Wildebeest Migration Tour

Annually more than 1.5 million wildebeests, zebras and gazelles migrate to Maasai Mara in search of greener pastures and areas to breed. This is one of the world’s top-ranked spectacles of nature. It is an iconic safari option for passionate travelers, nature and wildlife lovers and those who desire a little more from their African safari experience.

The wildebeest migration doesn’t have a start or endpoint, the migration moves rhythmically. The wildebeests move a vast distance from the Serengeti to the Maasai Mara. Their traverse in the Mara ecosystem is often faced with a myriad of threats from predators. It is approximated that the wildebeests cover a range of more than 3500 km on their long migratory cycle annually. This magnificent scenery of nature is an iconic safari option for avid travellers, nature and wildlife lovers and those who desire a little more from their African experience. Most people think that wildebeest migration only happens once in a year, but the migration happens all year round hence offering a unique wildlife experience. The exact timing of the massive wildebeest migration to the Maasai Mara is entirely dependent upon the rainfall patterns every year.

Ol Jogi Ranch Tour

Ol Jogi is a beautiful private game reserve situated in Laikipia, north of Nairobi. The ranch offers one of Kenya’s most incredible unique wildlife safari experiences. It is also ranked as East Africa’s top safari experience with outstanding wildlife in the reserve.

Ol Jogi ranch hosts the Big Five animals and various endangered species such as Eastern Black Rhinos and Africa wild dog. Visitors always find endless ways to explore, from more traditional safari activities such as guided hiking safaris and game watching drives to more exciting options such as fishing, walking with a troop of baboons, horse riding, and rock climbing and hiking the exceptional geology of the sandy erosion gully. Ol Jogi is a unique ranch because they have a sprawling manor house and satellite cottages.

Ol Jogi ranch has helicopters that offer a chance to tour Lake Turkana, or only for an aerial view of the spectacular landscapes, nature and wildlife of the conservancy. Ol Jogi has a strong conservation focus, and that allows guests to learn more about wildlife and nature. Visitors are taught how to track rhinos by the reserve rangers.

Amboseli Wildlife Tour

Amboseli National Park is situated in Loitoktok in the Rift Valley. It is one of Kenya’s most popular game reserve and offers excellent wildlife watching. The park is home to elephants, they are the common big safari animals spotted here. Black rhinos are almost extinct in the park. The plains are home to numerous large herbivores such as Maasai giraffe, Grants, wildebeest and impalas. They are usually viewed between the stands of acacia trees.

Amboseli’s National Park specialty is the elephants. Big herds are usually viewed roaming in the dusty plains both in the morning and evening.  Daytime the elephants typically spend their time partially submerged, scavenging in Ol Kenya swamp. The Amboseli elephants carry particularly new ivory and are very relaxed around cars, thus safe for game drive watching.

Amboseli can be toured at any time of the year. Still, the most exciting wildlife viewing is during the dry season between June and October when animals meet around the marshes and other anticipated water sources. When dry, animals cross the sandy plains, tend to blow a lot of dust, offering some excellent photo scenic when the light is low.

Tsavo and Tsavo West Adventure

Tsavo West and East is ranked as one of the largest wildlife conservation reserves on Earth and is among the most significant national reserves in Kenya. Tsavo has numerous wildlife, but due to the size of the park and its thick vegetation, wildlife watching can be hard sometimes. This is the reason why the park is less popular than the Maasai Mara and Amboseli. However, the park has one of the most extensive landscapes in East Africa. It is suitable for nature watching, with several volcanic craters and scenery hills. The park is situated in southeastern Kenya about 230 kilometers from Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.

Because of this achievement, it is one of the few reserves where tourists can be assured of watching a black rhino in its natural habitat.
