Trip Report Self-drive safari in Kenya - September 2011

Jump to last reply

Being marine biologists who work much of the time at sea, we felt it was time to spend a bit of time watching wildlife on land again. Having made self-drive safaris to Kenya before, we decided that this time we wanted to see one of the most dramatic spectacles in the natural world - the great migration in the Masai Mara.

Besides the Mara, we also visited the drought-stricken Meru National Park, where we had the most amazing cheetah encounters; beautiful Samburu and Buffalo Springs National Reserve with its friendly elephants; Lake Nakuru and Tsavo East, home of the red elephants. Being supporters of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for some years now, we decided to also visit their Ithumba Release Station in northern Tsavo East, which was a very special place to get to know and it was an unforgettable experience mingling with the orphaned elephants large and small!

For a detailed report of our safari, including several hundreds of photos, please visit our website:
