Your Kenya family  Safari departs Nairobi for the spectacular views found in Amboseli National Park. Here you’ll see Africa’s tallest peak, Mt Kilimanjaro – a towering backdrop to your stay. Amongst elephants, zebra, giraffe and dozens of bird species you’ll spend two nights here.

 

Lake Naivasha is up next on your tour. Set in the great rift valley, this cool, blue lake is home to hippos, zebras and bird life. Here you’ll take an easy boat safari, viewing the wildlife grazing on the shore.

Nearby Crescent Island features a walking safari where you will stroll amongst giraffes, zebras, impalas and waterbucks.

Then we’ll travel on to Hell’s Gate National Park, known for its abundant and peaceful wildlife. There are no big cats here, so we’ll have the opportunity to hike and bicycle past impalas, buffaloes, giraffes and zebras. You can’t get much closer to nature than this!

Your safari continues to Lake Nakuru National ParkDue to some progressive natural factors like increasing water levels , the flamingo numbers have been reducing  but the park itself remains  stunning – one of Kenya’s finest. Great rocky escarpments tower over acacia forest, waterfalls, wooded hills and euphorbia trees dot the lake.

The few quantity of  flamingos is accompanied by other birdlife – pelicans, cormorants, kingfishers, ostriches, storks as well as herons and eagles. The scene here is bountiful, busy and full of color.

But that’s only the beginning of what this special park has to offer because the wildlife viewing here is easy and accessible. Lake Nakuru is known for hosting some endangered but beautiful species. You’re sure to see rare Rothschild’s Giraffe along with white rhino, especially along the lakeshore.

The park is also sanctuary to one of Kenya’s largest populations of black rhino. So get your camera ready!

There are even more flamingos to be seen at Lake Bogoria National Reserve and we’ll visit there if you wish (at extra park fees of USD 50 Per Person).

But perhaps the most unique attraction at Lake Nakuru Park are the endangered black & white rhinos. During your visit here, you are guaranteed viewings of both species.

We’ve saved the biggest for last. Our final safari stop is at world-renowned Masai Mara game reserve. The Mara is a place of vast grasslands, dotted with signature acacia trees. Here you’ll find thousands of wildebeests, zebras and many other species marching across this famous plain.

There will be lots of game drives for you to spot the Big Five, plus many other wildlife, during your 4 days and 3 night stay here.

All-Inclusive. Your 8-Day Amboseli, Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru & Maasai Mara safari includes park entrance fees, accommodations and meals. Natural World kenya Safaris always offers a wide choice of accommodations. Depending on your budget and style choose from economy, comfort or luxury safari lodges or tented camps.

However… please know that whatever level of accommodation you choose, your actual safari adventure with us will always be at our highest standards.

Other popular Kenya Family Safari Holidays

Meet Joseph Mbote

Many of us have seen Born Free, the dramatic and emotional story of Elsa the lioness and her caretaker, Joy Adamson. As much as the story may have moved us it probably didn’t change our lives as dramatically as it did for young Joseph Mbote.

As a boy growing up in Mombasa, Kenya, Joseph’s family didn’t have the means to visit his country’s national parks with their outstanding wildlife. Seeing the emotional story of the orphaned lioness on TV was his first exposure to the world of animals and a turning point in his young life.

“I used to watch that as a very young man. It inspired me a lot to who I am today.”

Indeed, the heartfelt tale was the spark that kindled Joseph’s desire to become an African Safari guide. Later, in high school, he was able to visit national parks in a program that provided access for Kenya’s school children.

“First time I saw a lion I was scared because it was so close. You see them on TV and can’t imagine they are that big.”

But those experiences only solidified Joseph’s calling. Several years of college followed where he studied in the classroom and in the field to become a guide. Following graduation, he apprenticed with a touring company and passed the exams for the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association – the country’s professional organization for safari guides.

A year of training as a junior guide came next and Joseph was ready to begin his long and fulfilling career as a safari guide. That was back in 1993 and the work has only become more rewarding, “Tourism changes. It’s evolving. The information that you got years ago is not the same as it is today.”

