Kenya Safari Parks
Regions to visit in Kenya
A family safari in Kenya promises a memorable adventure for kids and parents alike. Meet the Maasai people, who lend their name to one of the world’s greatest game reserves, the legendary Maasai Mara. Marvel at the jumping warrior dance of the Maasai warriors and follow your feet to one of the country’s iconic reserves where you can spot the Big 5 against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. Surpassing all else is the opportunity to encounter the whirling thunder of hooves as the Great Migration takes off into the sunset.
Tsavo West National Park
Located in the south-west of Kenya, Tsavo West National Park is one of Kenya’s larger parks covering an expanse of 3500 square miles. The park boasts a variety of scenic landscapes from swamps, natural springs and rolling plains to extinct volcanoes and rocky peaks. Home to the Big 5, Tsavo West is well-known for its large herds of elephant and archaeological sites dating back 6000 years.
Amboseli National Park
A safari to Amboseli National Park conjures up images of big tusked elephant herds set against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro in neighbouring Tanzania. Located 150 miles southeast of Nairobi, the park is home to wildebeest and zebras as well as lion, cheetahs and hyenas. The park features a number of quality lodges and camps, as well as large concessions of Maasai community land.
Masai Mara National Park
Sharing a border with Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park the Masai Mara is undoubtedly Kenya’s premier safari destination. The park consists of 583 square miles of endless plains and breathtaking vistas. Large predators and an excellent concentration of game can be spotted year-round, however, the reserve truly comes to life between August and October when the annual wildebeest migration crosses into Kenya from Tanzania.
