The world watches in wonder as countless wilderbeest and zebras accompanied by hordes of wildlife thunder across from the bordering Serengeti during their annual migration searching for greener pastures. It is home to the black maned lion, cheetah and other predators.

Samburu National Reserve

Situated on the banks of the Ewaso Ngiro River in the dry northern reaches of Kenya. It is a hot and arid area characterized by a perched landscape of hills and plains. The presence however of the river and its shady trees attracts plenty of wildlife. Giraffe, buffalo, waterbuck and zebra (including the endangered Grevy Zebra) lion, leopard and cheetah are also quite easy to spot thanks in part to the lack of grass cover. Also home to large herds of elephants.

Amboseli National Park

Located at the foot of Africa’s highest mountain, the snow-capped peak of Mt Kilimanjaro rising above a saucer of clouds dominates every aspect of Amboseli. Its home to lion, elephant, leopard, rhino, cheetah, buffalo and hosts of plain’s game, creating Kenya’s most sought after photographer’s parades.

Other attractions include Lugard Falls and the Mzima Springs, source of much of Mombasa’s fresh water.

Mt. Kenya National Park

It’s a perfect place to relax after a dusty safari and get a different take on Kenya, particularly as it is located between some of Kenya’s top national parks: Aberdare, Samburu and Meru. Mt. Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain, the forest ai home to elephant, buffalo, monkeys, antelope and giant forest hog. The birdlife around the forest is also prolific, ranging from huge eagles to multi-coloured sunbirds.

Kenyan Coast

A sojourn to Kenya’s Coast is a perfect way to kick back and relax, luxuriate in the sun, Scuba dive, take a big-fishing trip or dhow cruise, discover Mombasa or enjoy a bush trip into the traditions and culture of the coastal people.

Along the length of this coast, Arab and Portuguese forts, old town and the overgrown deserted ruins of Swahili outposts bear witness to this fascinating history. Life has continued unhurried and unchanged for more than 400 years in the winding medieval streets and bustling markets of Lamu and Mombasa.