A Non-Typical Safari Day

Joseph says there is no typical safari day for him. So many factors influence  the journey – the time of year, the particular national park, the length of the safari, and the wishes of his guests.

On some safaris, he’ll be up early, taking his guests out for a morning drive around 6:00 a.m. “A lot of people feel that when you leave very early in the morning it’s the time when the animals are the most active. Which is partly true.”

A few hours later he’ll return to the lodge so his guests can enjoy breakfast. This is followed by another morning game drive and then a return to the lodge for lunch. Later in the day, around 4:00 p.m., Joseph will take his guests out for an afternoon drive.

However, on longer safaris and especially when in the Masai Mara Reserve, Joseph likes to grab box lunches for everyone and head out with his guest for a full day of safari action.

“I love Masai Mara – I call it a lion documentary. When I am in the Mara, I always insist on a full day game drive – there is so much to see there. There’s so much wildlife.”

Joseph stays in touch with the other guides in the park so they can communicate any animal sightings. “We have 62 prides of lions, over 500 of them. I can say there’s an assurance you will see the cats.”

The Lion King

When Joseph first saw the movie, “The Lion King” he was amazed that scenes depicted in the film seemed to have been taken right from the Mara landscapes he frequents as a guide. One of the prides of this area is called the black rock pride.

Even some of the individual animals have been given names, “They have a lion they have named, Scar. In other areas, they don’t give names to these animals. But in the Mara, they give names to these specific animals. Why? Because the locals are also involved as guides.”

This emphasis on individual animals even focuses on the millions of wildlife that migrate yearly into the Masai Mara.

“We are expecting a zebra that crossed from the Serengeti last year, a spotted zebra. We are hoping to see it again. But no one has seen it yet. A zebra that was born instead of stripes it had spots.”

Incredible as it seems, Joseph and his fellow guides will be looking for this rare spotted zebra on its return to the park, amidst the uncountable hordes of streaming wildlife. And they’ll probably spot it.

“We just love these animals. We just want to be here.”

Everything For The Guests

Joseph Mbotte with guests at Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya

But Joseph’s greatest thrill is the excitement and joy he can bring his guests, especially on their first animal sighting.

“You can see their excitement. Not even with the cats… when they first see a zebra – ‘Oh, that’s a zebra! Zebra, my god!’ And you don’t want to tell them there are 10,000 zebras still ahead.”

Joseph laughs, recalling these wonderful moments. His specialty is a customized experience for his guests – he works to accommodate any unique requests.

“Sometimes you get guests who just want to listen to nature, and they don’t want anything to do with the radios. So, you also have to understand your guests, what they want.”

Joseph will turn his radio off so as not to disturb the natural ambiance of their surroundings.  No longer in touch with the other guides or rangers, it’s just he, his guests and the animals.

“And now that’s where your experience comes in. You have a rough idea of what you are looking for and you’ll go straight to an area where a pride is known to be. So you start searching. I’ll be driving around the bushes just looking… and when you find a pride, there is that sense of satisfaction that you made it. So that means the guests see you actually know what you’re doing!”

Joseph feels a great affection for his safari guests and they always seem to return that feeling.

“The British and the Americans especially, they get really emotional, especially when you are parting. For many, it has been their dream of a lifetime to come and visit the Masai Mara just to be on safari. So you can imagine the satisfaction and you might end up crying.”

Joseph’s career has been filled with many such inspiring and emotional moments serving his valued guests. For him, his life’s work has been soaking up the natural world and sharing it with others – “I love the wild, that’s where I am really happy. It’s just you, the animals, and the birds.”

Explore East Africa with Natural World Kenya Safaris:

 

 

 

 

Kenya in East Africa is world famous for its exciting African wildlife safari tours and excellent game viewing drives.

Say the word “safari” and you’ll picture the grasslands, bush and wildlife of Kenya. This is the place where the safari was born. In fact, even the word safari comes from our local language ‘Swahili’.

Safari is the main reason for holiday travel to East Africa for tourists from Europe, America, Middle East countries and Asia.

