Kenya Safaris

Map of Kenya's Parks

Kenya's national parks and reserves are administered by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and rank as some of the finest in the world. They exist as total wildlife sanctuaries where human habitation is prohibited and animals roam wild and free.

Home Of The Original Safari

The original safari destination, it is the quality of Kenya’s parks and reserves that make it one of the places on the continent to see wildlife. Millions of wildebeest on their annual migration in the Maasai Mara and just as many flamingoes turning the shores of the Rift Valley Soda Lakes pink are breathtaking events to witness. Another awe inspiring sight is that of a heard of elephants crossing the flat plains with Africa’s most famous mountain, Kilimanjaro, rising above them in the background. Although Mt. Kilimanjaro lies in Tanzania, the scene just described can only be viewed in Kenya.

The Rift Valley & Highlands

These regions are perhaps Kenya’s most spectacular. The Rift Valley runs from Lake Turkana to the Lake Magadi and is peppered with extinct volcanoes. On the eastern side of the valley are the forested slopes of the Aberdares and Africa’s second highest mountain (after Kilimanjaro) , Mt. Kenya. This part of the country is the most fertile, not only supporting a wide range of animal and plant life, but also the people who cultivate it’s land.

The Savannahs and Plains

The southern plains of Kenya is where most travelers imagine themselves when dreaming of a Kenyan Safari. The savannahs of the Maasai Mara, Amboseli and Tsavo have become the classic Safari symbol. These are some of the best places to see the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, and elephant) and in August and September millions of wildebeest thunder through the Maasai Mara, flanked by zebra, gazelle and stalked by predators. Those looking for solitude and a sense of wilderness exploration will delights in the vast expanses of Tsavo while photographers will set their sites on Amboseli, the source of that classic image of Africa – Kilimanjaro towering over a heard of elephants.
