Kenya is a top wildlife destination and perfect for those on their first safari. All of the Big Five are regularly seen on safari. The Masai Mara offers spectacular big cat encounters, white rhino and the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe are easily seen at Lake Nakuru, the Rift Valley lakes attract thousands of brightly colored flamingos. Kenya is also host to one of the greatest wildlife spectacles of Africa, the Great Migration. Due to its location on the equator, the country is also home to very large flower farms close to Lake Naivasha, which paint beautiful canvases driving through the countryside. Palm-lined beaches along the Indian Ocean offer a perfect place to relax and rejuvenate after an action packed safari.
