But as we are talking now, the current government which was popularly elected on a platform of reviving agriculture has given coffee farmers a lot of incentives while at the same time liberalized marketing. This has sent farmers rethinking their strategies and according to statistics and future projections, coffee is just about to reclaim its place in terms of been among the leading income earner to the country’ gross domestic product.

Each year, Mara is the staging ground for the “Great Migration”, one of the awe-inspiring natural events of the world.  .
Its now official. The Mara is an international conservation destination. It’s a verdict that was arrived by a panel of experts and announced in the American broadcasting corporation after many months of research. The wildebeest migrations have now been placed among the 7 new wonders of the world in the same category with The Tibets potala palace, The old Jerusalem city, The polar ice caps of Iceland, The underwater Hawaiian Islands and the Mayan pyramids in Mexico among others.

wildebeet


Watch the wildebeest migrations.
You are visiting Masai mara to see the annual migrations which starts from the month of June and climaxes in the month of August before closing over to Serengeti towards the month of Oct.

What exactly are the wildebeest migrations?
The wildebeest migration is a dramatic story. It takes place within Kenya and Tanzania and is the greatest wildlife show on earth. Between the open plains of Serengeti and the Masai Mara, thousands and thousands of wildebeest and zebras migrate to greener pastures as seasons change and circle of life and death continues. Predators closely follow the wildebeest migrations waiting for an opportunity to strike weak prey as they make their way into different territories.. The most interesting part is when you watch them as they cross the Mara River. The first ones to jump into the river are trampled upon to death by the following multitude. The dead animals become a bridge over which all the other animals cross the river. The crocodiles feed on the remaining carcasses for months.
mara explorerMajority of tourists literally camp in the Mara during this period with their flashy digital cameras. They will trail the migrations and even the members of the big 5 are no longer an interest at this time.  When its time to cross over the river, the tourists will position themselves strategically along the Mara river, trying to get the best shot possible. Others will ride on the hot air balloon to watch the migrations from the skies. To show the implication of this phenomenal show, members of both local and international media also make their way to Mara if only to capture this hot news for interesting reading .  It’s also a common feature in the world travel magazines.  This is a spectacle that should be witnessed at least once in a lifetime.
Masai Mara reserve is one of the most well known parks, which borders Kenya and Tanzania. It is one of the richest wildlife sanctuaries. It is in this very terrain that the annual migration takes place when millions of zebras, wildebeests and gazelles cross the plains below on their way to the rich new grasses of the Serengeti.
You will arrive in time for lunch at the Mara Sopa Lodge
Mara Sopa is a top Lodge property. It is situated on the park’s eastern boarder overlooking some of the most prime game viewing land on the continent.

After lunch you will have an afternoon game drive at the Masai Mara reserve.
Masai Mara reserve is the soul-stirring sense of space that, for some, endures in the memory: the oceans of grassland, cropped and yellow  in the dry season, tall and green after the rains, alluded in the Masai name ‘Mara’ ( spotted land ). For most, however it’s the staggering volume of game that interests them and one of the most well known parks, which borders Kenya and Tanzania. It is one of the richest wildlife sanctuaries. It is in this very terrain that the spectacular annual migration of millions of zebras, wildebeests and gazelles takes place. The animals cross the plains below on their way to the rich new grasses of the Serengeti. This frenzied migration is a must-see, at least once in a lifetime.
Impressive on every conceivable level, the Masai Mara is surely without equal for predators. Trademark blond-maned lions nonchalantly in the shade, solitary cheetahs pace the open plains, hyenas lope and sniff around their subterranean dens-even leopard are seen regularly in specific areas. Smaller plains residents includes the dainty bat eared fox, all three African jackals species and half-a-dozen endemic birds, while punctuating kopjes (granite outcrops) are frequented by the colorful Agama Lizards, scurrying Rock hyrax and dainty klipspringer.
It’s not unusual to see the big 5 in the Masai Mara. The big five are the lion, the leopard, the rhino, the buffalo and the elephant.

naivasha simbaLake Naivasha is a beautiful fresh water lake, fringed by thick papyrus. The lake is almost 13kms across, but its waters are shallow with an average depth of five meters. Lake area varies greatly according to rainfall, with an average range between 114 and 991 sq kms.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Naivasha completely dried up and effectively disappeared. The resulting open land was farmed, until rains a few years later caused the lake to existence, swallowing up the only established estates. 
Afternoon wind and storms can cause the lake to become suddenly rough and produce high waves. For this reason, the local Masai christened the lake Nai’Posha meaning
rough waters which the British later misspell as Naivasha.
The lake and its surrounds are rich in natural bounty, and the fertile soils and water supply have made this one of Kenya’s prime agricultural regions.
The lake is home to 400 species of wonderful bird life and an abundance of fish and water life. Forests of the yellow barked Acacia Xanthophyllous, known as a world class birding destination, surround much of the lake.
The waters of the lake draw a great of game to these shores. Giraffes wander amount the acacia, Buffalo wallow in the swamps and Columbus monkey call from the treetops while the lake region hippo population sleep the day out in the shallows
