Kenya is one of Africa’s leading tourism destinations. It is one of the best safari destinations in the country; Kenya is a favorite for big game safaris, beach vacations, mountaineering, and cultural tours.

Kenya is a land of many contrasts ranging from varied traditions to the culture of the people, the superb beaches along the coastal area, the equatorial glaciers of Mt Kenya at an altitude of more than 4,573 meters, to the natural habitat inhabited by different types of animals big and small, herbivorous and carnivores.

All this combines to make a small world of Kenya with natural features of its own. Actually, for many travelers, Kenya means wildlife. More than a million wildebeests and zebras cross southern Kenya during the great migration that normally takes place between July and October and they attract predators in big numbers. In the soda lakes are the herds of flamingoes.

If you have ever dreamt about sleeping in the bush surrounded by wildlife while in Africa, then Kenya is for you. Kenya is one of the top safari destinations in Africa with unmatched wildlife. Kenya’s flora and fauna are notably so diverse. The vast plains of the south are characterized by distinctive acacia trees.

The savannah grassland of the Masai mara supports a huge variety of animals and insects. All the big five -Lions, elephants, buffaloes, leopards, and Rhinos can be seen in at least two of the major parks plus a huge variety of other impressive animals.

Kenya has something for everybody. The palm-fringed, tropical, white sandy Beaches are one of the key attractions for many who come. Total relaxation is offered for those who want it, and for those who want more action; excitement and adventure are easy to find in a whole variety of forms: deep sea fishing, water skiing, scuba diving, white water rafting, mountaineering, off-road driving, snake safaris, and skydiving! You name it; Kenya offers fantastic opportunities for adventure and excitement.

Safaris and wildlife: Being home to Walt Disney's “Lion King”, it would be a shame not to spend at least a few days going on a safari here. There are so many game parks throughout this beautiful country; with each one having its own unique landscape, flora, and fauna.

Seeing the big 5 is an attraction for many visitors, which means; lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes, and rhinos. In addition to the big 5, you’ll be sure to see an incredible variety of wildlife roaming freely through the open savannah.

There are too many animals to mention here, but you’ll be sure to see many species of gazelles and antelopes, zebras, and different types of wild cats including cheetahs, mongooses, monkeys, bat-eared foxes, warthogs, hyenas, hippos, crocodiles, crested cranes and the extraordinary sight of lakes, literally pink with huge numbers of flamingoes.

Wildebeest migration: One of the most amazing wildlife spectacles in the world is the annual wildebeest migration which happens in the Masai Mara game reserve. Literally, millions of these ungainly creatures attempt to cross the Mara River and escape the snapping jaws of hungry crocodiles. The sight and sound of this incredible event are ones that will last with you for a lifetime.

Kenya Safari Tours Climate
Kenya Safari Tours Climate, Kenyan climate by location, from mostly cool every day, to always warm/hot.

At the coast, it is generally tropical with rainfall and temperatures being higher throughout the year. The coastal cities, Mombasa, Lamu, and Malindi, therefore have the air changing from cool to hot, almost every day.

However further inside Kenya, the climate becomes arider. An arid climate is nearly devoid of rainfall, and temperature swings widely according to the general time of the day/night.
The elevation is the major factor in temperature levels, at night, heavy clothes or blankets are needed, in the highlands, when the temperature drops to about 10–12 °C every night. On the high mountains, such as Mount Kenya and Mount Elgon shared with Uganda, the weather is generally cold throughout the year.

Although Kenya is centered at the Equator, it shares seasons mostly with the southern hemisphere except for the arid north and the tropical coastal area. The warmest summer months are December–March and the coolest winter months are June–August with slight variations of 4 °C, but there are differences in temperature varying with different locations within the country.

Kenya People & Culture Safari Tours
Kenya has approximately 43 million people with Nairobi as its capital, which has a population of 2.7m.  The country has at least 40 different ethnic African groups (including the Kikuyu, Luhya, Kalenjin, Luo, Kamba, Somali, Kisii, Meru & Embu, Mijikenda, Turkana, and Maasai) who speak a variety of mother tongues.

The different languages in Kenya fall into three categories – Bantu (Niger-Congo) languages, the Nilo-Saharan group of languages spoken among another third of the population, and the Cushitic language, an Afro-Asian tongue spoken in the north.

