If you’re visiting Kenya with safari in mind, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Amboseli National Park sits at the Tanzanian border against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro – here you can explore savannahs, woodlands, and wetlands and spot the Big Five. The Tsavo National Park boasts similar credentials but is spread over a far larger area, while the Maasai Mara National Reserve is the most famous safari location in the country. It's here that you can observe the astonishing natural spectacle of the annual wildebeest migration. A key feature of Kenya’s landscape is the Great Rift Valley, which houses eight of the country’s lakes, including Nakuru, a key area for wildlife and spectacular natural scenery. Nakuru is an alkaline lake where algae thrive - this in turn entices a vast population of flamingos. Surrounding the lake is a national park where you can observe black and white rhinos, giraffes, and big cats. In the capital, Nairobi, you can experience the urban side of Kenya . The city is home to its own National Park, where giraffes and lions tread the grass plains against the backdrop of glittering skyscrapers. Nairobi’s laidback twin, Mombasa, is found on the southern coast and combines beachside charm with vibrant hustle and bustle.
