The best known game park in Kenya is, the Maasai Mara Game Reserve – a seventh wonder of the world and the subject of many wildlife documentaries and movies, with its wide open rolling savannah and majestic big cats.

The Annual Great Wildebeest Migration is the largest mass movement of land mammals on earth, over one million stampeding wildebeest, zebras  and other grazing herbivores journey the 300 miles from the Serengeti in Tanzania to Kenya’s Maasai Mara Game Reserve. A rough pattern occurs each year as the herds follow the rains to secure a good water supply and fertile grass.

But there is far more to Kenya than the Great Migration and the Mara, with just as much on offer for experienced wildlife enthusiasts as first-time safari goers and every visit is a new experience with new found memories. Venture to the giants of Tsavo East and Tsavo West for wonderfully varied landscapes.
