Whichever way imaginable, Africa often stands out as the ideal location for a Safari. But then, where exactly should you go to quench your Safari thirst?
Well, the answer is Kenya. The East Africa located country should be top of the list for various reasons. Here are a few;
Kenya is where Safari began
Kenya is where it all began many years. The term “Safari” was coined in Kenya. Overtime, Kenya has become home of the classical safari experience globally. With the weigh and high expectations, the country has improved and even set industry-wide standards in the tourism industry.
The Masai Mara Game Reserve remains the most prolific area for big cat viewing and arguably the best game viewing overall. Seasonally the already top wildlife viewing is augmented by a portion of the great migration (Guinness world record) pouring into Kenya.
Diverse Culture & Activities
Kenya is diverse, with vibrant culture and a wide range of safari related activities imaginable. Quality trekking, biking, horseback riding, and cultural experiences are all available.
The creation of Community Conservancies has uplifted the quality of Safaris on offer in Kenya. The Conservancies bordering the Masai Mara often have even better game viewing than being in the reserve and they have a restricted number of camps with rights to use the Conservancy areas ensuring a non-crowded experience. This allows for quality with off-road driving, night drives, and walking at many camps.
Laikipia in Central Kenya, has become an outstanding place for game viewing of rare species like African wild dogs and Grevy’s zebra, as well as offering great adventure with diverse activities which is outstanding for active travelers who want more variety.
Globally, security is on its all time low. Kenya hasnt been excluded from this worlwide problem having been the target of terrorist attacks from the Somalia based Al-Shabaab.
However, no attacks have been recorded in any of the important safari corridors. Security has also been heightened in the other regions of the country. City hotels now being accorded airport like security.
