Kenya is located in East Africa and, as a destination, it is renowned for being one of the best safaris in Africa. With over 20 national parks and game reserves to choose from, you could quite easily spend a numerous weeks on safari in Kenya, with exceptional game viewing every day.
That said, the most famous and popular national park to enjoy a Kenya safari in is the Masai Mara National Reserve. This park is located in the south of the country, on the border of Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. Both parks share the same ecosystem, and were both used as inspiration for Disney’s The Lion King (1994). The main difference is that the Serengeti is five times larger than the Mara. As a result, the wildlife is, to some extent, denser, especially in the Mara Triangle. Banner image: Karen Blixen Camp
