Maasai Mara:

Masai Mara and Serengeti form a contiguous ecosystem, the playground of the annual wildebeest migration, the greatest and most spectacular mammal migration on earth. Supporting over 273 herbivores per square kilometer, the Mara boasts of one of the richest assemblage of wildlife in the world. Besides herbivores, the Mara has a large representative of predators-lions, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards. There are no dull moments in Masai Mara.  Nature is always at play. Days are eventful and scenes keep on changing as nature wonderfully unfolds before your eyes.  It is a one in a lifetime too many. At one station it’s a lionesses hunting-the stealth stalking, the adrenalin chase, and the eventual capture or disappearance of the prey. In the far corner is a pair of ostriches walking the plains oblivious of the happenings around.  And in the same breath you notice a pair of cheetahs perched on a rock surveying the plains.  Bird watching is superb with 450 species recorded.  The Marsh lions featured in BBC Big Cats Diary series are found in the Musiara Swamp, in the Musiara sector of the park.  The best time to visit Masai Mara is of course during the annual wildebeest migration Jul-September. 

 

Day03 and Day4-   2013 Masai Mara
Two Days spent in Masai Mara with morning, mid morning and afternoon game drives. Early morning game drives provide the best chance to witness predators hunting. In the mid morning, the scene changes as the often disturbed plain game settle to feed. Feeding times are venerable and animals take caution by maintaining a all round sentry-feeding individuals facing outwards from the centre.  In the afternoons most of the animals will take a siesta under the shade.  Of course all herds will leave several individuals standing to scout for approaching predators.  Occasionally a lone  gazelle will be giving birth at high noon when it is too hot for predators to bother.  All meals and overnight Mara Serena Lodge FB

Encounter with Rwanda gorillas  and tracking tips

Gorilla tracking is a clean practice (eco friendly) which ensures minimal impact to the local community, the environment and the gorillas. Gorilla Tracking rules and regulations have been put in place for the safety of the trackers, the gorillas and to check adverse environmental impacts. Besides these rules and regulations guarantees the continued existence of the gorilla as species, that is to avoid the extinction of the gorillas.

 

1.  Gorilla tracking in Rwanda - Submissiveness

When you encounter gorillas, you are required to portray total submissiveness.   Do not look at them straight in the eyes and avoid standing over them.    If the male gorilla charge at you, crouch down.  Gorillas have freedom of way. Do not drum your chest.

 

2.  Rwanda Gorilla Tracking/ Gorilla  Photography/Photographic Safaris

Flash photography is prohibited.  Tourists are allowed normal photography and filming for domestic use.  Special Photographic and filming safaris may be organized for particular gorilla tracking groups or families. These will include those who want to film specifically for commercial use and documentaries.  These will require accreditation cards unlike normal tourists.

 

3.  Health of the Gorillas

There are currently approximately 700 mountain gorillas in the wild.  Thus these animals are classified as endangered species.  Gorilla tracking if unchecked can endanger the life of gorillas.  Gorilla tracking in Rwanda is restricted to 8 persons per day per group.   That makes a total of 56 permits per day. Read additional rules at  Rwanda gorilla Tracking Rules and Regulations,

  • Avoid tracking gorillas if you suffer from contagious disease.  In case you develop a sever case of flu, your money will be fully refunded if you make this known in advance. However if you attempt to track and       fail for whatever reason, or if the guides discover that you cannot    track due to disease, you do not qualify for any refund. 

  • Do not sneeze towards them

  • Do not spit in the forest or defecate carelessly.  If you need to the guides will help you with a machete to dig a hole to bury your waste. 

4.  Environmental consciousness

Gorilla tracking is a clean activity.  Leave  only your steps in the national park.  Do not litter and if you spot any litter, collect it and take it down with you. Read more on rules @ Gorilla Tracking Rules and Regulations

 

5. Tracking gorilla in Rwanda and Uganda- Gorilla Hiking and Trekking facts

 

How hard should one prepare for gorilla tracking in Rwanda?  The facts below will help you to answer this question.

  • Gorilla Trekking,  hiking and tracking takes place at altitudes of 3000 metres-this means that moderate/ average physical fitness is what is necessary and not athletic fitness.

  • Trekking, hiking and Tracking gorillas is conducted by patient, qualified and knowledgeable ranger guides with wide experience in natural history with particular attention to gorilla behaviour

  • Trekking hiking and tracking is conducted at a moderate pace with plenty of stops for resting, fielding questions further briefs etc.  Competitive hiking is discouraged as the aim of the guides, porters       and rangers is for all the group members to make it to the gorillas      and back to the base.  Believe it or not, the slowest hiker/ trekker     will determine the pace of the trek.

6.  Eating while tracking gorillas

You can carry your picnic but do not eat in the vicinity of the gorillas.

7. Chest beating

Please do not imitate the male gorilla chest beating. It may take that as a challenge and charge after you which can result in severe injuries.

8. Age Limit:  Only people of 15 years and above can track gorillas.
