The Masai Mara National Park is an extensive wilderness filled with an amazing array of wildlife that roam between Kenya and Tanzania through the vast Serengeti plains. This totally unfenced reserve attracts gazelles, zebra and wildebeest traveling between the two countries in search of grass lands for grazing. Masai Mara is the park where tourists can view the spectacular wildebeest migration of hundreds of thousands of animals taking place between July and October.
One of the largest national parks in the world is the Tsavo located in Kenya. It's so large in fact that it's split into Western and Eastern portions. Its close proximity to the beaches makes it an ideal place to take a holiday while on safari. Tsavo East is where you may see huge numbers of roaming elephants and great herds of buffalo traveling through the savannah.
Tsavo West is a little more difficult to spot wildlife in because the terrain is composed of rocky outcrops, volcanic landscape, dense brush and long grasses. The waterholes do attract lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo's (the big five). There are a wide variety of accommodations in Tsavo such as Finch Hattons which offers luxury safari lodges and Voyager Ziwani Safari Camp where you can stay in tented camp facilities.
You can see a huge assortment of cheetahs, gazelles, wildebeest, zebras, baboons, buffalos and lions if you visit the Amboseli National Park; not far from Nairobi. Wildlife are easy to spot in this parks low growing vegetation and you are sure to see quite a gathering of wildlife towards evening at the water holes. If you're interested in a Kena safari to Amboseli you can find accommodations at the Ol Tukai Lodge or the Tortillis Camp that even accepts children during your stay.
If your timing is right you can view thousands of bright pink flamingos at Lake Nakuru National Park along with a great many other birds that flock to this lake.

There are plenty of accommodations including Sarova Lion Hill Lodge in the Rift Valley near the lake. Lake Nakuru Lodge is right in the park and Mbweha Lodge offers private camps adjacent to the park.
