CAMPING SAFARI OPTIONS KENYA

One of the finest wildlife sanctuaries in Kenya, is the Maasai Mara which flows into the Serengeti, home to migrant birds, about 57 different species of birds of prey and wildlife in abundance. On arrival, one is immediately struck by the large herds of elephant, shuffling about almost the grasslands. Due to the prolific amount of game, it is not surprising that lion, cheetah and leopard find an ongoing source of food here. Within the Mara river, hippo wallow.

However, by far the most spectacular sight in the Maasai Mara, is the massive migration of animals to new grazing pastures each year. Between July and August each year, literally millions of wildebeest, head in their droves from the Serengeti in search of fresh grasslands further north towards the Maasai Mara in Kenya.

Overview of the National Parks
Lake Baringo is the most northerly of the Rift Valley Lakes. The lake is fed by several rivers, El Molo, Perkerra and Ol Arabel, and has no obvious outlet; the waters are assumed to seep through lake sediments into the faulted volcanic bedrock. It is one of the two freshwater lakes in the Rift Valley in Kenya, the other being Lake Naivasha
Lake Naivasha is almost 13kms across, but its waters are shallow with an average depth of five metres. Lake Naivasha supports a diverse water-bird community. It provides a diverse habitat for a variety of mammals and fish such as tilapia, black bass, and Crayfish. Among the birds that can be spotted here are Cormorants, Warblers, Black Herons, Grey-backed Fiscal, and the Fish Eagle.

Lake Nakuru has become world famous for one particular reason. Thousands of flamingo, joined into a massive flock, fringe the shores of this soda lake to feed on algae that forms on the lake bed. Nakuru does, however have more to offer. It is also a sanctuary for Black and White Rhino  and is also home to huge herds of waterbuck, zebra, buffalo, the endangered Rothschild Giraffe and more. 

This park is famous for its massive cliffs and hot springs and is home to a variety of bird and wildlife. Unlike Kenya's other National Parks, walking and biking is permitted here which is why our biking tours go into this park.
