An exciting safari and adventure to three of the best National parks in Kenya.
Samburu National Reserve is a rugged and semi-desert park located in Samburu district in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. The reserve derives its name from the Samburu people of Kenya who have lived in the area for many years. The Samburu tribe are known for their remote culture, pastoral and nomadic way of life. Lake Nakuru has best been known for its thousands, sometimes millions of flamingos nesting along the shores and rich wildlife including Rothschild giraffes and black rhinos. Masai Mara national reserve is world famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs, and the annual migration of zebra, Thomson's gazelle, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti every year from July to October, known as the Great Migration. You will easily view the big cats and the big five in this game reserve. Maasai Mara is also home to many members of the colorful Maasai tribe.
