Kenya Safari

Kenya, is an old safari destination and remains a popular destination for its elegant accommodation options, and the large numbers of activities. The views on a Kenyan safari are glorious: Mount Kilimanjaro on the background of Amboseli National Park and the thousands of wildebeests during the trekking in Masai Mara. It has a unique reminiscent atmosphere, which makes it impossible to replicate..

Kenya is at the forefront of the safari industry and still has its nose ahead in terms of game and varied accommodation options. It has long been a mecca for those wanting to see in person the Great Plains made famous by documentaries. Kenya offers a wider range of safari activities than most other African countries, from traditional game drives to helicopter and air balloon safaris, deep sea fishing or hiking the second highest mountain on the African continent, Mount Kenya.

The best of Kenya's wildlife is crammed into the relatively small but famous Masai Mara National Reserve. The Masai Mara remains a thriving wildlife safari hotspot, although as a result of its fame there are plenty of tourists to be seen along with the wildlife. But for a reason, since the big 5 is relatively easily spotted in the park. Concluding, there is nothing quite like a safari in Kenya.
