Mw Blog June 2017

The majority of the herd populations of the wildebeest migration are now sitting from Nyaruboro through to the western corridor and Grumeti River region. They are feeding on some good, fresh grass shoots which will keep them busy for another couple of weeks—and then up they will pop again, pouring more consistently back down across the Mara River. The endless cycle of migrating takes it's toll—especially at river crossings—with predators never ceasing their attack, disease and injury. But the population remains constant and for the most part incredibly well fed and healthy. Mother Nature is magical!

When you ask someone what they would like to see when they get to Africa, the majority of responses would have something to do with 'an African sunset or 'to see elephants'. Well Tarangire has them both, and in extremely high proportions during the dry season of June—October each year. There is nothing so special as parking to overlook Silalei Swamp to watch the herds meander, feed and play there way across tall green grasses and seasonal muddy puddles. It's a delight. And with the clear skies of the dry season, the African sun burns at its best—full blazing glory as it sinks below another day. But don't forget, Tarangire is a gem at any time of the year—a more remote park and often under-rated, humbs up for a fabulous wildlife safari experience.

Through it's immersion projects via Nasikia Connect, Nasikia Camps has proudly joined forces with an excellent conservation initiative operated run by the Frankfurt Zoological Society. The society tirelessly works to manage and protect wildlife in the Serengeti. De-snaring the Serengeti one snare at a time, park ranger patrol teams are trained to disable and destroy snares by identifying and removing poacher traps from the national park. For every night's stay at Kaskaz Mara Camp in northern Serengeti, Nasikia Camps donates $1 to this important program. Kaskaz Mara Camp, and Nasikia Camps as a whole, truly care for the future of wildlife in protected areas that they work in.

The thrill of the wind whistling by as you are on the prowl ooking for exciting game viewing from an open vehicle—you can't beat it! You can see so far, so clearly and so easily. The smell of the grass, the water, the animals is an excitement that is difficult to parallel in other facets of our lives. Nasikia Camps has two styles of open vehicle—The Thrill Seeker: the open vehicle andcruiser with high top canvas shade, fully open with windscreen down, and the Photographer's Dream: the open vehicle landrover open to all the elements—equipped with gimbal, bean bags, charging, storage and more. Once you climb up into one of these beauties, you will never want to go home to the family car again
