This Kenya safari takes you to explore Kenya for a wildlife experience with Meru national Park, Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru.
Meru National Park
The park is famous as the setting for Joy Adamson’s book “Born Free” – the story of the Adamson’s life and research amongst lion and cheetah. “Elsa” the lioness was the most well-known and her grave is marked here. It was here that Joy Adamson set her lioness Elsa free, and also it is in this park that the last white rhinos in Kenya lived until 1988. This area is a transition point from Central Kenyan to Northern Kenyan fauna, and you can see here Burch ell’s Zebras, Gravy Zebras, Maasai and reticulated giraffes, Grant gazelles and gerenuks. The park is criss-crossed by numerous streams and by the Tana river, the longest in Kenya, all of which attract an interesting variety of animals. There are also crocodiles, hippos and water fowl as well as herons.
Maasai Mara National Reserve
The Masai Mara is Kenya’s most popular safari destination and for good reason. It is a vast reserve of endless flat grassland crossed by rivers which play host to wildlife’s most spectacular moments. Its biggest drawcard is the Wildebeest Migration when vast hordes of Wildebeest roar through the park bringing in its trail a wake of mighty predators. If you’re lucky enough to be in Masai Mara during the migration pick a spot by the river and watch enraptured as crocs and lions compete to pick-off stragglers from the clattering herds of wildebeest.
