Where will you go?


The south of Kenya is home to one of Africa's most famous wildlife destinations: the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Often combined with the Serengeti in northern Tanzania, both parks play a role in the annual Great Migration. 

While the Maasai Mara has the most name recognition, there's plenty more to get excited about in Kenya. The Mara conservancies of Naboisho, Mara North, Ol Kinyei, and Olare Motorogi have some of the most impressive wildlife densities in Africa, and oftentimes better viewing opportunities than in the reserve. 

Along the southern border you'll find Amboseli National Park, with Tsavo East and Tsavo West just beyond. 

Keep going and you'll arrive at the frontier between the continent and the ocean, with Diani Beach and Watamu Beach the perfect place to grab a cocktail and enjoy the views.

From tracking the gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, to safaris in Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth National Park - there's no shortage of incredible safari opportunities in Uganda. 

It's not just gorillas that vie for attention, head into the forests of Kibale National Park to find troops of chimpanzees swinging from the trees.
