Imagine yourself on vacation in Kenya, hiking among the beautiful landscape and watching wild animals as you track big game up close. Or crawling through the grassy savanna at night, hoping to catch the sight of a sleeping leopard. Safari in Kenya is an unforgettable experience for any traveler. It is one of the best-kept secrets in Africa and one that can’t be beat anywhere else on Earth.
Safari in Kenya is best done in the dry season between December and April. This is the time of year when many parks have their annual migration, from the Kenya safari in Shimba Hills National Reserve to Nairobi’s Ol Jelozi National Park. At both parks, the animals congregate around the water in early June to prepare for their long journey home. It is here that you can find the biggest variety and highest concentration of big cats. This is also the time that many tourists start booking their safari tours to Kenya.
Safari in Kenya can be the perfect opportunity to see the big five (lions, elephants, leopards, buffalo and rhinos), but giraffes, hippos and hyenas can also be seen in their natural habitat. While many visitors head out to Kenya specifically to see these big animals, it is possible to see them all throughout the year. There are many areas in central and western Africa, where you can see all the big five animals. You can start your safari in Mombasa or Nairobi and move out to Masai Mara later in the year. There is no shortage of big five reserves in Kenya; they are spread out across the country in such a way that one wouldn’t even recognize them by the name.
The main reason people travel on safari tours is to see the variety of scenery that is available across the landscape. The big five animals are very well known and have their own national parks which allow you to see them up close and personal. Safari in Kenya offers you different opportunities to see the animals depending on whether you plan your safari tour on rough terrain, mountain or desert terrain. If you decide to visit Kenya on a rough terrain safari then you will come across stunning scenery including bushlands, grasslands and tented camps that offer a true taste of nature.
On a more luxurious safari, you will find yourself dining like a king on the finer African foods. The cuisine of Kenya is diverse and very exciting. Some of the finest dishes are made from beef, wild game and fish. If you are planning on visiting the country during the peak season, you are advised to visit in the autumn, from October to March, during the dry season. You will find exquisite spices and foods when you go on an African safari, however, the best time to eat here is from early morning until evening.
Obviously, it’s important to know that going on safari can be dangerous. You should never attempt to take a safari tour by yourself or wander off from your group. Whilst you might think the reason for this is to protect you from wild animals, there’s actually a bigger danger out there – humans. Humans are the biggest threat you can come across on safari, with illegal hunters stopping at nothing to kill their trophy. If you get in the way of them, you could be injured or even killed.
