National Parks

 

Here you will find descriptions of the various National Parks in Kenya. Every park has its own character. From vast steppes to mountains and deep green gorges. Kenya offers a beautiful and varied nature that leaves nothing to be desired.

Tsavo East

The Tsavo East National Park inspires because of the very high population of animals. It is known for its red laterite earth, which gives the elephants their typical name "Red-Elephants". It borders directly to the Tsavo West National Park. In Tsavo East you can watch almost all animals. Herds of elephants, zebras, giraffes and antelopes. Here you will also find the maneless lions, which can only be seen in this park.

Tsavo West

Tsavo West borders Tanzania. From all the lodges in this park you have a great view on Kilimanjaro. One of the most varied national parks with a high chance to discover the "Big Five". A special highlight is the Mzima Springs. Out of these springs 20 million litres of water bubble every minute. You will also be able to admire many very large crocodiles and hippos. In Tsavo West you also pass a rhino sanctuary and enjoy the wonderful scenery.

 

Amboseli

Amboseli National Park is located on the border to Tanzania. It impresses with its diverse nature and a wonderful view on Kilimanjaro which is covered with snow at the summit. Well equipped lodges and many observable animal hikes make your safari an unforgettable experience.

Masai Mara

The Masai Mara is famous for the largest animal abundance of all parks in Kenya and borders directly to the Serengeti in Tanzania. Here's your best chance to see the Big Five. Many cats of prey, including cheetahs, leopards, lions, herd animals such as zebras, wildebeests and antelopes, bird species, including the largest, the ostrich, can be admired here. Hyenas, vultures, crown cranes and many others have their home here in the Masai Mara. During the seven-day tour you will also hike through the park with the nomadic Masais living here. You can visit this park when you book a six-day safari or when we plan and organise a safari tailored to your needs.

Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha is located at 2000 meters altitude. Here you will marvel at countless bird species, e.g. eagles, cranes, pelicans and many others. Zebras, giraffes, waterbucks and hippos also have their home here. When travelling to the adjacent Hells Gate National Park or Lake Nakuru, you will be overwhelmed by the beautiful and varied landscape. Steep rock towers, deep gorges, embedded in dense green vegetation, will amaze you. Three other small National Parks border Lake Naivasha National Park.
