Masai Mara National Reserve

masai-mara-kenya

Masai Mara is one of the greatest Wildlife reserves in Africa and it is located in south-west Kenya. Masai Mara National Reserve with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania forms Africas most diverse, amazing & most spectacular Eco-system and possibly the worlds top safari friendly Eco-system. Masai Mara National Reserve covers an area of 1,510 sq km and it is located at 1,617 meters above sea level. Add the private conservancies and the area is at least twice the size. Masai Mara hosts over 95 species of mammals & over 570 species of birds. Masai Mara National Reserve has one of the largest densities of lion in the world

Wildebeest Migration:

The wildebeest migration is the annual natural relocation of vast numbers of the wildebeest, joined by large numbers of zebra, and smaller numbers of Thomsons gazelle, Grant’s gazelle, and Impala. Wildebeest migration takes place every year and it is highly predictable. They migrate throughout the year, constantly seeking better water resources & fresh grazing land. July to October is the best time to be in Kenya for it.

Accommodation:

Wide range of hotels & resorts are available in and around the Masai Mara & the conservancies surrounding it. Restricted numbers of vehicles are allowed in the conservancies surrounding the Masai Mara National Reserve

Distance:

Masai Mara National Reserve is about 270 kilometer from Nairobi (Capital) and takes approximately 40-45 minutes by flight & 4-5 hours by road. The road is in great condition for the most part. You may have to travel on dirt road from Narok town to Sekenani Gate but condition of that road is fairly good. The other road through Lemek and Aitong town is very bumpy and not good at all for driving.

Best Time To Visit:

Wildebeest migration takes place in JULY to OCTOBER which is best time to see this amazing animal migration. Although, Wildebeest Migration is not guaranteed through Masai Mara, it has yet to let us down. December to February is great time for big cats. As land gets dryer, water sources become limited and big cats can easily catch their prey near those water sources. Good opportunity for tourists and wildlife photographers to capture those moments.

Recommended Number of Days:

We recommend at least 3-4 days for Masai Mara safari. If you are interested in wildlife photography then the longer you stay the more chance of getting the ultimate snap.

What should you do when you encounter a Tiger on foot in his territory?

What should you do when you encounter a Tiger on foot in his territory?

First of all, let me warn everyone that a Tiger is an impeccable slaughtering machine. So, the most ideal approach to fight him is, not to fight him. This is a note from some individuals past encounters and knowledge of local people who occasionally meet the Tiger on foot in their own backyard. It is quite possible that on your wildlife safari occasion, you may likewise encounter a Tiger by walking accidentally and unintentionally.
This can happen to anyone in national park. Generally, the national parks of India don’t have any fence or dividers. The Tigers roam in and around the national parks in search of food and to mark their territory. They come out of their home to visit the vicinity of the villages where majority of the resorts are established.

What to do when you encounter a Tiger on foot?

Tigers are generally not interested in human beings. It is frequently seen that he will leave the trail in the event that he hears or sees you on a similar trail. Having said this, it doesn’t mean that you toss the alert to the breezes. In some cases, a Tiger would do a mock charge to threat you, i.e. Tiger will come half way fully charging, then suddenly stop, turn around, and run away. These are serious and life-threatening situations. Hence, it is best to be alert & prepared. Note down following points in case if you encounter a Tiger on foot.

Stay calm

In case, if you encounter a Tiger first then stay calm and control your breathing speed. You can easily get nervous, but your stillness when he notices you is your major chance of escape from that situation. If he hasn’t seen you, then remain calm, wait for him to move on, and you later move in the different direction. Saving yourself should be the only motive and avoid being foolishly macho. Your anxiety or one wrong step can encourage tiger to attack you.

Pray

Regardless of whether you are a believer or a nonbeliever of god, there is no better time than this to praying. It will at least give you the courage to face the situation.

Stand up tall when you encounter a Tiger on foot

If you are sitting on the trail, gradually stand up and stand tall. The Tiger must know you are human being and should not mistake you as his prey animal. Tigers typically attack their prey from back especially when they appear to be sitting. He will consider you as a small prey animal and attack you. By standing tall, you are showing him that you are a human and not his natural prey.

Signs that a Tiger is annoyed with you

If the Tiger is angry with you, he will indicate it by a snarl, or he may take a stalking position. What is a stalking position? Fundamentally, before a Tiger assaults, he crouches, his ears move back, he freezes, concentrates on his prey, snarls, and attack. If tiger is taking that position, then you should start backing up. You should not show your back to him, rather gradually and relentlessly just back up. Continue backing off gradually until the Tiger is well out of sight.

Never run

Never run when you accidentally encounter a Tiger on foot. Tigers are naturally trained to chase anything running and kill.

Climb a Tree

If there is a tall tree nearby and the Tiger is far enough, and you know how to climb a tree instantly, then you can go ahead. Make sure you reach at-least 15 feet above the ground, as Tigers can jump up to 15 feet comfortably above ground level. So climb quickly, else does not attempt.
If you encounter a Leopard or a Sloth Bear then climbing the tree is not an option as they both are master in climbing, especially Leopard.

