Somak Holidays is an award-winning tour operator with 50 years’ experience in organising holidays to East and Southern Africa. Somak Holidays offer a comprehensive range of safaris, cultural and sports tours, self-drive holidays, beach retreats and a full tailor-made service, plus weddings, honeymoons and groups. For the more adventurous, we offer the chance to go gorilla trekking in Rwanda and Uganda, or climbing itineraries up Mount Kilimanjaro.

We have built our reputation on personal service, quality hotels and outstanding value for money. As a family-owned and operated business, Somak Holidays maintains a passion, and intimate knowledge of Africa, that has helped form our renowned customer service, and speciality tours and packages. From our beginnings in Kenya, Somak Holidays has expanded into a truly international organisation, offering the African experience to over 30,000 customers from all continents each year.

It is our aim to provide each and every guest with the holiday they wish for, and so much more. Your comfort and wellbeing are very important to us, and with this in mind all clients have use of the Somak Safari Lounge, the first one of its kind in Kenya , and all those who have time to spare as they pass through Nairobi can take advantage of its facilities and services.

Somak Holidays is delighted to be a partner of Amref Health Africa, a charity with 50 years experience of delivering African solutions for Africa’s health problems. For each traveller to East Africa, Somak makes a donation to Amref, and every Somak guest receives Amref Flying Doctors ‘Maisha’ Air Ambulance cover. We are also pleased to support TUSK and the Born Free Foundation.

So whether you are looking for the ultimate Tanzania safari with a little relaxation on the idyllic beaches of Zanzibar, or perhaps a Cape Town and Garden Route tour with an optional extension to the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius, then our friendly and knowledgeable Somak Holidays team can tailor-make the perfect trip for you.

Kilimanjaro climb

We are proud and excited to announce our partnership with Dreams Come True, with whom we will be heading to Tanzania to take on a Kilimanjaro Climb to raise funds for the incredible work that they do for children and young adults with serious and life-limiting conditions.

Sri Lanka

At Somak Luxury Travel we also plan the most wonderful holidays to Sri Lanka

Located in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is famed for its vast expanse of golden sand beaches, yet it has plenty more to offer besides luxurious relaxation. It is home to spectacular wildlife – including tigers and elephants – and offers a selection of unique safari experiences. Whilst the island is relatively small, there is plenty of activity to be had, from exploring ancient Buddhist temples and forts, to trekking through the rugged landscapes, to visiting the numerous tea plantations, to enjoying a safari. The cuisine in Sri Lanka is sublime, as is the local hospitality, making this country ideal for families as well as couples seeking a romantic getaway.
