WILDLIFE OPTIONS

Masai Mara National Reserve

The Masai Mara National Reserve is almost always included in Kenya Safari itineraries. A Masai Mara safari displays the annual spectacle, which is the great migration. First and foremost, among them is Masai Mara, arguably the most famous national park in the world, which has been the subject of multiple documentaries like the BBC Big Cats Diary. Masai Mara is the center stage of the great annual migration of over 2 million Wildebeests and Zebras which is often touted as the 8th wonder of the world. The abundance of big cats, birds, and other wildlife in the Mara just amazes a first-time visitor, and even continues to amaze veterans as well. At Masai Mara, one can see all the African big 5, as also over 470 bird species have been recorded there. Some of the notable mammals are Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs, Rhino, Giraffe, Zebra, elephants, Hippopotamus, Impala, Thomson Gazelle, Eland, Waterbuck, Warthog, and of course the Wildebeest.

Lake Nakuru National Park

This is a 45 square km lake, which is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes. Circumventing the lake is a beautiful forest which is famous for its Black Rhino and White Rhino population, Rothschild Giraffe (One found in Masai Mara is Masai Giraffe), plenty of birds (many are not found in Masai Mara), and earlier it was a great habitat for thousands of flamingos. The park is characterized by grasslands and woodlands. Now, still flamingos are found there but not in abundance. Nakuru also has a good Lion population which is seen often. Witnessing millions of pink flamingos crowding the lake is an iconic sight during a Kenya vacation.

Amboseli National Park

After a Masai Mara luxury safari, the second most popular national park is Amboseli. It is synonymous with its large elephant herds and the dramatic views of Mount Kilimanjaro. It is the highest peak in the entirety of the African continent. Along with elephants, numerous plains animals, as well as predators like cheetahs and lions, can be spotted. Panoramic views, incredible sunrise and sunsets, and excellent wildlife viewing are just some of the things offered by Amboseli. Africa's tallest peak is located in Tanzania just across the border.

Laikipia Plateau – The Laikipia Plateau stretches till Lake Baringo, covering a vast area. It is one of the lesser-known wildlife areas, perfect for spending a tranquil yet luxury Kenya safari. The huge plateau is further divided into ranches or wildlife conservancies. They house several endangered species. Inclusive in its wildlife population is the rare black rhinos and wild dogs that are seen sprawled on the plateau.

Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake about a 2-hour drive from Nairobi. It is famous for its Pelican population, some Flamingos, and the African Fish Eagle. The primary way of enjoying the wildlife is through boating safaris on the lake. Also seen abundantly are Hippos floating in the water while boating.

Ol Pejeta

Ol Pejeta is a private conservancy (all others listed above are national parks) that is home to a good black rhino population and shelters the last two remaining northern white rhinos on this planet. It is also iconic because one has to cross the equator while driving to Ol Pajeta from Nairobi. Ol Pejeta is just north of the equator, while Nairobi lies in the south. Ol Pejeta is a 400 sq. kilometer conservancy located in the Laikipia region. Other wildlife species seen during a luxury Kenya safari in Ol Pejeta are lions, giraffes, and elephants.

Samburu National Park

The Samburu Reserve is a premier destination, commonly seen in many Kenya safari itineraries. It boasts pristine wilderness and borders the Ewaso Ng’iro River. Samburu is famous for its frequent leopard sightings, rivaling or sometimes even more than Masai Mara. That apart it has a very unique forest landscape, which is unlike most the other Kenyan national parks. It is also famous for its Grevy's zebra population, which is another kind of Zebra than what is seen in Masai Mara and most parks in Kenya.
