Think of massive herds of migrating wildebeest, adorned tribesmen and women from the Masai Mara tribe and pink flamingo-covered shores, and you have a true African safari experience. Named after Mount Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa. While on a Kenya Tour you will be spoilt with vast and varied amount of wildlife. Namely, the endangered black rhino, eland, wildebeest, cape buffalo, elephant, giraffe, hippo, lion, leopard and cheetah, to name but a few. Kenya also has many expansive lakes, such as Lake Naivasha that is a haven for birdlife. Here you will find pelican, herons and cormorants, amongst others. An amazing bird to witness in flight is the African Fish Eagle, with its majestic hunter’s call.

Then there are the people – colourful, cultural and friendly. With their original tribesmen and women outfits, witnessing one of their tribal dances is a highlight on a Kenya Safari. The Maasai Mara are a Nilotic ethnic group with a semi-nomadic lifestyle. Expect chant lullabies and humming songs which culminates in a polyhonic syncopated rhythm. See them jumping several metres into the air while they perform the adumu/aigus’ dance and why not try it out yourself!

Why go on a Budget Kenya Tour?

Kenya is located in the wildlife-rich East Africa. The warm Indian Ocean runs along the country and offers beautiful beaches and sun-bathing opportunities. The landscape is one of savannah, lakelands, mountain highlands, the Great Rift Valley making this home to a plethora of wild animals such as lions, elephants and rhinos. There are many National Parks and reserves perfect for day and night safaris.

The Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park is home to hundreds of elephants, as well as buffaloes, hippos and a variety of birdlife, such as the pelican and egyptian geese. The ecosystem is mainly savannah with a few swamp areas which you can get a clear picture of from Observation Hill. One can also take in amazing views of Mount Kilimanjaro.

The Masai Mara National Reserve

Established in 1961, the Masai Mara National Reserve is situated in an enormous game park in Narok County, Kenya, and is joined to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The reserve was named in honour of the Masai folk, who were the original occupants of the region. Translated from the Masai word ‘Maa’ meaning ‘spotted’, the Masai Mara was also named due to how the area looks from a distance, with circles of trees, thickets, savannahs and cloud shadows that seem to dot the park. The reserve is renowned as one of the greatest and most popular wildlife parks in all of Africa, and is famous the world over for its incredible abundance of the big cats: lion, leopard and cheetah, as well as its annual migration during which masses of zebra, Thomson’s gazelle and 1.5 million wildebeest make their way to and from the Serengeti while crossing through the crocodile infested Mara river.

Lake Nakuru

Lake Nakuru is where you’ll see those thousands of pink flamingos, gathered together to feed on Lake Nakuru’s algae. This pink spectacle moves back and forth as they feed, and, occasionally and spectacularly, take to flight, creating a rosy drama African legends are made of.

Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha and its surrounds has fertile soils and plenty of water supply, making this area one of Kenya’s prime agricultural regions. Many forests surround this lake, drawing an astounding amount of birdlife. In fact, Lake Naivasha is known as a world-class birding destination. Keeping the birds company, are giraffe, buffalo, Colobus monkeys, hippos, zebras and many other game. Take a boat trip out on the lake, and try and spot an African Fish Eagle scoop itself a bite to eat.

Best times to go on a Kenya Tour:

Jul-Aug: During this time the migration crosses the Mara River where the animals stay in the Masai Mara until November (short rain season) before heading south back into the Serengeti.

Jan–Feb: Most people find the hot, dry weather during this time the most pleasant in comparison to the rest of the year’s weather. This is also the best time for bird watching, as birds in huge numbers flock to the lakes. Lake Nakuru is a hit with the flamingos.
