Visit This East African Destination For Incredible Wildlife Views
Between spectacular sunrises and sunsets, you can witness amazing wildlife on a safari. Kenya, specifically the Masai Mara National Reserve, is ideal for such an experience.
Called the "big five" because of the threat and challenge they once posed to hunters, the leopard, lion, rhinoceros, African elephant, and Cape buffalo roam freely in the reserve.
At Masai Mara, safaris range in price and length. The Explorer's Wild Adventure is three days and starts at $280 per person, while Timbuktu's 10-night trip costs thousands.
Trek across the land to see the big five roaming about and almost 500 bird species. You'll also likely encounter animals like zebras, cheetahs, hippos, and antelope.
Book a traditional jeep and walking trip, or try a horse riding or hot air balloon safari over the region. You can also stay at a lodge that immerses you in the environment.
Stay in a luxury canvas tent amid giraffes and elephants at Bushtops Safari Camps. Try Porini Lion Camp or Emboo River Camp for other unique stays and wildlife sightings.
