The best way to experience Africas wildlife and culture and traditional tribal villages is an authentic Kenya safari. There is a variety of game parks, which mainly differs from the types of wild animals to be found, size and comfort. Basic bush camps offers budget prices, closer interaction with Kenyan daily life and Africas wilderness.
Luxury safari lodges let visitors feel like living as a “king” in Africa offering all kind of comfort such as a private buttler or private airstrip. Main cost factors of a Kenya safari are the park entrance fees (different for residents and non-residents) and transportation costs.
The highlight of most Kenya safaris is the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve, widely regarded as the best wildlife park in Kenya. Lions, leopards, buffaloes, elephants and rhinos may be spotted here, and more than a million wildebeests and zebras migrate annually to Masai Mara from the parched Serengeti plains of neighboring Tanzania.
You can also visit Masai villages, where guests can interact with local cattle-herders. In Kenya’s semi-arid, rugged northern region lies the Samburu Game Reserve, a small oasis that is home to many rare animals, including Grevy zebras, long-necked gerenuk antelopes, Somali ostriches and reticulated giraffes.
Many Kenya safaris also visit Lake Nakuru National Park, a relatively small preserve that has been designated as a rhino sanctuary and is considered to be one of the finest places for bird-watching.
Kenya Adventure Safaris are available year-round, although the best game-viewing periods are during the dry winter months of May through August and the warmer spring months of September and October.
Even Africa is a hot country, we have also mountains with snow. Trekking tours are going to the Mount Kenya (peak Nelion 5188m9) and Kilimanjaro in Tanzania (peak 5893m). Crowned by an eternal snowcap, Mountain Kilimanjaro is situated inside the Kilimanjaro National Park in Tanzania; it is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain on earth. Both Mt Kenya and Kilimanjaro are wild mountains in a very wild continent, awe inspiring and offer a route for every level of trekker and climber. It’s not surprising that trekking on these mountains is high on many travelers priority list.
