People and culture
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.
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.
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.
