Beisa Oryx or East African Oryx (Oryx beisa) and Grevy Zebras (Equus grevyi) inhabit semi arid shrubby areas with access to water in the Horn of Africa. Both belong to the Northern specials together with Gerenuk, Reticulated Giraffe and Somali Ostrich.

Sharpe's Longclaw
Sharpe's Longclaw (Macronyx sharpei) is endemic to Kenya. It is found in few places in short grassland above 1.800 m in the Aberdares, Mt. Kenya and Mt. Elgon region. It is an endangered species but we know where to find it. Photo by Lorenzo Barelli
Reticulated Giraffe
The Reticulated Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata) is the most Northern Giraffe and is found in the horn of Africa. It is an endangered species and best seen in Kenya North of the equator. Kenya is currently the safest country to see them.

Forests are disappearing rapidly and so I have donated trees to a Maasai area and to Jim Justus Nyambu (the elephant man) who plants trees in schools and other places with his young team. When I participate I also teach about the importance of trees and which tree has which characteristics. Jim has walked thousands of kilometers in Africa to create awareness about elephants and healthy natural vegetation. http://elephantcenter.org/
When we do our safaris we include where possible eco lodges who also employ local tribes and assist them in learning.
With our visits and payments to areas where local people take big efforts to protect the environment and therefore habitats we give them support. Arabuko Sokoke Forest, Mida Creek, Kakamega Rain forest and Lake Baringo.
We regularely visit and sponsor Paul who is protecting the rare and endangered Mackinder Owl (Bubo capense mackinderi) in the Mt. Kenya/Aberdares range.
I educate who ever I can and some listen and implement.

    Hi, just before Covid arrived in the world, me and my wife did one of our greatest safaris in Africa. It was our 22nd time in Africa and we were very surprised to see so much new things. We started our tour in Nairobi and visited Meru and Samburu NP, Kakameka Forest, Lakes of Baringo and Elementaita and Naivasha and Aberdare Mountains. We saw beautiful landscapes got a lot of informations about country and people and - it was in first line a birding safari! - we saw more than 250 species of birds and could take a lot of nice pictures. All my thanks to Elvira Wolfer. She planed the Safari und guided us all the time. She is an excellent expert for birds and knows a lot about the country. We had many very interesting discussions with her. Thanks too to Joseph, our driver in these three weeks, who drove cautious and very good in all situations, and this was necessary because our safari was in the rainy season (with much rain!). I hope, when covid period is over to make a second tour with Bushtruckers in Kenya. Thank you again, hope to see you again! Peter Spätling

    VOn safari in Kenya In 2012 and 2015 we went on safari for four weeks with Bush Trucker Tours in Kenya and visited different national parks. Our journey took us to the Aberdare Mountains, Lake Baringo, Kakamega Forest, Lake Victoria and Masai Mara National Reserve. We were surprised by the enormous variety of landscapes, the unique fauna, and what is probably unknown to many, the great abundance of birds. Thanks to the very professional work of Elvira Wolfer and her driver Joseph, we were able to really enjoy the many wonderful encounters with the nature of East Africa. These safaris motivated us to book further trips in Kenya with Bush Trucker Tours. Maria and Rolf Bonkwald Gartow, September 18, 2020

    We were very lucky to experience a private 10 days photo safari with Elvira (Guide) and Joseph (driver guide). All our wishes were fulfilled. When we thought the already experienced animal sightings and landscapes can not become better, we learnt the next day that it was possible. Both guides have a big confidence. We never had the impression that we were exposed to danger when they showed us a sensation. We sensed the respect Elvira and Joseph have towards animals. They never went too close to animals and still we got a good spot for fantastic photos. We are the once who decided when to leave a sighting unless it was time to return to the lodge/camp. One highlight during our safari was wildebeest crossing the Mara River. Also here patience was required; waiting for the right moment. Trust in the Joseph’s and Elvira’s experience. Despite we were not at the spot where wildebeest crossed but from a 200 m distance we could overlook the whole scenario which was a big advantage. Goose bump feeling! The reward for patience was impressive photos and films. At the beginning of the tour we said we will be excited about everything in front of our lenses. We don’t want a rush for the big five the way we saw it in other tour operators. That’s why we couldn’t be disappointed but were grateful for the variety of game we were shown. We could see from tiniest insect to the Giant Forest Hogs. For us it was the most beautiful trip we ever experienced. Even the long drives were entertaining due to intensive discussions. We thank Elvira and Joseph and can recommend such a trip to everyone.

    Me and my wife had visited Kenya the first time in 1991. Since then we always went on tented safaris because we believe that this is the best way of eperiencing wildlife. Our last tented safari with elvira took us to samburu and meru. It was an amazing tour and Elvira and her team did an exceptional good job. We always felt like being part of a family the whole tour through. We had extraordinary animal adventures and the whole team was always interested in the wildlife the whole yourney through. We can only suggest if you want to experience African wildlife you have to go with bushtruckertours, Dr Gerrit Mack , Heike Mack
