"An old fashioned western standoff between a rhino bull and an alpha male wild dog. They both look confused as to what to do! But it ends peacefully...maybe humans could take a cue. 👀 Best seat in the house goes to the oxpecker chilling out on the rhinos back. 😂 What an experience!" . .

An African icon, by @mlorentz23 “In some ways giraffe epitomize Africa more than any other animal. It would be hard to imagine the endless plains without them, and yet in the 30 years their numbers have dropped by over 30% across the continent, with some populations having decreased by over 90%. Some subspecies are on the verge of extinction.” #endangeredspecies #giraffe @giraffe_conservation @passagetoafrica #maasaimara #kenya

#Repost @mombasaair Amboseli is 300 kilometers from the Coast and seven hours of hard road travel but only one hour by air with the chance to view Majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro Africa's highest mountain. The park is long established and well run but is one the smaller animal sanctuaries. Wildlife is however very concentrated and easily viewed making this one of Kenya's more popular parks especially with children. Amboseli has a large game population and is well known for it's Elephant herds and superb variety of birdlife. All of this makes for a photographer's paradise. Be prepared for dust and heat. Because of it's small size we recommend a one night stay as sufficient to enjoy this jewel of a park unless you stay at a small privately run luxury camp in which case you may never want to leave.  #mombasaair #amboseli #magicalkenya #wildlifephotography #airsafari #travel #holiday #beautifuldestinations #wildlife #kenyasafari #imagekenya8 #maasaimara #holidaydestinations #africansafari #bushsafari #follow #like #amazing #amazingdestination #holidays #mombasaairsafari #natgeo #photography #capture #photoshoot #kilimanjaro #awesome

#safarifacts What is the Wildebeest Migration? The #wildebeest migration is the annual movement of 1.2 million wildebeest and zebra between Tanzania's #serengetinationalpark and Kenya's #maasaimara. The migration is usually in the #Serengeti from late December until late August, making these months the best for #wildlife viewing in the Serengeti. The best months to view the #migration are generally January through March when the migration is in larger herds. The highlight of the migration occurs during a two week period in February when the wildebeest give birth to 8,000 babies daily. . . #serengeti_national_park #serengetimigration #serengetimigrationcamp #serengetipark #annualmigration #animalmigration #wildebeestmigration #marariver #africansafaris #migrationsafari #sevenwonders #tanzaniasafari #shizisafaris #animaladventures #tzvacation #serengetiplains #adventuresafari

Maasai Mara, Kenya (Dec.2018) マサイマラ, ケニア(2018年12月) 【日本語は下記】 Wild Animals I met in Maasai Mara. We could see many carnivorous animals; lion, cheetah, leopard. It was so impressed and luck that we could see copulating lions. I wanted to see the migration of gun, however it wasn’t season when I visited. Next time. サファリは朝が勝負。さすがのマサイマラ、たくさん肉食動物が見れた。ライオンの交尾が見れるというとてもラッキーな私たち。遠かったがチーターもいた。午後からは一番見たかったヒョウが見れた。ヌーの群れも見たかったがこの時期は群れはセレンゲッティに移動しており大群や大移動は見れなかった。サファリは貧乏旅行者には高い買い物なのでどこでやるか迷ってたけど...。マサイマラでやってよかった。 #maasaimara #kynia #africa #amazingworld #safari #gamedrive #lion #leopard #wildanimals #travelingaroundtheworld #travel #worldtrip #backpacker #aroundtheworld #solofemaletraveler #マサイマラ #ケニア #アフリカ #サファリ #野生動物 #ライオン #ヒョウ #ヌー #チーター #世界一周 #女一人旅 #世界旅行 #旅行 #世界の絶景

Good things definitely come to those who wait. We spent a while watching some lion cubs playing, and when they disappeared in to the bushes the other vehicles went off to find the next big spot. We decided to hang around on the other side of the bushes to see if they might come through. We sat for a while, just being quiet and patient. Then this happened. You can see how close they are from the shadow of our vehicle. I’m not using zoom. When the little guy stops and looks right at us at the end, my heart melts! If you’d like to learn how you can help protect these beauties, please comment or dm me. Sadly they’re in way more trouble in the wild than most people realise. That’s why I’m proud to support @marapredatorconservation. #lions #lioncubs #cutelioncubs #closeencounters #wildlifeencounters #beautifulmoments #lionsofkenya #lionsofinstagram #lionsinthewild #savelions #bigcats #bigcatsofkenya #bigcatsofinstagram #africa #kenya #maasaimara #maranorthconservancy #kicheche #kichechemaracamp #safari #ecosafari #responsibletravel #conservation #lionconservation #predatorconservation

I think it is important to learn more about cultures when traveling. In Africa we are fortunate to still have a lot of culture and although development sometimes means that we are losing some of the culture, we are still able to interact and learn more from them about their customs and way of life.

