The Best Safari in Kenya
When you go on safari in Kenya, you want to try to see The Big Five! You almost always see three of them – the lion, elephant, and cape buffalo. The leopard and rhino can be a bit elusive, however, so you want a great safari guide.
We happen to work with the best safari guides that Kenya has to offer. They lead safaris expeditions year-round, when they aren’t driving the 100 Humanitarians team.
Go on a Maasai Mara Safari
The Maasai Mara is known for the Maasai Tribe, the indigenous people who live in and around the Masai Mara National Reserve. When you go on safari with a Maasai Guide, you learn from the people who know safari the best, because they have grown up with the big game animals.
The Serengeti and the Maasai Mara are only separated by political borders, with the Serengeti being 9 times the size of the Maasai Mara. The Maasai Mara is home to the Great Migration in Africa, where the wildebeest and other animals migrate around 1000 miles each year. The migration typically begins as the wildebeest cross the Mara River in July or August, but can be seen as early as June.
There is nothing quite like being out in the wild with animals in their natural habitat. Check out this video by our friend, Jonathan Kaelo.
The five brothers are a group of cheetahs that have banded together to hunt. It’s incredible to see them work together.
