Kenya National Parks and Game Reserves

Tsavo National Park

Tsavo National Park

The twin National Parks of Tsavo East and West together form one of Africa’s largest wilderness reserves. This single National Park is larger than the island of Jamaica. Tsavo as a whole consists of 10 million acres of pure wilderness, incorporating savannah, ranges and hills, acacia and montane forest, and an extensive river system. 

Masai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara Game Reserve is widely considered to be Africa’s greatest wildlife reserve. The Masai Mara Mara comprises 200 sq miles of open plains, woodlands and riverine forest. Contiguous with the plains of the Serengeti, the Mara is home to a breath taking array of life. The vast grassland plains are scattered with herds of Zebra, Giraffe, Gazelle, and Topi.

Shimba Hills National Reserve

Shimba Hills National Reserve

Shimba Hills National Reserve is located 50Km away from Mombasa city and only a few kilometers from Diani Beach. The Reserve consists of extensively hilly landscape of 320 square kilometers. This park, the Shimba Hills National Reserve, is highly recommendable for day safari trips from the beach hotels along the coast.  From heights of up to 450 meters you can enjoy fantastic views over both the Shimba Hills, which Ernest Hemingway described as “The Green Hills of Africa" as well as to the Indian Ocean.

Samburu National Reserve

Samburu National Reserve

The Ewaso Nyiro river flows through three great northern reserves, Samburu, Buffalo Springs and Shaba. The waters of this great river draw wildlife in great numbers to its banks, creating an oasis of green. The verdant riverine forest is a stark contrast to the arid thorn studded plains. Samburu is visited by large herds of Elephants, drawn by the promise of water. In the dry season, the elephants use their tusks to dig deep into the dry river beds, unearthing precious water. These waterholes then become a focal point for other game.

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli is a land of giants. This is a place of wide dry plains, where the horizons stretch into the furthest distance and become one with the sky. 

Amboseli is renowned for its elephant populations and large herds, including some impressively tusked bulls are drawn to a series of large, lush swamplands. But the most impressive giant of all is Mt Kilimanjaro. Africa’s largest mountain lies just over the border in Tanzania, but the most impressive views of its snow-capped peak are to be found in Amboseli. The early light of dawn turns the mountain a dark hue of purple, and its snows into an ethereal pink. The sight of Kilimanjaro high above herds of elephant crossing the plains of Amboseli is a timeless African image.
