Masai Mara National Reserve

The Masai Mara National Reserve, which sprawls across more than 1500 square kilometres of the country’s southwest. The park protects a phenomenal array of game, including charismatic species such as elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo, as well as crocodile and hippopotamus in the Mara River. The birdlife is no less impressive, with over 450 resident bird species. However, the true highlight here is the Great Migration, recognised as one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. To survive the dry months of July to September, some 1.7 million wildebeest, migrate from the parched plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. andBeyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp is our preferred lodge.

Mount Kenya

Rising up from the heart of the Kenyan landscape, the snow-capped Mount Kenya is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is Africa’s second highest mountain reaching an impressive 5199 metres in height. Visitors can explore its surrounding forests, trout-filled streams and game reserve; or for the more adventurous, summit the peak. While Mount Kilimanjaro is an easier climb, Mount Kenya is more of a challenge as it has a higher technical difficulty, however, Point Lenana can be easily reached by a fit hiker. Visitors can look forward to a variety of wonderful activities such as: cave exploration, mountain climbing, camping, and game viewing.

The Rift Valley

The Rift Valley is a colossal geological feature stretching for 6000 kilometres. It runs from the Middle East all the way down Africa to northern Botswana into Kenya and can be visited just a short drive north of Nairobi. The ground drops away and opens up to a massive valley which is home to lakes, soda lakes, savannah and impressive volcanic formations. This spectacularly scenic landscape is scattered with abundant plains game, a string of reserves and Maasai villages. Visitors can soak up these stunning panoramas against beautiful backdrops. Some highlights include: the dramatic cliffs of Hell’s Gate, Mount Longonot, Lake Elmenteita, and the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park.

Kakamega Forest

Kakamega Forest National Reserve makes up part of Kenya’s last surviving tract of tropical rainforest – a 45-square kilometre area of virgin stinkwood and teak trees, ferns and flowering plants. These ancient woodlands shelter a rich diversity of fauna, including tree pangolins, duikers, porcupines, seven different primate species and a profusion of butterfly species. It is also a superb bird watching destination, with over 300 avian species recorded – at least nine of them found nowhere else on earth.
