The open savannahs, expansive plains, deserts, forests, lakes, meadows, caves, and river deltas of Kenya are home to Africa's famous Big Five: lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, and buffalos. There are also numerous and varied species of birds, such as ostrich, vultures, and flamingos. Seeing the wildlife of Kenya on safari is one of the best ways to experience the natural behaviour of the species of Africa.
Between July and October thousands of wildebeests migrate to Kenya from Tanzania on the sun-drenched plains of the Serengeti. The wildebeest migration takes place in Masai Mara and is called the greatest wildlife show on earth. This unforgettable sight is certainly worth a few days of your safari in Kenya.