Added to this mixture, Kenya is also home to large populations of Europeans, Arabs, Indians, and Pakistanis, many of whom came to the country in the 19th century.

Many Kenyan communities have also adopted westernized or Islamic forms of dress, with their original tribal clothes, jewelry, body ornamentation, and weaponry kept for special occasions or celebrations. Communities in the arid and inaccessible north have held unto their traditional culture and way of life compared to the rest.

Kenya’s tourism Safari Tours
The main tourist attractions are safaris through its 19 national parks and game reserves.
Other attractions include the renowned scenery of the Great Rift Valley, golf courses, tea and coffee plantations, views of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and the white sand beaches along the Indian ocean especially in Mombasa, Malindi, and Lamu with a variety of water sports and aquatic wildlife.

Eco-tourism, conference tourism, cultural and community tourism especially the famous Maasai people, and sports tourism build the rich tourism experience in Kenya. 
This is evidenced by tourism in Kenya being the second leading source of foreign exchange after agriculture.

It’s probably the most unique national park in Kenya and in the entire world. Where else can you spot lions, rhinos, buffalo, and giraffes just minutes from a national capital city? Only 7 km (4 mi) from the heart of downtown, Nairobi National Park is a wonder of wildlife in a grassland setting but framed by the skyscrapers of bustling Nairobi in the background.
It’s Kenya’s first national park and so accessible that you can take a 1 or even ½ day trip there, see more wildlife than most places in the world, and be back in town for dinner (or to see more of Nairobi’s attractions).

Wildlife of Nairobi National Park | What to see In Nairobi National Park | Attractions and Activities In Nairobi National Park.
Within view of airliners coming in on their final approach, it is possible to spot 4 of Africa’s “Big Five”, plus cheetah, leopard, gazelle, hyena, impala, zebra, and ostrich all in the wild.

Birdlife in the Nairobi National park is plentiful – especially in the wetlands with over 400 species amidst pods of hippos.

The park also features the highest density of black rhinos in Kenya as it functions as a rhino sanctuary. In fact, the park has been nicknamed “Kifaru Ark” – kifaru is Kiswahili for rhinoceros.

It is not unusual to see the locals enjoying their nearby park, and it’s a regular stop for Nairobi schoolchildren on class trips.

You too can easily partake in the numerous hiking trails, picnic spots, and even campsites in this unusual refuge so close to the city.

And there are some very special reserves within the park that you won’t want to miss. At the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, baby elephants and rhino calves are rescued and cared for. Feeding times here are always an exciting and joyful event for man and baby animals alike.

Here too, in this refuge just minutes from a world capital, you can witness the annual wildebeest and zebra migration – an astonishing juxtaposition of modern man and the eternal rhythms of nature.

A One-Day Nairobi National Park Tour Just Minutes from your city hotel and Nairobi Airport

Starting from/returning to Nairobi city area hotels /Nairobi Airport.

We’ll pick you up for the short journey to the Nairobi National park. Your short wildlife safari is in the comfort of a private pop-top 4×4 Jeep.

Arriving in Nairobi National Park, you’ll quickly see how unique this special reserve is. Within sight of the city’s skyline, you can spot lions, rhinos, giraffes, buffalo, cheetahs, hyenas, zebras, and much more.

But even though downtown Nairobi is within sight just a few miles away, this is no city zoo or theme park you’re visiting.

This reserve is the real thing – the animals aren’t in cages or behind fences. They are here in the wild, by the thousands. In fact, the annual East Africa migration of wildebeest and zebra moves over the wide-open grassy plains, past acacia bush, and through this most unlikely national park.

Just 10km south of Kenya's capital city of Nairobi, the park is Kenya’s oldest (1946) and one of its smallest, but sightings of lions and hyenas are regular. Spending your important holiday time here with Natural World Kenya Safaris, you’ll have opportunities to see endangered rhinos, hippos, ostrich, and 400 species of birds.

Home To The Kifaru Ark
Kifaru is Kiswahili for rhinoceros and the park supports the largest population of endangered black rhinos in Kenya. Appropriately, the park has earned the nickname Kifaru Ark. As the population of rhinos here continues to grow, the park has become a source of the endangered species, supplying them to other parks around the country.

