Safari Kenya - TAITA

Updated: 5 days ago




Never in my head I thought I will be experiencing this honour of coming to place like I am right now . It only proves that in life ? The good energy circulates and the more you give , the more you receive in one way or another .


Game Drive is an amazing experience of freedom. The nature created the rules not the human. You can drive for hours and not see anything ( its a rain season now so most of the animals migrated to the dry areas ). And at the point you feeling like you want to give up some magic will happen and you will see a Cheetah taking care of their babies, or a lioness who just woke up from the afternoon nap.


Learning about the animals is very important too. Here are some fun facts I have learned on this trip :


  1. Common plain zebras have tails around half a metre in length (18 inches). Zebra crossings (pedestrian crossings) are named after the black and white stripes of zebras. Zebras run from side to side to being chased by a predator. Zebras have excellent eyesight and hearing. The are actually black with white stripes :)

  2. Giraffes only need 5 to 30 minutes of sleep in a 24-hour period! They often achieve that in quick naps that may last only a minute or two at a time. The giraffe calf can stand up and walk after about an hour and within a week, it starts to sample vegetation.

  3. Adult male elephants live a predominantly nomadic and solitary life. When a male elephant (bull) reaches puberty, around 12 to 15 years of age, he will gradually become more independent of his family until he breaks away completely, to either roam alone or find a loosely-knit group of male elephants to join

  4. Many wildlife enthusiasts have heard of the “Big Five”, but did you know Africa also has a group of animals known as the “Little Five”? The members bear the names of their much more impressive namesakes: the rhino beetle, buffalo weaver, ant lion, leopard tortoise and elephant shrew.

  5. Most lions are not afraid of campfires and will walk around them to see what's going on. ... If you have something in your hand then throw it at the lion. Even if the lion charges you do not run. Believe me this can be extremely intimidating.

  6. SIMBA - means lion in swahili , RAFIKI - friend.

I hope you enjoy the few fun facts and those few images taken on this short trip :)

PS. If you are wandering where is an image of just a rock ? That's a lion's rock where Simba was presented to the rest of the animals :
