This is a Yellow Necked Spurfowl, which are are native to Kenya, and can be seen in many of the parks in Kenya. I think these birds are really pretty, and I like seeing all the different birdlife in Kenya. This was taken in Buffalo Springs National Reserve, which is a really nice park, located really close to Shaba National park. You can visit both in one day; do a morning game drive in one park and an afternoon game drive in the other.

This picture of a male lion was taken in Kenya at one of the parks that we visited. ┬áSeeing lions is just amazing, it’s an incredible experience really unlike anything else, and it’s never EVER something that gets less special. The nature of Kenya is beyond beautiful, and I have to say I think that the lions are an especially good example of this beauty.

Moving Spots

This photography was taken at Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. We went out on an early morning game drive and found this young cheetah along with it’s brother, just laying down along side the dirt road. We found these two not too far from where we were staying, a place called Fig Tree Camp. The camp is beautiful, the staff were really friendly, and the location was great; we saw tons of wildlife on the game drives that we took from this hotel, and the view from our tent cabin was really beautiful. Maasai Mara is my favorite park, and having stayed in more than one hotel there, i’d still recommend this one, it’s further from the gates of the park than some of the other hotels, but it’s well worth the drive.

Elephant in the Field

This photo was taken at Samburu National Reserve in Kenya. Samburu is a great reserve, it’s a different sort of environment than you get with some of the other parks. It’s really hot here, so the vegetation isn’t particularly green, which can make it a bit harder to spot certain animals. However, I highly recommend this reserve; we’ve been there twice and have had nothing but good luck, the animals are usually out in the mornings and evenings (when you normally go on game drives) because it can get so hot during the day.

Lion Up Close

A picture of a young(ish) male lion in Mount Meru National Park. We saw this big boy just lounging around near the side of one of the dirt roads while on safari in the park. This was our second time in Kenya, but our first time at Mount Meru. It was really beautiful, but we didn’t really see a massive amount of animal life; a large variety, but in smaller numbers than in some of the other parks. If you have a limited amount of time in Kenya I would recommend heading over to Masai Mara (my favorite park) it’s a bit more crowded, but there are a lot more animals there, and the larger number of people means more communication between the drivers, more communication between the drivers means that you get to see more. I’ll give more information about Kenya and our safari experience in the pictures that follow ­čÖé