Nairobi National Park Boasts Many Walking Trails
Unlike many other national parks, the setting here features many walking trails from which to choose. There is a guided walking trail to the hippo pool to view these immense creatures and possibly crocodiles as well.

As we follow these trails and wildlife tracks on our safari, we’ll be looking to spot white and black rhinos, leopards, lions, cheetahs, buffalo, and more.

Another special site we’ll visit is the Ivory Burning Monument. Here at this historic spot tons of ivory seized from poachers have been publicly burned to protest the ivory trade and as a commitment to protect the country’s elephants.

Masai Mara National Reserve is situated in the southwest of Kenya, covering an area of 1,510 square km (583 square miles), the Masai Mara National Reserve is a land of breathtaking vistas, abundant wildlife, and endless plains.

The quintessential Masai Mara National Reserve safari delivers many attractions, as the reserve is home to an excellent year-round concentration of game, including the more than two million wildebeest, zebras, and other antelopes that make up the famous Great Migration.
The Masai Mara National Reserve is a photographer’s and naturalist’s paradise, with abundant elephants, buffalo, giraffes, lions, and cheetahs alongside the migratory wildebeest and zebra. Leopards are frequently encountered, endangered black rhinos hide in the dense thickets, and large rafts of hippos and enormous crocodiles are found in the Mara River. The Masai Mara National Reserve is also home to over 450 bird species.

The Masai Mara is renowned for its abundance and variety of larger plains species as well as the variety of predator species.  It is considered the only place left in Kenya which resembles the wildlife population today from what it once was.  Although there is an abundance, the wildlife is declining and thankfully the preserve is there to protect it.  It is one of Africa's most coveted wildlife-viewing destinations.

Popular wildlife that might be seen in the Masai Mara include hippo, giraffe, waterbuck, reedbuck, roan antelope, warthog, eland, topi, gazelle, zebra, baboon, crocodile, various species of monkeys, and black rhino.  Except for the mountain gorilla, all of Africa’s Big 7 can be part of your wildlife sightings.  The Mara is home to the largest collection of lions in Kenya.

Predator species are almost always atop travelers' wildlife viewing wishlists.  The good news is that Mara has them.  Lion, leopard, cheetah, jackal, hyena, and various species of mongoose are all found throughout the park.

The Masai Mara is a portion of the larger Mara Ecosystem which combines the Koiyaki, Lemek, Ol Chorro Oirowua, Olkinyei, Siana, Maji Moto, Naikara, Ol Derkesi, Kerinkani, Oloirien, and Kimintet protective ranches.  All of these efforts work together recognizing the significance of protecting the wilderness and wildlife that live in the region.

Although the plains and wooded areas are beautiful, the wildlife is the reason travelers visit Masai Mara.  Most people target the months between July and October with hopes of experiencing the wildebeest migration through the park.

There are plenty of opportunities for historical and cultural experiences as well.  You can visit Masai villages and cultural centers which will all expose you to the culture of the Masai people.  You might become better at jumping if you pay close attention.

WELCOME TO MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE
Masai Mara National Reserve is located in southwest Kenya and is a vast scenic expanse of gently rolling African savannah plains measuring 1510 square kilometers in area and bordering the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the south. Masai Mara is a unique wildlife conservation haven, famous for its spectacular natural diversity of wildlife and is a premier Kenya Safari location in East Africa, offering visitors numerous reasons to visit this animal paradise. Large numbers of Lions, Cheetah, Elephant, Rhino, African Buffalo, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Zebras, and many more animals are found in the park in their natural habitat, unconfined and free to roam the vast wilderness stretching for miles on end.

It is no surprise then that tourists from the world over travel here to experience a Masai Mara Safari tour, more so as the reserve has been voted one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Regarding the origin of the name, the word 'Masai' comes from the Maasai tribe, nomadic inhabitants of the area and the word 'Mara' is their word for 'spotted', referring to the ubiquitous flat-topped acacia trees, shrubs, and bushes that dot the landscape across most of the reserve.

