If one could say, 'this is where safari was born", it would be Kenya. An authentic safari experience in a vastly diverse landscape offering abundant and exhilarating wildlife experiences.
The Maasai Mara is generally the building block for any Kenyan safari experience, and from there you could build into the itinerary a visit to the Amboseli with the magnificent Mt Kilimanjaro backdrop and majestic 'Tusker' elephants, or alternatively hop over to Rwanda or Uganda for their ultimate primate experiences.
Kenya offers great diversity in the safari experience, from unimaginable luxury to walking safaris operating fly-camps in wilderness zones for small groups and families.
Like the Serengeti in Tanzania, Kenya's Maasai Mara becomes part of the 'great migration' on an annual basis, and knowing when and where to book is an essential aspect to your successful migration focussed safari. The Mara River crossings with scavenging crocodiles are the most prominent happenings associated with this mind-blowing event.
The best wildlife viewing months in Kenya are during the Dry season from late June to October. The wildebeest migration usually reaches the Maasai Mara in July and remains until October when they move back to the Serengeti in Tanzania.
