The Haven of Wildlife Sanctuaries – Kenya And Botswana Safari

Although there is a large market for competition with other African countries, Kenya still assumes its top place in harboring visitors from all over the world. Much of Kenya is usually deemed as safari, which in turn made it famous.

Even before the birth of other countries to compete for tourist market, Kenya has already emerged as the pioneer. During its discovery, famous people such as President Roosevelt, Prince Edward, Ernest Hemmingway and the likes have already explored the safaris of Kenya. This created a snob appeal though. In a sense, the big people went to Kenya safari because the world expects them to while those who have the resources to travel do because it seemed to be one of the certifications to reach the ‘up society’.

In our modern-day however, Kenya safari is already open for all people who are willing to enjoy wildlife and culture.

Because of its unfailing guarantee to have you experience the big five (namely lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) its fame is unequalled by any other regions who themselves offer other wonders. Kenya ecosystems cover an array of other substantial members of the savanna.

Kenya safari does not only rely its fame on its vast resources for wildlife, it is also known for its kaleidoscopic landscapes which are characterized with highlands, rift valley, grasslands, moonscape at the north and the snow capped, magnificent Mount Kenya.

Considering the over 50 wildlife reserves and national parks, it would be impossible for one visitor to not love any of them. It is off course expected that one cannot visit all them in a single trip. So unless you have all the resources to travel and take the off beaten tracks, it would be best if you would plan your trip well and organize your voyage so you may get the bests of all worlds.

For travelers with limited budget, your best bets would be Amboseli, Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Samburu, Aberdares, and Tsavo. And for those who have time and money, you may explore great laces such as Kakamega Forest, Meru, Marsabit, Mount Elgon, Mount Kenya, and Shimba Hills.

Even with a big budget or low, Maasai Mara is still a definite stop over. This is the place where all filming of wildlife in Kenya are created. This haven of wildlife offers immense varieties of animal species that it would be hard to believe that they are all contained in a single place.

All of these perhaps contribute to the perception that wildlife lovers should and must visit Kenya safaris at least one time in their lives so as to witness a great part of the creation.

Being the world’s largest exporter of diamonds, Botswana no longer has to compete with the tourist market. Yet as grand as its land offers for safari fanatics, it can’t help but attract as many tourists as its resources may allow. However, the government decrees the limited number of people allowed to penetrate Botswana safaris, thus the significant increase in prices, which ultimately made it as an exclusive safari destination.

Kalahari dessert dominates 84% of all Botswana. Though it is a dessert by name, Kalahari is not much like a dessert, as we may perceive Sahara. Except for occasional sand dunes, Kalahari is mostly covered with vegetation characterized by bushes, grasslands, trees and scrubs. However, water is meager thus the dessert label.

Visitors of Botswana safaris are almost always amazed at how creative and genius the creation and maintenance of its wildlife sanctuaries.

The finest games in the whole region are found in the Chobe National Park which is located somewhere in the north east side of the country. It harbors the most varied games in the country and is refuted to nurse the largest group of elephants in a single place. Elephants here are estimated to have reached up to 80,000 individuals.

Savuti Marshes, on the other hand (which is located in the Chobe National Park) is refuted to have the largest density of predators found in all Africa. Hundreds of wildlife species are found here, both preys and predators.

Its resources for water encourages buffalo, antelopes, zebras and the likes that are followed by predators such as the leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, lions, and jackals. Some predators here have the tendency to become lazy and living in Savuti Marshes sounds more like a gift than anything else.

Botswana safari is simply a unique place for wildlife conservation. But this act is took time to accomplish. Botswana is a country that is bordered by neighboring countries. While great efforts and done to protect all its wildlife, it still needs other countries’ collaboration to make everything working. After all, animals do not comprehend international borders.
