Kenya

Kenya sits proudly as one of Africa’s most popular safari destinations, it’s easy to see why the diversity of game in Kenya is simply astounding. From the big five to the small five, Kenya’s game parks, reserves and other wildlife protection areas host some of the wildest game in the world. The icing on Kenya’s wildlife cake is the annual Wildebeest Migration in the Maasai Mara the migration occurs between mid-August and late October.

Masai Mara

Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most popular tourism destinations in Kenya- Africa. The reserve is in the Great Rift Valley in primarily open grassland. Wildlife tends to be most concentrated on the reserve’s western escarpment. The Masai Mara is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas. The annual wildebeest’s migration alone involves over 1.5 million animals arriving in July and departing in November. There have been some 95 species of mammals, amphibians, and reptiles and over 400 bird species recorded on the reserve.

Lake Nakuru

Lake Nakuru was first gazetted as a bird sanctuary in 1960 and upgraded to National Park status in 1968.The Park has Kenya’s largest population of rhinos. The surface of the Lake Nakuru occupies about a third of the park. It supports a dense bloom of the blue-green Cyanophyte Spirulina platensis from which it derives its colour and is a food source for flamingos. During peak season millions of flamingos and Pelicans congregate on the lake.

Amboseli

Amboseli lies immediately north-west of Mount Kilimanjaro, on the border with Tanzania. The Park covers 392 square km, and forms part of the much larger 3,000 square km Amboseli ecosystem Large concentrations of wildlife occur here in the dry season, making Amboseli a popular tourist destination. It is surrounded by six communally owned group ranches. The National Park embodies five main wildlife habitats (open plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush country, swamps and marshland) and covers part of a Pleistocene lake basin, now dry. Within this basin is a temporary lake, Lake Amboseli, that floods during years of heavy rainfall.

Kenya’s Coast

Kenya however is not just about wildlife, it’s blessed with a tropical Indian Ocean coastline, where palm trees and sandy beaches are blessed with clear warm waters. The beaches of Mombasa and Malindi offer a perfect contrast and some downtime to compliment your safari adventure.
