Where is the best place to go on safari in Kenya?
Kenya as a country is a tourist???s paradise endowed with numerous parks, reserves and culture that together form the base for exploration while on a Kenyan Safari. To begin with, the Masai Mara is one of the best in this region. All the Big Five are residents here. And the sheer volume of wildlife sweeping across the Mara plains is a sight one cannot afford to miss. Amboseli, on the southern circuit is commonly referred to as the home of elephants and seeing large herds is very common here. Also, coming close to the local Masai culture and being welcomed into their homestead is a very popular experience here as the elders take you through their customs. This park also gives one a perfect chance to see the snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro in the backdrop on a clear sky without having to cross over to Tanzania. Samburu Game Reserve is another place to be visited. Samburu is unique in that it hosts some of the unique game and flora that are only available in the northern part of the country and can only be seen here as well as the enchanting Samburu culture. To the south, Tsavo East and West National Parks are the biggest of them all with a combined area of 21,000 km2 that are host to a larger population of wildlife with some very interesting features like the Mudanda rock and Yatta Plateau that stretches about 6000 km across the horizon.
