Come on African safari holidays to the amazing Kenya and spend the most happening days of your life here. There are as many as 40 national parks in this small country in Africa, and some of them are more popular than others among tourists.
A Kenya safari at Amboseli National Park or at the Kimana Game Sanctuary on the foothills of the mighty Kilimanjaro can be a fascinating experience. Just visualize the mighty African elephant walking majestically, with the snows of Kilimanjaro in the background. If you have grown up watching “Born Free,” then a visit to the Samburu National Reserve is a must for you. Walk in the footsteps of Joy Adamson and George Adamson and feel nostalgic about Elsa, the famous Lioness. Lake Nakuru National Park is not to be missed if you want to see the cradle of humanity – the Great Rift Valley – and millions of flamingos. And of course, how can your African safari holidays end without spending a day with the Masai tribesmen at the vast plains of Masai Mara.
What You Must Absolutely Do On Your Kenya Safari Holidays
Wildlife: No trip to Africa is complete without the big 5 – lions, elephant, leopard, buffalo, and rhino. However, in your African safari holidays, you should see much more than that. You should see the graceful giraffe, the huge flightless ostrich, herds of gazelle and zebra. You should see them in their stunning natural ambiance. And if you are lucky, you can also see a hunt. The fact is, some of the best hunt videos have been shot by amateur photographers, who were at the right place at the right time.
Spectacular Kenyan landscape: Open Savannah grasslands that are almost limitless, with the odd Baobab tree in the horizon and the vast sky right in front of you, the Kenyan landscape is spectacular. But that’s not all. The snow of Kilimanjaro and Mt. Kenya and the great tea and coffee plantations and coconut palms are also waiting to be explored.
Lakes of the Rift Valley: The Great Rift Valley is the cradle of humanity and is worth a visit itself. But here, you can see some really fantastic lakes, such as Lake Victoria, which is as big as an inland sea. Lake Nakuru is home to millions of flamingos.
The annual migration: Every year, there’s an annual migration of more than 2 million wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle, zebra, and other grazing animals, and this is a fantastic natural wonder. Following them are lions, cheetahs, hyenas, and other hunters. This is a favorite event of wildlife photographers, and it can be a once in a lifetime experience for you as well.
The wonderful Masai Mara: The Masai Mara National Reserve is perhaps the most famous game reserve in the world along with Serengeti in Tanzania. Actually, this is the same reserve with different names in Kenya and Tanzania. No African safari holidays are complete without a visit to this reserve that has been named after the courageous Masai people – the early inhabitants of this area.
