The Lion: One of the animals you must see on a Ugandan Safari

Adventure safaris into African wilderness get you to a land extravagantly blessed with natural treasures with lots of mammals, insects, birds, reptiles, and others roaming all types of evergreen vegetation. To most travelers, a wildlife safari into any wilderness is almost incomplete till you are face to face with the King of the jungle; the Lion. Looking at the giant males with their thick mane and other adult males, females, juveniles and infants being submissive to him is one of the most humbling experiences. He is such a lazy boss whose mind is preoccupied with mating with the females, snoozing and idling about as the females and juveniles do the real hunting of the prey. The irony of it all is that once the prey is slain and ready for serving, the big boss mysteriously appears and is always the first on the table to take his huge share. The rest of the pride; infants inclusive, join in when he is almost satisfied and his hunger needs taken care of. Such a selfish fellow!

In Ishasha; a southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park; Uganda there is a species Lions very obsessed with climbing fig trees that attract a big share of tourists . There seem to be no specific reasons for climbing trees but speculation rotates around getting on a raised elevation to scan for easy target prey grazing in grassland to pounce on with ease, escaping from irritating swarms of flies attracted by foul smell caused by feeding on mammal flesh and blood or escaping from scathing hot sun to have another qualitative sleep. Why they specifically prefer a species of a certain fig tree could be debate for another day. What however holds true is that a pride of lions atop a tree for whatever reasons is sight to behold and one of the most amazing sceneries Africa as a continent offers.

Kenya Wildlife National Park Rules

Kenya Wildlife National Parks Rules

Below are some of the Check out Kenya Wildlife National Park Rules that need to be followed

Wildlife Code
• Respect the privacy of the wildlife, this is their habitat.
• Beware of the animals, they are wild and can be unpredictable.
• Don’t crowd the animals or make sudden noises or movements.
• Don’t feed the animals, it upsets their diet and leads to human dependence.
• Keep quiet, noise disturbs the wildlife and may antagonize your fellow visitors.
• Stay in your vehicle at all times, except at designated picnic or walking areas.
• Keep below the maximum speed limit (40 kph/25 mph).
• Never drive off-road, this severely damages the habitat.
• When viewing wildlife keep to a minimum distance of 20 meters and pull to the side of the road so as to allow others to pass.
• Leave no litter and never leave fires unattended or discard burning objects.
• Respect the cultural heritage of Kenya, never take pictures of the local people or their habitat without asking their permission, respect the cultural traditions of Kenya and always dress with decorum.
• Stay over or leave before dusk, visitors must vacate the Park between 6.00 p.m. – 6.00a.m. unless they are camping overnight. Night game driving is not allowed.

Marine Wildlife Code
• Check local weather and sea conditions before entering the marine park.
•Some marine life is dangerous; do not touch anything under water.
• Do not damage or remove corals. It is a living organism which takes many years to form and is host to many rare and endangered species.
•Do not remove shells, starfish or any other sea – flora or fauna. Removal is illegal, seriously disrupts the eco system and some marine life is dangerous. The areas outside the parks and reserves is threatened by excessive shell collection. Empty shells provide homes for hermit crabs and some fish.
•Do not buy shells and other marine animal products as souvenirs as this encourages further plundering of the reefs and beaches.
• Never dispose of litter on the beach or in the sea. It is illegal and environmentally unfriendly. Marine turtles can confuse clear plastic waste with jelly fish and will die if they eat it.
• Hand – feeding of fish is discouraged. It disrupts normal feeding patterns.
• Hook and line fishing is allowed in the Marine Reserves but prohibited in Marine Parks. Spear guns are not permitted for use in either.
• Environmentally friendly activities such as snorkelling and diving are encouraged, under the supervision of the Kenya Wildlife Service wardens, who work closely with tour operators and hoteliers to ensure strict adherence to this code of practice.
• Avoid restaurants that serve undersized crabs and lobsters as this contributes to their rapid demise.
•Support traditional coastal livelihoods and do not give money to children on the beach, as this can encourage them to stay away from school.

AMAZING FACTS ABOUT THE WILDEBEEST MIGRATION IN MAASAI MARA

FACTS ABOUT THE WILDEBEEST MIGRATION IN MASAI MARA

World recognition: It’s one of “Seven New Wonders of the World”

Major players: Wildebeest- 1.6 million
Thomson’s gazelle 350,000
Zebras- 180,000
Eland- 12,500

Period : July-October

Reason for migration: To search for greener pastures in Mara reserves

Migration route: Ngorongoro-Serengeti park-Maswa Game Reserve-Masai Game Reserve.

