Kenya is the land of the Masai Mara, Mt Kenya and the iconic views of elephant and giraffe walking against the backdrop of Mt Kilimanjaro.

Motherly instinct!

It is the original safari destination with an extremely well developed and efficient safari industry. The safari has evolved to include great private conservancies where Masai land has been converted into game sanctuaries with the active involvement of the Masai people. Kenya is a great conservationist success story!

Kenya straddles the equator. The Great Rift Valley passes through its middle, with high mountains on either side, and volcanoes and lakes in the valley.

Kenya can be divided into the Highlands, the Arid North, the Rift Valley, Masai Mara, and the Eastern plateau. Kenya is one of the premier safari destinations in Africa with some lovely game parks where you can experience highest quality safari, excellent game viewing and guiding.

Masai Mara

A Masai warrior welcomes you to the Masai Mara, a natural wonder of the world

The Masai Mara is one of the best safari destinations in Africa. It is considered one of the natural wonders of the world. Its rolling grasslands and wide-open savannah are rich in resident game and you will find all the herbivores and predators. The Masai Mara is blessed with high concentrations of game which you can see all year round. Here you can also witness the spectacle of the migration when literally hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra cross the Grumeti and Mara rivers and arrive in Kenya from Tanzania in search of grazing. Best time to see the migration in the Masai Mara is between August and October. The safari experience in Masai Mara is authentic and prolific.

Bordering the Masai Mara Main Reserve are some excellent private conservancies such as Olare Orok, Mara North, Naboisho & Ol Kinyei. These are private conservancies and they have the advantage of off-road driving close-up to big game and night drives both of which are not allowed in the main reserve. The safari here is superb with top quality game viewing, guiding and some excellent luxury camps. Being private conservancies, visitor traffic is restricted only to the handful of camps compared to the very commercial and touristy main Mara Reserve.

The Highlands comprise of the Aberdare National Park, Mt. Kenya and Laikipia

A classic African sunset!

It stretches over a wide variety of terrain from mountains to deep valleys. Here the game is varied due to the varied landscape and the game viewing is very rewarding.

It is a vast expanse of wilderness in the central highlands and this wilderness area has been created by bringing down the fences between the several large private ranches that make up the Laikipia region to allow game to roam freely. Laikipia is watered by the Ewaso Ngiro river and as a result there is a very good concentration of game.

It is a sanctuary for several endangered species such as black rhino, Somali ostrich and Beisa oryx. It has an excellent representation of lion, leopard and cheetah and wild dogs are making a comeback.

Laikipia is an unspoiled wilderness and is perfect in combination with the crowded tourist destinations such as Masai Mara and other parks in Kenya.

It is located in the Eastern plateau and it borders Tanzania. The melting snow of Mt. Kilimanjaro gives Amboseli a permanent underground water supply and as a result you will find very good concentration of game including large herds of elephant, buffalo and all the herbivores.

From Amboseli you get magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro. It is an excellent park to visit during an extended trip to Kenya.

It is located in the Rift Valley in central Kenya. It is a world heritage site and is most famous for its thousands of flamingos. It also has one of the largest concentrations of black and white rhino in Kenya.

It is located on the banks of the Ewaso Ngiro river in the arid northern part of Kenya. It is a small reserve and off the beaten track. It has excellent game which benefits from the water supply of the Ewaso Ngiro river. It has special species such as Grevys zebra, gerenuk, reticulated giraffe and oryx. All the predators are well representated and wild dog have made a comeback.

Samburu has excellent game and is a perfect combination with the pristine Laikipia and the busy Masai Mara.

It is a private conservancy and is a sanctuary for the largest population of black and white rhino in East Africa. The safari here is exceptional with very good cat sightings. You can get the opportunity of visiting the Jane Goodall chimpanzee sanctuary located within the Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
