20 Funniest moments from the Wild

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Fact: Life is so much better when you laugh, and there are enough reasons in the wild laughing. Safaris are not only good for learning all the interesting facts about animals and just how amazing mother nature is, but they also provide a chance to capture some of the most beautiful, astonishing, sometimes frightening; and if you are really lucky, funniest shots of animals; because really, no one has a more quirky sense of humor than Mother Nature.

Serena Hotels properties are located in some of the leading national parks, conservancies and reserves in Eastern Africa providing the perfect locations to capture animals at their best and in this case funniest moments. We look at 20 of the funniest wildlife photos taken by some of our game drive guides and guests.

10. “Phillipe petit has nothing on us” @Nairobi National Park

KENYA, Nairobi: A pair of little bee-eaters hang from the branch of a bush in Nairobi National Park, 17 May, 2015. Adjacent to the Kenyan capital and the East African regional aviation hub, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi is the only metropolis in the world that has a National Park right next the city limits and where the big game of Africa, including lion, leopard, buffalo, black rhino, giraffe, hippo and a wealth of birdlife can be viewed in the wild a mere 20mins drive from the city centre and the airport. Another unique feature of the park is that Nairobians, tourists or even transit air travellers have the option of spending just a few hours, a half or full-day in the park due to its close proximity to the Kenyan capital, or even reside overnight inside the park at Nairobi Tented Camp.

13. “There is strength in numbers” @The Maasai Mara

KENYA, Ol Kinyei, Maasai Mara: In a photograph taken by the Ministry of East African Affairs, Commerce and Tourism (MEAACT) 14 June 2015, a herd of Wildebeest stand on the plains of the Ol Kinyei Conservancy in Kenya's Maasai Mara. The management of Ol Kinyei and similar conservancies bordering the Maasai Mara National Reserve and in other areas of Kenya is an alternative approach to wildlife conservation. The land on which the conservancies are located is leased from local communities who directly benefit from its use to naturally host and protect wildlife populations. The privately owned and managed conservancies also offer employment to members of these communities and further opportunity of training in different areas of expertise from guides and trackers to chefs and camp management. Strict regulation of visitor numbers and the construction of camps inside the conservancies also limit the amount of people and vehicles present at any given time, offering tourists a much more personal and exclusive wildlife safari experience while at the same time reducing stress on and the disturbance of wildlife populations, which quickly begin to return and repopulate areas and land transformed under the conservancy model.
