This 8 days wildlife safari experience, will expose you to wild animals of East Africa are some of the most incredible creatures in the world. In East Africa you will find the fastest, largest, and weirdest animals on the earth, many of which are unfortunately endangered species. These are facts meant for every kind of travelers interested in what types of wildlife exist in East Africa and how these animals survive. Below you will find a few basic facts about some random animals.
- Four of the five fastest land animals in the world are found on the African continent. They are the Cheetah, Wildebeest, Lion, and the Thomson's gazelle. The Wildebeest, Lion, and the Thomson's gazelle can reach a speed of up to 50 mph (80.47 KPH) for short burst. The Cheetah can hit an unbelievable 70 mph (112.65 KPH) for short burst.
- The African elephant is by far the largest living land mammal. It can weigh up to seven tons (6350.29 kilograms). This incredible animal is an endangered species.
- The Gorilla is the largest primate on the earth; even so they are very shy, over half of the world population is only found in Uganda
- The Nile crocodile is the largest reptile in Africa. The average length is five meters (16.4 feet). These dangerous creatures kill hundreds of people each year.
- In Cameroon you can find frogs that are a foot long. They are the largest frogs in the world and are appropriately named goliath frogs.
Interesting Africa Animal Facts
- Over 1,100 species of mammals are living in Africa.
- Over 2,600 species of birds are living in Africa.
- What large animal kills the most people in Africa? Not the lion, and not the crocodile; it is in fact the hippo. The males are very territorial and will attack anything that enters their area. Females aggressively protect their babies. Hippos have even been known to kill crocodiles.
- Cape Buffalo is also extremely dangerous; in fact they kill approximately two hundred people annually. They quickly charge and gore anyone they perceive as a threat.
- Besides being one of the fastest animals in the world the Thompson's Gazelle has an amazing sense of smell, sight, and hearing. These senses, along with its speed, often enable it to sense and escape a predator’s attack.
- Second in size only to the African elephant are Rhinos. Adult White Rhinos can weigh in at six thousand pounds (2721 kilograms). They are known to have a bad temper which along with their size and sharp horn make them extremely dangerous.
- Male African lions can weigh up to 550 pounds (250 kg) and have been known to occasionally attack elephants.
- Only a few minutes after being born a Wildebeest can run. After a few days they can go fast enough to keep up with the herd. Until this time, they are easy prey for predators and must stay close to their mothers for protection.
- There are plenty of vultures in Africa. This African animal will feed on dead animal carcasses which are often rotting in the hot African sun. They are well equipped for this type of meal. They have very strong acids in their digestive system which kills dangerous bacteria in their meal.
- Millions of years before modern day animals roamed Africa dinosaurs lived there. In Tanzania, a country in East Africa, the oldest dinosaur bones ever discovered were unearthed. This dinosaur, named Nyasasaurus parringtoni, roamed the earth around 240 million years ago.

On arrival at the airport, you will be met by our representative and a driver guide who will brief you on your safari. The Kenyan breeze whips through your hair, a welcome respite from the already rising heat of the day. On our drive north from Nairobi to the Samburu National Reserve, you spot crocodiles along the sun-baked banks of the EwasoNg'iro River. And if Samburu's scenery looks familiar, it's not déjà vu; these open plains featured prominently in the award-winning British drama, Born Free.Our destination is Samburu National Reserve, a wilderness retreat of grassy savannah, rolling mountains and glimmering horizons obstructed only by passing elephants, lions, leopards, zebras, and giraffes. Your very first game drive is a smorgasbord of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, including sightings of hippos and Nile crocodiles (oh my!). The reserve is also home to kind-hearted Kamunyak ("Blessed One"), the miracle lioness who adopted at least six oryx calves. She hasn't been seen since 2004; you may be you be the one who spots her next?

Awake with the sun for an early morning game drive. You're on the lookout for Samburu's special "Big Five" – rare sightings of Beisaoryx, gerenuk, Grévy's zebra, Masai ostrich, and reticulated giraffe (Somali giraffe). Just as the outdoors heat up, we're back inside for breakfast and leisure time at the lodge's pools, poolside bar and health club. As the sun's golden rays descend into the horizon, the bush comes alive with big game and hulking predators. Take advantage of dropping mercury and rising animal sightings, and head out on your second game drive (16:00) to spot hunting wildcats and lumbering elephants.

Sit down to get served breakfast in Samburu and lunch at Aberdare Country Club, a stately hotel located in the heart of Kenya's coffee and tea region. We'll wind up our food tour at The Ark's Lodge, your Aberdare National Park lodge. The vista that unfolds at your final destination, Aberdare National Park, is enough to stun the senses: the majestic park soars to 4,300 metres (14,000 feet) above sea level, skimming mountaintops and diving into v-shaped valleys, swooping under waterfalls, and soaring over moorland, rainforests and bamboo forests. Aberdare is your first chance to spot Africa's famed "Big Five" – the African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, lion, and black rhinoceros – all in one place.

Close your eyes and call to mind the African savannah, where a leopard races through golden grasses that dance in the wind. Envision a smiling woman, bedecked in a kaleidoscope of beads and fabrics. See a dazzle of zebras, zigging and zagging across the plains in a coordinated dance of camouflage. Now open your eyes. You are there: here, in the Africa of postcards and of dreams – in the reality of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The magic of this incredible region is owed to many things: to the friendly Maasai, a centuries-old tribe and enduring culture; to the scenic beauty of these sun-dappled plains; to the vast natural diversity found here, from Africa's Big Five game to the millions of wildebeest that beat a path through the reserve every year. This is the Africa where blackened profiles of giraffes and rhinoceros’s parade against an orange horizon, and where lions get so close, you can almost feel their breath on your face. Welcome.

As dawn unfolds over the Maasai Mara, the origins of the region's name soon become clear: Mara, Maasai for "spotted," is an apt description for the whimsical smattering of fluffy clouds, gnarled trees, and ever-changing shadows that dot the landscape. And on today's morning and afternoon game drives, we delve deep into this spectacular scenery. We search for grazing giraffes, speedy antelopes and wading hippos, but our most sought-after sightings are of Africa's Big Five – the five most fierce and dangerous animals on the continent: African buffalo, black rhinos, bush elephants, leopards and lions. And if we timed our trip right, there's more: the Great Migration. This annual event is considered the Eighth Wonder of the World, and for good reason: every year, millions of wildebeest (gnu) and hundreds of thousands of zebra thunder across Tanzania's Serengeti and into the Maasai Mara, comprising the largest land animal migration in the world. You will remember this sight forever, but it is the cadence of the animals' racing hooves that will forever reverberate through you memories.
