Why Kenya? It’s simple Kenya is the shining jewel of Africa!
The country has a great diversity of habitats open to endless opportunities for wildlife. Wildlife areas such as the Masai Mara Nature Reserve, Lake Nakuru, East and West Tsavo, and Amboseli National Parks are some of the natural wonders that can be seen.
It is truly a brilliant jewel in the crown of Africa, which of course we will accompany you to discover. But first, let us introduce you to the best destinations in Kenya.
Tsavo national park
The Tsavo National Park, southeast of Nairobi, is the largest in the country with an area of 21,000 km². It is located relatively close to Mombasa, and many tourists flock to it to enjoy the coastal holiday destinations. The park has around fifty species of mammals and 400 of birds, as well as a very varied landscape (here we can find the Chyulu Hills, the youngest volcanic mountain range in the world).
The Masai Mara National Reserve is described as the area that can be seen from afar. «Mara» in the Masai language means «Maa» for large reflections «Spotted» of clouds or thickets in the shape of a circle that shade the savannah.
Amboseli National Park
Amboseli has one of the densest elephant populations, approximately 1500 cross the park. During the dry season you will see these magical creatures turning into a gray to black shade, as herds spend their days in the centrally located Enkongo Narok swamp. Swamps are perennial and natural springs. ice glaciers melt into the volcanic rocks of Mount Kilimanjaro filling the underground rivers.
Just north of the town of Nanyuki, lies Laikipia. The vast area begins near the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya and continues to the edge of the Rift Valley. Laikipia is linked by a community of small and medium ranches. Farmers have designed this area to protect wildlife and offer you the experience of seeing wildlife live in harmony.
The Nakuru reserve, located around a large lake in the northwest of the country, is home to an important fauna in its almost 46 km²: Rothschild giraffes, leopards, lions, black rhinos, etc. But the most successful thing about the park are the millions of dwarf and large pink flamingos that regularly frequent the lake (unfortunately, when the water level is low the number drops). This spectacular influx of birds has earned the park the status of a bird sanctuary, a rare event in East Africa.
