National Parks and Reserves of Kenya

With a startling 23 national parks and a further 13 private reserves, Kenya has a right to its claim to being the safari capital of the world.

Ranging from the vast savannah plains of the Masai Mara in the south to the rocky landscapes of Hell's Gate and all the way up to Olpajeta at the feet of Mount Kenya, the nation's parks offer a dazzling array of landscapes and safari experiences.

Wildlife of Kenya

Kenya is blessed with an abundance of wildlife ranging from the iconic 'Big 5' mammals to brilliantly coloured bird life, vast herds of migratory herbivores, and everything in between.

Kenya is one of the world’s premier safari spots for a reason, and its wealth of national parks makes it a must visit place for safari enthusiasts old and new.

Of particular interest to wildlife enthusiasts looking for a different experience will be Lake Nakuru, where each year up to a million flamingos gather each year to feed on the algae that gives them their distinct pink colouration. It’s a sight that must be seen to be believed.

The last of the world's northern white rhinoceros population can be found in Kenya's Ol Pejeta Conservancy, while the Samburu Game Reserve has such unique wildlife that it has its own 'Samburu Big Five' that includes such unique creatures as the Somali ostrich, the reticulated giraffe, and the beisa oryx.

Wildebeest Migration

The world famous Great Wildebeest Migration draws people from all over the world to witness the movement of more than a million wildebeest as well as the 400,000 zebra and 200,000 gazelle that accompany them.

Kenya's Masai Mara National Park plays host to this amazing spectacle each year from September until November, with the massive number of herbivores descending upon the park and its surrounding conservancies.

While the most dramatic parts of the Great Wildebeest Migration take place largely in the neighbouring Serengeti, the Masai Mara game viewing experience during the September to November period offers the chance to see a massive number of animals and the predators who follow them everywhere they go.

Mount Kenya

Mount Kenya is not just a single peak, it is a massive monolith consisting of a multitide of spires, cliffs, complex ridges, and peaks.

The weathered remains of an extinct volcano that was last active several million years ago, Mount Kenya is Africa's second highest mountain and the roof of Kenya. Despite straddling the equator, the mountain draws significant snowfall each year and supports a number of impressive glaciers.

Climbing Mount Kenya requires rock climbing for the most part, although some peaks (such as Point Lenana) can be reached without having to climb.

Shadows of Africa specialises in helping climbers reach their goal of summiting Mount Kenya.

Safaris in Kenya

Kenya offers a broad variety of adventures to its visitors. For those wanting to take their first safari, Kenya isn’t called the world’s safari capital for nothing.

The world famous Masai Mara National Park is located a short drive from Nairobi, one of east Africa’s most cosmopolitan and fascinating cities. There are national parks to explore by car or on foot, mountains to climb, and pristine beaches just begging to be explored.

Golf Safaris

With more than forty golf courses, Kenya is a perfect place for golfers year round. The country's perennially sunny weather means almost every day can be perfect for a round, and visitors can alternate between playing the back nine and spending days out on safari in Lake Nakuru, Nairobi, or the Masai Mara National Parks.

Shadows of Africa is happy to act as caddy for your golf safari, organising accommodation, course bookings, and the safaris that come in between.

The Kenya Coast

A glorious ribbon of silver & sapphire, the Kenya Coast is a tropical playground of white sand, brightly coloured coral, and blessedly warm, clear waters just begging to be played in.

A fusion of cultures, most prominently Swahili, makes the coast a uniquely intriguing place of myth, heritage, and magic not found elsewhere on earth. Colonial era buildings, white walled mosques, fleets of dhow, waving palms, and five star resorts all come together in a heady combination that needs to be seen to be believed.

Živali Kenije

Kenijo vsako leto obišče več deset tisoč ljudi iz celega sveta, ki želijo biti priča enemu izmed najbolj spektakularnih dogodkov narave na svetu – Veliki migraciji živali. Več sto tisoč živali prične dolgo potovanje v Serengetiju v Tanzaniji, zaključijo pa ga ravno na prostranih ravnicah Narodnega rezervata Masai Mara v Keniji. V Keniji lahko opazite legendarnih Velikih 5 – slone, nosoroge, leve, leoparde in afriške bivole – kot tudi druge živali kot so žirafe, gepardi in zebre.

Migracija Gnujev

Svetovno znane migracije gnujev vsako leto iz celega sveta privabljajo obiskovalce, ki želijo opazovati spektakel narave, ko se več kot milijon gnujev v spremstvu 400.000 zeber in 200.000 gazel pota na njihovo osupljivo potovanje. Narodni park Masai Mara gosti ta osupljiv dogodek narave vsako leto med septembrom in novembrom . V tem času se v park zgrne tudi izredno veliko število mesojedcev, ki želijo izkoristiti situacijo in si zagotoviti lahek ulov. Medtem, ko se največ dogajanja med migracijami odvija v sosednjem Serengetiju, vam safariji v Masai Mari omogoča, da opazujete premike ogromnega števila živali in plenilcev, ki so jim ves čas tesno za petami.

Gora Kenija

Goro Kenije, druge najvišje gore v Afriki, tvori več nazobčanih in povezanih vrhov, pečin in grebenov. Gora je ostanek umrlega vulkana, ki je bil nazadne aktiven pred več milijoni let. Danes je druga najvišja gora v državi in je poznana tudi kot Streha Kenije. Njeni vrhovi so, kljub ugodni legi na ekvatorju, večino leta prekriti s snegom, prav tako pa lahko na njej najdete večje število ledenikov. Če se želite povzpeti na goro v večini primerov potrebujete tako plezalne izkušnje in znanje, kot tudi ustrezno alpinistično opremo. Kljub temu se lahko na nekatere vrhove, kot je Point Lenana, povzpnete brez plezanja. Naši vodiči so specializirani v odpravah na goro in bodo vsem, ki vas vzpon na goro zanima pomagali, da osvojite želene vrhove.
