1. Watch the Great Migration 7th Wonder of The World

The Great Migration can be seen between July and October in Kenya. The Great Migration happens when the plains game, of which the majority are wildebeest head north through the Serengeti in Tanzania and into the Maasai Mara on their hunt for green, fresh pastures. You may have seen iconic photos of thousands of wildebeest crossing the Mara River, however, they are accompanied by zebra, grants gazelle, Thompsons gazelle, eland and impala. Although we can give a rough indication of the best time to experience this spectacle, it is driven by rainfall so varies from year to year.

2. Safari in the Maasai Mara

Home to the previously mentioned Great Migration, the iconic Maasai Mara is a must for any Kenya itinerary. You could easily make this your only stop and go away with incredible game viewing experiences in stunning accommodation.
Covering over 1,500 square km the Masai Mara National Park has some of the most abundant wildlife in Africa and is a mecca for wildlife photographers, naturalists and animal lovers. What makes the Maasai Mara special is not just the diversity of wildlife such as lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, elephant, buffalo, hippo, lion, giraffe but it is also the abundance and density of these animals.

3. Sunrise safari hot air balloon

Without a doubt, floating over the Masai Mara National Park is one of those once in a lifetime experiences, which if you have the chance you should make sure snap it up.
The majority of balloon trips start inside the Park. For anyone who has not been in a hot air balloon before, your adrenaline will start pumping as you rise early in the morning when its still dark and see the roaring burners lighting up the balloon as it begins to rise. Once everyone is settled into the balloon the pilot will slowly lift off. Other than the odd blast from the burners to keep the balloons height, you will drift silently over the plains watching the sunrise in a truly magical experience and one that is especially popular to include in a Kenya honeymoon.

If you think it couldn’t get any better, the experience is finished off with a champagne breakfast right in the middle of the plains.

4. BREAKFAST WITH GIRAFFES

Whilst not technically a safari activity as it takes place in Nairobi at the famous Giraffe Manor, it is on many safari goers bucket lists so we have included here. Giraffe Manor is home to a resident herd of Rothschild giraffe who are known to put their heads in through the windows to be fed at breakfast, or perhaps even from your bedroom. The experience of eating your pancakes whilst feeding a giraffe its breakfast is completely unique and one that delights adults and children alike!
Due to its popularity, Giraffe Manor needs to be booked 18-24 months in advance!

5. Meet the Maasai Tribes

Originating in South Sudan the Masai migrated along the Nile Valley into Kenya and Tanzania in the 15th Century. Traditionally semi-nomadic, today their lives are more static residing in small settlements. You will struggle not to come across the Maasai people on your safari, their incredible knowledge of the bush makes them brilliant guides and trackers given their history growing up in the bush.
The Maasai culture has become an attraction to Kenya as much as the wildlife and there are a number of ways to interact with the people and visit their villages during your holiday (organized through your operator or camp). Remember to always greet them by shaking hand with the right as the left is considered rude.

6. See massive herds of elephants

The Amboseli National Reserve is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close and gives you a chance to really appreciate their family dynamics, and to watch them interacting with each other. If you’ve seen the iconic images of elephants wandering across the plains with the incredible snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro in the background, they were most likely taken here in Amboseli.
As well as elephants galore, Amboseli is home to the Big Five, as well as plenty of grazing animals such as giraffe, impala, eland, waterbuck, gazelle, more than 600 species of birds.
