Above: Two wildebeests at sunset. Kenya’s Masai Mara national reserve is famous for the annual Wildebeest Migration in August-September, when up to a million animals migrate in a big circle from the Serengeti in Tanzania to Kenya and back. It’s one the biggest wildlife shows on earth.

Above: A religious leader from the Kikuyu tribe involved in a ritual. Contrary to especially the Masai, Samburu and Turkana, the Kikuyu however have largely adopted Western lifestyles – though you’ll find beliefs in witchcraft etc. among most Kenyans.

male lion, kenya

Above: Wow, impressive… This male lion looks terrific but they can and will kill a human in a few seconds when they feel an urge to do so. Although lions aren’t the easiest animals to spot, it is possible to see them with a bit of luck if you visit one of the national parks. I still remember when I first encountered a pack of 15 lions in Tsavo East.

Above: Lake Paradise in Marsabit National Park, one the less visited parks in Kenya. If you’re looking to have a large chunk of Kenya all to yourself, this is one of your options (together with e.g. Mount Elgon National Park and Saiwa Swamp National Park).

Above: A small dhow, one of the traditional vessels that has been in use for centuries on the Indian Ocean and Lake Victoria (the huge lake between Kenya and Uganda) for fishing and trade. These days you can rent a dhow with crew at the Kenyan coast for a shorter or longer trip (especially in Lamu).

Above: A reticulated giraffe. They are so common in the Kenyan national parks and sometimes you can encounter herds of even 10 animals strolling majestically on the plains. An impressive image.

white rhino, kenya

Art poster - View at

Above: The white rhino has been endangered in Kenya because of heavy poaching in the 1980s. But this has largely been put to an end by the infamous Richard Leakey, and these days some Kenyan parks have a growing rhino population again.
