Maasai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most popular tourism destinations in the world. The reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley and set in primarily open grassland. It is named in honor of the Maasai people, the ancestral inhabitants of the area and their description of the area when looked at from afar: “Mara,” which is Maa (Maasai language) for “spotted,” an apt description for the circles of trees, scrub, savanna, and cloud shadows that mark the area.

The Maasai Mara National Reserve is only a fraction of the Greater Mara Ecosystem and is globally famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs. It is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas. The Great wildebeest Migration alone involves over 1.5 million Wildebeest, Zebra and Thomson’s gazelle arriving from the Serengeti in July and departing in November. This amazing spectacle is ranked as the 8th wonder of the world.
Nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant, and it is for this reason a visitor hardly misses to see the big five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino).

Tsavo West National Park

Covering an area of 9,065 square kilometers, Tsavo West is divided from the adjoining Tsavo East National Park by the Nairobi-Mombasa highway and Railway line, together they make up the largest conservation area in Kenya.

The areas Savannah ecosystem comprises of open grasslands, scrub-lands, and Acacia woodlands, belts of riverine vegetation and rocky ridges including the Poacher’s Lookout where visitors can see the teeming herds in the plains below.
Mzima Springs is one of park’s most popular wildlife attractions owing to its resident populations of hippos and Nile crocodiles, from the sight of fifty million gallons of crystal clear water gushing out of from the under parched lava rock that is the Mzima Springs to breathtaking lava flows, Tsavo West is a beautiful, rugged wilderness.

Malindi

Malindi is located north of Mombasa Island and can be reached by driving on the Mombasa-Malindi road. The town’s history is reputed to go back a thousand years but it can only be reliably dated to the 13th century by Arabic records and dated pottery shards. Many hotels serve the town whose main beach sweeps for 7 km round Malindi Bay. The long white sandy beach to the south of Malindi town is called Silversands, once only

occupied by private villas but now hosting a panorama of small, mostly Italian owned, hotels. A casino, nightclubs, fascinating ancient mosques, a colorful market, a nine hole golf course and, of course, the renowned Malindi Marine National Park all add to the resort’s many attractions. So does the fish market and the fishing club from which stalwarts from all over the world set forth in search of giants of the sea. Kenya holds several world records for big game fish and it was here that Hemingway lingered in the 30’s to enjoy his favorite sport.

All fishing within the Malindi Marine National Park is forbidden; so is the extraction of shells, starfish and coral. It is the coral gardens in the middle of the park, seen by skin diving, snorkeling or peering through the hull of a glass-bottomed boat, which is the fascination. Technicolor fish of various sizes and impossible shapes swim in a dazzling array. Flutemouths, thornheads, halfbeaks, zebra and parrotfish, hawkfishes, lizard fishes, trigger fishes, porcupine fish, puffers and hundreds of others bejewel the reef. Octopus pulse away in fear, rays wriggle to conceal themselves under a coat of sand; these and many more marvels live in abundance and safety within the Park’s boundaries.

On the north side of Malindi is an extensive salt pan system for evaporating sea water for salt; an eroded wasteland of sandstone cliffs and precipices, near Marafa, known as Hell’s Kitchen and a small Arabian Night’s town called Mambrui complete with its Islamic and Chinese relics, and beyond that Ngomeni, a small village and harbor at the entrance to Formosa Bay. This great bay sweeps in an expansive arc encompassing the wide delta of Kenya’s biggest river, the Tana Near Ngomeni, and set on piles in the shallow waters of the Bay is a rocket-launching site where weather satellites are launched from time to time. The entire coastline from Mabrui to Lamu Island has minimal development, in terms of tourism, although wonderful beaches, coves and seascapes exist in plenty.
