Kenya's National Parks
Kenya has many national parks and reserves so these are just a few of them.
Maasai Mara National Reserve
The world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve needs little in the way of introduction. Its tawny, wildlife-stuffed savannahs are familiar to anyone who has watched nature documentaries. Reliable rains and plentiful vegetation underpin this extraordinary ecosystem and the millions of herbivores it supports. Wildebeest, zebras, impalas, elephants, Masai giraffes and several species of gazelle all call the Mara home. This vast concentration of game accounts for high predator numbers, including cheetahs, leopards and the highest lion densities in the world.
The Masai Mara (or the Mara as locals affectionately refer to it) is the northern extension of Tanzania’s equally famous Serengeti Plains and is jointly managed by the Narok County Council. The whole ecosystem is greatly extended by the numerous private and community-owned conservancies and group ranches that surround the reserve.
The Masai Mara National Reserve is administered by the local county council. It is probably the most famous and most visited reserve in Kenya. It offers breathtaking views (seen in the film ‘Out of Africa’, much of which was filmed here) it is the seventh wonder of the world because of millions of Wildebeest that cross the Mara River from Tanzania to Kenya every June and go back in October. It is a natural phenomenon that you can’t see anywhere else in the world.
Mombasa Marine National Park
Mombasa Marine Reserve was formed first, to protect the precious coral heads and their resident marine life from damage by over-fishing and trophy collecting (relics, shells, coral etc). Coral species include branching (acropora), encrusting (turbine…
Mount Kenya National Park
At 5,199m high, Mt. Kenya is East Africa’s second-highest mountain. It offers easy or challenging ascents with superb scenic beauty. To the Kikuyu tribespeople, it is the home of the Supreme Being: Ngai, a name also used by the Maasai and Kamba tribes, meaning God.
Nairobi National Park
Nairobi National Park is a national park in Kenya that was established in 1946 about 7 km (4.3 mi) south of Nairobi. It is fenced on three sides, whereas the open southern boundary allows migrating wildlife to move between the park and the adjacent Kitengela plains. Herbivores gather in the park during the dry season. Nairobi National Park is negatively affected by increasing human and livestock populations, changing land use and poaching of wildlife. Despite its proximity to the city and its relatively small size, it boasts a large and varied wildlife population and is one of Kenya’s most successful rhinoceros sanctuaries
Tsavo East National Park
Tsavo-East is one of Kenya’s oldest and largest National Parks: covering approx. 40 per cent of the total area of all Kenya’s National Parks. Its beautiful landscape and proximity to the coast make it a popular safari destination.
Tsavo West National Park
“Full of wild beasts, such as rhinoceros, buffaloes and elephants” from a missionary’s diary written in 1849. Later in 1900 the notorious “Man Eaters of Tsavo” man-eating lions preyed on the railway linesman building the great Uganda Railway.
Lake Nakuru National Park
This park is said to be a bird watchers paradise. Thousands of pink flamingoes flocking the lake and with the background of the Mountains surrounding it, it makes this park a spectacular place to visit plus it is also home to the white Rhinos. These are some of the pictures our clients took while in this park.