Free roaming wildlife in their natural scenic habitat coupled with wonderful all year warm weather, cultural diversity and friendly people make Kenya the ultimate natural holidays destination.

Kenya safari tour packages

Kenya safari packages range in duration, national parks and game reserves on list of visit, tour booking composition and more.

Safari tours range from the 1 day Kenya tours to any maximum days that tour participants would love to spend in the country.

Safari packages can be low priced , moderate priced or expensive depending on the following related outlined factors.

What determines Kenya safari budget

A Kenya safari budget is determined by duration / length of safari, choice of safari lodges and tented camps, safari vehicle choice, safari year seasons, number of persons booking together, national parks visited and extra activities included.

1.) Safari seasons in Kenya

Kenya safari tourist  seasons fall into three categories. The tourist seasons are a considerable factor in the determination of your safari tour package budget

1.a) Low tourist season (April – June)

This is during the anticipated long rains season in Kenya which coincides with Spring season in Europe and most of North America. Few tourists  visit Kenya during this period and thus its reference as low tourist season.

The rainfall doesn’t adversely  affect the quality of the safari game viewing drives and also lowers temperatures.

Accommodation prices in the safari lodges and tented camps are low which reflects on the total safari package price.

The advantage with travel during this period is the uninhibited movements and more intimate moments with wildlife and nature due to little tourists’ presence

If you’re looking to go on a safari during the long rains season, you will get the benefit of enjoying  low safari package rates, as this is  a time period with few tourists.

The low tourist season period is when tour package prices are at their lowest and you can enjoy a low budget safari

1.b) Peak tourist season (June – October)

June, July, August and September are regarded as the peak tourist season in Kenya and coincides with summer season in Europe, North America and elsewhere.

The weather in Kenya is generally cool and dry as it is after the long rains season

It also happens to be the period during which one of the most famous wildlife spectacle Kenya has to offer occurs when the Wildebeest migration, where huge herds of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras, enter the Masai Mara from the Serengeti in Tanzania.

Herds make regular swims across croc-filled rivers, creating a once in a lifetime opportunity to capture the true essence of Kenya’s wildlife.

The Kenya safari tour package prices are high during this period due to the dictates of supply and demand as most tourists find this the best time to tour Kenya.

The Kenya safari package budget is relatively high during this period

1.c) High / Shoulder tourist season (November – March

Once the tourist peak season is over, Kenya enters its shoulder or high season from October to March with a little peak period during Christmas / New year holiday from 22nd  December to 2nd January.

The short rain season  hits several regions of Kenya making the national parks and game reserves to regain their lost vegetation cover.

The rainfall doesn’t usually affect the quality of the safari and can often be a refreshing break from the high temperatures in previous peak seasons. This makes it an ideal habitat for migratory birds and new born animals.

Game viewing drives are still excellent during this tourist season of the  year, it is a good opportunity to secure excellent value for money safari tours at a low budget.

2) Accommodation choice / category on safari

Safari accommodation  is a main component of your tour package cost and thus a consideration on your Kenya safari budget.

2.a) Luxury level safari Lodges and Tented Camps

In almost all instances, luxury lodges & Tented camps  are located at vantage locations within the national parks and game reserves. They are unique in architecture and design. They enjoy proximity  to the wildlife viewing areas. The facilities and comfort levels are of higher standard. Rooms/, tents are private and en -suite. There shall most likely be a swimming pool in most of the luxury facilities.

If you choose to stay in the luxury lodge / tented camp category, your safari budget shall be relatively higher

2.b) Comfort level safari  Lodges and Tented Camps

Comfort level lodges and tented camps may be  located inside or just at the boundaries of the national parks and game reserves. Others may be slightly further. In all instances, they are less than 30 minutes from the park entry gate. The standard of comfort levels are sufficiently adequate although relatively lower than for luxury accommodation level. The rooms and tents in this comfort level category are also private and en suite. Most comfort  lodges / tented camps shall have a swimming pool.

If your choice of accommodation level falls under the comfort category, your safari package budget shall be moderate.

