Kenya National Parks preview

Maasai Mara National Reserve

is arguably Kenya’s most popular reserve. Much of the film Out of Africa was filmed here. A spectacle worth seeing is the annual migration of millions of wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles from the Serengeti plains across the Mara River.

Amboseli National Park

sits at the foot of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. The mountain’s snow-capped peak, which can be seen rising above the clouds, dominates Amboseli and forms the backdrop to an impressive display of wildlife.

Samburu National Park

is one of the lesser-known national parks, but is nevertheless teeming with life. Situated alongside the EwasoNyiro River, it attracts large numbers of animals from the surrounding plains.

Lake Nakuru National Park

is small in size, but rich in biodiversity. Best known for the thousands of flamingos nesting along the shores, the surface of the shallow lake is often unrecognisable due to the continually shifting mass of pink. The rhino sanctuary is also a must-see.

Mombasa and the Coast

are among Kenya’s premier attractions, with a chain of beaches stretching from Tanzania to Somalia. Offshore are extensive coral reefs, with excellent diving and snorkelling, while dotted along the coast are traditional villages and the ruins of Arab settlements. Mombasa is the main city on the coast.
