Nature’s wild roars come alive in Kenya. Kenya’s protected areas are home to a large variety of flora and fauna. Each wilderness area has something unique to offer. From the ‘World’s only Wildlife Capital’ of Nairobi to ‘Bird Watchers Paradise’ and from Lake Nakuru to the ‘Kilimanjaro’s Royal Court’ of Amboseli; Kenya’s wilderness is the face of wild Africa.
Masai Mara National Reserve
The Jewel of Kenya
Masai Mara National Reserve is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife. Its spectacular annual wildebeest migration involves over 1.5 million animals and there has been a staggering 95 species of mammals, amphibians and reptiles and over 400 birds species recorded on the reserve. Nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant, which makes Masai Mara National Reserve the ultimate destination for spotting the big five.
Amboseli National Park
Best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world
Amboseli lies immediately north-west of Mount Kilimanjaro. Large concentrations of wildlife occur here in the dry season and The National Park embodies five main wildlife habitats (open plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush country, swamps and marshland) and covers part of a Pleistocene lake basin, which is now dry. Amboseli is famous for its big game and its scenic beauty, with the landscape being dominated by the towering Mount Kilimanjaro.
Tsavo National Park
The world’s most unique biodiversity
Tsavo National Park is the largest national park in Kenya. The beautiful landscape and proximity to the coast makes it a popular safari destination. It is recognized as one of the world’s most unique biodiversity, with endless grassland and open plains that are alternated with acacia bushes and forests. The banks of the Galana River give unexpected lush vegetation.
Lake Nakuru National Park
The kingdom of Flamingos
Lake Nakuru is iconic, with thousands of flamingos joined into a massive flock, fringing the shores of this soda lake. A pulsing pink swathe of life, the flamingos are a breathtaking sight. But Nakuru has more to offer than just flamingos. It is a major National Park and an important sanctuary for Rhinos. Both Black and White Rhinos are found here and are often seen resting under acacias by the lake shore.
Hell’s Gate National Park
Camping under the Kenyan night sky
Hell’s Gate National Park is named after a narrow break in the cliffs, which once was a tributary of a prehistoric lake that fed early humans in the Rift Valley. It is a small national park, but it is not to be missed because of its wide variety of wildlife and breathtaking scenery. The park has three basic campsites and a Maasai Cultural Center where you can learn about the Maasai tribe culture and traditions.
Kenya’s capital city
Nairobi is Kenya’s capital city. In addition to its urban core, the city has Nairobi National Park: a large game reserve known for breeding endangered black rhinos and which is home to giraffes, zebras and lions. It is also located right next to a well-regarded elephant orphanage. Nairobi is an energetic, modern city that serves as a fascinating introduction to both wildlife and nightlife.
