Safari trips in Kenya offer a chance to get close encounters with the big five and big cats in their natural habitats. The key national parks in Masai Mara National Reserve, Amboseli National Park, and Samburu National Park but there are many other amazing parks in Kenya with the largest being Tsavo which is divided to Tsavo east and Tsavo west then there is Lake Nakuru National Park, Lake Naivasha and Nairobi National Park in the capital of Kenya.
Kenya is one of the best countries on the continent for seeing large amounts of wildlife. In addition, Kenya Safari Tours are generally less expensive than in Tanzania, Botswana or Zambia. Prices are even more attractive for safari in Kenya in the low season (April, May and November). Game viewing is still good in the low season due to the excellent visibility of the open plains of the Maasai Mara and other reserves.
Kenya’s well-known parks have the reputation of being crowded in high season, and compared to less popular reserves, they are. However, this should be put into perspective. There are very few reserves in Africa that have such great sightings of the wildlife species many safari-goers want to see most (leopard, lion, cheetah) than in reserves like the Maasai Mara and Samburu, so having several other vehicles on some sightings is perhaps not a bad tradeoff.
Booking a Kenya safari with a private vehicle and guide is a great way to maximize the quality of your game viewing experience. If a few vehicles show up on your sighting, if you wish, you can simply search for another game viewing opportunity perhaps further off the beaten path. In other words, you have much more control of your experience in the bush. It is possible to get totally away from the crowds in some of the splendid private conservancies or the less popular national parks. Many private conservancies cater to a maximum of 12 to 24 guests in luxury accommodations and offer activities not allowed within the parks, such as night game drives and escorted walks. If you are visiting Kenya’s Masai Mara, you can opt to safari in the private conservancies rather than the main crowd which will save you the big crowds associated with Kenya safari Tours to Masai Mara operated in the main reserve.
The Masai Mara is the most popular reserve in Kenya for wildlife viewing and should, if at all possible, be included in your Kenya safari itinerary unless you will be touring the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania at the time of the year when the Serengeti Migration is more concentrated in Tanzania (November to July). In general, Kenya safari best time for game viewing is during the dry seasons, mid-December to March and July to October. Wildlife is easiest to spot in the Maasai Mara and Amboseli National Parks, which have vast wide-open plains and should be included in an itinerary for the best safari in Kenya.
Samburu is the country’s best northern reserve, and there are a number of excellent private reserves in the Laikipia region that offer day and night game drives, escorted walks and interesting tribal visits. The country is an ornithologist’s paradise, with over 1,000 species of birds recorded within its borders. Greater and lesser flamingos migrate along the Rift Valley and prefer the alkaline lakes of Magadi, Elmenteita, Nakuru, Bogoria or Turkana. Lakes Naivasha and Baringo are freshwater lakes.
Kenya Flying safaris are popular in Kenya as the country has an excellent network of scheduled flights to all the major reserves. Unique Kenya camel safaris or desert safaris are operated in the north, where you can spend time riding these “ships of the desert” and walking down dry riverbeds.
