Get to Know Kenya Southwest

Home to the Masai Mara, Amboseli and the Rift Valley lakes, the area is perfect for anyone on their first Kenyan safari

Kenya’s south-west safari circuit is probably the most visited in the country. From Nairobi, you drop down into the Rift Valley towards the town of Narok. This is the gateway to the Masai Mara, Loita Hills and Nguruman escarpment as well as to the Rift Valley lakes, such as Naivasha and Nakuru west of the Mau escarpment. Directly south of Nairobi is Amboseli National Park, with its elephants and Mount Kilimanjaro.

Kenya’s south and south-western safari circuit should be your first option in Kenya. It can also be combined with Tanzania’s north-west to include the Serengeti National Park and the annual Great Migration.
