Another Kenya Safari Guide
Kenya is one of the foremost up and coming holiday destinations in the world. People all over the globe are rapidly cottoning on to the almost unrivalled combination of stunning natural landscapes and magnificent wildlife.
Tailor-made Kenya holidays are the perfect way of ensuring you do not waste a moment of your epic journey into the wild, leaving you with an enviable host of unforgettable experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
In order to enjoy a successful safari holiday in Kenya, it is essential you do some planning and preparation. You need to consider exactly what it is you want to see, how long you have to explore and the budgets you can afford. The kind of safari holiday you want will dictate where you choose to go.
The vast majority of Kenyan safaris begin in the capital city of Nairobi. The iconic phenomenon that is the wildebeest migration takes place in Western Kenya which is also the home of the famous great lakes.
This region is also the location of the Masai Mara reserve, perhaps Kenya’s most famous safari destination. The migration takes place between July and November and the sheer number of wildebeests and zebras attract the attention of numerous predators, creating an incredible spectacle.
Amboseli National Park is situated in Eastern Kenya and boasts mile after mile of flat lands, making animal spotting relatively simple. Mount Kilimanjaro looms imposingly in the background, providing a stunning backdrop to your safari photographs.
For a quieter, more intimate, safari experience, head to Northern Kenya. Not only is this area far more tranquil in terms of a lack of other visitors, it is also home to a number of unique and unusual animals.
Reticulated giraffes, Somali ostriches and gerenuk antelopes are just some of the weird and wonderful creatures that can be seen here and not in the more popular and famous destinations.
If you are pressed for time, there are a number of four day safari options you can choose from. Most safari tours last for seven days but, if you have longer, it is also possible to choose excursions that stretch on for eleven days.
Wherever you go on your Kenyan safari, there are some safety essentials you need to take with you. These include various forms of sun protection, neutral coloured clothes to ensure you blend in, insect repellent, sturdy walking shoes and, of course, a camera.
