Kenya Safari Holidays For The Adventuress

July 1, 2011   Filed under Travel Destination

For those looking for a different holiday experience, Kenya safari holidays could be just the thing. Africa is still the land of wide-open spaces, huge herds of game and dense jungles teeming with all sorts of exotic wildlife.

This beautiful country has much to commend it as a holiday destination. It has a geography that includes mountains, savannas and jungles. It is located on the equator and has a long coastline along the Indian Ocean. It also shares Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, with Uganda and Tanzania. It is named after Mount Kenya, the highest mountain in the country and the second highest mountain in Africa.

Probably the best time of year to visit is in June. This is the time of the annual Wildebeest migration through the Masai Mara game reserve. At this time every year over one million Wildebeest congregate, and the sight of them, stretching from horizon to horizon is not one to be missed. For the lions, the migration offers easy hunting as they pick off the stragglers.

It is also a time of plenty for the crocodiles in the Mara River, as the herd makes its relentless way through the swiftly flowing water. Hyenas also follow the herd, attacking the weak and the young.

Viewing the Kenyan bush from a hot air balloon is an experience of a lifetime. Imagine the exhilaration of gliding silently through the air with a birds eye-view of the land and the wildlife. The balloon pilot will bring you down to treetop level for a close up and will also soar to greater heights to give you an overall view of this magnificent land.

For those who want to experience the bush and wildlife up close and personal, there are walking safaris and camel safaris. These safaris are led by experienced trackers and guides. They will ensure that your Kenya safari holidays will be unforgettable.
