For those who want to see the jewels in Kenya's tourist crown, this short but sweet tour takes in the country's top three national parks.
Amboseli National Park
This classic route will bring you face to face with the continent's most charismatic creatures. Safari njema – have a good trip!
Departing from Nairobi, Kenya's (in)famous rough-and-ready capital city, the first port of call is the world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve. Between July and October, the Mara plays host to the annual wildebeest migration, which offers a definitive slice of safari Africa. Even if you can't time your visit to coincide with this epic event, the Mara is still worth visiting as the most famous national park in Kenya.
From here the trail leads northeast to the Samburu National Reserve, a dusty red desert habitat that shelters several species of animals not found elsewhere in Kenya. The safari trail continues down to Amboseli National Park, which is regarded as one of the best places in Africa to get up close and personal with herds of grazing elephants.