2.c) Economy safari Lodges and Tented Camps

Almost all economy lodges and tented camps (except a few) are located outside of the National park boundaries and just next to the park. They are simple, comfortable and sufficiently adequate for relaxation, overnight and meals although relatively basic compared to the luxury and comfort options. Rooms and tents are private and have en -suite bathroom facilities. Most of the economy options may also have a swimming pool.

Your safari package budget shall be lowest if you choose to stay in the economy accommodation.

3.) Safari vehicle type

Your choice of safari vehicle to journey through Kenya is important due to the nature of roads and the rough terrain of the safari country in the national parks and game reserves.

The safari vehicle is the direct link between your wildlife dreams and actualization of the same. It brings you right where the wild animals are and gets close enough for the most memorable photographs.

  • The Jeep’s 4 x 4 all-wheel drive and higher platform will get you through the toughest terrain, up hills, crossing streams and over rough bush.
  • The higher seating in a Jeep creates better visibility to view and photograph wildlife
  • Jeeps go where other vehicles fear to tread – head deeper into the bush and easily go off-road to pursue that elusive leopard
  • The Jeep’s special suspension offers a more comfortable ride on rough ground.
  • The 4×4 Jeep is built for the demands of a safari adventure – more doors for easy access, 2 fuel tanks  and two spare tires
  • More roomy and stable than a minivan
  • The Jeep’s pop up top ensures an unobstructed view
  • You’ll be journeying to and traversing the African landscape in the ultimate safari vehicle as adventurers have for over 70 years.

The safari Jeep  as part of the safari package price is a considerable factor in your Kenya safari budget

4.) Kenya National parks and game reserves

Kenya national parks , game reserves and conservancies charge an entry fee based on 24 hours stay. The entry fees is a considerable component of your Kenya safari budget.

The National parks and game reserves you choose to visit during your safari budget also play a role in the determination of your safari package budget.

National parks are classified as class A ,B,C D according to their popularity which is based on access and wild game visibility opportunities.

Park entry fees for the national parks are charged per day with validity of 24 hours.

Premium parks have a higher entry fee than the lower premium parks.

 

5.) Safari group size

During your Kenya safari booking planning, the number of persons in your travel group is also a strong determinant of your Kenya safari budget.

The larger the group, the cheaper per person price for each individual.

Family groups, student groups, same interest travel groups travelling together enjoy better safari package prices. This is because the vehicle and room cost which are constant are shared between trip participants.

Our safari cruisers  seat a maximum of 6 persons with guaranteed window seats and safari rooms in lodges and camps sleep a maximum of 3 persons.

Children prices are lower in family safari packages with 3 year olds and less travelling free while the above 3 and below 12 years aged pay 75% of the adult tour price.

There is a further slight safari price discount for those over 12 years and lower than 18 years

A 19-year veteran Kenya  safari guide, Daniel Musyoki is only happy when his clients are happy with their safari. “I want to give them memories they will cherish for the rest of their life. When I look at them, I hope to see that they are really satisfied with what they have seen.”

Born in eastern Kenya, Daniel was always fascinated by the animals he saw growing up, but his first love wasn’t the drama of nature but rather the drama of the stage. Daniel dreamed of being an actor. But then a good friend took him on a safari to the Tsavo and Amboseli parks and suddenly he was hooked on the wildlife of Kenya.

“Something I came to realize – nature – you cannot get tired of nature. It is so satisfying. It is never the same regardless of how many times you do safari.”

Enrolling in a college program for budding guides, Daniel studied in the classroom and the field. He had to pass a series of rigorous exams and then began his apprenticeship in the company of an experienced guide.

In time, Daniel learned enough on the plains and savannahs to become a lead guide himself. All that happened 19 years ago and today Daniel is one of Natural World Kenya Safari’s most experienced guides.

A Guide Is Up Before the Sun

 

On a typical safari day, Daniel is up at 4:30 am to get everything ready for his guests, who he meets around 6:30 for the first game drive of the day.

