Masai Mara National Reserve
Kenya’s most famous reserve, sitting along its Southern Border, is actually a continuation of the Serengeti National Reserve in Tanzania. It is one of the activities you have to do if you’re visiting Kenya. A wild variety of wild life is viewable at any time of the year, although between July and November, you will experience the famous wildebeest migration. This happens every year when over 200 million wildebeest migrate from the Serengeti National Park into the Masai Mara National park to look for greener pastures. It is truly a magical experience for all who have the opportunity of witnessing it.
While Mount Kilimanjaro might be Africa’s highest peak, that doesn’t stop Mount Kenya from being equally as breath taking. The hikes are normally a bit shorter than those of Kilimanjaro and you will get a great photo opportunity with a sign marking the equator which runs right through the Mount Kenya National Park.
For those who prefer to be in the water, Mombasa is a great place for scuba diving and other aquatic activities. Enjoy the beaches from the shoreline or venture into the water and experience the world of scuba diving and snorkeling at the Mombasa Marine National Park. Don’t want to get wet but still want to experience the sea life? Try taking one of the glass bottomed boats and view the ocean from above.
