Best time to go for Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour

Visitors intending to trek mountain gorillas should put in mind that Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour is an intensive experience that can take the whole day.

The dry season is the best time for gorilla trekking in Uganda when the ground is dry. Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour starts in June, July, August, September and December, January, February. During the dry season, the habitat is kept drier and makes it easier for trekkers to hike through dense vegetation and steep slopes to search for mountain gorillas unlike during the wet/rainy season when there is plenty of rainfall which makes the ground muddy and slippery.

Masai Mara – Serengeti Ecosystem

Masai Mara Game Reserve is divided into conservation and reserve portions. It is also home to the famous Maasai tribe who call the lands home. Masai Mara Game Reserve is so well-known that it is often called simply ‘the Mara’. Mara Serengeti Safari Packages itineraries will take you through Serengeti National Park, which is an endless plain holding a dense population of wildlife and birdlife.

Kenya’s neighbor Tanzania sits just to the south. The Masai Mara National Reserve is located in the southwestern corner of Kenya, sharing a border with an equally world-famous wildlife refuge in Tanzania, the Serengeti National Park.

Under the fierce sun, heat prevails, and the world-renowned wildlife of the African plains shuttle from watering hole to watering hole and from one rainy season to another. Each year, between the months of July and October, more than a million Wildebeests escorted by large numbers of Zebras and Gazelles congregate and migrate northwards from drier parts of Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.

The wildebeest trek, which is driven by nature’s instinct in search of food and water, is naturally synchronized. The early stage of this migration spectacle is pieced together and ‘flagged-off’ from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which makes part of the bigger Serengeti – Mara Ecosystem.

The Wildebeests making up the migration spend most of their time in the open plains of Serengeti National Park before starting the greatest and longest journey from Tanzania to Kenya’s Masai Mara at the end of the rainy season when Mara’s Savannah is decorated by green-browning grass.

Mount Kenya is one of Africa’s second highest mountain, you can experience a high altitude walking trip amongst rugged peaks and glaciers, without the crowds. If you are fit and active and want to challenge yourself to a high peak, you can trek to the third highest point, Point Lenana, which at 4,985 meters is higher than Mont Blanc. Or you can stroll in the eastern foothills, camping by Lake Ellis, visiting the spectacular Nithi waterfalls and climbing the mini summit of Mugi Hill.

After Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya in the eastern Great Rift Valley is the second highest mountain in Africa. Like Kilimanjaro, it is an eroded stratovolcano with glaciers on its highest peaks, but unlike its higher sibling in Tanzania, only Point Lenana at 4985 meters (16355 feet) is accessible to trekkers as the lesser of the tri-peaks. The higher peaks, Batian, 5199 meters (17057 feet) and Nelion, 5188 meters (17021 feet) are technical vertical climbs requiring Class 5 technical climbing skills to complete Mount Kenya Trekking Safari.

Other major summits on the mountain include Point Piggott 4,957m, Point Dutton 4,885 and Point John 4,883m. Of the Mt. Kenya’s three main peaks (Batian, Lenana and Nelion), only point Lenana can be reached by trekkers and the other two being only for technical climbers – Mount Kenya technical climbing routes. How difficult is Mount Kenya hiking and which are the best months for Mt Kenya climbing? Go to Mount Kenya expeditions and take an adventure hiking trip along the Equator. Climb Mt Kenya hikes and Mount Kenya trek main routes are: Naromoru route, Chogoria Route and Sirimon route Mount Kenya.

We offer guided Mount Kenya Trekking Safari trails to Lenana Peak, often as acclimatization trips before attempting the Kilimanjaro climb, but we advise teaming up with specialist rock climbing guides to ascend higher, unless Class 5 clients with known expertise make special requests. Situated east of the Great Rift Valley by the equator and 175 kilometers north-east of Nairobi, Mount Kenya National Park is reached by road or air through the Nanyuki Airstrip.

We provide an experienced and professional trekking crew for your Mt. Kenya highlands trip comprising a guide, a cook, a personal porter for each trekker and one for equipment’s. It is essential to have a knowledgeable and skillful guide on Mount Kenya Trekking Safari to protect you from your own enthusiasm as well as to encourage you, and explain the significance of everything you see around you as you soar. The Kenyan Wildlife Service requires that all guides and porters are trained, licensed and qualified in their knowledge of local conditions, flora and fauna and geological formations, and in the monitoring, recognition and treatment of high altitude sickness.

