Safaris in Kenya

Kenya is the home country of safari. In the wildlife-rich and pristine national parks you travel through wide savannas, dense forests and fascinating dry landscapes and keep an eye out for the Big Five and other wild animals. Countless wildebeest and zebras await you in the world-famous Masai Mara for the annual “Great Migration”. After an exciting Kenya safari relax on the dream beaches of the 500 km long coast under coconut palms. As a mountaineer, an unforgettable adventure awaits you on Mount Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa.

Landmarks in Kenya

Masai Mara Game Reserve

The Masai Mara is definitely the best known and most beautiful sanctuary in Kenya and a must on every Kenya safari. Together with the Serengeti in Tanzania, the Masai Mara forms a cohesive ecosystem in which around two million animals per year are on a perpetual migration in search of water and food. In addition to buffalos, lions, leopards and elephants, with a little luck you can also see rhinos in the Masai Mara.

Lake Nakuru National Park

Two things make a visit to Lake Nakuru National Park particularly worthwhile: The Soda Lake, which makes up a large part of the park and at the same time attracts thousands of flamingos, which make the lake shimmer pink. And the black and white rhinos, some of which you can experience up close here. The endangered rhinos have become extremely rare due to poachers, especially in East Africa.

Lake Naivasha National Park

The Lake Naivasha National Park is especially scenic and an Eldorado for bird lovers. A highlight of the park are boat tours to Crescent Island, where sea eagles, pelicans and cormorants and many other birds can be observed. In the park you can also visit Elsamere, the home of the author and behavioral researcher Joy Adamson, who wrote the world-famous book "Born free" about the lioness Elsa. Today a museum is housed here.

Amboseli National Park

Elephants or giraffes in front of the backdrop of the majestic Kilimanjaro with its snow-capped hilltop - these are world-famous pictures and were all taken in the Amboseli National Park. In addition to a large population of elephants, the Amboseli also has buffalo, hippopotamus, lions, leopards, cheetahs and even wild dogs, to name just a few species.

Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks

The largest nature reserve in Kenya is the Tsavo National Park. Many different animal species live in an area that is half the size of Switzerland and the Big Five with lion, buffalo, elephant, rhinoceros and leopard can also be seen in the two parks. Tsavo West and Tsavo East are separated by the road from Nairobi to Mombasa and the railway line. The two parks are particularly popular with visitors to the coastal region due to their accessibility for short safaris.

Mt Kenya National Park

At 5,199 meters, Mt Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa. Many mountaineers who want to climb the roof of Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, try to acclimatise on Mt Kenya. Compared to its big neighbor on the Tanzanian side, you cannot conquer the summit of Mt Kenya without mountaineering skills. Elephants and buffalos live on the mountain slopes of Mt Kenya, which enable exciting animal encounters on the ascent.

Lamu

The island of Lamu is mainly known for the Swahili culture that still prevails here and the historical buildings. You won't find any cars on the island!

North and south coast of Mombasa

White dream beaches, impressive diving areas, water sports or just relaxation - all of this can be found on the coasts around Mombasa. Depending on the budget and personal preferences, the most diverse hotels and resorts offer all the amenities that holidaymakers are looking for.

Best travel time for Kenya safaris

The best time to visit Kenya depends on the visitor's individual needs. During the great rainy season in East Africa from the beginning of April to the end of May, only lodge safaris are generally recommended. This is the time when prices are cheapest and the parks are the least visited. It is usually dry from June to the end of October. The months of July and August are the most popular travel months in most countries due to the holiday season and are often very well booked. November (small rainy season) and the beginning of December are a kind of mid-season, while the high season begins again from Christmas to the end of March in the dry season. January and February are the hottest months and, especially on the coast, often very humid due to the sometimes very high humidity.

Due to the location of Kenya and the partly cheap intra-African flights, a trip to Kenya can also be combined with a visit to the last wild mountain gorillas in Uganda or Rwanda, or the sights of Tanzania (Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater to name just a few) . To relax and unwind after a strenuous safari or trekking, a swim on the beautiful beaches of the east coast of Kenya or on the spice island of Zanzibar is ideal.
