Watch out for Swindlers, no psychosis, just caution! There are a lot of swindles at the moment. How might you be swindled? Never purchase « cheap » or « good price » safaris from « beach boys » etc..
Concerning Internet direct local contacts you have to choose the results of the search engines and not the discussion forums! Is it more reassuring to choose your local contact with a search engine like: Google, Yahoo, Bing, Qwant, Ecosia, Duck Duck Go etc. The results of the search engines are very reliable… read more
Kenya parks and reserves kenya safaris.
Kenya Masaï Mara.
As a photographer, I personally love the Masaï Mara but also national parks such as Samburu, Nakuru, Tsavo or Amboseli are of interest due to their specific characteristics.
Here you can see what I don’t like in the national parks !!
You can see that especially with Masaï Mara during school holidays. The bad drivers look for the cars instead of the animals. It is much easier !! Here is a map of the location of the national parks and reserves in Kenya
Kenya parks reservations begin with Lake Nakuru
This small park of 194 km² is located 160 km north-west of Nairobi
near Nakuru, the 4th largest city in Kenya. It’s a little one
Reserve, but here you will find an extraordinarily large variety of
Birds, such as kingfishers, spoonbills, herons, storks and also rose
Flamingos in front. In this park I have the most beautiful photos
made by herons and leopards.
Amboseli National Park right
in front of Kilimanjaro beautiful !
The Amboseli National Park, 3260 km² in size, is one of the most beautiful parks
Amboseli with Mount Kilimanjaro in the background (to be able to see it
you have to get up early because it is mostly during the day, but also
covered by numerous clouds in the evening). You can see lots of animals
watch (zebras, wildebeests, giraffes, cheetahs, lions …) He is lying
about 200 km south of Nairobi and consists of a wide
plains covered by acacias, savannah and swamps.
Here Ernest Hemingway wrote his book « Snow
Mount Kilimanjaro « and Joseph Kessel » The Lion « .
The Aberdare National Park, 385 km²
is 150 km north of Nairobi.
The Aberdare National Park, 385 km² in size, is 150 km north of Nairobi
and due to its mild and humid climate it is very dense
Vegetation on. The Aberdare National Park is a wooded massif
which forms the eastern boundary of the great Rift Valley. The highest
The peaks of this massif are at 4000 m and the reserve extends
over 1000 km². The park is home to numerous mammals:
Mountain elephants, rhinos, water bushbucks, Thomas kobs
Buffalo, lions, leopards. It’s also one of the few places to go
where you can watch the wonderful Colobus monkeys.
The park is quite inaccessible, but offers
wonderful landscapes !!
The Masai Mara National Reserve and the great
Wildebeest and zebra migration.
Circuit of the great wildebeest migration Kenya Tanzania.
The Masai Mara reserve (1510 km²), whose name comes from the den
Park flowing through the Mara River and those living in the region
Masais is certainly the most famous reserve in Kenya.
It is one of the nature parks where you can see the « big five » (lions
Elephants, rhinos, buffaloes, leopards). In this
Park which is the natural extension of the Serengeti in Tanzania
represents, there are more than 500 different bird species.
Mount Longonot Park.
Hikers are sure to have fun with this boy
Volcano of 2776 m height, which is about 10 km south
from Naivasha located to climb.
Marsabit national Park.
The Marsabit Reserve of 2000 km² is located in the far north
on the Ethiopian border, about 400 km from Nairobi, very many
Animals that are difficult to observe.
The Bogoria National Reserve in Kenya.
The Bogoria lake, 107 km² in size, is due to its colonies of rose
Flamingos very well known and is located 200 km north-west of Nairobi.
For many visitors it is with its green water and the
Geysers the most beautiful lake in Kenya.
Nairobi National Park.
I pet a cheetah in Nairobi Park in Nairobi National Park
A pleasant little park of 114 km², only a few minutes
from downtown Nairobi !! There are many different
Animal species there, with the exception of elephants.
Meru National Park.
One of the most beautiful, but after the poaching of the 80s on
fewest visited nature parks. You will find a large number here
of different landscapes, from the jungle to the desert !!
The park is located approx. 200 km north-east of Nairobi.
Mount Kenya National Park.
Mount Kenya is 165 km north of Nairobi and is 584 km² in size.
At 5,199 m it is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second highest in Africa.
Wonderful landscapes with many hiking and climbing opportunities
The Samburu and Buffalo Springs Reserves.
Samburu and Buffalo Springs (approx. 385 km²) are 325 km north
from Nairobi. To get there from Nairobi you have to be in
near the town of Nanyuki the apparent line of the equator
cross. Samburu is a less visited, semi-arid one
Area in which dry bush vegetation predominates.
It’s one of the rare areas to be in
Reticulated giraffes, Grévy zebras and giraffe necks
The Shaba National Reserve.
A little further east of Samburu is the little, little
visited Shaba reserve, but definitely a visit
is worth. Well worth it when visiting Samburu and Buffalo
Springs to take a little detour.
The Shimba Hills National Reserve.
A small reserve that is on the coast of the Indian Ocean
is located between Mombassa and the border with Tanzania, the same
behind the beaches of Tiwi and Diani. Watching
Animals is difficult, however.
Tsavo East national park
There are wonderful areas and lots of wild animals!
The Tsavo National Park is divided into East and West Tsavo and is one
the largest nature park in the world, if not with its 20,812 km²
is the biggest ever. Part of the supply of drinking water from
Mombassa is from Tsavo. Tsavo is a volcanic area, and man
occasionally crosses lava flows. There are significant ones there
Elephant herds, as well as an observation point for crocodiles
and hippos (Mzima Spring in West Tsavo).
Kenya parks and Reserves
Tsavo West national park.
(I love this park because of its beautiful landscapes and its animals)
West and East Tsavo complement each other wonderfully and
are due to their landscapes, but also their animals
a must-see destination !!
Pretty close about a 3 hour drive away
are the reserves that I personally like best !!
You are across from Tanzania and I can take photos there
shooting that I’ve dreamed of all my life !!
Animals with Kilimanjaro in the background, that’s superb !!
Do you actually know that you can climb Kilimanjaro to his
Can climb the summit? When you have a little practice
it goes up to an altitude of 5895m within 4 days !! One of my
Freund is 72 and has climbed to the top. I myself
I have heart disease, but survived 5600 m in good shape
and I want to climb it with my wife in 2004 !!
You also need to know that in the areas of
West Tsavo and Taïta Hills the ground of red
Laterite is made up of elephants, zebras and
all other animals that are on the
Rolling ground are red !!
There aren’t as many animals as you might think !!
Not only in Tsavo, but also in all other reserves
Kenya and also because animals also have their own
Habits and territories. It’s like with mushrooms:
when you know someone who knows the best places you will be.
You can find some too !! As for the coastal region in southern Kenya
near Mombassa, I can offer you (40 km
further south) for your stay and if you see wildlife
want to see one of my good contacts:
it’s Fred (a french guy who has an agency in Diani)
He knows his way around there because he is already alive
there for many years !!
