Location

This safari will cover several places in Kenya, including Nairobi, Samburu Game Reserve, Aberdare National Park, Lake Nakuru National Park, Maasai Mara Game Reserve, Lake Naivasha, Amboseli National Park, Tsavo West, Tsavo East, and Mombasa

Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in Kenya, outside the town of Naivasha in Nakuru County, which lies north west of Nairobi. It is part of the Great Rift Valley. The name derives from the local Maasai name Nai’posha, meaning “rough water” which the British later misspelled as Naivasha. The lake and its surrounds are rich in natural bounty, and the fertile soils and water supply have made this one of Kenya’s prime agricultural regions. Much of the lake is surrounded by forests of the yellow barked Acacia Xanthophlea, known as the yellow fever tree. These forests abound with bird life, and Naivasha is known as a world-class birding destination.

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National park is the second most [popular park after Masai Mara, 260 kilometers from Nairobi. The park is 39,206 hectares in size at the core of an 8,000 square kilometers ecosystem that spreads across the Kenya-Tanzania border. The park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants among other wildlife species. Its magnificent situation at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro gives it a spectacular view of the mountain and opportunity to meet the Maasai people. Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak.

Tsavo West National Park

Tsavo West National Park covers an area of 9,065 square kilometers. The Nairobi-Mombasa road and a railway line divide it from the adjoining Tsavo East National Park. Together with adjoining ranches and protected areas, they comprise the Tsavo Conservation Area. They have different eco-system. Tsavo West is a more wooded, hilly, dotted with volcanic cones, and more dramatic Lava flows. It is a popular destination on account of its magnificent scenery, Mzima Springs, Shetani Lava, rich and varied wildlife, good road system, black rhino reserve, rock climbing potential and guided walks along The Tsavo River.

Tsavo East National Park

Tsavo East National Park is by far the biggest of Kenya’s parks. At more than 13,700 square kilometers, Tsavo East is nine times bigger than the Maasai Mara National Reserve: indeed you could fit the whole of the Mara reserve into the southern tip of Tsavo East National Park, south of the Voi River. Most famous for its huge herds of dust-red elephants, more than 10,000 of them bulldoze their way around this vast park. Tsavo East has another big draw: you can set off on a game drive across the seemingly empty wilderness and return to camp three hours later without having seen a single another vehicle. There are very few camps and lodges here and, relatively speaking, almost none, with the majority of them close to Voi in the west, near the Mombasa highway. You often have the park to yourself, watching the wildlife under a huge sky: no matter what you’re looking at, Tsavo East always feels like a big spectacle.

Maasai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Kenya- Africa. The reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley in primarily open grassland. Wildlife tends to be most concentrated on the reserve’s western escarpment. During the winter when you cannot wear your purchased wholesale Havaianas, this is the best destination to visit. The Masai Mara is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas. The annual wildebeest’s migration alone involves over 1.5 million animals arriving in July and departing in November. There have been some 95 species of mammals, amphibians, and reptiles and over 400 birds species recorded on the reserve. Nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant, and it is for this reason a visitor hardly misses to see the big five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino).

Samburu National Reserve

The Samburu National Reserve is located on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro river in Kenya. On the other side of the river is the Buffalo Springs National Reserve. The park is 165 square kilometers in size and is situated 350 kilometers from Nairobi. It ranges in altitude from 800 to 1230 meters above sea level. Geographically, it is located in Samburu County. In the middle of the reserve, the Ewaso Ng’iro flows through doum palm groves and thick riverine forests. The Samburu National Reserve was one of the two areas in which conservationists George Adamson and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness made famous in the best-selling book and award winning movie Born Free. The Samburu National Reserve is also the home of Kamunyak, a lioness famous for adopting oryx calves.

Aberdare National Park

The Aberdare National Park is also known as the Majestic moorland is located about 100 kilometers north from Nairobi and stretches over a wide variety of terrains because it covers altitudes from about 7,000 feet (2,100 meters) to 14,000 feet (4,300 meters) above sea level. Established in May 1950, it covers an area of 766 square kilometers and forms part of the Aberdare Mountain Range. The park contains a wide range of landscapes - from the mountain peaks that rise to 14,000 feet (4,300 meters) above sea level, to their deep, V-shaped valleys intersected by streams, rivers, and waterfalls. Bamboo forests and rainforest are found at lower altitudes.
