Kenya National Park and Game Reserves

There are 54 Kenya National Parks and Reserves, with many sanctuaries and private conservancies all over the country. The private conservancies and sanctuaries work closely together with the Kenya Wildlife Services, K.W.S - the organization responsible for the management of the National Reserves and protection of wildlife in Kenya.

Aberdares National Park

Aberdares National Park is famous as the place Queen Elizabeth learned of her accession to the throne at Treetops Lodge. The Aberdares are an isolated volcanic range that forms the eastern wall of the Rift Valley and the third highest mountain range in Kenya.

The scenery in this region is spectacular and impressive as is the range of wildlife. Due to the dense forest vegetation, you will need to do some searching for the wildlife, but there are also many purposes built game viewing lodges. Game to be found in the park includes; elephant, lion, black rhino, waterbuck, gazelle, giant forest hog, genet cats, leopard, buffalo and the rare spiral-horned antelope known as the bongo.

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park, although small, at approx 395 sq km, is one of Kenya's most popular parks. The views of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, coupled with the variety of game to be found, draws the visitors in. The park which lies approximately 140kms south of Nairobi on the border with Tanzania, is most famed for its' large herds of elephants. A combination of drought, increased tourism, and over-grazing has had a hard-hitting effect on the western side of the park, the land has become dry, dusty and barren and the animals that were once there have moved into areas of shrub forest and marshland.

Lake Nakuru National Park

Lake Nakuru National Parke lies 6km from Nakuru town and the main attraction is Lake Nakuru, a shallow alkaline soda lake set beneath the high cliffs of the eastern Rift Valley.

Lake Nakuru is world famous for the 1.5 million-strong population of Lesser Flamingo and smaller number of greater Flamingo, which frost its blue shores sugar pink. It also plays host to over 400 species of bird life, being the second most prolific ornithological site in Kenya. Lake Nakuru is a very shallow, strongly alkaline lake that occupies about a third of the park.

Lake Nakuru National Park is also a sanctuary for Rothschild giraffes and black rhinos.

Masai Mara Game Reserve

The Masai Mara is the most popular game reserve in Kenya, and borders the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The landscaped is mostly open Savannah grasslands and acacia shrubland.

Masai Mara Game Reserve is home to 95 species of mammals, amphibians and reptiles and over 400 birds species recorded on the reserve. The Masai Mara National reserve hosts the annual wildebeests and zebra migration involving over 1.5 million animals. The migration begins between July and October. During this time of the year you will see a large number of lion, hippo, crocodile and vultures all of which prey on the weak and young migrating animals.

Other game to be found in the Masai Mara at any time of the year include; elephants, cheetahs, baboons, gazelles, giraffes, jackals, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, water buffalo, ostriches, and a large variety of antelope and birdlife.

Mount Kenya National Park

Mount Kenya National Park is located amidst amazing surroundings of Mt Kenya with breathtaking scenery and a rich biodiversity. Mount Kenya National Park was declared a Biosphere Reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 because of its variety of habitats ranging from higher forest, bamboo, alpine moorlands, glaciers, tarns and glacial morains.

The birdlife around the mountain is also prolific including huge eagles, giant kingfisher, red-fronted parrots and multicolored sunbirds.

Nairobi National Park

Nairobi National Park is only 20 minutes drive from the city and is ideal if you only have a stopover in the city and want to experience some of Africa's game. Because of it's location, there are many visitors, both tourists and residents but you are guaranteed to see an abundance of game, seemingly unaware and unafraid of humans. The elephant is the only one of the 'big five' not found here, but leopard, lion, buffalo, rhino, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, antelope, wildebeest, eland, zebra and Thompson's gazelle as well as many other species are here in abundance.

At the western end of the park is an Animal Orphanage, dedicated to young animals who are injured or deserted in the wild. Here they are studied and cared for until they can be returned to the reserve.

Samburu , Shaba and Buffalo Springs National Reserves

The Samburu and Buffalo Springs National Reserves lie northeast of Nairobi halfway to Lake Turkana and cover an area of approximately 300 sq kms. The complex formed by Samburu, Buffalo Springs and Shaba reserves is one of the most interesting places in Kenya.

Samburu and Buffalo Springs are adjacent reserves, separated solely by the Ewaso Nyiro river. Shaba, the less visited of the three, is also the largest, with a total extension of 239 km≤. Samburu and Buffalo Springs are similar in surface, 165 km≤ the first and 128 km≤ the second.

Large concentration of game occur in Samburu, Shaba and Buffalo Springs National Reserve including some species not found elsewhere; such as the oryx,, gerenuk, Reticulated giraffe and Grevy's Zebra. Other game includes ostriches, elephants and leopards who are lured into the lodges with bait, so the tourists can get a glimpse.

Tsavo East National Park

Tsavo East National Park is one of Kenya's oldest and largest parks, but huge areas, mainly to the north of the Galana River, are completely closed to the public. The southern accessible area of the park includes the Kanderi Swamp and the Aruba Dam on the Voi river and has large concentrations of game including hippo, giant crocodiles lion, leopard, waterbuck, kudu, zebra and ostrich. It is also home to the largest herds of elephant in Kenya, usually covered in red dust. The park provides for excellent photography with it's spectacular views such as Mudanda Rock and Yatta Plateau.

Tsavo West National Park

Tsavo West National Park is located approx 230kms from Nairobi off the main Mombasa-Nairobi road and has three rivers flowing through it; the Galana, the Athi and the Tsavo attracting large concentrations of game including buffalo, rhino, giraffe, zebra, lion, leopard, cheetah crocodile and many varieties of antelope.

In the northwestern corner of the park is Shetani Lava Flow, a massive lava bed created by an eruption in the Chyulu Hills where the raw cone at the centre can still be seen. Rain falling in these hills is purified as it soaks through the porous volcanic ash , running underground for 50km, resurfacing at the lush Mzimba Springs, which is one of the parks main attractions. This is haven to crocodiles and hippo and a waterhole for a large variety of other game.
