Serengeti the place to see big cats on Kenya holidays?
Tourists travelling to Africa and wanting to see big cats could try the Serengeti region, as it is home to a variety of species, including lions and cheetahs.
People looking to go on a Kenya safari with the specific purpose of seeing such animals could find the area to be the best place to go. It is a vast location in which the plains stretch down to Tanzania and touch upon Lake Victoria.
Cheetahs could be the most exciting creatures to see as they can run up to 110 kph in order to catch their prey, usually a gazelle. In particular, their distinctive pattern of black spots and dark facial prints on their face make them stand out.
However, because they mostly live alone, it could make it a rewarding experience if several are seen during the visit.
At the opposite end of the spectrum are the sociable lions. They usually spend the daytime resting but if visitors wish to view them in action, they would be advised to venture out later on as that is when they hunt.