Major predator Lions, Hyenas, Leopards, Crocodiles, Cheetah and other on migration route: Carnivorous

Notable activity:
Seeing the water terrified wildebeest cross the Mbalangeti, Grumeti and Mara River is hilarious activity but it’s also a sad scenery because some are eaten by the crocodile. Wildebeest arrive at the Mara River in thousands and gather along the Mara River waiting to cross. For days their number grows but many times they turn and wander away from the water’s edge. Eventually the courageous wildebeest will choose a crossing point. Although the point may vary from year to year, each year the over a million wildebeest will use the specific spot chosen by their first wildebeest. Usually the chosen point will be a fairly calm stretch of water without too much predator-concealing vegetation in the far side, although occasionally they will choose seemingly suicidal places and drown in their hundreds.

Physical ability of Wildebeest
The animals have physical ability to travel for long distances. A newborn wildebeest gains co-ordination faster than any other animal and is usually on its feet two to three minutes after birth. It can run with the herd at the age of five minutes and is able to outrun a lioness soon thereafter

Discover Kenya’s Four Highest Points

Discover Kenya’s Four Highest Points

MOUNT KENYA “A place of summer at daytime and winter at night”

Mount Kenya creates a gorgeous sight in Kenya. It is the second highest mountain in Africa. A hike up the mountain gives a splendid tour that is full of interesting bird species, plants and animals. Regardless of the mountain lying along the equator, the mountain tops are covered with snow glaciers.

The mountain has several peaks named after Masai chiefs. The three outstanding peaks are Batian-5,199 metres, Nelion -5,188 metres and Point Lenana -4,985 metre. In 1963, on Kenyan independence Kisoi Munyao raised the Kenyan flag at the top of the mountain. In the early 1970s the Mount Kenya National Park Mountain Rescue Team was formed, and by the end of the 1970s all major routes on the peaks had been climbed

God’s Mountain is what the Kikuyu community refers to this stratovolcano mountain created millions of years ago. They believe their God lives in the mountain. Even today a group of elderly men go around the mountain offering sacrifices to cleanse the mountain from any pollution.
Although many routes can be used to climb the mountain, Lenana peak is more accessible but for experienced technical climbers, peak Batian and Nelion will give an unforgettable challenge.

Mount Elgon -“The Border Mountain”

Uganda and Kenya share the glory of having the land mark mountain. It’s named after the Elgeyo tribe, who once lived in huge caves on the south side. The major peaks are five and “Wagagai” is the highest point (4320 meters) and entirely located in Uganda.

The Caves are what majorly define the beauty of the mountain. The biggest Kitum cave is 200 meters long and 30 meters wide. It is habitually visited by wild elephants that lick the salt exposed by gouging the walls with their tusks. In 1994 Mt Elgon became notorious following the publication of Richard Preston’s book “The Hot Zone”. It was associated with the Marburg virus (the Virus is in the same taxonomic family as Ebola) after two people who had visited the cave in 1980 and 1987 contracted the disease and died.

It’s cool heights offer relief for humans from the hot plains below and its higher altitudes provide a refuge for flora and fauna.

Mount Longonot

With a peak of 2780m, Mount Longonot has a very rare feature. On the sides of the mountain are V-shaped valleys and ridges with little vegetation, on the other hand a forest of small trees covers the crater floor, and small steam vents are found spaced around the walls of the crater.

The mountain is home to various species of wildlife, particularly zebra, giraffe and buffaloes and hartebeest. Leopards have also been reported but are extremely difficult to spot

The mountain with the round encircling crater got its unique name from Maasai word “oloonong’ot” meaning mountain of spur
It’s located southeast of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya.

Mount Kilimambogo- Buffalo Mountain

Most of its surface is covered by a forest inhabited by grazers such as buffaloes, monkeys and antelopes. At highest it stands at 2145m above sea level.

Hikers take pleasure in 10km climb to the top. All along the way up, one encounters eye-catching array of flora that thrives here undisturbed by human exploitation. The hike takes between 2 to 3 hours depending on the level of fitness. However, proper caution is provided to prevent any attacks from buffalos. Lord William MacMillan was the first American to see the mountain. As a result, he owned the mountain. Former US President Theodore Roosevelt and British Prime minister Sir Winston Churchill were hosted by Lord William during their Safari to Kenya. Close to the peak is the grave of Lord Macmillan, his wife and their dog. Also, there is an extra grave of one Louise, who started working for the Macmillan’s when she was age 13 until her death.

