It finally looks like travel is on the horizon again so why not start with a gorgeous African escape to Kenya?
“Taking in the majesty of nature and learning about the plight of the endangered Pangolin on my Kenyan travels is what inspired me to create our latest collection with purpose. I fell in love with Kenya on my trip and I truly believe it is a destination that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime if they can” explains Yulia Fomina, Founder of Nia & Far.
With Visa-free travel for South Africans and frequent flights to one of the most beautiful destinations on the planet you can wake up with the Giraffes, swim in crystal blue waters or become one with nature in the vast Masai Mara. We’ve rounded up the gems we love in Kenya, and of course the fashion inspiration you need for your packing.
Truly one of our favourite African getaways Giraffe Manor in the heart of Nairobi Kenya defines what it means to be an escape. Touted as one of the most Instagrammable properties in the world, the hotel is in the heart of indigenious forest and you get to wake up with majestic Giraffes at breakfast (literally).
Lamu is one of our hidden gems, this stunning Indian Ocean Island is located just off Kenya’s North Coast – whether you want to take a dhow sailing trip, go sea kayaking, diving with dolphins or simply relax at the pool with a great book – this is the perfect destination to kick back and relax.
Old town historic charm and rich Swahili history meets modernity at the iconic Peponi hotel. Endless ocean views, decor to die for and bespoke character filled rooms makes this our homebase of choice whenever we visit the island.
The Masai Mara is iconic for the Great Wildebeest Migration which is a sight to behold. How you enjoy one of the most splendid places in Africa is crucial. That’s why we’re sharing one of the accommodation jewels of the Masai Mara, &Beyond’s Bateleur Camp is a luxurious tented camp experience that has a stunning all year-round concentration of animals. The seamless integration with nature, sumptuous decor and superb service will make you feel like you never want to leave.
