9 Lion Facts You Should Know

            A Complex Social Structure

    Lions live in large groups called prides, similar to wolves (but not most other cat species). A pride consists of multiple related females and their dependent offspring along with two or three unrelated males. A typical pride has about 15 members, although some prides as large as 40 members have been observed.

            Second Largest Big Cat

    A male lion weighs about 500 pounds and grows to eight feet in length. It sounds impressive, but tigers are actually larger, reaching 850 pounds and 11 feet long.

            Lions Don’t Live in the Jungle

    Even though lions are known as “King of the Jungle,” they live in grasslands and plains – not the jungle. Also unusual in the animal kingdom, female lions do the hunting (usually in groups) while male lions stay home and watch over the pride. The males, however, are first to eat when the female lions come home with their kill.

Gay Lions spotted in Masai Mara National Reserve

The Kenya`s Masai Mara National Reserve is at it again, this time not for being the most adventurous national reserve in the world but for a strange discovery of a gay lions, yes you heard me right, gay lions.

• Two male lions were spotted having an intimate moment in Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve.
• A bizarre and uncommon sexual encounter between two male lions was captured in Kenya's Incredible Maasai Mara National Reserve.
The two lions were spotted by wildlife photographer, Paul Goldstein, in a secluded bush area cuddling and mounting each other.
Looking for privacy?

“I have heard of this happening in Botswana but with nothing like this vigour, and indeed at various zoos and safari parks, but incarcerated animals will do strange things, who can blame them," said Mr. Goldstein.

About the Mountain Gorilla

There are only several hundred mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and about half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa.
Conservation
These gorillas live on the green, volcanic slopes of Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo—areas that have seen much human violence from which the gorillas have not escaped unscathed.
Many conservation initiatives are meant to aid mountain gorillas, and it is believed that their numbers may be steady or slowly increasing. Still they continue to face major threats from habitat loss and poaching.
Alpha Males and Social Behavior
Mountain gorillas have longer hair and shorter arms than their lowland cousins. They also tend to be a bit larger than other gorillas.
Gorillas can climb trees, but are usually found on the ground in communities of up to 30 individuals. These troops are organized according to fascinating social structures. Troops are led by one dominant, older adult male, often called a silverback because of the swath of silver hair that adorns his otherwise dark fur. Troops also include several other young males, some females, and their offspring.

Travel information

Travel Information

The incredible diversity of landscapes, cultures, wildlife and activities mean endless opportunities for visitors to East Africa. Kenya and Tanzania offer a diverse range of environments all within relatively close proximity to one another, and have an excellent domestic travel infrastructure. Kenya and Tanzania's rich diversity of wildlife means that no two experiences in the wild are ever the same. Visitors to Kenya and Tanzania can experience and see completely different things. In a single trip to Kenya and Tanzania, you can visit tropical forests, beautiful beaches, and deserts, climb mountains and explore the wild. In Kenya and Tanzania, it is possible to plan a safari that blends adventure and relaxation, luxury and natural simplicity, social experiences and solitude

 

Best Time to Visit Kenya
The dry season is considered the best season to visit Kenya. Animals clustered around water points are easily visible through the dry grass and short savanna. In addition, all roads are passable. Thus, most tourists visit from December to March and July to August, while the locals prefer the months of June, September and October as they are quieter. During July and August Masai Mara hosts massive herds of wildebeest that migrate from the Serengeti plains in search of new pastures where they will stay for a few weeks before returning to the Tanzania. 

What to take when traveling in East Africa.

What to take when traveling in East Africa

Always try and pack as little as possible as you will regret carrying a heavy bag/backpack, especially if you are going to have to walk some distances. Don't be tempted to bring too many clothes, I guarantee that half of them you won't wear.

What you pack all depends on whether you are going on a two-week holiday, long journey spanning across several countries, the time of year you are traveling and how you are traveling.  

Image result for travel bags

Choosing your Suitcase, Bag or Backpack (Rucksack)

If you are going on an organized Safari you may be limited to baggage size you can take on your safari vehicle - so check first with .US

If you are traveling independently it is advisable that you take a backpack (Rucksack) rather than a suitcase - you may have to walk distances to find accommodation etc. and a backpack will make life a lot easier.

Top loader backpacks can be a real pain when you want something quickly that has wormed its way to the bottom, fully opening backpacks (with a zip going all round) are much better for accessing the contents of your bag and when fully open can be used as storage, no need to unpack!

Make sure snaggy straps can be stowed in a pouch on the bag (especially when going in the baggage hold of aircraft) and the lining has a degree of waterproofing or comes with a cover, maybe have a large plastic bag available so that you can place the rucksack in it if required. On bus roofs bags can get wet when it rains.

Watch out for metal zips, we have had bags become impossible to open/close after a few weeks at the beach, the salt will cause the zip to corrode and stick (smear Vaseline on the zip to free it up). Plastic zips are fine as long as they actually have teeth (bigger the better), the loop type plastic zips are prone to coming apart under pressure. Broken zips are the number one reason for ditching a bag, give them a good try before you buy.

Make sure that it is the right size or a good strong make and sits comfortably on your back.

Having a small shoulder bag for your more valuable items means you can keep them with you.
