Highlights of Kenya

A special offer for a safari to Kenya’s lakes and premier game reserves, the Mara and Amboseli following the 2020 Amboseli elephant baby boom

2021 is a good time for Kenya for two good reasons: firstly visitor numbers have fallen and the country needs tourism to support its people and its animals; secondly it is an amazing country and currently not crowded with visitors with 2021 likely to remain quiet  for improved game viewing. Jules Verne would like to play their part by offering to our regular travellers first option for an exceptional tariff including two of Kenya’s best game reserves.

Amboseli National Park is a green swampland at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest Mountain in Africa which is fed by the ancient volcano’s underground streams and dotted with acacia trees and expanses of seasonal green or dry plains. The park has a large concentration of wildlife, particularly in the dry season (Jul-Oct). There are thousands of elephants, including some of the largest in Africa and 2020 has seen a baby boom due to good rains and less visitors; catch sight of buffalo and lions in the open savannah, rolling hills and swamplands. Other wildlife inhabiting the grasslands includes cheetah, rhino, waterbuck, zebra and warthog.

‘The Mara’ is a Big Five reserve and a Big Cat haunt. Along with the incredible sights of thousands of animals is a virtually unrivalled variety of birdlife. It will be quieter and best value in early 2021, the green season when most young animals are born, but it might also be a year to pay a bit more to visit Kenya’s greatest game reserve, the Masai Mara in the period of the world’s greatest natural spectacle, the Great Wildebeest Migration from the Serengeti (normally August to September), the promise of rain and fresh life giving grass in the north brings more than 1 million Wildebeest together as they pour across the border into the Mara). Home to thousands of animals, the Masai Mara game drives are a real highlight.
