Highlights of Kenya

From the foot of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, to the lakes of the Great Rift Valley, and the route of the wildebeests’ Great Migration, this safari includes the elephants of Amboseli, birdlife on the shores of Elementaita, and the Big Cats of the Masai Mara

In a week of wildlife-watching, we visit two ‘Big Five’ reserves, where lions and leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalos rule the roost, as we explore the untamed wilderness of three National Parks, the natural habitats of hundreds of bird types, predators and prey, and the tallest and heaviest land animals on earth, the giraffe and the African elephant. The safari starts in Amboseli. With a backdrop of majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, indigenous Masai communities, and resident mammals ranging from large herds of elephants to little dik-dik antelopes, the park is an all-round experience of Kenya’s culture and creatures.

Lake Elementaita is UNESCO listed to preserve its 400 species of birds, including cormorants, kingfishers, pelicans, and Pallid harriers, and flamingos feeding in the shallows of the soda lake, which often turns pink with the algae that attracts them; while at Lake Nakuru National Park, fifty mammal species thrive in its varied landscape. Our last park is the 583sq.mile spread of the Masai Mara Reserve, famed for the greatest show on earth, the annual Great Migration, when more than a million wildebeest, joined by hundreds of thousands of zebra, make a grand circuit between ‘the Mara’ and neighbouring Serengeti.