Daniel explains the early morning is the best time to look for lions and the other cats:

“When I leave for the morning game drive, my main agenda is to look for the cats, the lion, leopard, and cheetah. Because that is the time before the tropical temperatures are high. So, when we commence game viewing drives within  the National Park we go to their favorite areas, where they love to frequent.”

Daniels says that the elephants, giraffes, buffalos, antelopes, and others are easier to spot as they will be out during the entire day grazing or browsing. But for the big cats, morning is prime time for finding them out in their natural environment as they are hunters.

“We try as much as we can to spot the big cats in the morning. If we don’t spot them, then we have another chance to head in search of them in the evening. But if we see them in the morning then everyone is satisfied.”

Not only are his guests thrilled to spot a lion or cheetah first thing in the day but sometimes some unexpected safari moments occur:

“We try to spend some time with them ,to show guests the animals’ movements, walking around – for example, lion cubs playing with their mother it is a wonderful moment.”

Midday and Rest

Several hours of safari activity are sure to increase one’s appetite and Daniel heads back to the safari lodge or camp so his guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch, rest, go swimming, or just admire the environment. The next game drive is usually later in the afternoon, around 4 PM when the temperature begins to drop, and the big cats come out again to hunt.

The Afternoon Game Drive

Daniel confesses that he’s just as excited to go out exploring again as he was in the morning: “It’s always unpredictable. Animals that you might not have seen in the morning you may find in the evening. Other times animals that you saw in the morning you might find again in the evening.”

Depending on the time of year and other factors Daniel may pull over at a scenic spot for a “sundowner”, a leisurely safari time out where guests will be served drinks and enjoy the view.

“I can tell you 99.9% of clients are happy, in a great mood, their spirits are quite high, they are excited…. I am bonding with the clients. They are getting value for their safari. When I look at them, I see the satisfaction that they are really happy with what they have seen.”

The Safari Experience

 

Perhaps nothing pleases Daniel as much as the moment when his guests spot their first safari animal. First-time safari-goers don’t even have to spot a lion to be thrilled:

“Especially the first game drive – even the first antelope or first monkey. They yell ‘Stop! Stop!’ they are so excited!”

Daniel laughs recalling the delight he takes in his guests’ enjoyment of their safari adventure. His favorite safari is the 7-day journey that begins in Amboseli Park.

“In Amboseli, the client will have the opportunity to see Africa’s highest mountain, that is Kilimanjaro. Then we have lots and lots of elephants. It’s a small park with a big population of elephants.”

“Then we go to Masai Mara for 3 nights and it is quite satisfying for the clients. You have a big opportunity to see the rest of the big five.”

With his years of shepherding hundreds, if not thousands of guests through the plains of Africa, no moment in Daniel’s vast safari travels moved him as much as the revelations one family experienced upon finishing their safari:

“They didn’t want to leave. The whole family was crying. They had fallen in love with the animals. It was beyond their expectations. They were going to sell everything and come back and settle in Africa!”

According to Daniel, the family is still making plans for their return to Africa. But whether it actually happens or not, he takes pride in the moments he was able to give them:

“To give memories they will cherish for the rest of their life. …. We went to Kenya and it was ‘wow’.”

Such are the memories that Daniel Musyoki creates for his guests.

Natural World Kenya Safaris suggests these few considerations and family holiday packages to assist you in the planning of a family safari trip

Best time for family holiday trip to Kenya

Kenya is an all-year-round holiday safari destination, however some periods are better than others for specific attractions, activities and also relaxation . For most rewarding safaris and game viewing drives ,the cool and dry season from July – October is the best time coinciding also with the holiday season in Europe and the great wildebeest migration from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya. November to March is also an excellent time to visit due to the dry and sunny weather and also opportunities to view game due to the sparse vegetation in the national parks as a result of the dry season. The Kenya coast beach resorts of Mombasa, Malindi, Watamu and Diani are at their best due to the favourable weather. Its also winter in Europe and what better holiday than to combine wildlife viewing, scenic nature and sunshine in Kenya

A Refuge for Chimpanzees, Rhinos & More

In an ironic twist of fate, Ol Pejeta, at one time a cattle ranch, is now a private reserve devoted to saving and protecting animals.

