Did you know that ostriches are one of the biggest birds in the world? They can grow up to 9 feet in height.

The Masai giraffe is not only one of the tallest animals, it is also one of the most endangered species in the world.

There are plenty of colourful, rare species of birds as well.

The Thomsons Gazelle, a graceful looking antelope should be a must watch on your list.

If you are planning a trip to this reserve, July to October -- also known as the dry season -- would be a favourable time to visit, so you can spot a lot of wildlife. At 20 to 25 degrees, the weather is also perfect.

There is no way you can ignore the Big Five -- which includes the African elephant, lion, leopard, cape buffalo, and rhinoceros.

Here's a small video from the safari:
