MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE: Maasai Mara safari
The Masai Mara is one of the best known and most popular reserves in the whole of Africa. At times and in certain places it can get a little overrun with tourist minibuses, but there is something so special about it that it tempts you back time and again.

Seasoned safari travellers, travel writers, documentary makers and researchers often admit that the Masai Mara is one of their favourite places. So why is that? Perhaps it is because of the 'big skies', the open savannahs, the romance of films like 'Out of Africa' and certainly because of the annual wildebeest migration, the density of game, the variety of birdlife and the chance of a hot air balloon ride.

Also because of the tall red-robed Masai people whose lifestyle is completely at odds with western practices, and from whom one learns to question certain western values.

A combination of all these things plus something to do with the spirit of the place - which is hard to put into words - is what attracts people to the Mara over and over.

The Masai Mara lies in the Great Rift Valley, which is a fault line some 3,500 miles (5,600km) long, from Ethiopia's Red Sea through Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and into Mozambique. Here the valley is wide and a towering escarpment can be seen in the hazy distance. Most of the game viewing activities occur on the valley floor, but some lodges conduct walking tours outside the park boundaries in the hills of the Oloololo Escarpment. The animals are also at liberty to move outside the park into huge areas known as 'dispersal areas'. There can be as much wildlife roaming outside the park as inside. Many Masai villages are located in the 'dispersal areas' and they have, over centuries, developed a synergetic relationship with the wildlife.

There are four main types of topography in the Mara: Ngama Hills to the east with sandy soil and leafy bushes liked by black rhino; Oloololo Escarpment forming the western boundary and rising to a magnificent plateau; Mara Triangle bordering the Mara River with lush grassland and acacia woodlands supporting masses of game especially migrating wildebeest; Central Plains forming the largest part of the reserve, with scattered bushes and boulders on rolling grasslands favoured by the plains game.

MASAI MARA ANIMALS & BIRDS:
In a short stay during the wildebeest migration you could see thousands of animals, at other times there are still hundreds. The plains are full of wildebeest, zebra, impala, topi, giraffe, Thomson's gazelle. Also regularly seen are leopards, lions, hyenas, cheetah, jackal and bat-eared foxes. Black rhino are a little shy and hard to spot but are often seen at a distance.

Hippos are abundant in the Mara River as are very large Nile crocodiles, who lay in wait for a meal as the wildebeest cross on their annual quest to find new pastures.

Every July (or sometimes August), the wildebeest travel over 600 miles (960km) from Tanzania's Serengeti plains, northwards to the Masai Mara and the Mara River is the final obstacle. In October or November, once they have feasted and the grass has all but gone, they turn around and go back the other way.

The Mara birds come in every size and colour including common but beautiful ones like the lilac breasted roller and plenty of large species like eagles, vultures and storks. There are 53 different birds of prey. Wildebeest Migration River Crossing.

MASAI MARA SEASONS:
Altitude is 4,875-7,052 feet (1,500-2,170 metres) above sea level, which yields a climate somewhat milder and damper than other regions. The daytime rarely exceeds 85F (30C) during the day and hardly ever drops below 60F (15C) at night.
Rainy Season: It rains in April and May and again November and this can cause some areas of the Mara to be inaccessible due to the sticky 'black cotton' mud.
Dry Season: July to October is dry and the grass is long and lush after the rains. This is a good time to come and see the huge herds of migratory herbivores.
Hottest time: The warmest time of year is December and January.
Coldest Time: June and July are the coldest months.

Elephant Pepper Camp

Kicheche
Kicheche is a classic bush camp hidden in a grove of wild olive and croton trees in the northern Koiyaki Lemek region of the Masai Mara Reserve.

Before and after dinner, guests can relax by the campfire or at the bush bar and listen to the magical sounds of the African bush.

Each tent has either 2 single or 1 king-sized bed with soft duvet bedding and, if required, an extra canvas cot bed can be provided for children.

