If you’re looking for an authentic African experience, Kenya is the place for you. It’s a country full of diverse landscapes and cultures, along with some unforgettable wildlife experiences. It’s easily one of my favorite corners of the world and one of the best destinations in Africa to go on safari. With endless plains that are full of wildlife, rolling hills, lush mountains, and a coastline that will leave you speechless, Kenya was made to explore!
Maasai Mara National Reserve (also "Masai Mara") is one of Africa's most magnificent game reserves. Bordering Tanzania, the Mara is the northern extension of the Serengeti and forms a wildlife corridor between the two countries. It's named after the statuesque, red-cloaked Maasai people who live in the park and graze their animals here, as they have done for centuries. In their language, Mara means "mottled," perhaps a reference to the play of light and shadow from the acacia trees and cloud-studded skies on the vast grasslands.
Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, Amboseli National Reserve is one of Kenya's most popular tourist parks. The name "Amboseli" comes from a Maasai word meaning "salty dust," an apt description for the park's parched conditions. The reserve is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close. Other wildlife commonly spotted in the park includes big cats, such as lion and cheetah, as well as giraffe, impala, eland, waterbuck, gazelle, and more than 600 species of birds.
Lake Nakuru National Park, in Central Kenya, is famous for its huge flocks of pink flamingos. The birds throng on Lake Nakuru itself, one of the Rift Valley soda lakes that covers almost a third of the park's area. The park was established in 1961, and more than 450 species of birds have been recorded here, as well as a rich diversity of other wildlife. Lions, leopards, warthogs, waterbucks, pythons, and white rhinos are just some of the animals you might see, and the landscapes range from sweeping grasslands bordering the lake to rocky cliffs and woodland.
A haven for birders, Lake Naivasha lies at the highest point of the Great Rift Valley. More than 400 species of birds have been spotted here, including African fish eagles, jacanas, white-fronted bee-eaters, and several species of kingfishers. One of the best ways to view the wildlife is by boat. Hippos slosh in the water, and giraffes, zebras, buffaloes, and eland graze around the edges of the lake. Keep a lookout for colobus monkeys in the canopies, too. Near Lake Naivasha, the Crater Lake Game Sanctuary features a wildlife-rich nature trail.

A great destination for vacation. Me and my family took a vacation of 3 weeks, it was nothing short of Bliss!! We were taken care of very well!
Daniel was an incredible guide, and showed us an unbelievable week. My partner and I spent seven days on safari. We went to Masa Mara, Lake Nakuru, Amboseli and Tsavo East. We saw 4/5 of the big five and so many other animals. The camps were modest, but nice. They all had a very warm vibe. The Red Elephant Lodge was amazing. Daniel could not have been a better guide.
