Wild Animals You Will Probably See While On Your Kenya Safari

Wild animals possibly seen while on Kenya safari – Kenya is one of the best countries to go for a safari to see wildlife roaming in their natural habitat, with amazing landscapes, pristine coastline beaches, friendly people ready to show you around. A visit to Kenya is worth your time and money as you will get to experience wilderness in its true shape with lots of memories to take back home.

With diverse wild animals and birds, a Kenya safari to most of the national parks or game reserves will let you encounter with the Big Five; Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Leopard and Buffalo among other predators and grazers. Here is a list of wildlife that you will probably see with enjoying your Kenya Safari.

1. African Cape Buffalo

Considered one of the most dangerous among the big five; Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Leopard and Buffalo. African Cape Buffalo can be found on almost all national parks, game reserves and wildlife conservancies in Kenya. It’s loved by lions as they cannot run fast.

2. Giraffe

The tallest mammal in earth whose height is five times of an adult human being. Giraffes are a beautiful sight to see with your naked eyes. They are of 3 species which can all be found in Kenya’s different national parks and game reserves; Masai Giraffe, Reticulated Giraffe and Rothschild Giraffe. You can spot the Masai Giraffe in most of the parks. The Reticulated Giraffe is mostly found in Laikipia Conservancies and Samburu-Shabba National Reserve; Northern Kenya. The Rothschild, an endangered species of Giraffe, can be found in Lake Nakuru National Park and also in Nairobi’s Giraffe Centre in Karen.

3. Zebra

One of the beautiful wild animals found in most of the Kenya’s attraction sites, Zebra are of two species; the Plain Zebra with broad, widely spaced stripes which are generally browner in females and get black in stallions and the Grevy’s Zebra with bat ears, its narrow, close-set stripes and unstripped belly. The plain Zebra are common in most of the parks while the Grevy’s Zebra are only found in the north-eastern Part of Kenya’s conservancies and reserves. Grevy’s Zebra can sometimes be found together in groups with Plain Zebra. Lions, hyenas and hunting dogs are all capable of killing both adult and young zebras, while leopards and sometimes cheetahs take foals. Zebras are capable of delivering a bone-crushing kick to predators.

4. The African Lion

Feared by both wild animals and human beings, known as the king of the jungle, the larget of the predators who is among the Big Five, Lion is one of the majestic and brave animals found in Kenya’s wilderness. A Kenya safari will not be complete without sighting a lion. Kenya’s Masai Mara hosts many prides of lions. Black-manned lions can also be found in Masai Mara. Most of the national parks and game reserves hosts lions.

5. Impala

A commonly seen, medium sized antelope in most of Kenya’s national parks and game reserves. The males have lyre shaped horns while females don’t have horns at all. A tuft of black hair on the lower part of the hind legs above the hooves is the site of a scent gland. During daytime impala are at most active in the early mornings and late afternoon. Can be seen in herds of 6-100 individuals which move in their large home range. When alarmed, they take flight in a series of spectacular bounding jumps and are capable of leaping 10 feet in air and an incredible 36 feet in breadth.

6. The African Elephant

Unmistakable the largest land mammal who is highly social, living in family units consisting of a number of related adult females and their calves in group of 10-15 individuals. Led by an old female known as the matriarch. A visit to Amboseli national park will surely be worth your time and money seeing these gentle giants traversing the plains feeding, wallowing and rubbing against trees or boulders. Tsavo East hosts red-dust elephants, an effect of wallowing on the red sand of Tsavo. Your first encounter with elephants will surely be a sight to reckon.

7. Rhinoceros

One of the big five, Rhino are of two species; the white and black rhinoceros. They are among the endangered wildlife species due to being poached for their horns believed to be medicinal. White Rhinos are more social than the black rhinos. Mostly found in single or female with a young one. Adult males are generally solitary and territorial. White rhinos can be seen at Nairobi National Park, Lake Nakuru National Park and Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Masai Mara is known to host large numbers of hippo in the Mara River and Mara Talek.

9. Cheetah

The fastest wild animal on earth that can run at a maximum speed of 70mph (112kph). Cheetahs are easily distinguished from Leopards by distinct black ‘tear-marks’ running from the inner corners of their eyes to the edges of their mouth. Cheetahs hunt medium -sized and small antelopes particularly the Thomson’s Gazelles and Impala. A Kenya safari to the Masai Mara Game reserve will probably gift you with the sightings of cheetahs. You can also sight cheetahs at Amboseli, Tsavo and Samburu.

10. Wildebeests / Gnus

It has spots and bards across its chest; spots on the torso and upper limbs form a rosettes. Leopards are less frequently seen than cheetahs.

The spotted hyena posses the strongest jaws of all land predators, equipped with extra-ordinarily powerful molar teeth for crushing bones. They are the most abundant large mammalian predator in Africa. The stripped hyaena are rare than the spotted hyaena and are smaller in size. The aardwolf looks very similar to a stripped hyaena but is smaller and primarily insectivorous.

Tommies are very fast, reaching speeds of up to 50 mph (80kph). They are commonly preyed by cheetahs, leopards and hunting dogs.
