2018/2019 Safari to Laikipia Plateau
The second park you will visit during this 7 nights Laikipia Plateau private wildlife safari
Laikipia Plateau is the gateway to Kenya's northern territory.
Laikipia Plateau is not a national park or reserve, but never-the-less it has evolved into one of Kenya's most conservation success story.
One of the most serene area in Kenya, far removed from the beaten game track circuits.
Set amidst a spectacular scenery, life here is as it used to be hundred's of years ago where the nomadic life-style blends seamlessly with an abundance of free-roaming game.
The Laikipia Plateau comprises of privately owned farms and ranches in an area roughly half the size of Wales, and it's rapidly becoming a major tourist destination in the Northern circuit.
This area has one of the biggest and most diverse animal populations in Kenya. The Big Five, including black and white rhino, are all present, plus the wide-ranging wild dogs; there's even a chance of seeing the rare aquatic sitatunga antelope.
This is the only area within Kenya where you will find the rare Grevy's zebra, which is more narrowly striped than its southern cousin.
The natural habitats range from arid semi-desert, scrubland, and sprawling open plains in the north and south, to the thick forests of cedar and olive trees in the east. Two rivers, the Ewaso Ng'iro and Ewasa Narok, dominate the area.
Safari to Masai Mara Game Reserve Kenya.
The third park you will visit during this 8 days private Masai Mara safari in Kenya
Maasai Mara is globally famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs, and the annual migration of zebra, Thomson's gazelle, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti every year from July to October, known as the Great Migration.
Masai Mara Game Reserve ranks amongst the world's finest wildlife sanctuary with well over 450 species of animals having been sighted in this marvel of nature.
The endless plains of the Maasai Mara are the setting for the world's greatest wildlife spectacle - over 1.5 million animals, including the wildebeest and zebra migration.
They are in turn relentlessly tracked by Africa's great predators, including lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs, making for some of the most amazing hunting scenarios witnessed in the wild.
