Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

Before making any decisions about a honeymoon safari in Kenya investigate going to the Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary If your plans include a Honeymoon in Kenya, and you aren?t very keen on the prospect of flying in a light aircraft, then The Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary could well be a very good choice of Game Reserve.

It is situated about a couple of hour?s drive from Nairobi, so no need to fly and the Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary lies on the shores of Lake Oloidien which is a crater lake, and was once part of Lake Naivasha, and is bordered by the Rift?s Mau Escarpment and Hells Gate National Park.

The drive there is spectacular rising from 5500 feet at Nairobi to the edge of the Great Rift Valley at 8500 feet, then down to Lake Naivasha at 6200 feet. The views of the Aberdare Mountain Range, the Mau Escarpment and Mount Longonot are unforgettable

The wildlife sanctuary is over eighteen thousand acres surrounded by electric fences with 24/7 guards. The Oserian Game Corridor lies outside the Sanctuary fences, and this was established in agreement with the Kenya Wildlife Service. It allows wildlife to pass from Hells Gate to the Lake.

One of the main reasons to consider the Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary for a honeymoon in Kenya, and certainly as part of a Kenyan safari is the luxurious Chui Lodge within the sanctuary and this allows its visitors exclusive access to explore and to enjoy the flora and fauna. The is also Kiangazi House situated in the game corridor.

It is an important feature of the Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary that all profits from tourism a reinvested into the conservation of this part of Kenya. This especially applies to the wildlife it supports, and as a consequence of this policy there has been the reintroduction of several endangered species such as the White Rhino, Grevy Zebra Beisa Oryx, and the Greater Kudu all brought in from Northern Kenya. In addition Wildebeest, and Topi were moved in from the Maasai Mara.

To add to the mix there are frequent sightings of Leopard and Cheetah, so there is a terrific mix of Game to be seen at the Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary, and importantly the White Rhino population has more than doubled in the last ten years. Game viewing is as good a reason as any to visit Oserian on your honeymoon in Kenya.

Overall the Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary has over three hundred species of visiting birds, and forty five different mammals have made it their home.

It is important to select the best time of year to visit, and if you remember that April to June and November bring the rains and the land is very green. It doesn?t rain more than short sharp bursts follwed by sunny spells, so this is a very good time to visit this part of Kenya. July and September are the coolest months, and December to March the warmest.