Masai Mara now also comprises a number of conservancies and group ranches bordering the main reserve and is home to some of the most diverse species of African wildlife and is also the site of the annual Wildebeest migration, simply called the 'Great Migration'. Masai Mara National Park is famous for this migration, when large herds of a million plus wildebeest, zebra, and other animals including the Big Cats migrate north into the Mara from Serengeti National Park. The migration typically takes place between July to mid-September and involves the wildebeest making dangerous crossings through crocodile-infested rivers.

The 'Mara', as Masai Mara is also known, is among the best wildlife reserves not just in Kenya but also in Africa, and the aim of this website Ultimate Wild Safaris to offer comprehensive information to guide visitors and tourists in planning their visit or for booking a Safari in Masai Mara, suited to their preference. Travelers are expected to have numerous questions while planning their visit, everything from which is the best month to visit, to which is the better reserve, Serengeti or Masai Mara, or even information on how to book a trip to this magnificent reserve. We aim to answer most if not all your questions through this platform.

In case you require any information, guidance, or suggestions regarding a visit or to plan a Kenya Safari to Masai Mara, Africa's premium Game Reserve, do get in touch with us via email. We are also available on Chat or on Skype.

THINGS TO DO IN MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE | MASAI MARA PEOPLE AND WILDLIFE SAFARI TOURS
There are several exciting activities one can enjoy in Masai Mara. The most thrilling of these has to be the Hot Air Balloon safari, taken at the break of dawn and ending with a leisurely 'Champagne Bush Breakfast'. This is a truly unique adventure activity and the Mara provides the perfect backdrop for the amazing balloon excursion. The flight lasts for about an hour as you glide gracefully over the African savannah watching the magnificent wildlife below. The pilots are highly experienced and the activity boasts of an exceptional safety record. Another popular experience is visiting a traditional tribal Maasai village which allows visitors a fascinating insight into the unique way of life of the famous Maasai, a nomadic warrior tribe found in Kenya and parts of East Africa. There are also nature walks, bush meals, and sundowners as some of the other popular things to do in Masai Mara as a tourist visiting this reserve.

The reserve has a magnificent collection of wildlife and it is quite possible to spot not just the 'Big Five' as often mentioned widely, but also in fact the 'Big Nine', including the Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Giraffe, Zebra, Cheetah and Hippo. It is quite possible that due to the nature and richness of flora and fauna in the national park, one can see all of the above animals not just in a single 2-3 hour game drive, but also with a little more luck, within an hour of your drive in the reserve. The section above lists photos and brief information on some of the amazing wildlife and animals that you will find in Masai Mara including a list of Birds commonly seen here.

WELCOME TO THE LAKE NAIVASHA AREA
Deep blue lakes, rich acacia forests, extinct volcanoes, waterfalls, imposing towers, and bottomless gorges – you’ll be amazed at the variety and drama of the parks, lakes, and preserves surrounding Lake Naivasha.

Here the birdlife is full, varied, and constant as is the parade of wildlife with over 100 species of hunters and grazers.

As befitting such a variety of landforms, you’ll find more types of safaris here than anywhere else on earth…each one allowing you to enjoy a different aspect of the wildlife! Take a water safari to get close to the birdlife, then hike, bike, or even horseback ride past zebra, giraffe, and antelope. The possibilities, like the wildlife, are endless.

The Lake Naivasha Area is a constant gift of surprise, color, and nature’s bounty. You’ll find plenty for everyone here.

The parks, preserves, lakes, and attractions described below are all a short drive from each other.

About Lake Naivasha Park
This high-altitude, freshwater lake with its sterling blue waters hosts hippo and much other aquatic life. You can take a water safari and enjoy the rich birdlife of cormorants and pelicans while zebra and antelope graze nearby on the shore.

The area is characterized by plentiful acacia trees and flower farms awash with roses and carnations.

The lake also serves as a life-giving watering hole for buffalo, eland, impala, and waterbuck so be ready for lots of active game viewing. And it’s not impossible to come upon a leopard during a game drive.

The most famous personality of the area was Joy Adamson, naturalist, and author of “Born Free”, who lived here on the lake’s shores. Her experiences raising the lion cub, Elsa, became an international bestseller and award-winning movie.

Things to do in Lake Naivasha
From Lake Naivasha, it’s an easy drive or you can even walk to other activities.

