Masai Mara

The Masai Mara offers an unparalleled African safari experience with its diverse landscapes teeming with wildlife. Known for the highest concentration of big cats, the Mara is a spectacle of vast herds and varied game.

The presence of the Maasai people enriches the experience, blending conservation with cultural insights. Essential for any Kenyan safari itinerary, it's famed for the Great Migration, offering a breathtaking view of this natural wonder.

The Mara not only captivates with its wildlife but also provides a profound understanding of the coexistence between humans and nature.

Mara Conservancies

The Masai Mara is surrounded by 15 wildlife conservancies, vast areas dedicated to community-based conservation initiatives. These efforts protect wildlife and habitats, providing income for the local Maasai community.

Numerous camps in these conservancies contribute directly to the Maasai, who own the land. Rich in wildlife, these areas offer exclusive activities like night drives and game walks, not typically allowed in the main reserve.

With limited beds and restricted public access, these conservancies offer a more private and exclusive safari experience than those within the Masai Mara itself.

Chyulu Hills

Nestled between Tsavo West and Amboseli National Parks, Chyulu Hills National Park offers stunningly diverse landscapes.

Known for its volcanic terrain and exceptional views of Kilimanjaro, this park features ancient volcanic cones, craters, and the world's longest lava tube. Chyulu's captivating scenery is complemented by a rich array of wildlife, including buffalo, antelope, elephants, leopards, wildebeest, and zebras.

Enjoy a range of exhilarating safari activities including horseback safaris, mountain biking, walking safaris, and both day and night game drives.


Tsavo East and Tsavo West, together forming one of Kenya's most biodiverse ecosystems, offer unique safari experiences. Tsavo East is a bird and antelope haven, while Tsavo West features volcanic landscapes and the Mzima Springs, surrounded by forests and the Chyulu Hills.

Known for the distinctive red tuskers, elephants bathed in red dust, and rich populations of hippos, crocodiles, cheetahs, and big cats, the Tsavo National Parks offer spectacular game viewing and scenic beauty.

Visit for walks to Mzima Springs and views of Mount Kilimanjaro on clear days, with Tsavo West often recommended for its distinct features.
