the Wilds of Kenya



Malaika Safaris requested Augustijn Video Productions (AVP) to produce a promotional film. The objective being to express the thorough know-how and wide experience of Malaika Safaris. Judging from the result it is apparent that Malaika Safaris indeed differentiates. Malaika Safaris is more than happy to share their multifacetedness of the total package. Travels, which could not be realized without Marijke Bangert – raised and naturalized in Kenya. With his in depth know-how local driver/guide Julius Wamahiga shows the clients of Malaika Safaris what most visitors of Kenya are missing.


- Action
A drama unfolds. When the migration of well over 1,5 million gnu cross the Mara river. Thousands of buffalo gather at a waterhole. Big cats, neck-fighting of giraffes, armies of Safari ants are on their way. Topi, zebra’s en gnus vigorously defend their territory.


- Nature
The most beautiful spots of Kenya are visited. Many shades of green, flowering vegetation and plenty of water. If you want something off the beaten track.


- Discover
Cautiously traveling over bumpy roads find yourself blocked by thousands of wildebeest. Exciting when rivers infested by crocodiles and hippos are crossed with difficulty. AVP’s film crew discovered and filmed the very rare naked mole rat. Quickly making room for the deadly fast moving black mamba.


Water management, cattle-breeding, ecologically justified laundry amidst rare fresh water tortoise.


- Water safaris
Under the watchful eyes of the many hippos, the fish eagles catch their prey right next to the boat. African common terns are fed by their parents. A wonder world with a view from the water.


- Walking safaris
Escorted by an experienced local guide and armed ranger the wilds of Kenya were explored by foot. Elephants, big cats, giraffe and many ungulates startled by the walking intruders. An unmatched sensation.


- Bird watching
Kenya is famous for its large variety of birds. Big or small. AVP managed to capture a wide variety of them on film.


- Wildlife
Kenyan nature cannot exist without the delicate balance between eating and being eaten. Lions having their meal, leopards hunting, cheetahs making a kill and feeding their cubs. An elephant was left undisturbed by a leopard passing by. Visitors are bound to encounter the unexpected.


- Special features
Orphan elephants at Sheldrick, caressing cheetah, keeping a sand boa in your hand, embrace a rock python or standing inside the cave of the frightful male lions – the “Man-eaters of Tsavo”. This and much more literally can come within reach.


The images from “The Wilds of Kenya” are taken from the AVP films “Never Give Up” and “Blue Eyes”.
