Masai Mara, Kenya
With its rolling grasslands and wide-open savannah, the Masai Mara is the kind of unfettered, sprawling wilderness you will have discovered in Hollywood films set in Africa. Kenya’s finest reserve, the Masai Mara pulses with raw energy as an array of animals go about their daily lives.
At certain times of the year the famous Mara throbs to the beat of hundreds of thousands of hooves as the Great Wildebeest Migration takes place.
The reserve is unfenced and borders the Serengeti National Park. The two countries share the vast Serengeti plains, with the wildlife free to roam between Kenya and Tanzania in search of food.
Between July and October millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles cross into the Masai Mara from the Serengeti where they gather to graze and relax on the Mara’s plains, which – at about one third of the size of the enormous Serengeti National Park, is more manageable from a game viewing point of view. The Masai Mara’s open grasslands teem with wildlife in every direction.
The Masai Mara Reserve is rich in Africa’s biggest attractions – predators are abundant (lion sightings are incredibly common), and the Big Five are encountered around every corner.
The Mara is a permanent water source for the area’s wild inhabitants and so even when the very last wildebeest has tardily set off for the southern Serengeti, massive resident herds remain, offering visitors everything they could want to see on an African safari. A Masai Mara safari provides a year-round safari experience.
Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya:
This lake offers one of the world’s most spectacular wildlife sights: brilliant pink flamingos as far as the eye can see. When conditions are right, between one and two million lesser and greater flamingos feed around the shores of the shallow soda lake, together with tens of thousands of other birds. The best place to view the birds is from Baboon Cliff, where you get an excellent view over the lake, and the film of pink along its fringe.
It’s often combined with the other lakes – Naivasha for example – and wildlife areas such as the nearby Aberdare National Park.
Game spotting is also good. Lake Nakuru was declared a national park in 1961 and it now covers an area of some 180 km2.You will see warthog, waterbuck and large numbers of impala; slightly shyer residents include buffalo, Rothschild giraffe, eland, the occasional leopard and both black and white rhino. A herd of hippo have their territory in the northern part of the lake.
It is important to remember that there are times when the lake conditions change and the birds move on to other soda lakes.
Mount Kenya National Park, Kenya:
The Mount Kenya Park is the perfect place to relax after a dusty safari and get a different take on Kenya, particularly as it is located between some of Kenya’s top national parks: Aberdare, Samburu and Meru.
At a 5199m Mount Kenya dominates the Central Highlands. It is Africa’s second highest mountain, formed between two-and-three-million-years-ago by a series of volcanic eruptions. It probably once had a crater not unlike Mount Kilimanjaro’s, but erosion has sheared this down to a series of peaks.
The mountain above the forest line is a national park and it supports rainforest and dense thickets of bamboo, while higher up the flora changes dramatically: moorland and giant lobelia and heather. The forests are home to elephant, buffalo, monkeys, antelope and giant forest hog. The birdlife around the mountain is also prolific, ranging from huge eagles to multicoloured sunbirds.
There are three peaks, Point Lenana can be reached by most relatively fit people, but the other two are only accessible to mountaineers with technical skills. Mt Kenya is circled by a tar road which is in good condition and on this you will find the area’s main towns; Naro Moru, Nanyuki, Meru and Embu.
The mountain was first climbed in 1899 by Sir Halford McKinder and today is a popular peak to conquer. For the adventurous and outdoor types there are a variety of hiking and mountain climbing trails to choose from.
