If all you want from your trip to Kenya is to see the wildlife, you will not be disappointed! The diversity of the wildlife and scenery across Kenya's many National Parks and game reserves will ensure that your safari holiday is not only exciting, but also varied in terms of the animals that you may see.
The Masai Mara is the most well-known of the Kenya safari destinations, and conjures up images of sun-baked plains with stalking lions and leopards roaming across the open savannas. A true ‘Out of Africa’ safari destination, the sheer volume of animals found here and the astounding number of different bird species you may encounter makes this an exciting and rewarding year-round safari destination, for first-time safari goers or for returning safari enthusiasts. Elephant, buffalo, lion, rhino (incluidng the endanged black rhino as well as the white rhino), antelope, zebra, hyena, leopard, giraffe, hippo, and crocodile - the list goes on and on.
An added bonus if you plan to travel here during the months of August through to October is that you will be able to witness the ‘Great Migration’, where over a million wildebeest, zebra and gazelles descend on the central Mara plains, tired and exhausted after their long and arduous trek from the neighbouring Serengeti plains in Tanzania to reach this fresh grazing land. It is here that you may, if you are lucky and patient, get to witness a famous Mara River crossing, where the wildebeest fight for their lives against strong currents, steep riverbanks and huge hungry crocodiles who lie in wait to ‘snap up’ any tired animals who are finding the dangerous river crossing just too much to handle after a journey that has been already about 900 miles.
But there is more to Kenya than the Masai Mara. Don't forget the more remote Laikipia or Samburu areas - home to the Samburu Special Five if you are looking to tick something new and different off your wildlife checklist. Then there is the stunning Amboseli with it's backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro and huge herds of elephants - some of which have the glory of having the largest recorded tusks ever. And finally, the red, dusty Tsavo National Park (the largest National Park in Kenya) with its famous 'red' elephant inhabitants and 'man-eating' lions.
