• Amboseli - Resting at the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro, Amboseli contains 2 swamps nestled in the midst of this vast arid grassland. African elephants are plentiful and the sparse vegetation provides excellent opportunities for viewing the buffalo, impala, lion, cheetah, hyena, giraffes, zebra, and wildebeest in Amboseli.
• Lake Nakuru - The lake’s naturally occurring algae attracts more than 2 million flamingos to the shores of Lake Nakuru along with over 400 other species of bird. Zebra, impala, gazelle, lion, leopard, hyena, hippo, buffalo and white rhino are common along with 30 endangered Rothschild giraffe.
• Mt Kenya - Mt Kenya stands as the 2nd highest mountain in Kenya at 17,057 feet. Most visitors ascend to Point Lenana at 16,355 feet, beyond which requires techincal climbings. The Mt Kenya National Park is home to elephant, bushbuck, eland, rhino, leopard and waterbuck.
• Samburu - This collection of 3 parks attracts a diverse array of animals to its permanent supply of water. Leopards are more common here than anywhere else in Kenya. Lion, cheetah, elephant, buffalo and hippo live here along with more rare Beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe and more than 350 species of bird.
• Aberdares - The park’s streams, rivers, and waterfalls are surrounded by mountain tops. Great hunters like the lion, leopard and African hunting dog live in this less traveled park, attracted by the Cape buffalo, waterbuck, eland, elephant and baboon. The waterholes in the park provide for excellent wildlife viewing at night.
• Sweetwaters - View some 26 orphaned chimps while boating through the Chimpanzee Sanctuary located here. Positioned between the slopes of Mt Kenya and Aberdares, Sweetwaters affords the opportunity to see lion, elephant, white and black rhino, cheetah and even Max, the park’s tame rhino.
