8 day African Golf Safari

kenya golf holiday

An African Golf Safari may sound like a paradox, but considering the beautiful collection of close to century-old golf courses in Kenya, it is natural for golfers to want to enjoy an African Golf Safari while on holiday in Kenya. Not only are the golf courses playable all year round due to Kenya's tropical climate, but golf is also fairly affordable here with courses being very natural often sporting some of their own local wildlife such as warthogs and deer trotting across the fairways.
This 8 day Golf Safari combines golfing in Nairobi, Naivasha & Mount Kenya with a Safari in Masai Mara.