1. Horseback Riding Safari At Lake Naivasha
What better way to view and get up close to the wildlife than to be astride an animal yourself! In the Naivasha area at Sanctuary Farm, you can take the most unique type of safari – a guided day tour on horseback.
The land here is heavy with acacia trees and you’ll traverse this rich forest coming upon giraffes, wildebeest, impala, zebra, gazelle, dik-dik, and buffalo.

Your horse is familiar with this territory and the animals so it will let you ride up close to the wildlife. And since you are astride the horse, you are in a sense “camouflaged” – appearing to be as one with your ride. You can’t experience the wildlife any closer than this.

Whether you’re a novice or an advanced rider, your horseback safari will be tailored to your experience level. What an unforgettable way to enjoy the wildlife of Naivasha!

2. Crescent Island Game Sanctuary At Lake Naivasha
From Sanctuary Farm you can walk across a nearby causeway to this privately-owned game sanctuary. Crescent Island is a small gem of a park and not overly visited as some others are.
You can take an easy stroll and picnic alongside the rich birdlife and gently grazing wildlife. Or, enjoy a guided walking safari observing pelicans and cormorants along the shore.
You’ll also find buffalo, zebra, giraffe, impala, gazelle, and many others. In fact, there are more animals per acre here than in any other Kenyan Park.

The area is not fenced, so the animals are free to move between the sanctuary and the mainland as groups of buffalo are inclined to do.

For a perfect finish to your day, go to the top of the hill here with its 360o views including Lake Naivasha and Hell’s Gate Park. As the gold of sunset approaches washing over the grazing animals, you’ll treasure a perfect Africa moment.

3. Hell’s Gate National Park At Lake Naivasha
Also, a quick jaunt away is the dramatic cliffs, canyons, and unearthly steam vents of Hell’s Gate National Park. You’ll find many opportunities for hiking and even bicycling past the impala, eland, gazelle, baboon, and buffalo inhabiting the park.

Great columns of steam billow up from the springs and geysers here, and you can take a dip in Africa’s largest natural mineral pool.

Very large predators are quite rare, so the park is safe and family-friendly with its many guided trails. You’ll have opportunities to view the rare bearded vulture and Verreaux’s eagle up close.

And if climbing is your thing, the volcanic cones of Fisher’s and Central tower are fun and accessible climbs.

Finally, at Hell’s Gate Gorge view the rock formation that was the inspiration behind ‘Pride Rock’ from the movie, “The Lion King”. Learn more about Hell’s Gate National Park.

4. Crater Lake Game Sanctuary At Lake Naivasha
True to its name, Crater Lake is a small but stunning jade-colored volcanic lake. From this center, the sanctuary extends with many hiking trails including one along the crater rim.

There are easily over 20 scenic vistas along this impressive crater walk. From this vantage point, you can take in the 150 species of birds of the sanctuary and larger species like giraffe, zebra and elusive leopard, and aardvark.

The park is adorned with small groves of acacia trees adding to the magical feeling here.

The lake conjures up an almost mystical respect amongst the local Maasai people who believe its waters help heal their ailing cattle.

5. Mount Longonot National Park At Lake Naivasha
Ever climb a volcano? Here you can enjoy fabulous views along the way. Mount Longonot (2776 m /9107 ft.) is an extinct volcano that last erupted in the 1860s. Mt. Longonot National Park was created to protect the volcano and its environs. The word ‘Longonot’ comes from the Maasai name Olo Nongot which means ‘Mountain of Many Summits.’

You can hike to the crater rim on a 3.1 km (1.9 mi) trail that starts at the park entrance. It should take about 2 hours. Should you desire to hike around the crater there is a 7.2 km (4.5 m) loop that is a bit challenging.

At the crater’s rim, you’ll be rewarded with views of the 3 km (1.8 m) wide crater and a forest covering the crater floor. There is still some geothermal activity occurring on this volcano that formed 400,000 years ago. Look for small steam vents along the walls of the crater.

This volcano and forest are home to zebra, giraffe, gazelle, buffalo, and hartebeest. And occasionally a leopard has been spotted.

Looking beyond the crater affords wonderful views of the Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha.