Those animals include the largest population of black rhinos (111) in East Africa. And, the only two surviving northern white rhinos… the last on the planet, live here.

Here too, is the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary – the only place in Kenya where you can enjoy the antics of these lively and intelligent creatures. Created as a partnership between the conservancy, the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Jane Goodall Institute, this sanctuary rescues orphaned and abandoned chimpanzees from across Africa.

Just a 3-hour drive from Nairobi, Ol Pejeta is home to all of the “Big Five” wildlife and has one of the highest predator densities of big cats in Kenya. There’s a good chance you’ll see lions on your game drives as the six prides here offer a population of 72 of the great felines.

The conservancy also is home to around 30 cheetah and 20 of the phantom-like leopards. This is also one of the few parks where you may spot packs of African wild dogs. There was even a litter here a few years back, so the population continues to grow.

Being a conservancy, Ol Pejeta shelters other endangered species such as oryx, hartebeest, Grevy’s zebra and the bat-eared fox.

Like most Kenya parks you’re likely to come across various displays of giraffe, monkey, baboon, hippo, impala, gazelle, zebra, jackal and hyena. And the birdlife here is robust as well.

Game Corridors

Ol Pejeta employs a clever innovation to allow the animals free range of movement yet also protects the vulnerable rhinos. Special corridors allow the park’s wildlife to move in and out of the conservancy stepping over knee-high posts. This presents no obstacle to any of the animals except for the rhinos who are stopped from wandering into areas where they might be killed for their horns.

Habitats

The park’s 5 habitats provide a diversity of land and flora which help the variety of wildlife here to flourish. On your game drives you’ll be looking for the animals that make their home in these areas:

  • Grasslands
  • Open bush
  • Dense bush
  • Riverine
  • Swamp

Accommodations

The conservancy offers 9 accommodations from river camping to the most luxurious lodges. Some of the tented camps are adjacent to watering holes to ensure plenty of day and nighttime game viewing.

About Ol Pejeta Conservancy

The conservancy is 360 sq. km (139 sq. mi) and 207 km (128 mi) from Nairobi.

Location: Between the foothills of the Aberdares and snow-capped Mt. Kenya in central Kenya.

Climate: Because it is near the equator temperatures don’t fluctuate too much. Expect daytime temperatures to be around 24oC (75oF).

Best time to visit: Wildlife is easier to track during the dry months of June through September and December through February. However, the park is distinctly more lush during the wet season of October through May.

Operating Hours: The park is open daily from 0700 hrs. to 2100 hrs.

Getting there: By road – you can book a tour with Natural World Kenya Safaris from Nairobi.

By air – fly in safaris can land at the Nanyuki. Airstrip.

Things to do and see

Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary – Home to about 40 rescued chimps, the sanctuary has 24-hour veterinary care to support and nurse the chimps back to good health. When they are ready, the chimps are brought into one of two large groups, living in large, natural enclosures. From an elevated observation post, keepers are happy to share with you each chimp’s story.

Endangered Species Enclosure – This large drive-through area is the protected home to the last two remaining northern white rhinos. Other endangered species, Grevy’s zebra and Jackon’s hartebeest are here as well.

Morani Information Center – named for Morani, a favorite black rhino who lived here for years, this center is a hands-on museum for visitors to touch such artifacts as a leopard skin and antelope horns to get a closer understanding of the park’s wildlife.

Night safari – This is a special opportunity to experience the park and the biosphere when the sun goes down. You may spot some unique wildlife that only appear after dark like aardvark, fox and leopard.

Cycling Safari – for a different way to view the park, try a full day bike safari. The route is 42 km (26 mi) and offers a closer view of the animals. A lunch stopover at Big Rock is included along with some light rock climbing.

Horseback riding – You can’t get closer to nature or the animals than a horse-riding safari. This brings a whole new perspective to your relationship with the wildlife. Offered to experienced riders only.

