Kenya Wildlife Safari

Kenya packs a mighty punch with its gorgeous landscapes, its coral reefs, its outrageously friendly people, and its tribal history. But there’s one reason in particular why Kenya has big wow factor: its wildlife viewing opportunities are mind-blowing. Naturally, nobody wants to be caught unaware in a pride of lions. Hiring a local guide to take you on a Kenya wildlife safari not only guarantees to be a great time, it’s also your safest option.

Kenya’s landscape ranges from mountains to deserts to beaches and coral reefs, thanks to its prime location straddling the equator. It’s not hard to see why wildlife is such a popular draw here. On the plains of the Maasai Mara reserve, there are over 95 species of mammal, amphibians, and reptiles. There are also over 400 bird species – more than anywhere else in Africa. If you’re looking to see the big five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino), the Maasai Mara reserve is a good bet. Other wildlife includes hippopotami, cheetah, gazelles, impalas, giraffes, antelope, and the bat-eared fox. If you’re lucky, you might find yourself visiting during the annual wildebeasts migration, where you’ll see a whopping 1.5 million animals on the move.

Your Kenya wildlife safari guide will introduce you to the area while providing lots of background information. Maasai Mara is a sort of Microworld, complete with the beautiful Lake Nakuru ecosystem and the grasslands. It’s possible to hop on a boat ride around Lake Naivasha to get up close and personal with the flamingo flocks there. That’s why it’s important to listen to your guide and treat the area with the utmost care, so that all species can remain safe and protected. You may even get to see the gorgeous Rift Valley while making your way to the plains, and a cultural visit to a Maasai Village is a must.

Kenya Wildlife Safari Continued...

Ever wondered what it it’d be like to sleep in a tent under the African skies? Here’s your chance. In the northern part of Kenya, you’ll find Samburu National Park, a dry savannah with low mountain slopes. The goal in this park is to see giraffes, gazelles, zebras, and oryx. For bird lovers, the preserve has over 400 bird species, including the beautiful Somali ostrich. Other birds include the kingfisher, sunbird, bee-eater, Marabou stork, and the tawny eagle. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about the Samburu people, related to the Maasai tribe. The Thomson Falls can also be found here, which plunges a jaw-dropping 72 metres into the Ewaso Narok River at the end of the Aberdare Ranges.
