Rapid Poaching of Endangered Rhinos In Laikipia

Rhino Poaching on Increase in Kenya’s Laikipia Private Ranches

Earlier, two rhinos had been poached in two separate incidents over the last one week. The first rhino killing occurred about a week ago in Lewa Conservancy in Isiolo County. The week-old carcass of a pregnant white rhino was discovered on Wednesday, April 11, 2012  with its horn missing. Lewa Conservancy rangers together with Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and police are still investigating the incident.

The second case occurred in Solio Ranch in Laikipia County on Tuesday night April 10, 2012  where a black rhino was killed and the horn taken as well.  A joint KWS and General Service Unit (GSU) security team moved in when gunshots were heard to determine the circumstances of the shooting.

Wildebeest Migration Safaris 2012 in Masai Mara and Serengeti National Parks

The Wildebeest migration takes place in an extremely rich contiguous and self sustaining Masai Mara Serengeti Ecosystem.  The self sustainability has earned it label of the only “true ecosystem” on earth.

 Several  wildebeest migration safaris are organized in both  Maasai (Masai) Mara and Serengeti National Parks.  The duration of the safari depends on various factors but mostly on time and budget but also the flexibility of the guest.
