Amboseli National Park:

Located in the southern reaches of Kenya, the Amboseli National Park is renowned for its excellent variety of wildlife such as Masaai giraffe, elephant, lion and cheetah and not surprisingly it is one of Kenya's most popular parks. The landscape of Amboseli is dominated by the majestic snow cap of Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as open plains, acacia woodland, swamps and the massif of Ol Doinyo Orok. The birding is excellent, especially closer to the lakes and swamps. The park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to large herds of elephants among other wildlife species. Other attractions of the park include opportunities to meet the Maasai people and soak up spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.

Lake Nakuru National Park

Located in the Great Rift Valley surrounded by yellow acacia woodlands and bushy shrublands, the Lake Nakuru National Park was created to protect the Lake and its large flocks of Lesser Flamingo, which are drawn to the algae that flourish in the saline waters of this soda lake. The national park is inhabited by over 50 mammal species including hippo, black and white rhino, Rothschild giraffe, buffalo and eland. Known as a bird watcher’s paradise, the park is home to over 450 bird species. Visitors can look forward to hiking through the scenic landscape, picnicking next to this magnificent lake, and spotting an array of wildlife on a game drive. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the beautiful Makalia Waterfall.

Masai Mara National Reserve:

The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The undeniable highlight of the Masai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, elephants, giraffes, gazelles and eland can also be spotted in the reserve. Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential.

Aberdare National Park:

Aberdare National Park Aberdare National is home to Treetops Lodge, the wooden lodge that was built on stilts overlooking a waterhole. This is where Princess Elizabeth became queen of England during her stay there in 1952. Aberdare is also the most likely place to see the rare Bongo antelope. As part of the Aberdare Mountain Range, the park offers stunning landscapes. The National Park itself is made up of open Afro-alpine moorland, hills and crags, thickets of giant heather, tussock grass and bogs. The flanks of the Aberdare Mountains are covered with dense indigenous and bamboo forest, hidden trout streams and waterfalls.

Tsavo East National Park

Besides being the largest national park in Kenya and being home to the  ‘Red Elephants’, Tsavo East National Park is also famous for the story of the Man-Eaters of Tsavo where  2 male lions attacked workers constructing the Kenya-Uganda railway and terrorized the entire  labour force. That was almost a century ago. Today, this park is known for its huge herds of ‘red elephants’ that dust themselves with the red-oxide soil so typical of Tsavo. Other species to be on the look-out for are the endemic desert warthog, hirola (also known as Hunter's hartebeest) and Peter's Gazelle.  A safari to Tsavo East can be easily combined with Amboseli or beach stay in Mombasa or Diani. The park is easy to navigate as it predominantly lies on a plateau of open thorn country scattered with rocky outcrops and giant baobab trees.  The Yatta plateau, one of the world’ longest lava flows runs along the entire western boundary. Possible safari Activities in Tsavo East: -   North of the Galana river is  remote wilderness with dense Acacia commiphora woodland – good for walking safaris.  The area around Mudanda Rock forms a natural dam with an observation point for excellent game viewing as concentration of elephant and other wildlife come to drink.