The camp offers a pleasant variety of food that the chef prepares from his simple safari kitchen. Attached to the large dining tent is a comfortable lounge area, which houses the bar and a small library where you can relax and read about the fascinating wildlife you have seen. Every night the roaring campfire is lit by the mess tent, and you can relax under the expansive African night sky and let the sounds of the bush wash over you.

Little Governors Camp
Getting to the intimate and secluded Little Governors Camp is an adventure in itself. You first have to cross the Mara River by boat, then walk a short distance beneath the canopy of indegenous forest trees. The camp has just 17 tents tucked around a large watering hole where animal and bird life abound. From every verandah the view changes constantly as different animals come to drink or graze. Beyond, the changing colours of the Olololo Ridge melt into the vast African sky. All tents are comfortable, tastefully furnished and lit with gas and kerosene lanterns or candles providing the old safari feel. Dinner is served in a communal setting, allowing for ""the good natured rivalry of who saw what"". As dusk falls, the flickering lights in the forest coupled with the Camp's exquisite and romantic setting cast a spell over all who visit.

Main Governors Camp
Governors Camp nestles in the forest on a site which was originally reserved exclusively for the colonial Governors of Kenya a century ago. Half of its 38 tents look out over the rolling golden grasslands of Africa's great plains, with views of herds of elephants, zebras and gazelles; the rest line the banks of the Mara River. From their private verandas guests can enjoy the wild splendours of Africa with animals grazing nearby and cheetahs hunting and share the authentic traditional safari atmosphere and dramatic landscape that magnetised adventurers across the world.

Mara Bush Camp
This is an intimate semi-permanent camp discreetly ‘tucked away’ in a riverine forest on the banks of the seasonal Olare Orok River, in the path of the annual migration. It is a great choice is for the guest who appreciates simplicity and privacy away from mass tourism and wants to enjoy an authentic ‘safari’ experience rather than a large, crowded lodge with swimming pool & entertainment. Mara Bush Camp offers personalized services while providing all amenities to make guests feel at home.

All the river facing tents are equipped with comfortable four-poster bed with a mosquito net, en-suite flush toilet and sink unit in the bathroom with running water, hot bucket shower, clothes rack and storage chest, writing desk and verandah furniture. A fully equipped ‘Mess tent’ is situated close by, where all meals are served. Adjoining, is a luxurious and comfortable ‘Lounge Tent’, where you can meet up with other guests to exchange safari experiences and highlights of the day or read a book from the library. A ‘Sundowner cocktail’ will help you unwind in front of a cozy campfire under the African stars with all its sounds of nature. All meals at the camp are freshly prepared by the camp's head chef, offering buffet lunches and set a’ la carte dinners. Mara Bush Camp is not fenced, therefore Maasai warriors look out for your safety while you are sleeping.

Mara Safari Club
The Mara Safari Club is set by the Mara River at the foot of the Aitong Hills bordering the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Surrounded on three sides by the Mara River, all forty tents have their own private river frontage with a viewing deck from where guests can enjoy watching hippos climb the banks as well as listen to them as "talk" to each other. Occasionally elephants wander past to drink the water and during the migration period large herds of wildebeest can be sometimes observed attempting to cross the river nearby. The main building with lounge, bar and dining room also provides a superb vantage point to view the resident hippos and the amazing riverine birdlife.

Mara Serena
The Mara Serena Safari Lodge commands a prime location for the annual migration of the wildebeest and zebra. It is located high on hill above the Mara River with spectacular 360 degrees view of of the Mara Plains. The lodge's architectural style is inspired by the traditional Maasai cultural motif of a cluster of domed, mud-coloured huts encircled by a “Boma” of brushwood and complimented by ethnic decor which features a unique selection of Maasai art creating the look and feel of a traditional bush encampment. The relatively small rooms each have their own balcony and splendid views of the sweeping grasslands teeming with wildlife. The lodge has a fantastic pool with equally breathtaking views of the entire Mara Game Reserve.

