Discover a few of Kenya’s gems in 6 days! You go the first day to Amboseli National Park. The Amboseli National Park belongs to the elite of Kenya’s national parks. It’s greatly known for its accessibility to the hundreds of big-tusked elephants and closely bordered against, Mount Kilimanjaro (5895m). With clear weather (usually at dawn and/or dusk), you will be awed by the stunning views of Africa’s highest peak.
The park is also home to an abundance of wildlife, apart from the guaranteed elephant sightings, you’ll also see wildebeest and zebras, with a reasonable chance to catch some lions and hyenas. The park is also home to over 370 bird species.
Bird lovers on this safari won’t be disappointed. Because we’ll continue the safari to Lake Nakuru. Nakuru is home to more than 450 bird species, where you can easily locate and identify kingfishers, long-crested eagles, goliath herons and most especially famed pink flamingos. Beyond the lake, the park encompasses neighboring wilderness, where you can see sightings of black and white rhinos and Rothschild’s giraffes. They are joined by zebras, buffalos, warthogs, waterbucks, as well as, stalking predators such as leopards and spotted hyenas. Into the green forests are gazelles, impalas and Colobus monkeys. A park which has much to offer for its comparable size.
At least we will visit Masai Mara. Where is a large number of other plains game include zebras, different species of antelopes, giraffes, and warthog, which are residents of the are all year round. The Mara is a perfect kingdom for the lions but there are also smaller predators such as cheetahs, hyenas, and jackals that roam the Mara area.
Another natural inhabitant is, of course, the Masai people. A semi-nomadic ethnic group known as fierce warriors and have largely remained very independent, staying strong to their traditional values and lifestyle. The Masai never hunt, but live peacefully alongside the wildlife in harmony, this co-existence makes the Masai Mara one of the world’s most interesting and unique wilderness regions.