Fourteen Falls is a gorgeous landmark about 3kms from the mountain. As the name indicate there are 14 falls found along Athi River, an attraction not to be missed when you are in the locality.

The Wonders of the Great Rift Valley

Every place in the planet has a story to tell. In Africa, The Great Rift Valley stretches 6000 Kilometers’ from Ethiopia to Mozambique and is over 35 million years old. It was formed when extreme heat and pressure forced a 1,000 mile-wide bubble of molten lava to the surface. The enormous valley has breath taking animals, lakes, gorges, craters, springs and many more undiscovered places.

Today, the Great Valley Rift is one the major tourist attraction in East Africa. In Ethiopia one of remarkable place is the Danakil/Afar depression. The Afar Depression includes the Danakil Desert and the lowest point in Africa, Lake Asal (–155 meters or –500 ft). Dallol is also part of the Depression, one of the hottest places on Earth with air-temperature record of 64.4 °C. Thousands of years ago, this low-lying area was a salt lake which has subsequently dried up and resulted in a big plain of salt which covers an area of more than 10 square kilometers and from which salt has been extracted since ancient times. It is estimated that there are 250 million tons of salt

In Kenya, the valley is bordered by escarpments to the east and west. The floor is broken by volcanoes, some still active, and contains a series of lakes. Some of the soils are fertile from relatively recent volcanic activity.

Lake Bogoria is one of the unique lakes. The 30 sq km lake is still volcanically active, and the Western shore is lined with spouting geysers, spurting steam and bubbling geothermal pools. Water springs at the lake edge attract an abundance of birds and wildlife. The most outstanding bird is the flamingo. This birds feeds primarily on algae which grow only in alkaline lakes. Although flamingos are blue-green in colour, the algae contain the photosynthetic pigments that give the birds their pink colour. Though many hills are found in different areas of the rift valley, Mount Longonot has a very rare feature. On the sides of the mountain are V-shaped valleys and ridges with little vegetation; on the other hand a thick forest occurs within the crater. In the early 1900s, Mount Longonot erupted, and ash can still be felt around Hell’s Gate. Hell Gate has very beautiful gorges that descend into hot springs and in some places you can find rocks that will burn you.

The formation of the Great Rift Valley ensured some of the most famous places on Tanzania map .In Tanzania along the valley exist the second longest and the second deepest lake in the world. Lake Tanganyika stretches 400 mile( 676km) and is 3 miles deep. Many fish species inhabit the lake including 250 different species of East Africa cichlids. Scientist believe the cichlids evolved into many species due to the dare need to survive the harsh environment created by other fish species and animals. Ngorongoro is the world’s largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic crater. Its 610 meters deep and its floor cover is 260 square kilometers. The Great Plains of the Serengeti, formed during the early stages of the formation of the Ngorongoro Crater, today host one of nature’s greatest happenings – the great wildebeest migration.

Africa’s Big Five and their Exceptional Features

Africa’s Big Five and their Exceptional Features
When one starts of thinking or researching on an African safari, the “Big Five” often crops up. The “Big 5” refers to the African: Lion, Leopard, Rhino, elephant and Buffalo. A Safari to most countries will give you a chance to see all these animals plus other abundant animals not highlighted, we will look at a case of a Safari to Kenya

ELEPHANTS
It’s the biggest of big five in Africa. A single glance of an adult elephant leaves a very spectacular memory that is unforgettable. The most interesting part of its body structure is the ears, they can weigh up to 110 pounds. Due to their weak eye sight, the ears are used as recognize substances around them. Elephant walk using their toes. One might ask how the toes support weight of upto 8 tones. Well, it’s simple the toes are cushioned with a layer of cartilage. This cartilage reduces pressure on the bones and makes its walk to be silent regardless of its size.

Socially, it’s noteworthy how the elephants portray to be social mammals. In one of Kenya’s oldest and most gorgeous national park, certain female elephant illustrated great intelligence and integrity by guiding her family for over 30 years. As the leader she is expected to make major decision on matter such as where to graze, when to migrate during drought and even protect the young calves from attack. Unfortunately the courageous “Malaika-Angel” died in 2009 and the rest of herd truly mourned her departure. It’s believed that the oldest female in the herd replaces departed one.

Elephants have a life expectancy of 70-80 years. Per day an elephant can consume between 150-170kgs of vegetation. Averagely its water consumption is between 14-26 gallons. Their trunk is very vital during feeding. Water is filled in their trunk first, then transferred o the mouth.

Like most events, firsthand experience always leaves a mark. A visit to Kenya will definitely literally bring you to interact with these animals.

