We welcome you to East Africa, home of the greatest safari experience.

Short Bio Ash Sofat - Kenya

Whilst I grew up, I had tourism imbibed at birth. I studied to become a chemical engineer, but in 1991 had to admit that working in the travel trade was just too strong a pull. I am now the MD & CEO of Somak Holidays

In addition I am also running businesses related to Somak – mainly expansion and overseeing the Ashnil Lodges and Hotels which take up a lot of my time.

 Testimonial Somak Safaris

Thank you, Somak staff for the excellent Mara Tour(23-28 July 2014). That was the best out all my Mara tours. All went very well. Special mention - driver/guide Christopher Kilonzo; he is super and ideal for wildlife photography. Chris made our tour very comfortable and productive. I'm sure he will be an asset to Somak. Anatolia looked after us very well. Also, the Camp is the best for migration and wildlife photography I believe. They too looked after us very well.
So I would definitely recommend Somak and will do a comment in Trip advisor.
All the best Somak.

What makes Kenya a great destination

Why Kenya

Who can forget the image in Out of Africa, where Robert Redford flew over Lake Naguru and thousands of pink flamingos? Many flamingos have since moved to Naiwasha lake, but the image stays - this is Kenya - unrivaled wildlife, the ancient culture of the Masai and the ultimate safari experience at your fingertips. Land of the migration of the Wildebeest and Zebra, one of the most spectacular and moving experiences you can imagine. From Amboseli and the endless grass lands of the Masai Mara, Mount Kenya to Samburu and Lake Naguru in the North.

Picture in your mind campfires in the boma, where after watching the lions and cheetah chase some hapless wildebeest, you are contemplating the day with your fellow travelers.

Or what to think of returning to your lodge in Mount Kenya, with an open fire in your room and a hot water bottle waiting for you after a sumptuous meal?

We can put together the most amazing incentives and events for you and your groups.