Mara Siria Camp
Mara Siria Camp has a great location on the Siria Escarpment with dramatic views over the Masai Mara plains the the Mara River. The breakfast spot right on the ridgeline has been chosen in a way that the morning omelette is likely to get cold as guests will forget trivialities such the food while they admire the ""world"" below.

Eight spacious and comfortable tents with en-suite bathroom and their own private veranda are spread across the escarpment line. The camp is solar powered and well integrated into the existing landscape without harming the beauty of the natural wilderness.
The camp's location just outside the reserve boundary opens up the opportunity for bush walks with local Maasai naturalists, either to a spectacular sundowner point or down to the Mara River and Hippopool."

Naibor Camp
With its combination of contemporary style, comfort and muted bush colours, Naibor Camp comes close to what might be called a designer camp. The seven spacious tents with king-size beds of fig-wood and large sofas with soft cushions have an aura of rustic simplicity mixed with elegance and pose a challenge even to the most extreme wildlife enthusiast as they are a difficult-to-escape temptation to just relax. The main 'mess' tent overlooking the Talek River and beyond has cushions, rugs and sofas making it an ideal venue for relaxation and drinks before dinner. The camp is set in a grove of riverine forest on the banks of the Talek River within the Masai Mara Game Reserve in southern Kenya. From this strategic location close to all the major Mara River crossing points, guests can view the wildebeest migration as well as a wide array of game all year round. Game viewing can also be done on foot or on mountain bikes outside the reserve.

Offbeat Mara Camp
Offbeat Mara Camp is set away from other lodges north of the Masai Mara Game Reserve on the Olare Orok group ranch on the banks of a small seasonal river. In the cosy lounge guests can read, relax or just savour the sights and sounds of nature in this wild and serene setting. Accommodation is offered in seven solar lit tents with ensuite bucket showers, flush toilets, wash basins and huge cedar beds. While the camp does not offer the same breathtaking views as other camps, it has excellent service, very knowledgeable guides and a very personal and homely ambiance as it is personally hosted by the owner, Piers Winkworth who works closely with the local Maasai community.

Porini Lion Camp
Porini Lion Camp is located in the private Olare Orok game conservancy which borders the Masai Mara Game Reserve and is home to an abundance of animals including the Big Cats for which the Mara is famous. The small, intimate tented Camp is situated along the banks of the Ntiakatiak River, a seasonal river with some permanent hippo pools near the camp. With 10 luxury guest tents the camp is very exclusive and gives guests a real bush experience. The tents are very spacious and have private verandahs along the length of the tent, providing a secluded and private 'space' for you to relax and enjoy the beauty of this African wilderness.

Rekero Tented Camp
Rekero Tented Camp is a secluded haven of peace and tranquillity, providing a friendly welcome and an impressively personal service. Gerard and Rainee Beaton and Jackson Ole Looseyia, a Maasai from the local area and their safari crew cater for your needs. The standard of guiding is exceptional, as the professional Maasai safari guides seek isolated spots for game drives and ensure that guests experience wildlife without another soul to be seen. The camp’s wild riverside setting is at the heart of the Masai Mara National Reserve. Being so close to both the Mara and Talek rivers, the camp provides guests with an ideal opportunity to view the annual migration crossings from the comfort of their armchair. Each of the seven tents has an uninterrupted view of the Talek riverbank, ensuite bathrooms with bucket showers and flush toilets and has small and tasteful finishing touches such as flowers, glass bottles for water and magazines. Dining is generally open air and in dinner party style with guests exchanging experiences and sights over a glass of wine. The chefs produce appetising 'farmhouse' meals while special dietary requirements can be catered for. The camp is unfenced meaning that during the night elephants, hippos and even leopards are known to wander amongst the tents.

Richard’s Camp
The Royal Mara is located on the Mara River in Western Koyiaki Conservation Area, near the Koyiaki-Kichwa Migration River Crossing 15 miles from the other well known crossing point at Mara Serena. All six luxury guest suites are built on raised wooden decks with mahogany floors, hand-carved furniture and private balconies overlooking the Mara River and her resident hippos. Several lion prides are within proximity of the lodge and in contrast to the National Reserve area, the Koyiaki conservation area allows game walks and night game drives enabling the property to offer guests a more fulfilling safari experience.

