See “extraordinary range of life forms” on safari holidays in Kenya

Those who are keen to see an "extraordinary range of life forms" might like to visit Kenya to go on safari.

According to Sankha Guha, writing for the Independent, wildebeest are the "comedy animals" of the great African plains and he described them as looking a mess.

He added that when the mammals are in groups it is difficult to notice when one ends and another begins, stating: "When you do catch them alone they look like cow-sized rugs in the process of unravelling."

Mr Guha visited the country during the animals' migration of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem – which could be an ideal time to go on a safari holiday – and he pointed out that the beasts put on quite a show, concluding that they are the "true masters" of the area.

His comments were echoed last month by Kira Stann, writing for Helium, who noted that there are plenty of chances to get up close and personal with the animals on a Kenyan safari.
