From Chyulu Hills and Amboseli to Tsavo, the wildlife-rich area offers a safari experience to remember
Kenya’s south-eastern parks and reserves are well known and much visited because of how close they are to the Mombasa coast and the capital Nairobi. The main route between Nairobi and Mombasa dissects Tsavo East and West, making it very accessible.
Other south-eastern parks and reserves include Chyulu Hills and Amboseli, which is probably Kenya’s best known national park. This is where elephant strolling past the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro has become an iconic image, captured by many a travel writer or coffee-table book photographer.
The currency that you will be using on a Kenya Safari is the Kenyan shilling.
Pack neutral-coloured clothing to blend into the bush during Game drives
Long-sleeved shirts help to provide sun and mosquito protection
T-shirts and shorts are also great for warmer days
Evenings and cooler days call for jeans or longer pants
A rain-proof jacket is always a good idea to pack along
The Nile Crocodile
Kenya's fantastic safari areas are safe to visit, and the country's kind, welcoming people will make your journey unforgettable. A Rhino safari is no different if you are accompanied by a safari guide in a safari area. There should not be any problems.
The best time to see the wildebeest migration is in August as the herds cross the Nile crocodile-infested Mara River, crossing an international border between Kenya and Tanzania.
The wildebeest migration calving season generally starts in February. During this time, the migratory herds will give birth to newborn calves. Predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah will move into the southern Serengeti to take advantage of the vulnerable calves.