Sala's Camp
Sala’s Camp is located on the convergence of two rivers close to the Tanzanian border. This secluded spot offers tranquillity and tremendous views along the Sand River towards the Serengeti. The camp is owner hosted and offers a very homely ambiance, impeccable service and fantastic food. During the Great Wildebeest Migration between July and October, Sala’s Camp is ideally located since many of the animals move back and forth from the Serengeti in search of lush grasslands in the Mara. The views from the camp during this time is exceptional as the migrating wildebeest and zebra pass just opposite the camp on the other side of the Sand River. The mess tent extends onto an inviting 'lounging' area with an Arabian feel which is ideal for reading, relaxing and unwinding while enjoying the views. Accommodation is in seven spacious tents which have ensuite bathrooms with flush toilets and bucket showers. As an alternative to game drives, the more active guests can join in the daily afternoon volleyball match with the camp staff in the Sand River's dry bed - a more pristine and wild setting for a volleyball game is simply unimaginable.


Saruni Camp
Saruni is a deluxe and intimate lodge set in a private conservation area outside the Masai Mara National Reserve. With accomodation for only 12 guests in six spectacular cottages, it offers an experience which combines the elegance and safety of a permanent accommodation with the thrill of sleeping in close contact with nature and Saruni's equally luxurious fly camp Campi ya Tembo will bring you even closer to nature. The rooms are furnished with colonial antiques, Persian carpets and African art and the atmosphere at the camp is informal but elegant. Riccardo Origgio, owner and host of Saruni, is a fascinating person to exchange views of the world with and will make you feel like you are at home. A sundowner on the top of a windy hill while watching the brilliant hues of sunset and overlooking the entire Masai Mara provides you with divine memories. Or how about a candlelit dinner in the privacy of your verandah as a full moon lends a soft glow to the ‘cough cough’ of a leopard barely 10 feet away? Truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Serian Camp
Serian is one of the few real bush homes in the Masai Mara, with a fantastic location blending into the surrounding vegetation in a secluded valley overlooking the Mara River. The eight marquee tents are set in the shade of large trees and are furnished in rich warm textures mixed with natural hard woods. Comfortable colonial style furnishing with a little eastern “spice”. They are constructed of canvas and supported by hardwood poles with the interior walls and ceilings made from Kenyan canvas. The verandah is furnished with two comfortable chairs and a small table for drinks. The “bedroom” area is fitted with a king-size bed flanked by twin writing desks. The “bathroom” area includes a shower, soaking tub and separate toilet. The dressing area contains the cupboards with hanging space and twin basins. Hanging swathes of cotton and canvas walls provide complete privacy. Furniture is minimal and unobtrusive, mimicking the traditional safari camps of an earlier time. The experience at Serian is focused on viewing wildlife. In addition to game drives in the Masai Mara, the highly qualified guides of the camp lead game walks in the various group ranches bordering the Masai Mara. Enjoy intimate outdoor dining after an adventurous day in this amazing part of Africa.

Tipilikwani Camp
Tipilikwani Camp is set on the banks of the Talak river, right on the border to the Masia Game Reserve. The twenty tents are mounted on raised wooden decked platforms, all furnished in rustic African style. All tents are en-suite with hot and cold powered showers and all the amenities that one would expect of five star luxury accommodation. All the tents face the river and look onto the savanna expanses of the Mara allowing for beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Included in the twenty tents are two family tents each comprising of two interconnecting en-suite tents, sharing a beautiful deck area. The size of the rooms allows for the twin tents to comprise of two queen size beds and the double rooms, a king size bed and divan. All rooms can also easily accommodate another single bed and baby cot. The lounge and dining areas are built structures with views of the Savanna plains and sit right above the Talak river. They have huge couches surrounding the bar area and tranquil lighting setting the ambiance. Night game drives, visits to Masai village and guided nature and bird walks are the activities which the camp can offer. The menu overseen by the gourmet chef offers a la carte menus where guests will indulge in an active breakfast, a three lunch and a five course dinner.
 
