who’s going

Experience Kenya’s stunning wildlife, nature and culture in this during this 4-day safari. First, you will visit Nakuru National Park:

Nakuru is home to more than 450 bird species, where you can easily locate and identify kingfishers, long-crested eagles, goliath herons and most especially famed pink flamingos. Beyond the lake, the park encompasses neighboring wilderness, where you can see sightings of black and white rhinos and Rothschild’s giraffes. They are joined by zebras, buffalos, warthogs, waterbucks, as well as, stalking predators such as leopards and spotted hyenas. Into the green forests are gazelles, impalas and Colobus monkeys. A park which has much to offer for its comparable size.

At least we will visit Masai Mara. Where is a large number of other plains game include zebras, different species of antelopes, giraffes, and warthog, which are residents of the are all year round. The Mara is a perfect kingdom for the lions but there are also smaller predators such as cheetahs, hyenas, and jackals that roam the Mara area.

Another natural inhabitant is, of course, the Masai people. A semi-nomadic ethnic group known as fierce warriors and have largely remained very independent, staying strong to their traditional values and lifestyle. The Masai never hunt, but live peacefully alongside the wildlife in harmony, this co-existence makes the Masai Mara one of the world’s most interesting and unique wilderness regions.

CHECKLIST


Here are some of our recommendations to you for getting through a safari:

  • A wide-brimmed hat to shade you from the sun, this should have string/straps if standing in the van or jeep as it could be blown off.
  •  A good pair of sunglasses as you are on the equator where the sun is very strong. Prescription sun spectacles are not recommended as may scratch or fall off the vehicles.
  •  Bottle’s or jugs of water to keep you hydrated. Spending a lot of time in the sun, even when wearing hats and sunglasses will dehydrate you in most cases

  • Shorts and t-shirts or light trousers for the daytime.
