When it comes to having a memorable wildlife viewing experience on a Kenya Safari, your choice of the safari destinations to visit can make all the difference. A visit to the top wildlife viewing destinations in Kenya guarantees you a great show as you explore the wild with an experienced driver/guide. Each of the safari destinations in Kenya has something unique to offer.
For a truly memorable wildlife viewing experience, make sure you include all or any of these destinations in your itinerary. Masai Mara National Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park, Samburu National Reserve, Amboseli National Park and Tsavo National park. In these top wildlife destinations, you can experience the best of Kenya’s wildlife in their natural habitat.
Masai Mara National Reserve
In the Masai Mara, you will get close encounters with the Great Wildebeest migration, which is a rare wildlife spectacle only experienced in the Masai Mara and Serengeti. Great wildebeest herds, closely followed by other herbivores make their way in and out of the reserve each year as they search for pasture. During your Kenya wildlife safari, you can catch the migration from mid-July to Mid-September. Other than the wildebeest migration, the big five and smaller animals are also found in the Masai Mara.
Lake Nakuru National Park
Visiting the Lake Nakuru National Park as part of your single-day or multi-day Kenya Safari also gives you the opportunity to see some of the unique animals that inhabit Kenya’s parks. Some of the animals that you’ll likely encounter during your visit to the park include giraffes, hippos, Buffalo, Zebra and Rhino. Lions, leopards and hyenas can occasionally be sighted. An experienced driver/guide will be of great help to ensure you can see some of the animals sighted occasionally.
Samburu National Reserve
Similar to the Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru National Park, Samburu National Reserve offers an equally rewarding experience in terms of wildlife viewing. As the Ewaso Nyiro river runs through the reserve, it brings life to the otherwise dry and inhabitable lands. Animals congregate alongside the river banks to drink and it is here that you have the opportunity to sight some of the unique animals that inhabit the Samburu National Reserve.
Amboseli National Park
Amboseli National Park is home to gentle giants. Large elephant herds freely roam the plains of the Amboseli National Park, as the backdrop scene of Mount Kilimanjaro is visible from a distance. The elephant herds have helped shape the landscape of the park, their large numbers bringing a unique perspective to the safari destination compared to other destinations in Kenya. The Amboseli is close to Nairobi, making it an ideal addition to your single-day or multi-day safari itinerary.
Tsavo National Park
Tsavo National park, which is famous for the man-eating lions, is another top wildlife viewing destination in Kenya. Being one of the largest and oldest safari destinations in Kenya, the Tsavo National park is home to a large number of unique animals and bird species. You can choose Tsavo National Park as part of your southern circuit safari itinerary.