 
 
 

Easily known as the "Coca-Cola route", Marangu is by far the most popular route to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This could partly be as a result of the fact that the Marangu is the least expensive route, but more so, perhaps the fact that it is possible to do the Marangu route in 6 days, thereby getting to the summit one day earlier than on the Machame route. It is the easiest route to Kilimanjaro Uhuru Peak but least scenic. More details....

Sometimes called the Whisky Route. This is a popular route up steep paths through magnificent forests to gain a ridge leading through the moorland zones to the Shira Plateau. It then traverses beneath the glaciated precipices of the Southern Ice fields to join the Barafu Route to the summit. This is probably the most beautiful route up Kilimanjaro. All your group Mount Kilimanjaro equipment and supplies are portered and a cook prepares all your meals. Where accommodation on the Marangu route is in huts, the Machame route offers strictly tents only. This makes Machame route better suited to the slightly more adventurous hiker, rewarding him/her with a scenic splendor such as not seen on the Marangu route. The Machame route is normally completed in a minimum of 6 days. More details....

Rongai Route: This remote and less frequently used route is the second easiest route to Kilimanjaro. The approach to the mountain is from the less-forested north side and the descent is by the Marangu Route. There are several variations, the one described below is a longer route taking in Mawenzi Tarn. We offer this Rongai Route climb for both groups; joining group existing Kilimanjaro climb or private Kilimanjaro treks for 2009 and 2010. Read more......

 

The Umbwe route is one of the shortest routes to the Southern Glaciers and the Western Breach. It is probably the most scenic, non-technical route on Kilimanjaro. It is quite taxing, primarily due to the relatively fast ascent to higher altitude, but the rewards are plentiful. Read more..

 
Lemosho Route This is the longest and most remote route to Kilimanjaro. After beautiful forests and moorlands it crosses the Shira Plateau to meet up with the Machame Route. Groups may be accompanied on the first day by an armed ranger as the forests around the Lemosho Glades are rich in buffalo, elephant and other game. Read more...........

At 5,199 m, Mount Kenya is the second highest peak in Africa. It is an ancient extinct volcano, during whose period of activity (3.1–2.6 million years ago) it is thought to have risen to 6,500 m. Mount Kenya is one of the most impressive landscapes in East Africa. There are three main climbing routes, which penetrate the forest and the moorland - Naromoru, Sirimon and Chogoria.

Kilimanjaro Climb Expedition tips and advice to follow:
>Find a good tour operator: You can only climb Kilimanjaro with an organized trek and along established routes, so you have to go with an expert operator. The Kilimanjaro climbing operators vary from excellent to downright negligent so be selective and try not to be too cheap if you want to have the most enjoyable climb experience. you can count on Kilimanjaroclimbexpedition.com

>Book in advance: If you intend to climb Kilimanjaro, be sure to book in advance. This will enable you to go in high season, which is January-March and September-October. High Season is a good time to go simply because the weather condition is safest for Kilimanjaro climbing.

>Get fit & prepare well: Break in your hiking boots and walk the dog; climb stairs; hike some hills with a pack on. Walking is the best way to prepare yourself for the long hike up Kilimanjaro to ensure you have right fitness. You need to build up stamina. It's a good idea to get a basic medical check-up before you go. You don't want to be dealing with an ingrown toenail or worse at 18,000 feet. Travel insurance that includes medical is also a must.

>Pack well:  Pack light but make sure you have everything you need to deal with altitude and variation in temperatures. Don't worry about carrying it yourself since a porter/s will take up to 30lbs (15kg) of your personal gear in a duffel bag. You can rent some equipment and clothing locally but you may end up with teeny sleeping bags and a fraying pink jacket. See our recommended climb checklist.