Fitness, Altitude and Safety on Mount Kenya Trekking Safari

Climbing Mount Kenya is very accessible and there-in lies the problem. With a decent level of fitness, it is easy to gain altitude quickly and find yourself the on the night before summiting with a throbbing head-ache and all the symptoms of acute mountain sickness. Mount Kenya Trekking Safari with a good experienced guide, taking a sensible easy pace and keeping hydrated makes all the difference. The best approach is always to allow extra time for your ascent, an extra day at Shipton’s Camp takes all the pressure of the itinerary and gives you time to enjoy the fabulous trekking around the peak.

Guides, Porters and Cooks during Mount Kenya Trekking Safari

The trekking crew will usually consist of a guide, cook, porter for the cooking gear plus a personal porter per trekker. It has been said before, but a good experienced guide is so important on Mount Kenya Trekking Safari, for two reasons; (1) they will regulate your pace, be able to draw on their experience to diagnose altitude sickness symptoms and have the confidence to make critical decisions and (2) their knowledge of the wildlife and fauna on the mountain will bring the environment alive.

Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route Options

There are 5 main routes to the peak.
Sirimon Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route: Sirimon route, is the most popular ascent as the altitude gain is nice and steady and it offers one of the most beautiful approaches to the peaks. Allow a minimum of 2 nights to peak when ascending, although we recommend spending an extra night at the last camp (Shipton’s) on the way up.

Burguret Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route: If you want to avoid the crowds then Burguret Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route is the best route. You’ll be hacking through pristine rainforest on this little used route, overnighting at wilderness campsites. Going up this route is challenging, it is little more than a game track in places, often muddy and rough under foot. Burguret Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route is usually combined with a Chogoria or Sirimon descent. Allow a minimum of 3 nights before peak when ascending.

Naro Moru Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route: Naro-Moru is the most popular descent route, fast and easy (at least on the way down!). Naro Moru passes through the notorious vertical bog section which gets very waterlogged in the rainy seasons. The vegetation is at its most striking on this route. It can be descended in one very long day, usually done in two days and one night.
Chogoria Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route: If you have more time then choose dramatic Chogoria over Naro Moru for the descent. The Chogoria route passes by tarns, waterfalls and an incredible gorge. Allow two or three days for your descent.

Timau Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route: Timau is little used nowadays, there is little forest on this side of the mountain and no facilities, just lots of wide open country.
This guide to Mount Kenya is intended as a useful resource for any trekker planning to climb Mount Kenya. For those looking to book an organized trek with experienced guides, full support and private transport from Nairobi, we can arrange treks along all the routes above.
Our recommended routes are the 5 day Sirimon – Naro Moru (including an extra day for acclimatization at Shipton’s Camp), and the 7 day Sirimon – Chogoria and Bagoret – Chogoria for those with more time:

Mount Kenya Trekking Safari 7 Day Sirimon Chogoria Mount Kenya Trek:

The classic choice for those with more time. Up the beautiful (and nicely paced) Sirimon route then down arguably the most dramatic Chogoria route past gorges, tarns and waterfalls. Includes an extra day’s acclimatization at Shipton’s Camp to get round any altitude issues.

Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route 7 Day Burguret Chogoria Mount Kenya Trek:

The wildest most remote route involves climbing up the little uses Burguret route. The path is barely a game trail in places, the going is tough under foot but the rewards of solitude and wilderness camping are hard to beat. This is definitely one for the more intrepid trekkers.

The Weather and When to Go Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route?

First things first, although Mount Kenya is on the equator, at an altitude of 4,000m it gets freezing at night! You need to be prepared for overnight temperatures well below freezing (a good three/four season sleeping bag is a must). Minus 10 or even minus 20 degrees C are not unheard of at Point Lenana. Otherwise expect plenty of hot overhead sun and rain if you are trekking during the short or long rains.