RHINOCEROUS
Although black listed among the most endangered species in Africa, Scientist believe the rhino history can be dated 5million ago. The very huge animal has been like a gold mine to many poachers in Africa. The major market is china where they believe its horn has medicinal value. Currently it’s estimated that only 4200 black rhino are alive.

The black and white rhino are very interesting species. Contrary to what their name indicates, their difference isn’t based on their colour.

The white rhinos have wide mouth and are found in grassland and savannah. This makes them to be a pure grazer. Black rhino’s colour ranges from brown to grey. They have narrow pointed mouth and are both gazers and browsers. This is enabled by their pointed lip.

BUFFALO
Africa tales refer the animal as the “crying animal” or “the black death”. Some Africans believe that the animal literally sheds tears when it sees human being. Averagely the black beast kills upto 200 people per year.

Savannah-type buffaloes weigh 500 to 900 kg with males normally larger than females, reaching the upper weight range. Its head is carried low backline. The front part of the body is heavier and more powerful than the back. Therefore front hooves of the buffalo are wider than the rear.

They live in swampy areas and grasslands. The strongest male in the herd is the one that mates, this bull must fight and scare off other bulls .In the dry season, males will depart from the herd and form bachelor groups. Two types of bachelor herds occur: ones made of males aged 4 to 7 years and those of males 12 years or older. During the wet season, the younger bulls rejoin a herd to mate with the females. They stay with them throughout the season to protect the calves.

LION
The Father of lions, George Adamson had great experience with Africa lions. He took care of orphaned lions hoping this would lead to generation of lions. Unfortunately the same animals that he took care of have drastically reduced from 420,000 to around 21,500.

Lions are the fiercest animal in the jungle.10–14 is the number of years they can live in wild, while in confinement they can live longer than 20 years. In the wild, they live for fewer years due to injuries sustained from repeated fighting with rival males

Compared to other cats, lions are oddly social. A pride of lions consists of related females and offspring and a small number of adult males. Female lions typically hunt together, however males have a tendency to take over the kill once the lionesses have succeeded. Male cubs are excluded from their maternal pride when they reach maturity.

The male lion is unique, it’s easily recognized by its tresses, and its face is one of the most widely recognized animal symbols in human culture.

Although lions don’t hunt human beings, in1898 in Kenya’s Tsavo national park reported cases were published on how man-eating lions killed railway workers. 28 officially recorded railway workers building the Kenya-Uganda Railway were taken by lions over nine months during the construction of a bridge over the Tsavo river in Kenya

LEOPARD
Many people are unable to differentiate between the cheetah and leopard. The cheetah has a narrow waist, run faster, rarely climbs the trees and does not eat carcasses. However, Leopards commonly rest on trees branches; they can carry a dead animal up to 50kgs on a tree and can feed on the carcasses for four days. In addition Leopards are distinguished by their large heads, long body and short legs

Due to their shyness it is extremely difficult to spot them in the jungles of Africa
Each spot on a leopard is unique—similar to the fingerprints of humans. These spots are circular in leopards found in Eastern Africa. Leopards are very cautious and like to follow close and run a relatively short distance after their prey. They kill through suffocation by grabbing their prey by the throat and biting down with their powerful jaws. They rarely fight other predators for their food. Male leopards are larger, averaging 60 kg – 91 kg and females weigh about 35 to 40 kg.

The Maasai Community of East Africa

In open fields of Kenya and Tanzania, along The Great Rift valley live the Maasai People. One of the easily notable community, their traditionally bright coloured leso/kikoi (sheets), beaded elongated ear lobes, a walking stick, machete and sandals made from old car tires is what is easily identified about a Maasai. They came from north of Kenya through the Great Rift Valley. Some even belief they have an ancestral origin from Egypt.

They are dreaded as great warriors. In the 18th century when British colonization was establishing it rule in Kenya, the Maasai were able to resist the British rule for years. However due to restricted movement their cattle died and reduced from 500,000 to 40,000.As a result they finally surrendered in 1904.

A close interaction with the people, introduces one to very diverse community that is rich in culture. Previously, young Maasai’s known as Morans (age between 13-30 years) were expected to express their power by killing a lion. Recently, in 2012 four lions attacked a Maasai homestead and the courageous Morans killed the four beasts with their spears. These young men are not allowed to marry until later in life. Morans are treated with special status because they act as defense team to the children, women and the elderly. They involve in cattle rustling to increase the number of their herd.

