2013 - Kenya - There are a large number of national parks in Kenya, which represent an important pillar for tourism. The largest national park is the Tsavo National Park, which is divided into Tsavo East and Tsavo West. The well-known Masai Mara, the northern foothills of the Serengeti, is formally not a national park, but a nature reserve. Especially in the months of July and August you will find a great abundance of animals here, due to the herd migrations of wildebeest, zebras, antelopes, buffalos and impalas. Other important national parks are Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Meru. Also worth seeing is the national park in Nairobi, a smaller animal-rich reserve in the middle of the capital. Nowhere else can you see giraffes and zebras so close to a city skyline.