Discover Ol Pejeta

Ol Pejeta is one of the few conservancies that accommodates day visitors and provides so many special activities. Cycle, ride or go for a night safari. You’ll have the rare opportunity to view some of the last species left on earth, and others that are being nurtured back from extinction.

Let’s get to know some of these options to have you get a better grasp on what to expect during a trip to Kenya.

Bar Hopping in Mombasa

“I Had a Farm in Africa”

No one who has read the book or seen the movie, “Out of Africa” can forget those words of narrator Karen Blixen as she describes her life running a coffee plantation at the foot of Kenya’s Ngong Hills.

The colonial plantation home of Blixen in Nairobi was immortalized in the aforementioned book and movie. Now, you can visit Mbogani (“house in the woods”) as Blixen named the early 20th-century manor as it has been transformed into a museum commemorating her life experiences in an Africa of a certain period and place.

Step back in time to view artifacts of Blixen’s world of colonial elegance and her legendary romance with the English big-game hunter, Denys Finch Hatton. Here you will see personal objects that belonged to Blixen and Finch Hatton, including a lantern that Karen hung on the veranda to let her lover know that she was home… waiting for him.

Guided tours will introduce you to the house, the gardens and the life that Blixen shared with her husband Baron Bror Blixen-Finecke and later, with her lover, Finch Hatton. The home is a perfect example of colonial bungalow architecture with its sweeping verandahs and expansive rooms.

In the museum’s composed ambiance, it’s easy to be transported to another era with its pleasing views of the cultivated grounds, the surrounding forest and the nearby Ngong Hills, so meaningful to Karen.

Into Africa

The house was designed and built in 1912 by Swedish engineer Ake Sjogren, about the same time the Blixens came to Africa with the dream of starting a coffee plantation. They married in Mombasa in 1914 and purchased the estate in 1916. However, Bror had little interest in managing the day to day business of the plantation, a duty which fell to Karen.

The marriage soon foundered due to Bror’s infidelities and the couple divorced in 1920. Karen became the sole owner and manager of the farm. She wrote of her life living alone as a single woman in a male-oriented society and working with the local Kikuyu people.

She also chronicled her time with Finch Hatton, said to be one of literature’s great romances.

In 1931 Finch Hatton was killed in an airplane crash flying to his beloved Tsavo and Blixen sold the farm returning to her native Denmark. There, she wrote of her life and loves in Africa.

The house was eventually purchased by the Danish government in 1964 and given to the newly independent government of Kenya.

The Movie

Blixen’s writings first appeared in the 1930s under the pseudonym Isak Dinesen. She was soon recognized for her well-crafted and unique vision.

In 1985 her most famous work, “Out of Africa” was adapted into a film with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. The movie’s instant success inspired the Kenya government to transform the house into a museum illuminating Blixen’s life. It opened to the public in 1986.

Exploring the finely restored home, you’ll not only see articles that belonged to Karen Blixen and Denys Finch Hatton, but also props and memorabilia from the classic film. It is truly a journey to a distinct time in Kenya’s history.

Climate: Nairobi is warm with a significant amount of rainfall throughout the year. The temperature here averages 20oC/68oF.

Things to Do and See

The Gardens – The lovely gardens are certainly worth a visit. Here you’ll find the old coffee machines from the plantation, unused for many decades.

Discover the Karen Blixen Museum

Everything about Serengeti National Park is endless. Its vast rolling savannahs appear to stretch out past the horizon. So too, the immense herds of wildebeests, marching by the millions in their great migration – the largest movement of animals on the planet.

This is Africa at its most epic. Lions? Over 3,000. More than any other park on earth. Over two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle astonish visitors with their vast exodus parading the ancient cycles of nature. The rivers here are filled with crocodiles and hippos while overhead 500 species of birdlife take wing.

Chances are when you picture Africa, images of the great Serengeti are what come to mind – the immense sweep of grasslands, populated by the vast herds of elephant (5,000), hyena (4,000), plus jackal, wolf, wild dog, honey badger and seven species of mongoose.

