Wildlife Trips in Kenya

Kenya is often referred to as the “melting pot of Africa” due to its wide variety of inhabitants, landscapes and wildlife, all coming together in a positive, colourful and vibrant medley.

Kenya’s well photographed landscapes vary from arid deserts, undulating grasslands, snow-capped peaks, lush rainforests, cultivated plains and flamingo filled lakes. All of these environments come with their own exciting array of animals and birdlife, and on safaris in Kenya you can see the Big Five, and more. Kenya is also a bird watcher’s paradise with over a thousand varieties to see.

Popular wildlife watching spots include Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Tsavo national parks, Samburu Game Reserve, and the legendary Masai Mara where the famed annual wildebeest migration takes place.


Country Information

The Masai Mara is the largest game reserve in Africa and home to the Masai people, whose traditions still live on today. The reserve has an impressive population of big cats including cheetahs, lions and leopards, as well as grazers such as the wildebeest, gazelle and zebras who migrate yearly on a circular route through the Masai Mara in Kenya to the neighbouring Serengeti in Tanzania.

Mzima Springs in the Tsavo National Park is a series of four natural hot springs where hippos and Nile crocodiles thrive. Fruit trees also flourish in this area and the vervet monkeys can be seen gorging on the fresh fruit.

Tsavo National Park is split into two sections, but overall accounts for 4% of Kenya’s total land mass and is one of the largest national parks in the world. Tsavo East is the larger of the two halves and is home to a wide array of birds and animals, including elephants, bat-eared foxes, mongooses, rhinos, ground squirrels, warthogs, lions, leopards, giraffes, civets, buffalo, baboons, kingfishers, kestrels, secretary birds, and much, much more.

Kenya is the original wildlife holiday destination, where the concept of the ‘safari’ was developed, and is still one of the best places in the world to view wildlife, as well as its beautiful landscapes and the traditions and hospitality of its people.
