Kenya Game Reserves

The diversity of Kenya’s people, wildlife and habitats is superbly represented in the country’s many protected areas. While the national parks aim to protect flora, fauna and ecosystems, the Kenya Game Reserves give our guests distinctive wholesome experiences that Kenya offers culturally, historically and ecologically. Some regions of Kenya are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Important Bird Areas and other globally-significant regions. No matter how you envision your dream African safari vacation, Kenya Safari tops your expectations in every possible way.

Some Kenya Game Reserves and game sanctuaries are situated near rivers and offer exciting views of crocodiles and elephants. Another highlight is a visit to the Shimba Hills National Reserve. This is the only place in whole Kenya where you can see the magnificent Sable antelope. Enjoy fascinating wildlife in beautiful surroundings with volcanic hills and grasslands. The birthplace of the safari, Kenya is still considered one of the best places to see Africa’s herds and prides. There are over 40 national parks and reserves in Kenya.

Top Most Kenya Game Reserves:

Masai Mara: Plenty Of Predators & The Wildebeest Migration

The Masai Mara is Kenya’s best-known reserve, and for good reason too. Home to an abundance of big game, the Mara is excellent for predator sightings – cheetah, lion and leopard – with the open grasslands and far-reaching views making these big cats easier to spot. Game viewing reaches its peak in July with the arrival of the thousands-strong wildebeest herds of the annual migration.

Samburu: Dramatic Scenery & Unusual Wildlife

A starkly beautiful reserve, Samburu is a good choice for a classic big game viewing – lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo (no rhino in the reserve) – along with some more unusual sightings. Unique to Kenya’s arid north are the Samburu Special Five: the rare Grevy’s zebra, beisa oryx, long-necked gerenuk, Somali ostrich and the reticulated giraffe with its striking checkered pattern.

Amboseli: Game Viewing Against The Backdrop Of Kilimanjaro

Amboseli is a relatively small park that covers a diverse range of landscapes from dry savannah to delta-type swamps. But the most dramatic scenery of all is the view of snow-capped Kilimanjaro, which (while situated in Tanzania) can clearly be seen towering high over the sun-baked plains.

Meru: The Unspoilt Wilderness Of Elsa The Lioness

Meru is a beautiful, wild and little visited national park. And while the game viewing here is not as good as the Mara you don’t get the safari crowds either. That said, there is plenty of wildlife about, with the reserve being particularly good for rhino sightings as it contains an enormous fenced rhino sanctuary (which is currently being extended). Other big game you’re likely to see include elephant, lion, buffalo and again some of those rare northern species you’d see in the Samburu.

Lake Nakuru: Great Lake Tinged Pink By Flamingos

Lake Nakuru lies an easy drive from Nairobi and is a good starting point for a Kenya safari. While this small national park does not have the same wilderness feel as many of the larger reserves, it is still well worth visiting. Lake Nakuru was established as Kenya’s first rhino sanctuary and along with white rhino you’re likely to spot Rothchild’s giraffe, buffalo, waterbuck and possible even leopard.

Kenya Game Reserves and Kenya National Parks are some of the best safari parks in the world. An essential part of any holiday to Kenya, Kenya Safari is an unforgettable Kenya Travel Guide & experience that you won’t want to miss.

There’s plenty of choice on offer and so much to see and do but don’t forget to also make time to relax on Kenya’s beaches before you leave too. Let our African Experts help you start planning your Kenya Safari Tours today.
