Getting a Kenyan Visa: Lions and Leopards and Cheetahs, Oh My!

by David Pacella | November 20th, 2009

For pretty much all  of human history, the big cats have been above us in the food chain, and were both feared and revered.  Now, even though humans have climbed to the top of the food chain, big cats continue to be a source of fascination.

If you want to see them up close, outside of a zoo, one of the best places in the world to do so is Kora National Park in Kenya. The park is home to an amazing variety of wild cats, including lions, cheetahs, leopards, caracals, servals and African wildcats.

The park also has other African wildlife, including hyenas, antelopes, elephants and hippos.

Kora National Park is also the final resting place of George Adamson, the conservationist who raised the lion cub in “Born Free.”
