Winter in Africa – Kenya
It is winter. Snow in Africa. While the highest summits of Africa are covered with eternal snow, East Africa down on the ground sighs under the blazing sun. East Africa is now full of life. This is the time of year when many animals have offspring.
In the Northern area of Samburu the rare gerenuk is found, the reticulated giraffe and the Grevy’s zebra.
Olive baboons with their infants are making the trees unsafe.
Whilst a large elephant bull prepares to charge, the herd with the playful juveniles follows the riverbed that now is almost dry.
Vervet monkeys make short work of fruit cocktails kindly offered to them by tourists.
Impalas are fighting vigorously to protect their territory. Oryx have offspring and a waterbuck makes serious efforts to mount a hind. Brothers cheetah are followed on their hunt. As well as the millions of flamingos, Nakuru is known for the white rhino, the shy Colobus monkey and the waterbuck. The Masai Mara sets the stage for a pride of lions defending their prey.
The film shows unique events during winter, when East Africa experiences an abundance of wildlife. The large maternity home in February.
