Visit Amboseli N.P., famous for its big game including buffalo, elephant, lion, giraffe, hyena, cheetah and a variety of smaller carnivores and antelope species; and for its picturesque scenery, which benefits from the beautiful backdrop of snow covered Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain at 5,894m (19,340 ft). The park is largely arid lands of acacia and tall savannah grasses and in such an exposed landscape the animals are easy to observe. In places, subterranean springs have transformed the plain into marshland. Constantly changing, the springs have a determining influence on life in the park. In recent times infiltrated by salt water, they are modifying the ecosystem, causing the loss of certain plant species. This region is home to the nomadic Masai people and you will see their circular manyattas (villages), surrounded by thorny scrub fences, scattered across the plains.

9: Masai Mara N.P (09/10/11)
Masai Mara N.P. Although not Kenya’s largest park, the Mara, as the Kenyans call it, is undoubtedly its best known and contains great concentrations of wildlife. Covering an area in excess of 1,800 sq km (almost 700 sq miles) it was established in 1961 and adjoins the Serengeti in Tanzania forming the northern end of the great migration ecosystem. This is the traditional land of the Masai people, nomadic herders who choose a traditional lifestyle and who are permitted to graze their cattle in the area.
The park’s habitats include the forests along the banks of the Mara and Talek Rivers, acacia forests and open savannah. These various habitats are home to a great variety of game including lion, leopard, cheetah, zebra, wildebeest (gnu), giraffe, buffalo, jackal, topi, gazelles, impala and elephant. Hippopotamuses and crocodiles are plentiful in the rivers and the bird life is also abundant. No less than 53 different species of birds of prey alone have been recorded. From June through October you may see the annual migration as hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra move through the area in search of fresh grass. Driven on, by those behind, the first animals ford the Mara River. This perilous crossing undertaken by hordes of beasts is truly dramatic – many of them drown, others are bogged down in the mud.

12: Nairobi – Swahili coast (12/13/14)
Drive to Nairobi, transfer Airport for your flight to the Coast – enjoy delicious seafood and the lazy lifestyle of the Swahili coast. For the active there are swimming pools, a health club, tennis courts and golf and water sports can be arranged.
