Kenya Safari Holidays
Kenya is a great place to visit if you are keen on safari holidays. Not only is Kenya home to Africa’s Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo – it also has many varied wildlife reserves. When planning Kenya safari holidays, you could plan your own and self-drive, or you could go to a reputable tour operator such as Safari Village Online.
The Kenya safari holidays on offer include visits to the Maasai Mara, the Aberdare National Park, Samburu National Reserve, Lake Nakuru, Amboseli and Tsavo National Park. The length of the Kenya safari holidays vary from three days to nine days, but tag on a beach safari and visit Kenya’s beautiful coastline to extend your Kenyan experience.
The ultimate Kenya Safari holidays arguably involve a visit to the Maasai Mara National Reserve. This reserve is home to over 450 species of animals and from July to August you can bear witness to the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra from neighbouring Tanzania to Kenya across the crocodile-infested Mara River. You might have seen this is on a big screen, but nothing beats the reality of the stampeding masses in a fight for survival.
While in the reserve you could stay in tented camps or various lodges, both which would bring you closer to nature. Your Kenya safari holidays could even include a sunrise hot air balloon trip which gives you a new vantage point, or a trip to one of the cultural villages. These are home to the Maasai tribesmen, who cut tall and elegant figures. Experiencing another culture enables you to develop a tolerance for and understanding of your fellow man so important in today’s diverse world.
After visiting the Maasai Mara National Reserve, you would do well to visit the Amboseli Reserve. This reserve nestles in the foothills of the snow-capped Kilmanjaro – Africa’s highest mountain which tempts many an intrepid climber to scale its heights. A visit to Amboseli is also a must as it is known for its many ecosystems, affording you fauna and flora delights, so do include this when planning your Kenya safari holidays.
