Family Adventure Trips to Kenya

Kenyan safaris are world famous and offer you some of the best views of wild games. But problem is that unlike Tanzanian reserves, they don’t lie within a popular trail and are scattered. To plan an itinerary you need to properly chalk it out; selecting upon the places and things you want to visit and your travel partner.

The Wildebeest Migration in Western Kenya

Western Kenyan safari begins from its capital city of Nairobi. Those who’re wildlife enthusiasts are no strangers with ‘Masai Mara National Reserve’ which is one of the best bets of Africa’s game viewing spots. If Kenya is your next destination then try to plan it out from July to November as this is the period of a spectacular phenomenon called the annual migration. Herds of zebras, gazelles and wildebeests in hundreds move in a clockwise direction to find fresh grazing and drinking resources.
