  3. 3. Kenya Destinations
  4. 4. Maasai Mara Game Reserve Adjoining the Serengeti National Park of Tanzania, a land of undulating hills and rolling grasslands supporting a huge animal population, Maasai Mara National Reserve is one of East Africa's best-known game viewing areas. Often the casual visitor will be treated to the sight of a cheetah roaming the plains to run down its prey; a lion pride, numbering as many as 20, led by a handsome black-maned male; or a leopard devouring its kill in the lower branches of the sausage tree.
  5. 5. Amboseli National Park Amboseli National Park is located right at the foot of Africa's highest mountain, Kilimanjaro (19, 340 feet). Feeding on the lush grasses, elephants abound in its forest and swamps. Cheetahs prowl the salt flats. Giraffes wander through the forest, while zebras and wildebeest feed on the open plains. The snow-capped dome of the Kibo Peak forms a magnificent backdrop, making this gem of a park a photographer's paradise.
  6. 6. Lake Nakuru National Park Lake Nakuru, a shallow alkaline body of water. Flamingos, often more than 1 million, literally turn its shores pink, a world famous spectacle, while feeding on the abundant algae that thrives in the warm waters. The park is a bird watchers paradise. More than 400 other species, including Pelicans, african fish eagles, white-winged black terns, stilts, avocets, ducks, and in the American winter, the migrant waders, reside on the lake and in the park, too. The park provide a sanctuary for the black rhinoceros, othschild's giraffes, waterbucks, zebras, elands, warthogs, impalas, mountain reedbucks, dik diks and Cape buffalos are common.
  7. 7. Tsavo National Parks Split in two by the main Nairobi/Mombasa highway, Kenya's largest park area covers a total area of 769 square miles. The Tsavo National Parks were once famous for their herds of more than 60,000 “red” elephants, so called for the red murrum earth, like talcum powder, with which they spray themselves. Although these herds have recently dwindled due to poaching and drought, a strong drive by Kenya Wildlife Service has brought peace to their lives, and the populations are increasing again. These parks are also known for their fabled maneless lions. In one year, just three of these lions ate as many as 140 Indian workers during construction of the Kenya-Uganda railway. Once reputed to be the fiercest predators in Africa, they were featured in the 1996 film Ghost and the Darkness.
