What is a Kenya Safari?

A safari tour in Kenya is a type of tour or trip that involves going on a guided tour of the wildlife and natural beauty of Kenya, a country in East Africa. Safaris in Kenya often involve staying in tents or lodges and traveling by vehicle to different areas of the country to see various animals in their natural habitats. Some popular destinations for Kenya safaris include the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Amboseli National Park, and the Samburu National Reserve.

The Wildlife in Kenya Safari

Kenya is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including many mammals, birds, and reptiles. The Game reserves in Kenya are home to the famous big five in Africa. These are Lions, Rhinoceroses, Leopards, Buffalos, and Elephants. You might also see Giraffes, Hippopotamuses, Crocodiles, Cheetas, Zebras, etc. The great wild beast migration occurs in Kenya from July to October from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masaai Mara in Kenya. It is considered to be one of the great wonders of the world.

How long is a Kenya safari?

The length of a safari in Kenya can vary depending on your interests and how much time you have available. Some people choose to go on a short safari that lasts just a few days, while others prefer to spend a week or more exploring the country.

It is possible to see a lot of the country’s wildlife and visit several different areas in just a few days, but if you have more time, you may be able to visit a wider range of destinations and do more activities. For instance, an eight-day safari will include tours in the Masaai Mara, Amboseli, Lake Nakuru national park, and Samburu national park. While a 3-day tour will only allow you to visit one or two game reserves.
