Location

This safari holiday will take place in various destinations in Kenya, including Samburu National Park, Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Lake Nakuru National Park, and the renowned Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Samburu National Park

Samburu National Reserve is a rugged and semi-desert park located in Samburu District in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. The park neighbors the homes of the Samburu tribe of Kenya, a tribe known for their remote culture and pastoral and nomadic way of life.

Due to its remote distance and the fact that it was inaccessible for many years, the park has retained a naturally serene and quiet feeling. Besides the numerous wildlife found in this game reserve, the park is also a bird haven.

Lake Nakuru National Park

On the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland, lies the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. Visitors can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges. Lake Nakuru National Park is ideal for birdwatching, hiking, picnic, and game drives.

Masai Mara Game Reserve

Masai Mara National Reserve is considered a “must see” for any visitor traveling on safari in Kenya. It is on the to do list of most Kenyan visitors because the park is graced by a wide variety of unique and exquisite wild life and birds. Masai Mara is the best place to see all of the big five animals (elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and buffalo) together. The famous wildebeest migration also takes place at the Mara.

Masai Mara National Reserve (also known as Masai Mara or The Mara) is situated within the Great Rift Valley in the southern part of Kenya. Measuring approximately 1,510 square kilometers (approximately 938 square miles) in size, this unfenced savanna grassland is roughly 150 miles southeast of Nairobi.

Maasai Mara derives its name from the indigenous people of Kenya, the Maasai tribe, and the Mara River that cuts through the park.The Masai Mara provides the best view of the famous wildebeest migration as the animals cross the Mara River between July and August.

The Mara is also home to the richest concentration of wildlife, including the big five (elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and buffalo), zebras, antelope, gnus, Oribis, hyenas, giraffes, warthogs, gazelles, hartebeests, hippos, crocodiles, and others. The park has the largest concentration of African lions, including the black-maned lion.

Birdlife is as plentiful as wildlife at the Masai Mara, which boasts over 400 different birds species. The park experiences a hot and dry climate with a regular rainfall season twice a year. The reserve’s topography is mainly open savanna (grassland) with clusters of acacia trees along the southeastern area of the park.

The Mara and Talek rivers grace the rolling plains of the reserve. Myriad seasonal rivers appear during the rainy season but dry out once the rains are gone. Maasai Mara National Reserve does not fall under the jurisdiction of the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS). Instead, it is managed by the local county council of Narok District.
