Kenya is a fantastic country for big-game safaris. Its vast parks and reserves are home to a great density and variety of wild animals and birds. It's also one of only a few African countries where you can see all of the Big Five: elephants, leopards, lions, Cape buffaloes and black rhinos. Moreover, the Great Wildlife Migration heads into south Kenya between June and October, offering a spectacle like none other on Earth!
