Unprecedented fortunes continue to flow in Bwindi Impenetrable & Amboseli National Park
Excitements never end in nature’s domain. The influence of Covid 19 has affected the safari industry and global travel at large but the increase of rainfall across East Africa is a blessing in disguise for wildlife.
It started with a baby boom in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park with two gorillas born in two separate groups Mubare and Oruzogo in the same week. The first a baby gorilla from Mubare family located in Buhoma tracking zone was first sighted on July, 22, 2020. The mother of the baby is adult female Nyampazi. The leader of Mubare family is Silverback Maraya. The birth rises the Mubare family size from 8 to 9 members. From the Oruzogo family, an adult female Katoto was found nursing a baby gorilla on July 25, 2020. The birth marked Katoto’s first baby with Kaganga the lead Silverback of the family. The birth raises the total number in the group to 15 in Ruhija tracking zone.
Unprecedented fortunes continue to flow in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Amboseli National Park and Mgahinga National Park. A few days ago, the Nyakagyezi gorilla family of Mgahinga National Park welcomed a new baby and the group has now increased to 9 individuals.
At the time of submitting this blog post, a new member has joined the Mucunguzi Gorilla Family of Rushaga sector and the family is now composed of 12 individuals. The baby is born to mother Ndinkahe. Research has it that Ndinkahe joined the Mucunguzi family from a wild group when she was aged 16.
A couple of weeks ago, Nziza Hospitality joined conservation enthusiasts to celebrate World Elephant Day. Andy Cobley from The Good News Network couldn’t hide his excitement too when broke a story that The Kenya Wildlife Services reported 140 elephants were born in a single calving season including a rare set of twins by Pazia. They are about five and a half months old now.
According to Najib Lalan, cabinet secretary for Tourism and Conservation, Kenya’s Elephant population has more than doubled. Much as African parks are underfunded, it has been a journey of 30 years of hard work to achieve these numbers. A special word of thanks is due to the rangers some who could have lost their lives, conservation partners who work behind the scenes to tame poaching.
The Amboseli National Park is one of the smallest national parks in Africa but big in terms of attractions. Star attractions include hundreds of big- tusked African Elephants, visiting the Maasai community but the biggest draw card is having best views of Africa’s highest peak on snow- capped Mount Kilimanjaro. On safari, the park will cater for all your accommodation needs ranging from moderate to luxury properties with en suite bathroom, adding your Lodge/ Camp to the perfect blend of ancient culture, nature and modern convenience.
