Let’s embark on a journey to explore the best parks in Kenya, where the wild beauty of Africa unfolds.
1. Kenya Package Holidays Destinations #1 – Maasai Mara National Reserve
Maasai Mara, a crown jewel of Kenyan tourism, is a sprawling savannah that hosts the Great Migration. This natural spectacle unfolds as millions of wildebeest and zebras traverse the Mara River. Home to the “Big Five” and the Maasai people, the reserve offers a perfect blend of wildlife encounters and cultural experiences.
The Masai Mara National Reserve isn’t solely about the Great Migration. Abundant wildlife thrives here including the Big Five—lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo and a host of other wildlife. The reserve is also home to the Maasai people, a tribe that has co-existed with wildlife for centuries. Visitors can engage in traditional ceremonies, learn about Maasai life, and witness their vibrant dances.
2. Amboseli National Park
With its breathtaking views of Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli is renowned for its majestic elephants roaming against the backdrop of Africa’s highest peak. The park showcases diverse ecosystems, from wetlands to savannahs, attracting not only iconic wildlife but also bird enthusiasts eager to witness the avian splendour.
The sight of large herds of elephants, wandering across the open plains against the backdrop of the snow-capped mountain is a photographer’s dream. On a game drive, you’ll spot other wildlife like cheetahs, wild dogs, lions, lesser kudu, dik-diks, giraffes, zebras and the elusive leopards. The park is a haven for bird enthusiasts, with over 400 bird species recorded. Flamingos, pelicans, and raptors are among the diverse avian populations.
3. Samburu National Reserve
Nestled in Northern Kenya, Samburu is a unique wilderness where wildlife like the reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra thrive. Samburu’s diverse topography, including riverine forests, rugged hills, and the Ewaso Ng’iro River, provides a picturesque setting for safari adventures.
On a visit to the super remote Samburu National Reserve, you’ll have a chance to spot wildlife and interact with the Samburu people. You’ll gain insights into their nomadic lifestyle and rich culture and witness traditional dances, ceremonies, and unique customs.
4. Tsavo National Park
This is a land characterised by vast landscapes and diverse wildlife. Tsavo, one of the largest national parks in Kenya, is divided into East and West. Tsavo East is characterized by open savannahs and the flowing Galana River, while Tsavo West is marked by volcanic hills and the iconic Mzima Springs.
Both parks boast diverse wildlife, including lions, giraffes, zebras, and a variety of antelope species. Unfortunately, rhinos in the park were hunted to the point of extinction but the remaining few were transitioned to the nearby Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary. Today this sanctuary is a conservation success story.
5. Lake Nakuru National Park
Lake Nakuru, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is famed for its pink shores created by millions of flamingos and scenic views. The park serves as a vital bird-watching destination while the landscapes around Lake Nakuru, including the surrounding hills and acacia woodlands, create a scenic backdrop for safari adventures.
The park hosts a dedicated rhinoceros sanctuary, playing a crucial role in the conservation of both black and white rhinos. Visitors can spot these majestic creatures along with other wildlife including the Rothschild giraffes, buffaloes, and hippos
6. City Life in Nairobi Kenya’s Capital
Kenya’s capital city offers a unique blend of urban vibrancy, rich history, and proximity to natural wonders. The green city in the sun is a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities with its diverse population contributing to a rich tapestry of traditions, languages, and culinary delights.
The Nairobi National Park, located just a short drive from the city centre, is a unique attraction. It allows visitors to experience a safari setting against the backdrop of city skyscrapers. The park is home to a variety of wildlife, including lions, giraffes, and rhinos. Elephants are conspicuously missing from Nairobi National Park but can be seen at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust – still in Nairobi.
Other attractions within Nairobi include the Giraffe Centre, Nairobi National Museum, and Karen Blixen Museum. You can shop at the Maasai Market for traditional crafts, visit modern shopping malls, and dine at the Village Market.
7. Mombasa City
This coastal city, situated along the Indian Ocean, is Kenya’s second-largest city and a vibrant destination that seamlessly blends history, culture, and national beauty. Mombasa is renowned for its pristine beaches with soft white sands and clear blue waters. Diani Beach, Nyali Beach, and Bamburi Beach are popular spots for relaxation, water sports, and enjoying the coastal scenery.
For underwater enthusiasts, Mombasa Marine National Park is a reserve with vibrant coral reefs, diverse marine life, and excellent snorkelling and diving opportunities. Haller Park is an excellent place to see an array of wild animals including giraffes, zebra, waterbucks, turtles, hippos, and our slithery neighbours.
Mombasa has a long and storied history, evident in its architecture and landmarks. The Old Town, with its narrow winding streets and historic buildings, reflects centuries of Swahili, Portuguese, and Arab influence. Fort Jesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, stands as a testament to the city’s strategic importance in the region’s maritime history. The city serves as a gateway to Kenya’s coastal treasures. From here, you can easily access other coastal destinations like Malindi, Watamu, and Lamu, each offering its charm and attractions.

Research each destination’s unique features and the wildlife it hosts. Next, establish a budget that includes flights, preferred safari packages and any additional activities or excursions.
Plan Your Itinerary
Outline your travel dates (once you reach Kenya, we’ll take over your planned safari itinerary) and Kenya visa requirements. Handle health preparations (vaccination) and pack clothing suitable for both warm days and cooler evenings. Comfortable, neutral-coloured clothing is ideal for game drives. Don’t forget essentials like a hat, sunscreen, binoculars, and a camera with extra batteries. You may want to note down the official Kenyan consulate contact information in case of an emergency.
Best Time For Your Visit in Kenya
The best time to visit largely depends on what you want to see and do. For wildlife safaris, the dry season from June to October is ideal. During this time, you can expect:

If you’re a birdwatcher or love lush landscapes, the wet season is the perfect time to visit. From October to December and April to June, the rain rejuvenates the landscape, creating a perfect opportunity for birdwatching and enjoying the lush greenery.
