Promotional film “WILD KENYA” gives a good picture of what the versatile Kenya has to offer.
Unforgettable events in the safari land par excellence.
Every year, a dramatic spectacle unfolds when more than 1,5 million wildebeest cross the Mara river.
In periods of drought thousands of buffalo gather at the rare drinking places. Big cats seize their chance,
giraffes are neck-fighting and Safari ants go on their way. Topi’s, zebra’s and gnoes defend their territory
Kenya’s most beautiful sites were visited, full of greenery, flowering vegetation and plenty of water.
Far from the usual beaten path.
The journey of exploration is regularly slowed down by thousands of wildebeest. Exciting when crocodile
and hippo infested rivers proved difficult to cross. The AVP crew managed to film the extremely rare naked
mole-rat. We tried to keep away from the fast moving spitting cobra.
Water management, cattle-breeding, ecologically justified laundry share their space with fresh water tortoise.
- Water safaris
Under the watchful eyes of many hippos, fish eagles catch their prey right next to the boat.
African common terns are fed by their parents. The wonderful world seen from the water.
- Walking safaris
Escorted by an experienced Masai guide and armed ranger wild Kenya can be explored by foot.
Elephants, big cats, giraffe and many ungulates will be surprised by the walking intruders.
An unmatched sensation.
- Bird watching
Kenya is famous for its huge variety of birds. Big or small, AVP got them in front of the lens.
Kenyan nature cannot exist without the delicate balance between eating and being eaten. We filmed lions having
their meal, leopards on the hunt, cheetahs making a kill and feeding their cubs. Elephants leave a passing leopard undisturbed. Visitors can expect the unexpected.
- Special features
Visiting orphaned elephants at the “Sheldrick Wildlife Trust” in Nairobi, petting Cheeta’s, holding a sand boa in your hand, controlling a large rock python or be in the cave of the frightful male lions – “the Man eaters from Tsavo” with
an armed ranger ? This and much more can literally come within reach.
The images from “Wild Kenya” are taken from the AVP films “Never Give Up” and “Blue Eyes”.
Fascinating travels, uniquely captured on film by Augustijn Video Productions (AVP).
