THE HEART OF KENYA IS WILDLIFE
Discover Our Awesome Parks, Reserves, and Conservancies
Let us take you to another world -
Kenya’s wild animal parks and reserves
Or perhaps we should say worlds. Because Kenya’s parks cover every sort of landscape – from the red dust plains of Tsavo to the rolling savannahs of the golden Masai Mara Reserve. And there’s also Rift Valley lakes, alpine rainforests, and tropical jungle waiting for your first steps of exploration.
But not all safaris are on dry land. You can even swim, snorkel, and dive amongst dolphins in the brilliant lagoons and corral gardens of our Marine National Parks.
From the Big Cats to Chimpanzees
These amazing parks will bring you up close to brilliant worlds of wildlife –thousands of wildebeests rumbling forward in the Great Migration and prides of lions stalking their flow.
Endangered rhinos and chimps at protected reserves, invite your gaze and delight. Great herds of towering elephants show off their immense tusks at close range. Peacefully grazing antelope, gazelle, and giraffe invite closer inspection on walking and even bicycling safaris.
Picture yourself in a natural setting amongst nature’s most beautiful wildlife and we’ll take you to a park that will surpass even your imagination.
The Great Savannah Parks
Masai Mara National Reserve – You’ve probably heard of the Masai Mara – it’s Kenya’s most popular park, home of the Great Migration of wildebeests and zebras. It’s also where you’ll likely see the most lions and other predators.
The Tsavo Parks: East & West – These are Kenya’s oldest and largest reserves. Under their endless skies and over infinite plains you’ll find Africa’s Big Five, plus dozens of wildlife like giraffe, zebra, baboon, monkey, impala, and even crocodile.
The Elephant Parks
Amboseli National Park – Perhaps the best elephant gazing in the world is found
in this photogenic park seated at the base of the great Mt. Kilimanjaro. This small park boasts guaranteed sightings of large-tusked elephants,
Samburu National Park – To the north, this wide-open reserve offers lots of parkland to discover its over 1000 elephants. Plus, opportunities to visit with the local communities of indigenous Samburu People.
The Sanctuary Parks
Lake Nakuru National Park – This beautiful Rift Valley lake offers voluminous birdlife and sometimes even pink flamingoes. But the protected sanctuary here will also bring you opportunities to see one of Kenya’s largest population of endangered black rhinos.
Ol Pejeta Wildlife Sanctuary – A versatile private reserve, Ol Pejeta is home to Africa’s Big Five. But what mainly puts it on the map are its two sanctuaries for threatened rhinos and orphaned and abused chimpanzees.
The Marine Parks
Kisite Mpunguti Marine National Park –
Yes, Kenya is also a wildlife paradise–undersea! Want to swim with the dolphins and sea turtles? There are lots of opportunities to snorkel or dive at this great corral barrier reef.
Watamu Marine National Park –
Take a water safari through the park’s
colorful lagoons and brilliant coral gardens. You’ll find yourself playing amongst turtles, dolphins, and bright tropical fish.
The Unusual Parks
Nairobi National Park –
Probably the only one of its kind – go on safari just minutes from downtown Nairobi. Lion, leopard, buffalo, and giraffe can be spotted with the skyscrapers of the city in the distance,
framing the scene. Not a zoo or an attraction – it’s the real thing, just a quick trip from your hotel.
Aberdare National Park –
This is a cool land of mountain streams, waterfalls, and highland rainforests. You’ll be looking for black rhino, antelope, baboon, monkey, and the bongo – a giant antelope that makes its home in the alpine bamboo forest.
Meru National Park –
An often-overlooked park, the empty rolling hills and forest are a private treasure to be enjoyed. This untouristed spot offers lion, elephant, buffalo, zebra, black and white rhino, hippo, and crocodile.
