Detailed Trip Description
It could be argued that "safari" was born in Kenya, with the primal drama of lion, leopard and cheetah hungrily following a sea of wildebeest so immense, at times it seems the whole earth itself is moving. Africa's single most famous safari draw, the Annual Great Migration occurs every July and October as animals travel between Tanzania's Serengeti National Park and Kenya's Masai Mara Game Reserve. The park takes its name from famous nomadic Maasai people, who wander as freely across the Kenya-Tanzania border as their cattle. January- February is regarded as dry, hot period and the best time to visit Mombasa Beach Resorts.There is more to Kenya than safari, though: from coral reefs and white sand beaches to tea plantations,rich culture, friendly smiling people, plus a tourism infrastructure that can get you to all of them, Welcome to Kenya!

African hunting dogs are found in grasslands, savannahs and open woodlands. They are widely distributed across the African plains and are not found in jungle areas. Their habitat also includes semi-desert to mountainous areas south of the Sahara Desert in Africa.
The African hunting dogs' scientific name, Lycaon pictus, reflects the color of their pelage. Lycaon pictus literally means "painted or ornate wolf." The fur appears to be painted with brown, red, black, yellow and white areas. The pattern of colors is different on each animals coat, much like the stripes of zebras. The fur of L. pictus is short, with little or no underfur, and the blackish skin is sometimes visible where fur is sparse. Typically there is dark fur on the head and a white tip on the end of their bushy tail. They have large, rounded ears, a thin body, and long, muscular legs with four toes on each foot. The body length of Lycaon pictus is between 75 and 110 cm, the tail is between 30 and 40 cm long, and they range in weight from 18 to 36 kg. Males and females tend to be approximately the same size.

At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist. Just outside the crater’s ridge, tall Masaai herd their cattle and goats over green pastures through the highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have for centuries.
