Samburu, Lake Nakuru, & Maasai Mara Camping Safari
The first thing you’ll notice on your Samburu Safari is that it is worlds apart from the other parks in Kenya. It is a hot and arid area characterized by a parched landscape of hills and plains. Good news for the safari enthusiast is that the refreshing waters of the Ewaso Ngiro River run through Samburu and attract plenty of wildlife.
Samburu is home to large herds of elephants and elusive leopards. It is also well known for providing the opportunity to see wildlife that only lives in the dry north of Kenya. Your safari wouldn’t be complete without seeing a gerenuk – an odd yet distinguished gazelle with a long neck, which stands on its hind legs to feed.
Masai Mara Safari
Why go on a Masai Mara Safari? Simply stated, it is the best destination in Kenya for viewing wildlife – and lots of it! The Masai Mara is home to a great wildlife spectacle. Sometime between August and November over 2 million wildebeest migrate from the Serengeti in search of water and grazing.
For many people, timing their Masai Mara Safari to coincide with the migration seems vital – but with a very abundant and healthy resident population of animals, a holiday to the Masai Mara is great at any time of the year. With its rolling grasslands and wide-open savannah, the Masai Mara is the kind of African landscape that you see in the movies!
