If there is one country that is synonymous with big game it is Kenya. Here, veteran Africa hand Brian Jackman suggests a tour to inspire and thrill
“In the highlands,” wrote Karen Blixen in Out of Africa, “you woke up in the morning and thought: Here I am, where I ought to be.” Over the years I too have come to know that feeling, having shared it on many occasions, and it happens only in Kenya.
The highlands Blixen was referring to are the Ngong Hills, just outside Nairobi, and the great plains of Maasailand that stretch down to meet Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. This is Hemingway’s Africa, hoisted 5,000 feet into the equatorial sky, where the climate is like the finest English summer’s day. I can think of no better place for a safari that will touch your soul.
