Kenya is the safari capital of the world. The greatest wildlife spectacle on the planet, wildebeest migration, takes place in the Maasai Mara; one of the world’s most famous national parks. A safari in Kenya is a life changing and eye opening. You are presented with a rich diversity of wildlife, beautiful landscapes and cultures.
Kenya has a rich diversity of wildlife attractions meaning that no two experiences are the same. From the plains of the Maasai Mara to the panoramic views of Mount Kilimanjaro in Amboseli to the lush forests of Aberdares and rugged terrain of Samburu, you are guaranteed of a wonderful safari experience.
Simply put, it is the best destination in Kenya for viewing wildlife – and lots of it! The Maasai Mara is home to the Wildebeest Migration Spectacle.
The grassy savannah landscape enhances the beauty of the reserve. Scattered acacia woods and bush stand out in the plains.
Amboseli is famous for its big game and its great scenic beauty – and the landscape is dominated by the towering Mount Kilimanjaro. The animal selection is vastly diverse. Elephants are a majority, the largest number in all Kenyan parks.
A visit to the Aberdares is unforgettable. Elephant herds surround the waterholes, drink and then fade way into the forest. Buffalos fight over territory in spectacular battles and occasionally a Rhino or the elusive Bongo antelope take a drink at the waterhole.
Samburu is home to large herds of elephants and elusive leopards and there is plenty to see and do as far as wildlife is concerned. The area is inhabited by a wide variety of animals, more so the rare species such as the long – necked Gerenuk, Gravy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe and Beisa oryz.
Tsavo National Park to many is mostly associated with the lions dubbed, ‘man-eaters of Tsavo’. The star attraction of the park lies beneath Mzima Springs. The natural spring waters have within them a viewing point to see crocodiles and hippos. The park is outlined by mountains, forests, rivers, plains and wooded grassland.
Ol Pejeta Conservancy is East Africa’s Largest Black Rhino Sanctuary, the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees and holds some of the highest predator densities in Kenya. This wildlife conservancy enjoys magnificent views across the plains to the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Kenya, and has abundance of wildlife.
Lake Nakuru offers excellent views of wildlife with most of the big safari ones available except elephants.
White and black rhinos, the Rothschild giraffe, buffalos and hippos are in plenty. Once in a while you might spot a lion.
Lake Naivasha is a beautiful freshwater lake, fringed by thick papyrus. The dominant wildlife here is the hippo; there are thousands in the lake. There are other wildlife that normally graze and roam around the lake including zebras, giraffes, buffaloes and gazelles.
