7 Days Kenya Safari. Overview of national parks & game reserves you will visit during this 6 nights wildlife holidays safari.
Safari to Masai Mara Game Reserve Kenya.
The first park you will visit during this 7 days Kenya private wildlife safari.
Maasai Mara is globally famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs, game, and the annual migration of zebra, Thomson's gazelle, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti every year from July to October, known as the Great Migration.
This migration is a natural phenomenon determined by the availability of grazing.
The initial phase lasts from approximately January to March, when the calving season begins – a time when there is plenty of rain-ripened grass available for the 260,000 zebra that precede 1.7 million wildebeest and the following hundreds of thousands of other plains game, including around 470,000 gazelles.
Tradionally, the wildebeest migration at the Masai Mara Game Reserve takes place from July to mid August although this can change from year to year.
Masai Mara Game Reserve ranks amongst the world's finest wildlife sanctuary with well over 450 species of animals having been sighted in this marvel of nature.

Safari to Lake Naivasha National Parks
The second park you will visit during this 6 nights private Kenya wildlife safari.
Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in Kenya and is part of the Great Rift Valley.
The name derives from the local Maasai name Nai'posha, meaning "rough water".
There is no visible outlet, but since the lake water is relatively fresh it is assumed to have an underground outflow.
The lake is home to a variety of types of wildlife including over 400 different species of bird and a sizeable population of hippos.
The fish community in the lake has been highly variable over time, influenced by changes in climate, more so global warming.
Joy Adamson, the author of Born Free, lived on the shores of the lake in the mid-1960s.
Safari to Amboseli National Park in Kenya
The third park you will visit during this 6 nights Kenya Wildlife game viewing Kenya safari.
Amboseli offers some of the best opportunities to see wildlife because of its vegetation which is sparse due to the long dry months.
The park is at the core of an 8,000 square kilometres (3,100 sq mi) ecosystem that spreads across the Kenya-Tanzania border.
Amboseli National Park is the second most popular national park in Kenya after Maasai Mara National Reserve and the visit can easily be done in a weekend.