>Choose your convenient route: Make sure your hike is at least 6-7 days to provide the much needed Kilimanjaro commodity, acclimatization if you want to have maximum success. Any shorter and you will not be properly acclimatized. Routes vary in degree of difficulty, traffic and scenic beauty. The least difficult routes are Marangu and Rongai; the more difficult routes are Machame, Umbwe and Lemosho. The longer routes may have more difficult hiking but you'll be more acclimatized and your chances of reaching the summit are therefore higher. The longer western routes also allow you to start your summit day at a more reasonable hour. For details on each route see route descriptions.

>Dealing with altitude: Pace yourself; you will hear the Swahili phrase "pole pole" - slowly slowly, heed it well. Drink lots of water about 4-5 liters a day is recommended. Luckily the mountain streams after the first day are good to drink and naturally cooled. Walk high and sleep low. Take a walk to a higher elevation during the day and come back down to sleep. Consult a doctor before you go and get some medication to prevent altitude sickness. Also make sure your guides are carrying the proper medical equipment such as oxygen, radios and a recompression bag to deal with altitude sickness if it arises.

>Reaching the summit: The hardest part of the trek. Pace yourself, be determined, and you will reach the Uhuru peak. The final ascent is usually timed so you can watch the sunrise over the crater and distant plains. Enjoy the view take a few photos and get back down before you get too affected by the high altitude. Take a well earned nap.
 
Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania stands at 19,340 feet (5895 m) and is Africa's tallest mountain. The attraction of hiking up Mount Kilimanjaro is that it's not a technical climb so no equipment such as oxygen and ropes are necessary. But it's no walk in the park. As you you'll see from the images below, trekkers make their way through 5 climatic zones before reaching the summit. Weather changes from moment to moment and the high altitude wreaks havoc on the body and mind...read more.

East Africa travel destinations that we include in our catalogue include Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. East Africa is home to the safari, since this is where the African savannah is at its best and the plains are filled with wildlife. Hikers also come to East Africa to enjoy the mountains, including Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Mount Kenya, Mount Longonot and Mount Meru. The East African coastline has some of the best beaches in the world, including the famous spice island of Zanzibar.
 
Kenya Safari:
Kenya is the original safari country where the 'safari' (Swahili for travel) begun. In Kenya, you can mix the idyllic experience of a tropical beach vacation on the warm Indian Ocean with an East African wild animal safari expedition. Combining the two makes for a unique holiday. Part of your vacation is filled with excitement as you observe African wildlife at close quarters, while part is spent relaxing and soaking up the sun on a sandy beach.

A beach and safari break in Kenya is an exotic getaway from the daily routines of city life. It also makes for the ideal honeymoon for newly weds, with time to relax as well as a touch of adventure.

East Africa, including Kenya, does not yet have a high profile as a holiday destination in America, but is growing in reputation as a unique vacation experience. Europeans, and the British in particular, have less distance to travel to Africa, and have been been the mainstay of Kenyan tourism, attracted by the unique mix of the tropical beach and African safari vacation. Luxury vacations have become more affordable as European currencies have strengthened, prompting investment in Kenyan tourist facilities.
 
Tanzania Safari:
Safari in Tanzania is a worth undertaking. We are the original safari company offering quality Tanzania safaris to Ngorongoro Crater, animal migration tours in Serengeti, Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania  honeymoon vacations in Zanzibar Island, family holidays in spice island and luxury beach resorts of pemba island. A variety of accommodation in Tanzania is offered from lodge, hotels and safari tented camps...Read more.
 
The best time to go for an African safari is when the animals are easy to find and in dense numbers. Deciding when to go on safari depends on what country you would like to visit and when you are able to plan your trip. Seasons differ in East Africa so you can really plan a great safari for almost every month of the year, if you are flexible about where you want to go to.....:
 
Kenya:
The best time to go on safari in Kenya and experience a huge density and diversity of wildlife is when the annual migration of millions of wildebeest, zebra and gnu's descend on the Mara plains with predators close behind. The best time to see this wildlife spectacle is from July to October. Other parks in Kenya are also excellent and the best time to visit these would be during the dry seasons - January through March and July through October.

