OUR FAVOURITE KENYAN DESTINATIONS

AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK

Amboseli forms part of an elephant migratory corridor between Kenya and Tanzania, with snow-capped Kilimanjaro as the backdrop; famed for being the best place to get up close to herds of these free-ranging giants.

Relaxed groups of buffalo, zebra, giraffe and plains game populate the park, along with predators including lion and hyena.

Only 200km from Nairobi, Amboseli is easily accessed by road and air and is readily combined with surrounding reserves like Tsavo National Park, as well as a Tanzania safari.

MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

Teeming with wildlife and home to an abundance of big cats and plains game, Maasai Mara National Reserve forms an extended corner of the Serengeti, named in honour of the Maasai people.

A year-round Big 5 safari destination, the Mara is the only protected area in Kenya with an indigenous black rhino population, supporting one of Africa’s largest populations.

Wildebeest are the dominant inhabitants, with numbers estimated in the millions as they migrate north of the Serengeti in search of fresh pasture.

TSAVO NATIONAL PARK

Spanning over 2.2 million hectares of semi-arid grasslands and savanna, Tsavo is split into two national parks named for the Tsavo River – Tsavo East and Tsavo West.

Renowned for large herds of elephant and mesmerizing landscapes, Tsavo’s geographical features, including highlights like Mudanda Rock, Lugard Falls and Mzima Springs, complement the Big 5 game viewing experience.

The park is famous for what is known as the Tsavo lions; adult male individuals that often lack manes altogether.