On these infinite golden plains, you can spot all the “Big Five” including buffalo (53,000) and black rhino. And the Serengeti’s forests are home to several species of baboon and monkey.

The park is so singularly spectacular that it has been named one of the “Seven Natural Wonders of Africa” and one of the “Ten Natural Travel Wonders of the World”. It has also been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But it is perhaps the name “Serengeti”, from the Maasai phrase “siringet” or “endless plains”, that best describes the feeling of awe as one takes in Tanzania’s oldest and most popular park.

The Regions of Serengeti

Though most imagine the plains as the Serengeti, this immense reserve is actually divided into three eco-regions.

  • The Serengeti plains: These are the great treeless expanses of grassland in the south which most think of as typifying the park. Here the wildebeest breed from roughly December to May. You’ll find other hoofed animals here like zebra, gazelle, impala, hartebeest, buffalo and waterbuck.
  • Western Corridor: This area is mostly known for the Grumeti River and its surrounding forests, where crocodiles, monkeys, hippos and eagles dwell.
  • The Northern Serengeti: This area is primarily open woodlands and hills. Though not heavily visited, this region is a good environment to spot elephant and giraffe.

The vast Serengeti ecosystem is one of the planet’s oldest, its vegetation and wildlife are little different than they appeared a million years ago.

The area is a prehistoric cradle for mankind as well. Early man inhabited the nearby Olduvai Gorge about 2 million years ago. Signs of early tool making, and other artifacts have been found here.

About Serengeti National Park

Like everything else here, Serengeti Park is immense at 14,763 sq. km (5,700 sq. mi).

Location: The park lies in northwest Tanzania, 335 km (208 mi) from Arusha and extends north to Kenya, bordering Lake Victoria to the west.

Climate: It can rain often but not for very long. The average minimum temperate is 16°C/61°F and maximum is 26°C/79°F.

Best time to visit: There’s lots to see in the park, so it depends on your interests. The best time to see the migration is December through July. To view the predators, visit June through October. You may want to avoid the heavy rainfall in April and May. There’s so much to see and do in the Serengeti we recommend a 3 or 4-day safari here.

Getting there: By road – you can book a tour with Natural World Kenya Safaris from Nairobi. Drive from Arusha, Lake Manyara or Ngorongoro Crater

By air – fly in safaris can land at several regional airstrips. The closest is Seronera. There are also 3 international airports at Mwanza, Arusha and Kilimanjaro.

Accommodations: You’ll find everything here from basic campsites to top end luxury lodges and even mobile camps that follow the migration.

Things to do and see

The Great Migration – This is without a doubt the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth. The sight of innumerable wildebeest and zebra marching in columns 40 km (25 mi) long is unforgettable. You can also witness the early life cycle of the wildebeests in February when more than 8,000 wildebeest calves are born every day.

Visit the Kopjes – Kopjes are large rock formations that punctuate the Serengeti plains like so many islands. Vegetation sprouts from them and they offer shade, water and a vantage point for the predators. Some of the kopjes are decorated with African rock paintings created by Maasai cattle herders.

Ballooning Safaris – For an unusual but exciting way to view this marvelous landscape and its millions of wild inhabitants, nothing beats a hot air balloon ride at dawn. You can watch the sunrise light up the savannah and view the animals as they emerge into the new day.

 

Visit a Masai Village – The Maasai have lived in the Serengeti for hundreds of years. You can visit their villages and learn about their culture and lifestyle, possibly watch a dancing ceremony and visit the village school.

Olduvai Gorge – Near this eternal place lies another site of antiquity in the form Olduvai Gorge – a steep-sided ravine of about 48 km (30 mi). Early man inhabited this spot 2 million years ago, leaving behind an ancient treasure of artifacts and tools. It’s considered to be one of the most significant archeological sites in the world.

Discover Serengeti

The Serengeti is an absolute must-see reserve with its infinite open spaces dotted with acacia trees and occasional kopjes. With its immense population of big cats, wildebeests and zebras you’ll quickly see why this is one of the most popular safari parks in the world.