Make noise

If you have some metal or anything which can make noise, do it. But do this only after you are sure that the Tiger has made up his mind to attack you. In case, if you have nothing to make noise, and Tiger is charging, then shout as loud as possible.

Fight if you have no choice

When other options don’t work for you and you have no option left but to fight with Tiger, and when a Tiger charges and jumps at you, do the following:

Get as close as possible to Tiger when he attacks you.

Embrace him tight. Try not to give him any breathing space. Embracing a Tiger can surprise him. All carnivores prefer distance. Tigers don’t like physical closeness and try to avoid physical contact. Even Tigers fighting with each other keep distance from each other. At first, they would slap each other, and wait to take a bite and choke the jugular vein on the neck of his opponent. So, keep your neck away from his jaw.

It is your weapon vs his canines & claws

Whatever you can pick and hit the tiger, can be your ultimate weapon at that situation. You can pick rock, branch, stick, and use it to protect yourself from him.
Keep in mind that his weapons are his canines & claws; you must stay away from them. Your weapon is whatever you get or have in hand. With his weapons he can brutally injure you. Generally, Tigers avoid fights. But if they involve in fighting, they will definitely go for the kill, until and unless they are surprised by your behavior. In that situation, they simply want to get away.
Continue shouting and be as close as possible to him. Avoid his fatal bite, as not only it can kill you, but also give you some fatal infection as his canines have lot of bacteria.
Hit the Tiger on his weak spots like eyes and nose. Strike it & strike it hard
If there is a lake or a river, do not get into it to save yourself. Tigers are incredible swimmers, and will out pace you much sooner that you think.

Let me remind you again, the most ideal approach to fight the tiger is, not to fight tiger.

With prayers from me that you never face a Tiger on foot in his territory

Safety measures to take while staying in a resort near a national park

Safety measures to take while staying in a resort near a national park

Staying in a jungle resort while on wildlife holiday is always a great fun, however for a comfortable and hassle free experience one must take care of himself and his group. There are numerous safety measures to take while staying near a national park. Some are listed below.
First and foremost – Avoid going towards the forest on foot or in a vehicle if it is prohibited area. There are gates from where all sightseer’s vehicles enter. Utilize just the approved entryways to enter at the given time with a valid permit to enter the park. Avoid entering from any other area in the protected areas.
If you get caught in a national park without a valid permit, you will attract a jail term and your vehicle will be seized. So kindly don’t think on these lines regardless of what local or a resort person instructs you to.
Never leave the vicinity of the resort alone after sunset. Not even if you plan to just go for a walk after your dinner. After nightfall, Leopards frequently tend to approach the villages and resorts in search of food or the livestock. At night, Tigers also roam around the protected areas. It is not worth taking the risk for little adventure you want to experience.
If you need go out for some urgent work, and have to cross the buffer area of the jungle, don’t go on a two-wheeler. Make sure you are in a car and take someone from the resort or village who are familiar with area, and always carry a torch & communication device for sure. After sunset, driving a two-wheeler in a forested area is a huge risk, especially if the forest has animals like Sloth bears. If it breaks down for some reason, you will be in a trouble. Four-wheeler will at-least offer some protection from the aggressive animals.
In case, if you are in Elephant dominated area, then even a four-wheeler is not advisable at night. It is better to postpone all your work for next day. Wild Elephants can kick your four-wheeler really hard. Hence it is good idea to stay in safe boundary of your resort.
Please do not even consider carrying any weapon even if you possess one. Getting caught with a weapon in forested area is a non bail-able offense and attracts a term of up to 7 years in prison. You can carry a wooden stick while on foot but not any kind of weapons whatsoever even in a safari vehicle.
Be careful when you go in to the bush, there are many species of venomous snakes and scorpions in and around the national parks.

  • Always travel with a standard medical kit, consisting of Imodium for stomach upsets. Make sure to bring your own prescription medicines along with a copy of your prescription. If you get dehydrated due to illness or heat, the 1 tsp salt/8 tsp sugar/1 liter of water ratio combo works a treat.

  • Even in the highest tiger density regions, sighting tigers is not a certain event. Some visitors take a back-to-back safari for a number of days to increase the chances of sighting tigers.
  • Elephant safari is the best choice to get closer to the tigers. Jeep safaris will penetrate deep into the jungle, into the habitation of tigers.
  • Always follow your guide’s instructions while on a safari. This magnificent animal is a well-known carnivorous. Your safety is very important.
  • Absolute silence is needed for tiger spotting. Making unnecessary noises in the safari will scare the animals away.
  • Generally, summers are the best time to see tigers as the water holes will be dried out, forcing tigers to reach out of their habitat to find large water sources. Also, the grasses will be dried out, improving visibility.
