mt-kenya-mountain-climbingOne strange fact about Mount Kenya is that the sun sets and rises at the same time every day, with both the day and night lasting 12 hours. Sunrise is usually about 5:30 in the morning and sunset is about 5:30 in the evening. In fact, there is only 1-minute difference between the shortest and longest days in the year. This is due to it being situated so close the equator.

Maasai Mara National Reserve

As far as the eye can see the landscape is vast, exactly as one would imagine to find the much famed African plains of the Masai Mara with its scatterings of umbrella like acacia trees dotting the land. The word Mara literally means ‘spotted’ and this is where it gets its name, as well as the color red of the earth that pushes through the green grass.

The Masai Mara National Park, or the Mara, as it is fondly known, is situated in south-west Kenya and is undeniably one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves, linking to neighboring Tanzania’s Serengeti. Named in honour of the Masai people whose ancestral habitat it is, this is the site of the annual wildebeest migration and throughout the year holds a rich residential population of Masai lion, leopards, cheetah, zebra and Thomson’s gazelle.


The Kenya Lake System is composed of three alkaline lakes; Lake Bogoria, Lake Nakuru, and Lake Elementaita. The property is home to 13 globally threatened bird species and some of the highest bird diversities in the world. It is the single most important foraging site for the lesser flamingo anywhere, for most of the year, up to 4 million lesser flamingos move between the three shallow lakes in an outstanding wildlife spectacle. It’s also major nesting and breeding ground for great white pelicans. The property features sizeable mammal populations, including black rhino, Rothschild's giraffe, greater kudu, lion, cheetah and wild dogs. Surrounded by hot springs, geysers and the steep escarpment of the Rift Valley with its volcanic outcrops, the natural setting of the lakes provides an exceptional experience of nature. Baringo and Naivasha are the only freshwater shallows in the Kenyan Rift; the large fresh water body is a shelter for more than 400 bird species that give the area its main attraction.


Kenya's largest park, Tsavo, is sliced in two; Tsavo West and Tsavo East. Tsavo East is the larger of the two parks, covering nearly 12,000 sq. km of harsh, rugged terrain. Considerably flatter, more arid, and a good deal bushier than neighboring Tsavo West, it's also the less-visited park. Its vast expanses of thorn brush scrubland.