Kenya is subject to two rainy seasons, the long rains from mid-March to mid-June and the short rains from September to October. Mount Kenya remains trekkable throughout the year, but during the long rains especially, you will need to be prepared for some heavy rainfalls and muddy tracks. The good news is that even in the depth of the long rains, there is usually reliable sunshine for a good portion of the day (10am – 3pm). Outside the rainy season, you can expect plenty of sunshine. (back to top)

How to get to Mount Kenya Trekking Safari Route

From Nairobi, Mount Kenya is around a 4 hours’ drive. There are good paved roads all the way to the towns at the foot of the mountain, but the last stretch of road up to the park gates is a rough dirt road that can get almost impassable in the rainy season, when a 4wd is essential.

Trekking Mount Kenya: Independent or Guided?

The park authorities do not allow trekkers to enter the park alone, so there will need to be two of you. You’ll need to be prepared to bring all your own gear and provisions. The biggest challenge you will find is navigation on the mountain. Paths are not clearly marked and cloud cover is common. If you don’t want to lug camping equipment, then there are huts all the way on the Sirimon route. If you do choose to do it on your own, don’t expect to be popular with the locals, as it deprives them of work.

Masai Mara Balloon Safari

Masai Mara Balloon Safari is one of the most magically memorable of the Mara experiences. Masai Mara Balloon Safari allows you to drift in silence above the splendor of the plains, dip down to visit the hippo pools of the Mara River. Masai Mara Balloon Safari enjoys a bird’s eye view of the wildlife theatre enacted below and descend to a scenic champagne breakfast cooked on the balloon’s burners, and served on the savannah plains. To get a bird’s eye view of the Mara and go Hot Air Ballooning, it is great fun.

The Masai Mara Balloon Safari trip is magical: spend about one hour silently floating over the Savannah in a hot air balloon and it will fill you with enough memories to last a lifetime. You take off in the wee hours of the morning, float in the sky, drifting with the whim of the wind, overlooking the plains, just in time to experience a breathtaking sunrise and catch a bird’s eye view of the reserve.

Hot air balloon rides are exhilarating in any setting. A hot air balloon safari over Masai Mara National Reserve, though, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Masai Mara Balloon Safari flights need to be pre-arranged by your trip representative to ensure guaranteed availability due to the limited space of only 16 passengers in a balloon. The balloons can accommodate adults and children, with some limitations.

Awakened by an early-morning cup of tea (around 5.30 am) you will be driven to the balloon take-off point, where you will meet your fully-qualified balloon pilot. The Masai Mara Balloon Safari trip is magical: spend about one hour silently floating over the Savannah in a hot air balloon and it will fill you with enough memories to last a lifetime. Masai Mara Balloon Safari takes off in the wee hours of the morning, float in the sky, drifting with the whim of the wind, overlooking the plains, just in time to experience a breathtaking sunrise and catch a bird’s eye view of the reserve. After the flight, you will be treated to a luxurious breakfast to complete the experience as you relax and absorb the moment.

Masai Mara Balloon Safari offers Hot Air Balloon Safaris over the river, plains and forests of the Masai Mara. The adventure begins just before dawn. Departure is from a perfect natural launch site and flames from the hot air balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. The first pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies as the hot air balloon fills, then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the rainbow-colored canopy, you’re off for a wildlife viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective. What amazes most first-time balloonists is the absolute stillness: the silence as you float above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the Masai Mara.

Even if you’ve flown elsewhere, Masai Mara Balloon Safari is a unique experience. The flight lasts an hour or so, drifting wherever the air currents take you, and with ample opportunities for photography and video filming. Then your Masai Mara Balloon Safari finishes with a flourish. In the time honored tradition of balloon flights the world over, you toast your return to earth with a delicious breakfast (complete with sparkling wine), cooked wherever you land. The Balloon Safari ends with a game drive on your way back to the Camp. We also offer Hot Air Balloon Safaris for those staying at other select Masai Mara camps.

Best of all, hot air balloons fly over areas of the reserve that are restricted to safari vehicles! During your flight, even the altitude of your balloon flight is different – sometimes, you rise high above the plains so you can see for miles while at other times, you remain closer to earth, giving you close-up views of the animals. We can arrange hot air ballooning in Masai Mara for all guests staying either in the reserve or in private conservancies; though, pickup times do vary depending on the distance from the launch site. Private hot air balloon safaris can also be arranged for multi-generation families and small groups during their bush holiday, and a discounted rate may be available depending on your month of travel.

