What are the differences between Tanzanian and Kenyan safaris? We highlight the five biggest differences between the two safari destinations.
Disney's The Lion King has made more and more people curious about Africa. Why not take your own Lion King safari to see the animals in person?
Known for its landscape more than the wildlife it is home to, Hell's Gate National Park is an adventurer's playground boasting excellent hiking and cycling trails as well as the opportunity to really get the adrenaline pumping with abseiling or rock climbing. Once a prehistoric lake, the Hell's Gate National Park is now remarkable for its unique landscape and the diverse wildlife that calls this small park home. Also of note within the park's boundaries is the Olkaria Geothermal Station, the first of its kind in Africa. Hell's Gate Fact File
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.
