Widely considered to be Africa's greatest wildlife reserve and the jewel in Africa’s crown, Maasai Mara is home to a spectacular array of wildlife. The open savannah, woodlands and tree-lined rivers create an eco-system that supports huge numbers of bird and mammal species.
Lions are found in abundance throughout the park, as well as Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra, and a variety of Gazelle species. Cheetahs are regularly seen and, with luck, you may also find Rhino and the elusive Leopard.

Samburu offers Kenya’s greatest – and least changed – encounter with wild Africa. It is one of the most interesting places in Kenya, unique for several reasons: This harsh, beautiful wilderness depends on the steady flow of the Uaso Nyiro River for its existence, which brings the Aberdares waters, and those of the crystal clear Buffalo Springs, on the eastern side of this reserve.
The river waters a variety of animal species found only north of the Equator, including the majestic Beisa Oryx, the reticulated giraffe, the thin-striped Grevy’s zebra, and the ‘giraffe-necked’ gerenuk antelope, which stands on its hind legs to feed.
Tsavo is a rugged beautiful wilderness. It has a savannah ecosystem that is made up of open grasslands, scrublands and acacia woodlands. Then there's the marvel of Mzima Springs, replenished with twenty million litres of crystal-clear water a day, from the underground streams of the nearby Chyulu Hills.
The Springs form a haven for wildlife where elephant soak half immersed in the waters, light-footed hippo’s tip-toe across the bottom and crocodiles bask on the banks.
Nairobi, as a capital city, is unique in having a wildlife park on its doorstep. Indeed the city abuts the park on all but the southern perimeter so it is possible to photograph a rhino, browsing peacefully among the whistling thorn with high rise office buildings in the background.
Some of the wildlife is migratory and when there is grazing and water outside the park it moves out into Maasai land through the unfenced southern boundary. But there is also a resident population of plains game and carnivores so a visit at any time of the year is rewarding.
