Mount Kenya & Central Highlands: game viewing away from the crowds

Written by  Thursday, 10 July 2014 08:06 Published in Kenya
While there's no doubting the allure of the Masai Mara, visitors to Kenya who want less crowded safari destinations should head for the rugged Central Highlands. Africa's second highest peak, the 5200m Mount Kenya looms over much of the region which includes great wildlife destinations such as family-friendly and multi-activity Meru National Park, the private Lewa Downs Conservancy in the foothills of Mt Kenya, the Mount Kenya National Park and the amazing forests of Aberdares National Park. If you're looking for a relaxed Mount Kenya safari, then any one of these parks fits the bill. Recently UNESCO has announced that the Mount Kenya-Lewa Wildlife Conservancy will be added as an extension to Mount Kenya National Park, enhancing the protection of the property as a World Heritage Site. haba and Samburu National Reserves lie to the north of the region where Kenya's savannah gives way to desert scrub and mountains. The scenery is dramatic, and besides a familiar cast of classic African animals you'll find species here that don't occur in Kenya's more popular parks, making it one of Kenya's most appealing places of interest.
