Kenya Attractions

National Parks and Reserves of Kenya

With a startling 23 national parks and a further 13 private reserves, Kenya has a right to its claim to being the safari capital of the world.

Ranging from the vast savannah plains of the Masai Mara in the south to the rocky landscapes of Hell’s Gate and all the way up to Olpajeta at the feet of Mount Kenya, the nation’s parks offer a dazzling array of landscapes and safari experiences.

Wildlife of Kenya

Kenya is blessed with an abundance of wildlife ranging from the iconic ‘Big 5’ mammals to brilliantly coloured bird life, vast herds of migratory herbivores, and everything in between.

Kenya is one of the world’s premier safari spots for a reason, and its wealth of national parks makes it a must visit place for safari enthusiasts old and new.

Of particular interest to wildlife enthusiasts looking for a different experience will be Lake Nakuru, where each year up to a million flamingos gather each year to feed on the algae that gives them their distinct pink colouration. It’s a sight that must be seen to be believed.

Wildebeest Migration

The world famous Great Wildebeest Migration draws people from all over the world to witness the movement of more than a million wildebeest as well as the 400,000 zebra and 200,000 gazelle that accompany them.

Kenya’s Masai Mara National Park plays host to this amazing spectacle each year from September until November, with the massive number of herbivores descending upon the park and its surrounding conservancies.

While the most dramatic parts of the Great Wildebeest Migration take place largely in the neighbouring Serengeti, the Masai Mara game viewing experience during the September to November period offers the chance to see a massive number of animals and the predators who follow them everywhere they go.

The Kenya Coast

A glorious ribbon of silver & sapphire, the Kenya Coast is a tropical playground of white sand, brightly coloured coral, and blessedly warm, clear waters just begging to be played in.

A fusion of cultures, most prominently Swahili, makes the coast a uniquely intriguing place of myth, heritage, and magic not found elsewhere on earth.

Safaris in Kenya

Kenya offers a broad variety of adventures to its visitors. For those wanting to take their first safari, Kenya isn’t called the world’s safari capital for nothing.

The world famous Masai Mara National Park is located a short drive from Nairobi, one of east Africa’s most cosmopolitan and fascinating cities. There are national parks to explore by car or on foot, mountains to climb, and pristine beaches just begging to be explored.
