Great Migration

The Great Migration is one of the most spectacular natural events that can be witnessed in a life time. Millions of nomadic wildebeest migrate between the Masai Mara(Kenya) and the Serengeti National Park (Tanzania) along with thousands of zebras and antelopes. The sheer breathtaking size of this mass migrations has earned it a place as part of the wonders of the world.

This spectacle is at its peak, when large herds of wildebeest, zebras and antelope gather on the shores of the crocodile infested Mara River.
Getting ready to cross the river the herds grow more and more agitated, crocodiles move in place patiently hoping to have their fill while other carnivores (mainly big cats) stealthily wait on the other side for a meal opportunity. The atmosphere becomes filled with excitement and when the nerves become overwhelming, some wildebeest jump in the river in a seemingly suicidal act, thus triggering a mammalian avalanche pouring down into the Mara River, where they battle the river current and try to survive the crocodiles. At this point the laws of nature are at their height as prey comes face to face with predator, it’s survival for the fittest.

Rwanda - Volcanoes National Park

Rwanda GorillaThe Volcanoes National Park (Parc national des Volcans) is a 13,000-acre national park in North-western Rwanda. The Volcano National Park contains about 125 square kilometre rain forests and is home to Rwanda's Mountain Gorillas. Six extinct volcanoes named Muhavura, Mt. Gahinga, Karisimbi, Visoke, Mikeno and Sabyinyo are located at the backdrop of the park. The park was known for the scientific study of Diane Fossey, who was the first to study the behaviours of Mountain Gorillas in detail.

Uganda

[ Murchinson Falls - Bwindi National Park - Queen Elizabeth National Park/ Kibale Forest National Park - Lake Mburo National Park ]

Murchinson Falls

Murchinson fallsThe park is located in the Northwest of Uganda on the Northern tip of Lake Albert and can be easily reached by road from Kampala. With 3,840 square kilometres it is one of the largest national parks in Uganda. The Nile divides the park into two halves: Dense rainforest in the Southwest and rolling savannah in the Northwest. You will find everything you expect from your African safari in this national park: lions, leopards, buffalos, elephants, hippos, hyenas and many more. About 80 species of mammals and over 400 bird species live here in a breath-taking natural landscape.

The scenic highlight is represented by the Murchison Falls. The 50-meter-wide majestic White Nile squeezes through a narrow of only 6 meters and falls in several stages over 40 meters in depth on its way to the North. If you are adventurous enough, you can take a refreshing bath in a small pool above the waterfall.

Bwindi National Park

BwindiThe park is a "UNESCO World Heritage Site" because it has a unique natural wealth. The native name of the park, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, derived from its impenetrable dense shrub and bush vegetation. 160 tree species are found here, 10 of them are only found in Uganda. The Bwindi National Park is also rich in animal species (e.g. more than 120 mammals).

The park is known worldwide for gorilla tracking - more than half of the estimated 600 Mountain Gorillas in the world live here. Selected footpaths lead to the populations.

Queen Elizabeth National Park/ Kibale Forest National Park

Queen ElizabethThe Queen Elizabeth National Park is located in Western Uganda and is divided into two parts. Located between Lake Edward and Lake George you will find a Northern and a Southern part. The two regions are characterized by very different ecosystems. The dividing line is represented by the Kazinga Channel, which one should definitely visit by boat. Over 550 species of birds, hippos, buffalo and crocodiles can be observed from a boat at a close distance.
The park has the world's greatest biodiversity of all national parks, over 500 different bird species and 100 mammal species. About 20 species of carnivores such as lions, leopards, jackals, hyenas and others are found in the park.
At nearly 2,000 square kilometres grass savannahs alternate with open bush land, rivers, lakes and craters and wetlands.

The Kibale Forest covers over 766 square kilometres of protected rainforest, an excellent area for bird watching. The park is located in close proximity to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Nearly 80% of its surface is covered with indigenous evergreen humid forests and deciduous forests. Marshes and grasslands dominate the rest of the area. Due to the high percentage of forest areas, chimpanzee tracking in Kibale Forest has a high success rate.

Lake Mburo National Park

Lake MburoLake Mburo is the largest of the five lakes, which covers together with the surrounding wetlands, about 20% of the total 260 square kilometres park area; this composition makes the small park very interesting for bird watching.

The rest of the park area is an acacia savannah characterized mainly because it is very rich in Impala antelopes. The park is excellent to see the Eland, Africa's largest antelope. Large herds of buffalo and zebra as well as elephants and giraffes are often found in this park, but there are no lions (they are extinct). A boat trip on the lake and a walk through the wilderness, accompanied by a ranger is also interesting.

Zanzibar

ZanzibarZanzibar is an archipelago which lies off the Tanzanian coast. Zanzibar consists of the two main islands: Unguja and Pemba. The capital city is Zanzibar on Unguja, with the world-famous old town of "Stone Town". UNESCO declared the historic downtown a cultural relic: “an outstanding example of harmonious coexistence and the fusion of African, Arab and Indian cultures over the centuries”. The East Coast of Zanzibar is known for its endless, white and palm-fringed beaches. The East Coast is less developed than the equally beautiful North Coast but its more peaceful and relaxing. The beaches are very wide and flat sloping sea - at low tide it can be a relatively long way to the water. The North Coast is considerably much busier than the East Coast depending on the tide.

The Central Highlands

[Aberdares - Mount Kenya - Meru - Ol Pejeta]

Aberdares

The Aberdares Mountain Range is known for its dense forests and the wild-conspicuous wealth. The jungle-like vegetation provides perfect cover and camouflage for countless species.

Mount KenyaMount Kenya

The volcanic Mount Kenya is 5199 meters high - the second highest mountain in Africa. Its peak is entirely covered with ice and snows all year round. Mount Kenya offers a diverse spectrum especially for climbers and hikers, because the landscape around the mountain is tropical and dry. Elephants, buffalos, rhinos and many species of birds can be explored on a safari tour through the national park.

meruMeru

The Meru National Park fascinates by its stunning and unspoiled landscapes and the Tana River, Kenya’s largest river flows through this territory. The landscape consists mainly of high grass, doum palms and lush forests, surrounded by a hilly landscape and mountainous islands. A special characteristic that can be observed in this park is its biodiversity and various animals like lions, leopards and several species of antelope, giraffes, Grevy's zebras, crocodiles, hippos and water birds that find their habitat on the Tana River. Due to its remoteness Meru National Park is a tip for all safari enthusiasts.

Ol PejetaOl Pejeta

The private Ol Pejeta Reserve is located in the Laikipia Region, directly on the equator between Mount Kenya and the Aberdares. Situated within the Ol Pejeta Reserve are a chimpanzee sanctuary and an outdoor enclosure with about 45 hectares, which is separated into two parts by the Uaso Nyiro River. Amongst animals that can be seen are elephants, lions, leopards, buffaloes, rhinos, cheetahs, Grevy's zebra, Jackson's wildebeest and giraffes.
