Kenya is the home to lovely and quite exquisite holiday destinations. Among its top showcasing features include its vast population of wildlife in their natural settings. There are many places of interest that you can include in a holiday package tour to this country, and below are five of the most visited attractions in Kenya that you will definitely find exhilarating.


1. The Maasai Mara

The Maasai Mara is one of the world’s magnificent game reserves. A worldly known park, it is named after the statuesque pastoralists of the area who are a community that live and graze their animals in harmony with the wildlife. Their trademark red cloaks make them hard to miss, and so is their unique culture and hypnotizing songs and dances.

The Mara boasts of a myriad of wild animals with the world’s best predator action sightings, owing to its large populations of the big cats. The Park borders Tanzania and forms the extension of the world famous Serengeti. It is also home to the Great Migration which is quite the spectacle when thousands of wildebeests and other animals migrating from the Serengeti cross the dreaded Mara River.

2. Amboseli


Amboseli is a National Reserve that lies near the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The name means Salty dust’ and comes from the Maasai in a term they had for trying to describe the parched conditions in the park. It is in this reserve that you can get a taste of five different habitats that really show how adverse natural conditions exist together. You will find in there, the dried up bed of a lake, wetlands oozing sulfur springs, dense woodlands and an expansive savanna. Also If you want to have an up-close view of large herds of elephants, then this is where to go.

3. Samburu

The Samburu Reserve is located on the banks of river Ewaso Ngi’iro. The river actually acts as the border between this reserve and the Buffalo Springs National Reserve. So you will definitely get a double treat when you decide to add Samburu as a destination in your holiday package to Kenya.

The Samburu reserve is packed with rich history that includes the story of conservationists George and Joy Adamson and their famous lioness Elsa. If you have also heard about the lioness that was fond of adopting Oryx calves, then this is where she lived.

4. Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha is the haven for bird lovers and campers. Over 400 different species of birds can been seen here. A variety of wild animals also roam around the lake and they include hippos, zebras, giraffes, buffalos and the furtive colobus monkeys. The lake is located within the Great Rift Valley and lies in its highest point. It is also home to a variety of top hotels and world class holiday homes.

5. Tsavo

The Tsavo is also another most visited attraction in Kenya and is actually the country’s largest park. The park has been divided into two; the Tsavo East and the Tsavo West Park. The two parks provide exciting geographical features such as dazzling waterfalls, big rivers, volcanic hills, an expansive savannah and a large lava rock plateau. Wildlife here can be hard to see owing to the park’s dense vegetation, but highlights such as the Mzima Springs and Chaimu Crater more than makes up for that.
