The Masai Mara is the most important and known national reserve in the country and home to the annual Great Migration of almost 2 million wildebeests and zebras, its sweeping savannahs are home to all animals, symbol of African wildlife such as lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffalos, elephants, wildebeests, zebras and many species of antelopes and birds.
But the Masai Mara is also the land of the Maasai, an iconic population living in the tradition, wrapped in their red blankets wearing several beaded jewelry; with the unmistakable gait of a proud warrior population, they are easily identifiable in the endless African savannah.
The Amboseli National Park is a nature reserve that offers the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the early morning and sunset are the best time of the day to observe the silent giant when the mist disappears.
Another interesting park is the Samburu National Reserve, here you can make photo safaris in search of animal species that are unlikely to be spotted elsewhere: the Grevy's zebra, the fringed ears oryx, the Somali ostrich, the giraffe gazelle and the reticulated giraffe.
At the extreme NorthWest of the country lies the Turkana Lake, a turquoise jewel set in an extremely arid area, where mass tourism has not yet come, because of the long travelling times to reach it, but the goal certainly is worth the trip; here many remains of hominids were found by Richard Leakey and his team.
But Kenya is not only safari, the coast has long beaches of white sand and Malindi, Watamu and Diani Beach are very popular resorts.
