Amboseli
Set on the Kenyan plains with Mt Kilimanjaro as a backdrop in the distance, Amboseli is a “must-do” for most visitors to Kenya. The park is world-famous for its substantial population of African Elephants which can be seen in herds of over 100 individuals. In particular, the large bull elephants have some of the largest tusks in the animal kingdom.
Also waiting to be spotted are ample herds of buffalo, wildebeest, zebra and impala, as well as giraffes and warthog. With all this variety you can be sure a healthy population of predators also call Amboseli home. Lions, leopards, caracals, cheetahs, jackals, hyenas and serval cats are all frequently seen in the park.

Lake Nakuru
While in Nakuru, the famous images of millions of pink flamingos congregating on the surface of a soda lake is a familiar one at Lake Nakuru. It is here they gather in huge numbers to feed on the algae, making for a wildlife photographers dream come true. Yet there is more to Lake Nakuru than these bizarre looking birds. There is plenty of game to be spotted and the park is one of the best places in Africa to see the elusive Leopard.

Maasai Mara
An abundance of wildlife is on offer at Maasai Mara Game Reserve ranging from the smallest of insects and reptiles to the largest mammal walking the earth. Have your camera ready at all times on this three-day trip as there are surprises lurking behind every tree and under every rock.
Spend two nights in the famous reserve allowing you plenty of time to start ticking off the “Big Five” (Buffalo, Elephant, Leopard, Lion and Rhinoceros) or even the “Big Nine” (Cheetah, Zebra, Giraffe and Hippo). If wildlife is what you came to Kenya for, look no further.

CHECKLIST



Here are some of our recommendations to you for getting through a safari:

  • Plenty of sun protection, lotion or cream (High SPF).
  • A wide-brimmed hat to shade you from the sun, this should have string/straps if standing in the van or jeep as it could be blown off.
  • A good pair of sunglasses as you are on the equator where the sun is very strong. Prescription sun spectacles are not recommended as may scratch or fall off the vehicles.
  • Bottle’s or jugs of water to keep you hydrated. Spending a lot of time in the sun, even when wearing hats and sunglasses will dehydrate you in most cases.
  • A fleece/jumper/sweater for the early morning (or a safari jacket) and evening game drives, as it tends to get very chilly, especially in the highlands and in the Masai Mara.
  • Shorts and t-shirts or light trousers for the daytime.
  • Long trousers and long or short-sleeved shirts for the evening and protection from mosquitoes
  • Plenty of film or flash card memory for your camera and a battery charger for all electronic devices.
  • Swimming costumes/bathing suits as most of the lodges and camps have swimming pools.
  • A good pair of binoculars (there’s usually just one pair in vehicles).
  • A pair of safari shoes or trekking boots.
  • A pack of wet wipes.
  • Mosquito repellent.
