Kenya has long been a top destination for safari seekers. Showcasing a wealth of wildlife, each ecologically diverse game park has its own allure. Breathtaking landscapes, endless plains and unrivalled game viewing year round, the Masai Mara, is where huge herds of wildebeest and other herbivores make their way during the annual Great Migration.