Experience the beauty of the Masai Mara on a hot air balloon flight. Your altitude may vary from treetop height or lower, which offers a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities, to 300 metres ( 1 000 feet), showcasing the vastness of the panorama. Sweep your eyes across the panoramic plains and discover the fantastic features unfolding before you, with an abundance of gentle undulating hills, sparkling rivers and verdant grasslands.

Dotted in between this lush terrain you can spot the heads of gentle giraffe foraging from the top of leafy trees, slumbering elephants swaying in the cool breeze, graceful gazelles leaping through the vast expanse and pods of hippos splashing in the water. Probe further and you may see prowling predators stalking across the savanna.
Our balloon rates start from as low as US$450 per person. Please note rates may vary based on

Kenya Bird Watching Safari Package sites

Arabuko-Sokoke Forest

Arabuko-Sokoke Forest is located just a short distance from the Kenyan coast near Watamu and Malindi, so bird lovers can spend their mornings walking along white sand beaches and their afternoons exploring the dense forest for birdlife. The forest offers a phenomenal ornithological safari in Kenya. Birding International notes, the forest as the second most important of all of Africa’s forest for avi-fauna conservation. Of the over 230 recorded species, nine are considered globally threatened, including the black and yellow clarke’s weaver, sokoke scops-owl and the multi-colored east coast akalat, to name only some of the endangered species in the forest.

Africa Wildebeest Migration

The Africa Wildebeest Migration, is one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World” and Africa Wildebeest Migration is also known as The World Cup of Wildlife. If there is a safari you should go on, Africa Wildebeest Migration has it be it. The Maasai Mara and the Serengeti National Park together form what no other reserve or park in Africa can! It is incredible, it is magical, it is indescribable and it is a must see event! Africa’s Wildebeest Migration. It’s an endless loop of hooves and horns, hope and heartbreak encompassing Africa’s Serengeti and Masai Mara – countless creatures in thrall to the rains and new grass.

Africa Wildebeest Migration is the world’s greatest wildlife migration, featuring wildebeest and thousands of zebra and gazelle, happens every year in East Africa. One of the most sought-after travel experiences, viewing the great migration is a truly unique opportunity to see the power of nature at work, plus get a firsthand look at some of the most magnificent creatures on Earth.
Africa Wildebeest Migration, every year, around 1.5 million wildebeest; 350,000 Thomson’s gazelle; 200,000 zebras; and thousands of eland and other ungulates (hoofed animals) participate in what has been called ‘the greatest show on Earth’, The Great Africa Wildebeest Migration. Around March, at the end of the short dry season, the grassy plains of the southernmost Serengeti begin to dry out and the wildebeest move on, heading towards the western woodlands of Masai Mara.

“The Migration is truly one of the wonders of the animal world; a million and more animals playing out their lives in the Serengeti Eco-system, watched all the way by lions, hyenas and crocodiles looking for a cheap dinner. Highlights to plan your trip around are seeing them calving in the short-grass Savannah of the southern Serengeti (February and March), crossing the perilous Grumeti and Mara rivers (July and August), or simply watching them on the move (in the Masai Mara from July to September, and the Serengeti the rest of the year). This is compelling natural theatre at its best.

The Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem

The Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem is a region of Eastern African equatorial Savannah, situated in northern Tanzania and south-western Kenya and totaling approximately 30,00 km sq. The area comprises the adjoining Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, and Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, along with a number of bordering Tanzanian conservation areas and game reserves including the Maswa Game Reserve, the Loliondo Game Controlled Area, the Grumeti Reserve and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

When planning Africa Wildebeest Migration safari to Serengeti or Masai Mara, it is highly important to understand the best place to be based at any point of time during Serengeti safari. The Wildebeest and Zebra basically move in a huge anti-clockwise direction. While June is a good time to around the Grumeti River, July/August/September/ sometimes even October is better to be in the Masai Mara.

The Africa Wildebeest Migration Starts

Around December each year, the Africa Wildebeest Migration starts to move into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, where the plains are rich in nutritious grass, providing the herds with the best conditions for raising their newborn calves. Although there is no real beginning or end to this Africa Wildebeest Migration circuit – other than birth and death – it seems reasonable to call the wildebeests’ birthing season the start of the migration. Around February, the herds are on the short-grass plains that spread over the lower northern slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater highlands and around Olduvai Gorge. Some 400,000 calves are born here within a period of two to three weeks. That is approximately 8,000 new calves every day!

