Kenyan Wildlife

There are amazing opportunities for seeing wildlife in Kenya. The east African country that covers around 580,000 square kilometers of real estate and which is synonymous with the ‘safari’, boasts some of the finest natural parks and wildlife conservancies on the continent and the potential is good for seeing many species of wildlife including the famed ‘big five’. On a recent trip I was able to visit four of the main ones.

From the foothills of the Mount Kenya National Park with exceptional views of Mount Kenya, the highest mountain in the country to the Ol Pejeta conservancy, which lies on the Laikipia plains and has one of the highest wildlife to area ratios of any of the parks.

Then through to the Lake Nakuru National Park nestled in the 6,000 km long Great Rift Valley which is the largest geographical feature on earth and on to what is probably the most famous of them all, the Massai Mara National Reserve in Narok county.

From the outset there was plenty to see and photograph and despite breaking my longer lens and camera on a particularly rough track after it bounced onto the floor of the vehicle I was travelling in I was able to see not only the ‘big five’ but so much more of what this great country has to offer…
