amref logo

For those intrepid holiday makers with the heart of an explorer, looking for the best african safari destinations, Somak has a very special holiday experience to offer you. Kenya is 'the' land of safaris; an adventure holiday destination as diverse as your imagination. From a lion's roar to a bird's chirp, a Masai warrior to a fisherman, snow-capped peaks to thick forests and white sand beaches to grassy plains, Somak's local safari guides and experts ensure your safari experience is filled with all that Kenya can offer.

At the heart of East Africa, straddling the equator, is a land of wildlife documentary heaven and a sunbather's paradise! The country plays host to the largest animal movement in the world during the annual migration into the Masai Mara, which is home to the 'big five' - elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard, and has a heritage and culture which fascinates all those who visit. Safari with Somak and Somak's guides will do all they can to get you a grandstand seat from which to experience Kenyan wildlife as it happens, right in front of you. And, at the end of the day, relax in style at one of our fine African safari lodges.
