If you want a change from the lazy beach holiday, why not try something new. Kenya, East Africa still offers the warm weather, but here you can also be part of something else, the wildlife. A Safari, meaning “journey” in Swahili, is a great way to explore wherever you are in a unique way and is guaranteed to bring excitement along the journey with you. If you want to experience this, safari’s in Kenya are the perfect way to do this, and you can take part in some of the most dramatic game viewing in the world.
Famous for its lions, the Masai Mara National Reserve is a very popular region to visit. Located in south-western Kenya, this is a beautiful place. Come here between July and October to see the Great Migration of wildebeest, zebra and Thomson’s gazelle.
If you would rather not get too up close and personal with these majestic animals, you might want to try a glorious balloon ride. The Masai Mara is also a perfect place for these, and http://www.porini.com/kenya.html?sub=balloon-safari offers this package, with a champagne breakfast after landing in the bush. This promises to be a magical experience which will stay with you forever, not to mention providing some fantastic photo opportunities.
If you crave the opportunity to add some delicious colour to your photographs, head to Lake Nakuru National Park. Here, 100 miles north of Nairobi, you will find pink Flamingo’s in abundance. This area is famous for the fantastic spectacle which these birds provide, sometimes over a million in number.

Wherever you choose to travel to in Kenya, there is so much to do and see. Safari your way through new memories and experiences, and more information visit My Destination Kenya.
