Bryson Heroes Kenya Safari Map

Masai Mara National Reserve

It could just be the greatest wildlife show on earth. Every year from mid-June to October, the rich grasslands of Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve, in the country's south-west, draw wildebeest, zebra and other iconic herbivores of the African plains in their millions. Their battle for survival with Africa's great predators brings intense daily drama as lions stalk through the grass, cheetahs accelerate across the savannah and crocodiles lurk in the shallows waiting for wildebeest to venture into the water.

Amboseli National Park

Africa's highest mountain, Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m), may rise from the soil of Tanzania, but the best views of this soulful mountain are from Amboseli National Park across the border in Kenya. The elephants of Amboseli include among their ranks some of Africa's largest tuskers, and nowhere else on the continent can you draw quite so near to the largest land animal on earth. Put the two together - the elephant set against the backdrop of a snow-capped Kilimanjaro - and you have perhaps the signature image of the African safari.

Tsavo National Parks

The largest of Kenya's protected areas, Tsavo West and Tsavo East national parks are excellent wilderness areas, epic landscapes that shelter the major species of safari lore. This is one of the few places on earth where you can see the "Big Five" (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino) in a single day. And whether you encounter the descendants of Tsavo's famous man-eating lions, elephant families bathed in Tsavo's red soils, or the highly endangered rhinos that survived the poaching of decades past, a safari here is rich in depth and historical resonance.

Lake Nakuru National Park

In the heart of Kenya's Rift Valley, this compact and intensely beautiful park surrounds a saltwater lake beloved by immense flocks of pink flamingos and pearl-white pelicans. Rhinos, both black and white, share the park with prides of lounging lions, marauding troops of baboons, shy black-and-white colobus monkeys, endangered Rothschild giraffes, and elusive leopards that are the epitome of feline stealth. With waterfalls, sheer cliffs and dense stands of greenery, Lake Nakuru is one of Kenya's more diverse and accessible safari experiences.

Aberdare National Park

The counterpoint to the vast congregations of wildlife in southern Kenya, Aberdare National Park is where the landscape of dense rainforest and Alpine moorlands seems to triumph over its wild inhabitants. That is, of course, until an elephant crashes out of the undergrowth just metres from your vehicle, and you spy bongo antelopes and black leopards lurking in the forest shadows. The wildlife is here in abundance, but you just have to look a little harder - which allows you to capture the true questing spirit of the safari.

Meru National Park

In the shadows of Mt Kenya, Africa's second-highest mountain and one of the Rift Valley's shapelier peaks, Meru National Park counts among Kenya's least-visited parks. This is all the more surprising given its landscapes (Hemingway-esque green hills, riverine forests, baobab and palm trees) and wildlife (including lions descended from those of Joy Adamson's Born Free fame). But use this knowledge to your advantage: unlike in most Kenyan parks, at Meru there's a good chance you'll be the only visitors present while lions snarl over a freshly killed impala.
