Sure, you read nature magazines, and maybe you watch the shows on TV. But have you ever considered actually striking it out on an authentic African safari yourself? It’s closer – and more possible – than you’d think. Take our Kenya Wildlife Safari trip, for example – in only eight days, you’ll have multiple chances to capture the Big Five (with your camera, of course) while trekking the African bush in a 4x4. If you want an adventure to make your friends and family jealous, this is it.

Since it’s Kenya Week here on the Looptail, we wanted to showcase some of the animals you’ll see on a Kenya safari. Of course, we’d be here all day if we were to list off all the wildlife out there on the African plains, so here’s just a taste of what you might discover in Kenya:

This big guy is sleeping off a fresh meal in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Sweet dreams!

Kenya-Lion-580

Lion King? More like the Lion Queen!

Kenya-Masai-Mara-Cheetah-580

One of the speedier denizens of the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Kenya-Masai-Mara-Elephant-580

Elephants roaming the grasslands at Masai Mara.

Kenya-Safari-Zebra-580

Zebra herds in Amboseli National Park. Better run before our leopard friend from the first photo wakes up!

Please note that the contest is now closed.
