’m frequently left feeling speechless as I try to recount this journey to friends and family, reliving the memorable encounters and pausing to contemplate the distinct aura of each location, that feeling that is unique to each location on safari, but one that is characteristically African…

Having travelled through many airports and gotten on and off multiple planes for the past 45 days, I can honestly tell you that I felt safe throughout. I wore my N95 mask. Temperature checks were done at every lodge, camp and hotel. Some did them multiple times a day. Sanitizer galore. We are often told that guest safety is paramount, however on this safari I saw if for myself – Kenya’s hospitality industry put my mind at ease and allowed me to enjoy what I came her for, namely SAFARI.

I have always loved Kenya, and destinations such as the Maasai Mara and Amboseli have and will continue to remain dear to my heart. But this time I was able to rekindle my love for parts of Kenya that frankly, I had for the most part written off; places such as Lewa. I truly had some of my BEST sightings in Lewa, with a highlight being the time I was able to spend with an unforgettable Black Rhino. I also visited new areas such as Lamu, and was instantly bewitched by the historic Swahili settlement. I left Kenya feeling rejuvenated, and with a fresh appreciation for this iconic safari nation.

If you have the itch to travel and want the best safari experience, honestly, the time is now. We will never again experience Kenya without the masses again. The time to visit Kenya, and fall in love for the first time, or again, with Africa’s most celebrated safari destination, is undoubtedly NOW.