Mara River Update: this is a part of the river known as “The Penninsula”. It is one of the main crossing points during the Great Migration. The first photo was taken today (19 May 2019), and the second was taken during a wildebeest crossing last year (25 August 2018). The worry...the level of the water. We are coming to an end of what is historically a wet period for this region, and this rain is meant to feed into the Mara and in due course Lake Victoria. But the rain has not come this year and for a magnitude of reasons the river is extremely low. Who knows what it will be like on the 25 August 2019. #waterislife #awareness #protectthemarariver #maasaimara #mara #kenya #nature #conservationphotography #wildlife #greatmigration #wildebeest @herdtracker @seedballskenya @featured_wildlife @wildgeography #river #earth #africa

Maasai Mara Game Reserve >>> The Maasai Mara, together with Tanzania's Serengeti form Africa's most famous wildlife park - the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The undeniable highlight of the Maasai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration, traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. #WellnessSafarisByAWS --- Contact us for more information and begin planning your dream Exquisite Safari!

So nostalgic seeing Carmen playing this morning with her Maasai jewellery and shuka she hand picked from the village where we stayed @majimotomaasaiculturalcamp Does anyone else get that happy heart ache when reminiscing over a country you fell in love with and long so much to go back? Carms was only 2.5 years old when we backpacked Kenya, but with such distinct culture, warm hospitable people and adventure all around, it’s no wonder she remembers the details of our trip perfectly. She talks about Salaton the Maasai leader and how he taught her to make a fire in the bush, she remembers the songs we learnt around the camp fire and loves doing impressions of the shrieks the Maasai tribe made as they sang. It definitely helps that we make YouTube videos of our trips, which from time to time we watch back with little one and fondly remember our adventures together! If you’ve never watched our stay with the Maasai Tribe, head over to our YouTube channel and have a look (link in bio) ☺️👍

I am always trying to discover something new. It was a beautiful experience to visit the Maasai Village in Kenya. I was able to walk in the bush with a Maasai warrior, to catch glimpses of exotic animals, and to learn more about their lifestyle and traditions.⠀ ⠀ Pokaždé se snažím poznávat něco nového. Možnost navštívit Maasaiskou vesnici a procházet se s Maasaiským bojovníkem v buši, pozorovat divoká zvířata a naučit se více a jejich životním stylu a tradicích, bylnaprosto neskutečný zážitek. ⠀ ⠀ #keepdiscovering #ceskavafrice #ceskaholkanacestach #afrikavsrdci # bezelektriny #masaiskybojovnik #navstevakeny #learning #kenyavisit #maasaiwarrior #animalwatching #fittraveling #imisstheraindowninafrica #travelafrica #maasaivillage #maasaimara #amboseli #livinginthebush #noelectricity #sleepingontheground #happylifestyle #simplelife #nomuchneeded #proteinbae

Happy Sunday from Fellow Member Kicheche Mara Camp, one of the @kicheche_safari_camps! The tented camp in Kenya’s Mara North conservancy is a model for low-density tourism. Guests can expect an exclusive and sustainable safari experience with an intimate charm. The setting is a peaceful one with tents overlooking the Olare Orok stream in an acacia valley. Beyond that, I’m the 74,000 acres of community-owned conservation land, there is the excitement of abundant wildlife freely wandering on traditional routes. Community involvement has changed the attitude of the Maasai to wildlife and, through increased awareness of the symbiotic relationship between human and wildlife activities, they now treat the animals as a resource to be protected. #init4thelongrun #maranorthconservancy #magicalkenya #kenya #onsafari #safari #breakfast #bushbreakfast #kicheche #kichechemaracamp #maasaimara #wildlife #ecocamp #ecotravel #ecotourism #sustainabletravel #sustainability #environment #community #conservation

Little and large; a young elephant‘s ‘baby tusks’ in contrast to the adult’s mature tusks ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Both male and female African elephants have tusks, which are actually elongated incisor teeth. One third of the tusk is hidden from view, embedded deep in the elephant’s head. Although tusks are present at birth, the ’baby tusks’ fall out after a year, and permanent ones replace them. These tusks will continue to grow throughout the elephant’s life. Some old elephant bulls display enormous tusks, however their average size has decreased over the past hundred years and due to hunting and ivory poaching, the ‘big tusk gene’ is becoming rare. Elephant’s use their tusks for a wide range of activities including; digging, foraging and fighting and at times, they also act as a resting place for the elephant’s very heavy trunk. Evidence suggests that elephants normally prefer one tusk over the other, similar to being left or right handed in humans, the preferred tusk is known as the master tusk. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tusks #elephants #africanelephants #elephantcalf #wildelephants #wildafrica #elephantphotography #elephantsofinstagram #africanwildlifephotography #loveelephants #elephantlover #animalsofafrica #africanwildlife #majesticwildlife #nature #wildlife #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephotography #wildlifeconservation #conservationphotography #elephantconservation #jointheherd #saveelephants #stoppoaching #elephantday #maasaimara #riftvalley #amboselinationalpark #kenya
