From the Africa's wildlife in the Masai Mara to the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, take a journey through our top 5 African safari destinations in Kenya, the gateway to Eastern Africa.
1. Masai Mara: Best Place to See African Wildlife and Game
There is a very good reason the Masai Mara is such a popular safari destination. It is hands down the best place to see wildlife in Kenya. It is also stunning. The Mara River winds through vast, open short-grass plains and the Oloololo Escarpment provides a breathtaking backdrop. Flat-topped acacias occasionally dot the landscape, and ballooning over this area will give you silent, low-level views of hippos, buffalo, giraffes, elephants and, of course, herds of wildebeest and zebra that you will never forget. The reserve is actually a continuation of the plains of the Serengeti as they cross the border from Tanzania into Kenya.
2. Ambolseli: The Majestic Mount Kilimanjaro
3. Mount Kenya in Laikipia: Elevated Adventures
This is an up and coming wildlife area of Kenya. The Laikipia National Park was created on November 8, 2011 and is a very new national park. It is an open savanna ecosystem that supports a wide diversity of species, from the endangered Grevy’s zebra and elephant to the patas monkey, Somali ostrich, and Beisa oryx. It is also central to many surrounding private ranches such as the Ol Pejeta Ranch and the Segera Ranch, where you can enjoy safaris unaffected by national park restrictions. Discover More
