Masai Mara National Reserve

The classic Safari. From July to September, the Mara provides one of nature’s most dramatic spectacles, the annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebras, teeming from the south to cross the Mara River into Masai Mara National Reserve. The stunning savannah stretches on forever. In this vast landscape you can see cheetah, the fastest animal in the world, chasing Antelope and Gazelle. In the Mara River Hippos bathe and on its banks Crocodiles sun themselves. One of the world’s very special places.

Nairobi National Park

Just outside Nairobi, this is home to large herds of Zebra, Wildebeest, Buffalo, Giraffe, Lion, Cheetah, Hippo, Rhino and even birdlife (over 400 species). Here you can also go on the Nairobi Safari Walk, an educational centre to make people aware of wildlife and habitat conservation. Also in the park is the Nairobi Animal Orphanage.

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli in Maasai means “place of water” this national park lies on the shadows of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest mountain yet covered by snow. It is 4 hours dive from Nairobi. Here we have among others large herds of elephants, zebra, giraffe, impala and leopards. Ever present is the remarkable view of Kilimanjaro, under which the park boasts one of Kenya’s best displays of Wildlife. Hemingway wrote of it as the essence of Africa. Elephants rummage in the lower forests, Leopards prowl the salt flats, Antelope graze. All against the backdrop of Kilimanjaro majestic peak. The classic image of Africa.

Tsavo National Park

Possibly the world’s biggest game sanctuary. On the east side roam ‘red’ Elephants, named from the colour of rich earth of the area they throw over themselves. On the west are the Mzima springs where Hippo and Crocodile bathe. A model national park in geographic, animal and plant diversity, situated halfway between Nairobi and Mombasa – making it ideal for those wanting to include both safari and coast on their itinerary. In the evening ‘Tsavo Sunsets” span the sky filling the horizon with incredible colour.
