Why We Love Kenya

It is the wide-open plains of the Maasai Mara teeming with herds of zebra, gazelles and wildebeest and dotted with Maasai herdsmen tending their cattle that draws us to Kenya. The Mara with its breathtaking landscapes and endless plains is an extraordinary place, bustling with wildlife, not only in the migration season, but all year round.

Your Travel Well-Being in Kenya


Lion World Travel's suggested locations that every traveler should visit on their next Kenyan adventure.

Aside from the Maasai Mara, our favorite places include the Samburu National Reserve, Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Amboseli National Park, Lake Elmenteita and Tsavo National Park.


Maasai Mara

The Maasai Mara National Reserve offers year-round abundant viewing of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion, cheetah and so much more. Witness the greatest show on earth from July to September as the Mara welcomes the great migration.

Samburu National Reserve

The Samburu National Reserve is an arid semi-desert land sparsely populated by proud nomadic people. The rugged and remote Samburu reserve provides some the best and most colorful game viewing. Large predators such as the lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs and birdlife are a common attraction to this protected area. The reserve hosts a huge population of elephants. Birdlife is abundant with over 450 species recorded.

Ol Pejeta Conservancy

This private conservancy offers a higher wildlife-to-area ratio than any of Kenya's national parks. It is home to all the members of the ‘Big Five' (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard). At the forefront of the Kenyan conservancy program, Ol Pejeta has the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, hosts the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya and shelters large numbers of rare and endangered species.

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park is home to the legendary Maasai tribesmen and known for its unrivalled views of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro and large elephant population. In Amboseli you may view a multitude of wildlife, including everything from lion and cheetah to wildebeest, elephant, giraffe and baboons. Despite Amboseli’s sometimes dry and dusty appearance, it has an endless supply of water filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Kilimanjaro’s snow melt.

Lake Elementaita

Lake Elmenteita region spans an outstanding range of wooded and bush grassland around the lake. Here there are fewer mammalian species than other areas in East Africa, but still has more than 10,000 animals roaming the conservancy. Lake Elmenteita is also home to both black and white rhino, the tufted-eared caracal, golden and striped jackals and other smaller predators. Over 300 bird species have been recorded here too.

Tsavo National Park

Kenya’s largest national park, Tsavo East is a great wildlife-watching destination and is famed for its huge numbers of dust-red elephants that gather at the Galana River and wander across the plains. Thanks to the flatter and drier landscape and thinly spread foliage, spotting wildlife is generally easier. Lions, leopards, rhinos, leopard, pods of hippo, buffalo, crocodile, waterbucks, lesser Kudu, gerenuk can be spotted, and the park is a haven for its prolific bird life.


What are people saying about our Kenya trips

"I chose Lion World Travel for my bucket list African safari vacation. It was my first time travelling to Africa and I wanted to see the last two Northern White Rhinos so going to Ol Pejeta was the number reason for booking the Luxury Kenya tour through Lion World.

My travel consultant was great, always answering any questions quickly and putting my worries at ease. Upon arrival in Kenya, the in country Lion World staff was incredible - they treated us like royalty and the tour was everything I had hoped it would be and so much more.

The accommodations were truly wonderful, our guides and drivers were fantastic - doing everything in their power to ensure we got to see as many of the animals we could and giving us the time we needed to take photos etc. I came home and immediately starting thinking about my next adventure - and have told a number of friends that are thinking of Africa that Lion World is the way to go"
