Safari in Kenya
To me, the ultimate country to go on safari, especially if travelling as a family is Kenya. A safari in Kenya will offer you something that none of its other African counterparts can do – a safari that is half wildlife and half culture. This is so important as whilst the obvious reason that most people travel on safari is to see wild animals – in great abundance preferably – one cannot ignore the vital fact that culture is so much a part of this beautiful and varied country.
The Masai Mara is one of the richest wildlife areas in Africa, with concentrations of game not seen elsewhere outside of the Serengeti/Masai Mara ecosystem. Especially at the time of the wildebeest migration. Meru is another amazing park which offers great diversity yet again of different wildlife. Then you have camel safaris, horse riding safaris, walking safaris – quad biking, cycling – going out with lion researchers and elephant researchers, to sleeping in tree houses. The options are endless!
Add to this Lake Turkana which can be seen by helicopter or the Lakes where one can go fly fishing, or even the coast which is now enjoying the tourism that it always used to and should deserve and one has the ultimate and perfect safari!