With the scarcity of water during the dry seasons, the animals tend to gather in more concentrated numbers around permanent water holes, rivers and lakes, so they are easier to find. The vegetation is also less lush which simply means that viewing animals from a distance is easier.

Tanzania:
If you want to see the Great Migration unfold, head to Tanzania's northern parks; the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. The best time to witness the annual migration is probably February - March when the wildebeest and zebra have their young. Not only can you enjoy seeing baby animals, but the predators are at the highest number too. Because the herds also concentrate in the south of the Serengeti, it's easy to plan your wildlife viewing in that area and find a safari company that offers lodging there.

June to November is Tanzania's dry season and is the best time to visit all the parks (and you can always hop over to Kenya's Masai Mara to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration during this time). Tanzania's Southern Parks are perfect to visit during this time since the animals tend to congregate around permanent water and it isn't so hot and humid.

All of Tanzania's parks suffer from the rains which generally fall from March to May in the North, and from November to May in the South and West. Roads get washed out and given the sheer size of Tanzania's parks, the animals tend to spread out, and this makes wildlife viewing less satisfying (if you're looking for sheer numbers of animals).

December through March can get quite hot and humid, especially in Western and Southern Tanzania which makes it a little uncomfortable to spend a lot of time in the bush.

If you want to add a hike up Mount Kilimanjaro to your safari, the best time to hike is January - March and September - October.

Masai Mara - Serengeti wildebeest migration:
Wildebeest migration to and back from Serengeti into the Maasai Mara is the single most popular wildlife spectacle in Kenya. The wildebeest migration is such a phenomenon it involves movement of over 1 million animals crossing plains and rivers in the Mara migration. River crossings are the most spectacular where the wildebeest of Mara jump into rivers full of crocodiles and surging currents. The wildebeest is feted as the clown of the Savannah. Also known as a gnu, the animal has a structure resembling a young horse with a heavily built frontal shoulders and chest and a slender posterior. Its legs are so slender it’s intriguing how it supports the proportionately larger body frame. The ‘clown’ title results from its unusual behavior considered to other bovids, for example a gnu herd will usually scatter in different directions when attacked by a lion.
 
 
Lamu Town began life as a 14th century Swahili settlement. But the island has seen many visitors and influences, including Portuguese explorers, Turkish traders and the Omani Arabs. Despite all these influences, Lamu developed its own particular culture which has ultimately endured. The island is a beautiful place of rolling dunes and endless beaches, where tiny villages nestle among coconut and mango plantations and lateen sailed dhows ply the waters. Dense mangrove forests fringe the mainland and the inland sides of the island. The beach on Lamu Island is 12km of empty sands backing on to an ocean protected by a reef...Read more..
 
 
Mount Kenya: Mount Kenya National Park
Mount Kenya plays a crucial role in the life of the country being Kenya's single most important permanent watershed and her largest forest reserve. The fertile soils of its lower slopes also sustain the growth of the nation's richest farmlands whilst much of its vegetation is globally unique. In recent years, however, the Mountain has suffered greatly from the adverse effects of deforestation, resulting in large tracts of its lower slopes being entirely denuded of trees and occupied by squatters. And, although much of the vast forest cover remains intact, the growing demand for timber (Kenya's staple construction and fuel source) threatens to lead to even more serious deforestation and subsequent soil erosion.....Read more...

Shaba is a relatively small National Park being a little over 239 sq. kms, and it is only 70 kms north of Mount Kenya, at an altitude varying between 700-1500metres.

Visitors go to Parks to see wildlife, and the Shaba Game is outstanding. You have a very good chance of seeing Giraffe, Cheetah, leopard, and lion. You can add to this gazelle, oryx, zebra, and Gerenuk, but of course it is the predators that are most sought after....Read more..
