Kenya is one Africa’s finest gems, showcasing a massive array of diverse wildlife. Through African Overland Tours, you can choose from a range of accommodated safaris and tours of Kenya that allow you to personally experience this incredible country.
When it comes to spotting wildlife, Kenya is renowned for offering its travellers some of the most phenomenal game-viewing opportunities in the world. It is in this magnificent region that you can also find one of the most popular game parks in the world – the Masai Mara National Reserve.
Head out on one of the shorter budget Kenya safaris that last for around four days, allowing you time to explore the Masai Mara in search of Africa’s Big Five, as well as stand witness to the marvellous Lake Nakuru, where thousands of flamingos gather to form a pink fringe around the water’s edge. You could also choose to extend your stay in Kenya through various longer overland packages and tours that stretch across several different countries, some of which include the experience of a lifetime in the form of an awe-inspiring gorilla safari in Uganda.
Perhaps one of the greatest things about East Africa is that it never has an ‘off-season’. Instead, exquisite opportunities for game-viewing are abundantly available throughout the entire year. When booking you Kenyan safari, however, keep in mind that there a particular buzz during the dry season, which runs from May throughout August.
If you plan on experiencing an adventure safari, take full advantage of the phenomenon of the country and plan your trip during the happening of the Great Migration, which typically runs from July through to October. During this breath-taking spectacle, millions of animals – from wildebeest to gazelles, a variety of other buck, and zebra – embark on an epic adventure, traveling from the renowned Serengeti National Park in Tanzania towards the greener pastures of the Masai Mara. This event is now deemed one of the world’s Seven New Wonders, and has been become known as the World Cup of Wildlife.
Safari tours through Kenya allow for plenty of animal-spotting opportunities, from crocodiles patiently waiting to strike as the animals cross deep rivers, to big cats excitedly chasing down prey on vast, open land. Visit Lake Naivasha where you are bound to be introduced to plenty of pelican, herons, and cormorants (among others), as well as perhaps an African Fish Eagle if luck is on your side!
As with all of our safaris, you have the choice of cheap, budget safaris, or comfort options – where you will stay in top lodges, hotels and chalets. However, no matter what your choice, a tour through Kenya will leave your soul feeling rejuvenated, and your heart with a longing to soon return to the Motherland. From the thriving city of Nairobi to the stunning Great Rift Valley, Kenya will leave you astounded and breathless.
