Masai Mara is known for one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. It witnesses the greatest wildebeest migration. In search of water and food, two million blue wildebeest migrate 3,000 km from Serengati, Tanzania to Masai Mara in Kenya. They do a continuous clock wise journey and during one round journey of 6,000 km, more than 10% of the two million wildebeests perish. The great migration occurs between the months of June and September. It is a scene to watch from air as well as from land. Besides this, Masai Mara is home to 'Big Five', which are lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros and elephant. The reserve also has unique range of small animals and birds too. Tourists can also enjoy hot air balloon flights, cultural programs, game drives, game viewing and guided nature walks too.
Around 200 km from Nairobi, Amboseli is a popular and busy park. Tourists come here for game viewing around its wetland areas. It is also home of 'Big Five' and an exotic range of 300 species of birds. Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain of Africa and a dormant volcano, in Tanzania can be best viewed from Amboseli National Park. The best time to view the mountain is at dawn or sunset.
22,000 square kilometers of Tsavo National Park is Kenya's largest national park. It is divided in two parts - Tsavo East and Tsavo West. Although Masai Mara is more popular, yet Tsavo gives better safari experience as it is wilder and have fewer tourists than Masai Mara. Tsavo is just a couple of hours' drive from the sea. Thus, it gives a unique advantage of the sea beach experience along with African safari. Besides being home to 'Big Five', Tsavo also boasts of hippos, species of antelopes and an exotic range of birds.
The lake is heaven for the bird watchers. Rhinos and hippos come to the lake. The lake is also home of more than 400 species of birds. Millions of flamingo's live and come to the lake too.