After bearing their young in February and March, the Africa Wildebeest Migration herds begin to drift north, drawing with them thousands of zebra and smaller groups of antelope. The abundance of vulnerable calves means the surrounding predators also spring into action. Gradually, the movement gathers momentum and, by the end of May, the Africa Wildebeest Migration are starting to mass in the Serengeti’s Western Corridor. They grow in numbers, with huge herds forming along the pools and channels of the Grumeti River, which they have to cross in order to continue on their journey. This may not be as spectacular as the famous Mara crossings, but there are still enough wildebeest to provide the Grumeti crocs with a veritable feast.

By August, the Africa Wildebeest Migration herds have faced the challenge of crossing the Mara River and are spread throughout Kenya’s northern region and the Serengeti. In years when the river is in full flow, the panic and confusion at the crossings – combined with waiting predators and surging currents – can cause massive loss of life. But, even in years of relatively gently flowing water, the crocs take their toll – not to mention the lions and other large predators that patrol the banks, ready to ambush any wildebeest that make it to the other side. There is no single crossing: At some spots, there are just a few individuals, while others see a mass of animals moving without break for hours.

By October Africa Wildebeest Migration, the chaos has ended and the Africa Wildebeest Migration columns begin moving southwards to complete the cycle. After the East African short rains in late October and early November, the wildebeest move down from Kenya and into the eastern limits of the Serengeti. By December, they are spread throughout the southern reaches.
By the early months of the new year, the grasses in the deep south of the Serengeti are lush with rain. This draws the herds – not only of wildebeest, but also hundreds of thousands of zebra and other plains animals. The cycle continues as the calving season starts once more and the herds begin their slow movements northwards.

Africa Wildebeest Migration facts

Wildebeest facts: Why does the Great Migration occur & why do the Wildebeest Migrate?
The wildebeest migrate around the Serengeti, and into the Masai Mara for the sole purpose of following the rainfall. For their calving from December – March they always begin their cycle in the Southern Serengeti area of Ndutu and follow wherever the grass is greener… Whilst we have a good idea of where the Africa Wildebeest Migration should be at any given time of year, it really does depend on where the rain falls. The wildebeest are notoriously unreliable, as although they generally all head from south to north Serengeti and back around again, they often zig-zag along the way, making it sometimes impossible to predict where the big herds will be at any given time.

The type of Migration the Africa Wildebeest Migration make

The migration undertaken by the wildebeest is an annual event which sees one and a half million wildebeest accompanied by hundreds of thousands of zebras and numerous other antelope species as they search for pastures greener. The animals follow a clockwise movement through the Serengeti following the rains for the lushest of grass. The five hundred kilometers is fraught with danger with many predators such as lions, cheetahs and crocodiles preying on the animals. Africa Wildebeest Migration is a truly amazing spectacle.

Although we do our best to be as informative as possible, it really always is best to give us a call and chat to an expert who can give you the low-down on where the wildebeest are right now.
When does the Great Wildebeest Migration happen in Tanzania and when is the wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara, Kenya?

Throughout the entire year, the wildebeest herds are always in Tanzania. For a short time of the year some of the herds are in Kenya. This time period is from July – October when the wildebeest are always crossing the Mara River in Tanzania between Kogatende and the Lamai wedge (the land between the Mara River and the border to Kenya). The herds are sometimes crossing the Mara river from one side of the Masai Mara to the other (all in Kenya). So the famous river crossings are most likely to be seen in Tanzania. Tanzania also has far fewer tourists on any one crossing, so we would always recommend basing yourself in northern Serengeti as opposed to the Masai Mara to catch the wildebeest crossing the Mara River.

Birders should check out the Tsavo East National Park. The park is home to over 500 easy-to-spot birds species. Carry your camera with you for this is the only park that offers you a rare sighting of some of the continent’s unique birds such as the golden-breasted starling, vulturine Guinea fowl, Somali ostrich, Rosy-patched bush shrike, black-headed lapwing, eastern chanting goshawk, and the red-winged lark.

The most exciting co part of it all is that birding can be done all year long. The November to April period is, however, of particular interest to us. The number of birds is particularly significant during this six-month period; this is mainly due to a large number of migratory birds that make their way into the park. You might, however, experience a strain on your bird watching activities due to the short and long rains experienced during the period.
