Where to Go
Maasai Mara Game Reserve – As one of the world’s greatest wildlife destinations, the Maasai Mara, with its abundant wildlife and stunning landscapes, will not disappoint!
Amboseli National Park – Where you’ll see one of the most iconic images in Africa – elephants on the vast open plains against the backdrop of the world’s tallest freestanding mountain – Kilimanjaro.
Samburu National Reserve –One of Kenya’s secret treasures. Rich in wildlife with an abundance of the Samburu Special Five – the rare Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and beisa oryx. The Samburu culture is a very prominent part of the experience here.
Laikipia Plateau – Gateway to Kenya’s Northern Territory, this wild and remote region has a wildlife population density second only to the Maasai Mara. Ranch fences and cattle have been largely removed permitting wildlife to flourish and return to ancient migration patterns.
Ol Pejeta Conservancy –East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary and the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees.
Lake Nakuru National Park – During peak season millions of flamingos and pelicans flock to Lake Nakuru. The park is also home to Kenya’s largest population of rhinos.
When to Go
While Kenya does not have distinct seasons and dramatic temperature changes, it does have “long rains” and “short rains.” June through November is the best time to travel with warm days and cool nights; however November starts to see short, scattered rains. April and May typically bring heavy, intermittent rains and many safari camps are closed during this time.
