"Kenya" Africa Favorite Tip by tompt

  lions of the Masai Mara
by tompt

Favorite thing: Kenya is known for safari. Safari is the Masai word for travel / trip. But in the tourist sense it means spotting wild animals. Kenya has some great game parks. One is the Masai Mara, a park with open grassy plains. It is bordering the Serengeti in Tanzania. The two parks are known for the Trek of the Wildebeests. Millions of animals migrate from one park to the other and back. When the grass in the Masai Mara is green they come. And the lions are waiting for them....
We visited other parks too. The capital Nairobi is a busy, hot city and we were glad we left it after a good night sleep.

At our Masai Mara, Amboseli, Lake Naivasha and Kenya pages.

Fondest memory: Seeing a lion in the bushes just a minute after we made a sanitairy stop in the open field........
