East Africa is the most unique and exciting tour destination on the planet for wildlife viewing, offering a modern, stylish experience in a relatively unspoiled environment. East Africa is the last refuge on earth for teeming herds of plentiful wildlife species roaming free against the backdrop of wide open savannah grasslands, forests, woodlands, snowcapped mountains and sandy beaches. From the big five to the small five, Kenya’s game parks, reserves and other wildlife protection areas host some of the wildest game thus the reason why this is home for the safari. Dotted in their unique landscapes, geographical features, a vast array of game ensues. The icing on Kenya’s wildlife cake is the annual Wildebeest Migration at the infamous Maasai Mara migration between mid-August and late October. This is the best example of wild nature at its best as hundreds of thousands of wildebeests, zebras, Thomson’s gazelles, Topi and Elands. Seeing the “Big Five” in the wild is one of the most memorable things one can ever experience. In particular the Maasai Mara National Reserve is famous for the incredible possibilities seeing the Big Five up close. The term “Big Five” is reminiscent of the old safari hunting days. The name is not derived from the size of the animals as many people believe. Rather, these five animals proved to be the five animals that were the most difficult to hunt on foot. While hunting is still legal in few African countries, the majority of the ‘shooting’ nowadays is done with cameras.