6. Lake Nakuru National Park At Lake Naivasha
Close to Lake Naivasha is one of Kenya’s most colorful reserves – Lake Nakuru National Park. Bright pink flamingoes abound here, sometimes in the millions, while endangered rhinos wallow amongst the birds, presenting a pictorial paradise.

As if to compete for the best spectacle, the land shows itself off with immense rocky escarpments, dense acacia forests, wooded hills, and unexpected waterfalls.

You’ll find other birdlife here with an abundance of pelicans, cormorants, kingfishers, ostrich, and storks as well as herons and eagles.

The endangered and rare Rothschild’s giraffe is protected in the park and you’ll also be on the watch for lion, leopard, cheetah, and the entertaining baboon, vervet, and colobus monkeys.

Be sure to visit the park’s several viewpoints where you’ll be greeted with vistas of the Rift Valley. Lion Hill, Out of Africa Lookout and Baboon Cliff are favorites. We have created a page dedicated to this park, make sure to find out more about Lake Nakuru.

This 10 Days 9 Nights Kenya Culture Tribal Tour and wildlife safari at Samburu national reserve offers an opportunity to tour the isolated northern Kenya that is combined with authentic Kenya culture and wildlife.

Kenya is best known for its incredible national parks and rich fauna, regarded as East Africa’s tourism hotspot, and you’d be forgiven for thinking there’s nothing left to discover here. Step away from the better-known sites though and Kenya opens up to a wealth of ethnic diversity and traditional tribal groups, very different from the contrived Maasai experiences that one might encounter on a typical safari.

Towards the remote and austere northern borders, through forbidding deserts and isolated oases, with amazing tribes like the Samburu tribe tour in the Samburu national reserve tour, Gambra tribe in the Chalbi desert, Rendile tribe tour, ElMolo tribe tour, and Turkana tribe tour at lake Turkana, a world away from the luxury lodges and bright lights of Nairobi, both in geography and culture.

On this 10 Days 9 Nights Kenya Culture Tribal Tour and wildlife safari at Samburu national reserve, you are going to explore an area that is known as the ‘cradle of mankind, home to some of the humans’ earliest origins, and traveling here is like stepping back in time – little has changed here for generations.

This is a wild and untamed land; home to warriors, herders, and nomads, and traveling here is a journey you’re unlikely to forget.

Kenya is renowned for its wealth of wildlife, the sweeping plains of the Maasai Mara, and its white-sand beaches. But look beyond these stereotypes, glorious though they are, and one can find a diverse kaleidoscope of ethnicities and tribal groups, far removed from the tourist trail and virtually unchanged for generations.

On this expedition we head north from the capital into the tribal heartlands that stretch towards the borders with South Sudan and Ethiopia, taking challenging routes and driving through remote areas to meet some of Africa’s most traditional groups.

In the harsh lands of the Kaisut Desert, we meet the Samburu and Rendille people, pastoralists who compensate for their austere surroundings with stunning body decorations and enormous beaded necklaces. Pushing further north we drive the ‘Jade Sea’, the vast waters of Lake Turkana – one of East Africa’s most remote regions.

Here we meet the Turkana people, proud warrior people who held out against colonial domination until the 1950s, and who still retain fierce independence from the central government.

Pushing on into the Chalbi Desert we head for the oasis of Kalacha, a center for the Gabbra people, camel herding nomads who eke an existence from this unforgiving land. This is a trip through some of East Africa’s most isolated regions – you can expect some full days of driving on rough and non-existent roads to reach these communities, and at times it may be challenging for some that need a high degree of flexibility and calmness.

The rewards however are great – to meet proud warriors and nomadic communities following in the steps of their ancestors, with little influence from the modern world, masters of their own lands yet welcoming to visitors.

This is Kenya with a twist, and unlike you have seen it before and this 10 Days 9 Nights Kenya Culture Tribal Tour and wildlife safari at Samburu national reserve will take you to over 6 tribes in northern Kenya like the Gabbra tribe, Turkana tribe, Samburu tribe, Rendille tribe, and El Molo tribe “If you’re a fan of tribal expect the best.”
with our selection of Safari Lodges and Camps, you are guaranteed nothing but just the best safari accommodations. Providing a cool and relaxing environment, our selections ensure nothing but peace of mind and a welcoming ambiance to relax.
