With a size of more than 582 thousand sq km, Kenya has almost 70 protected areas representing 8% of the total area of the country. When we hear the word Safari without a doubt one of the first names that we think is this country, and it is that Kenya is like a paradise garden of torrid and endless savannahs. Think of Kenya is like thinking about the cradle of safaris. It has been inspiration for hundreds of films like Mogambo or Hatari. Here we can find the most famous wildlife reserve of the continent, the Masai Mara, where Safari reaches such dimension that, likely, anywhere else in Africa can offer.
