Join Topdeck and travel to the magnificent East African region of Kenya.
Safari your way through the epic Maasai Mara National Reserve and spot some incredible wildlife. See the Big Five as well as giraffes, hippos and big cats to boot – did you know hyenas are more closely related to cats than dogs? Neat! This place is one for the African bucket list for sure.
But it’s not all about the Mara. There’s also buzzing capital of Nairobi for you to explore and the stunning mountains and gorges of the Great Rift Valley to get excited about. Not to mention even more critters, big and small, all flocking to the water’s edge at Lake Nakuru National Park.
Attention nature lovers! Hear the call of the wild and travel to Kenya with Topdeck.
Africa’s Great Rift Valley is a huge cleft in the Earth's surface that stretches from the Red Sea to Madagascar. In Kenya, there are great viewpoints over this valley where you can start to get a sense of scale of this natural wonder. Keep your camera charged, we’re not lying when we say the views are epic.
A haven in East Africa, Lake Nakuru National Park is home to diverse habitats and abundant wildlife thanks to its location on the Great Rift Valley floor. Jump on a safari to hear expert nature guides sharing their knowledge of the local animals, from majestic rhinos to elegant flamingos lining the shore of the lake. This is one Kenyan adventure you don’t wanna miss!
Between July and October, the Mara is crossed every year by wildebeest, zebras and other animals as part of their migration from the Serengeti plains. If you’re lucky enough to visit during this time, it’ll be an experience like no other. As you cruise through the Mara in your overland vehicle, keep your eyes peeled for the Big Five: elephants, lions, rhinos, buffalos and leopards. Wildlife bingo anyone?
