Maasai Mara and Southern Kenya

The Maasai Mara is one of the most renowned safari destinations in Africa and for good reason. Its plains are home to huge concentrations of game and every year, from July to October, over two million wildebeest flood the plains providing one of nature’s most extraordinary sights. The camps here are usually tented and traditional in style for an authentic safari experience with a focus on guiding.

The Chyulu Hills form a spectacular, though little known, reserve between the Amboseli and Tsavo National Parks. The terrain is a mixture of rolling foothills and open short-grass plains, and although many of the "big five" can be seen, the wildlife is more interesting than abundant. Lesser kudu, oryx and cheetah are among the more unusual species that can be seen. Tsavo is the largest national park in Kenya at around 21,000 sq km, and Tsavo East consists mainly of vast plains of scrubland, home to huge herds of elephant.