A simple delicacy among the Maasai include on blood, meat and milk. On some of the circumstances blood is drunk by the sick, women who have given birth and the circumcised. It’s always a wonder how the raw blood doesn’t affect these Maasai. Their medicine men are well known of making the traditional medicine using the herbs.

Their small houses known as manyattas, are barely more than 5ft tall. Women are responsible of making these houses. Due to their nomadic culture, the manyatta are temporary structures made with wood post covered with mud. The mud is then plastered with cow dung and ash. Inside the manyatta you’ll find at most four rooms. The first belong to their cattle’s calves. This protects them from dangerous animals like the hyena. In addition it also prevents the calves from suckling all the milk. The second room belongs to the children and the wives. Third room is where the husband sleeps. The last room is the kitchen and dining room.

Beauty and Understanding The Art Of Uganda

Beauty and Understanding: The Art Of Uganda

No matter what you’re looking for out of your holiday, you can probably find it in Uganda. It’s beautiful natural sights are open to both families and individual tourists, as are its bustling cultural centres. So whether you’re looking to explore the Eastern Nile River, find yourself alone on a stunning beach, watch the wildlife in the country’s many national parks , or simply immerse yourself in a vibrant culture, Uganda can provide. Yet many of these crown jewels are found off the beaten path, away from the crowded tourist destinations, and investigating these exciting destinations can lead to the trip of a lifetime. One option for a Ugandan holiday is to explore the country’s growing arts culture, both the art itself and the natural wonders which inspire Uganda’s talented artists.

Discovering Uganda’s Artists

At its most personal, art is the best way of expressing a culture and “sense of place”. The artists of any given country will draw from their own life experience and the influence of the artists around them, giving interested tourists a unique look into the heart of their host culture. Art seems to capture movements, history and symbolism, and Uganda is a country which has plenty of art to offer. Exploring the artists of Uganda can open up a new world of experiences that might not be otherwise available to other tourists, enriching your holiday and maybe even giving you a chance to bring a bit of Uganda home with you in the form of artwork. From the Nommo Gallery (Uganda’s National Art Gallery, founded in 1964) to smaller craft fairs, there are a range of options for the curious traveler to explore and discover.

The Art of Kampala

The capital city of Uganda, Kampala, is home to two of the country’s most fascinating attractions: Exposure Africa, and the Uganda Arts and Crafts Village. These markets, both of which are located in the city centre, and feature exhibitions and stalls where artistic creations can be purchased as truly one-of-a-kind souvenirs.

Exposure Africa is the biggest crafts fair in Kampala, with over 30 different stalls – each run by a different local artist – to explore. The merchandise is made locally, by the artists themselves, and reflects the beauty of Uganda’s natural world: glittering beaches and towering waterfalls, animals and plants which can be found in few other places in the world, and national parks which preserve the wild places of the country for future generations. Many of the artists are from Uganda’s more rural areas, and their artwork often features a hybrid sensibility, wedding their rural life to the energy and cultural diversity of the city itself. Veterans of Exposure Africa recommend scoping out the entire fair before making a purchase, and to not be afraid of haggling for a lower price.

Located behind the National Theatre, the Uganda Arts and Crafts Village is a smaller venue that still offers a wide range of original works by artists from across the country. Like Exposure Africa, many of the artists here come from rural regions and their artwork calls to mind the breathtaking natural beauty that can be found outside the city.

Seeing For Yourself

In order to properly see the source of this inspiration for yourself, avoiding the most popular tourist attractions is critical. The Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda’s southern region is magnificent and well-worth the visit, but the country holds a myriad of hidden wonders, just waiting to be discovered by the adventurous traveler. These are the places which Ugandans think of as “home”, and seeing them in person can provide a great deal of insight into the country’s culture and heritage.

The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, for example, is a primeval forest located in southwestern Uganda and one of the most biologically diverse regions on earth. It’s particularly well-known for its primates: half the world’s silverback gorilla population lives there, as well as baboons and many species of monkeys. In terms of true wilderness, few regions on earth can compare. For those who are more interested in human culture, the Kasubi
Tombs are a link between Uganda’s past and it’s blossoming future. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the tombs are the burial place of four kings of the Buganda Empire, known as kabakas. In March of 2010, a fire broke out at the tombs and some of the structures were destroyed; however, the site is still open to travelers who wish to know more about this important monument to the kings, and reconstruction is underway.

Beauty can be found anywhere you travel in Uganda, but sometimes seeing it through the eyes of home-grown artists can lend a new dimension to these breathtaking sites. If you’re considering a trip to Uganda, plan to visit these hidden jewels and explore a side of the country which few tourists see.
