  • Everything You Need to Know About Lake Nakuru National Park

    The name of both a large soda lake and the national park that surrounds it, Lake Nakuru has become synonymous with vast flocks of brightly coloured flamingos with thousands and sometimes millions of the iconic birds calling the lake's shores home. The park is also famous for its rhinoceros sanctuary, in which 70 white rhinoceros and 25 critically endangered black rhinoceros can be seen. This concentration is one of the largest in Kenya, and makes the park the ideal place to visit if you are eager to see these beautiful creatures in the wild. Lake Nakuru is often combined with visits to its neighbouring lakes, Lake Bogoria and Lake Naivasha. While not within the park boundaries, both lakes offer distinct experiences that are worth considering.

    Chances are you've seen a photo taken in Amboseli National Park before. If you've seen a picture with African wildlife against the backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro, you're looking at a picture of Amboseli. Despite "Kili" being located in Tanzania and Amboseli being proudly Kenyan, the park offers the best views of Africa's highest mountain. Second only to the Masai Mara in terms of popularity, Amboseli is a photographer's dream and offers great year-round game viewing. The park is home to four of the Big Five, with only the rhinoceros absent.
  • Everything You Need to Know About the Masai Mara

    One of the most famous reserves in the world, the Masai Mara is connected to the Serengeti and takes its name from the Masai people who call it home. The park is perhaps most famous for the role it plays in the annual Great Wildebeest Migration, which sees millions of wildebeest and zebras make the trip from Tanzania to the Masai Mara between July and October. Also home to large numbers of elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, zebra, gazelle, and wildebeest throughout the year - the park is well-regarded for offering excellent game-viewing conditions year round. Interestingly, the Masai Mara Reserve that many visitors know of is just a small part of the greater Mara ecosystem, with private reserves such as Koiyaki, Lemek, Ol Chorro Oirowua, Okinyei, Siana, Maji Moto, Naikara, Ol Derkesi, Kerinkani, Oloirien, and Kimintet making up the remainder. While it is possible to visit some of these reserves as a guest, the majority of game drives are conducted in the Masai Mara Reserve.
