Unlikely friendship in Kenyan wildlife:

In 2002 A lioness adopted a baby Oryx in Samburu game reserve, the unusual that surprised many because Oryx is considered food of the lion.

However the Oryx was later made meal by fellow lions after some few weeks, a situation that didn't go well with the said lioness. So she went ahead and adopted another one, in the same reserve. Later the two were transferred to Nairobi animal orphanage before being separated later.

 

In 2004 A giant male century old Tortoise adopted a baby hippopotamus that survived the Tsumani waves  the off the Kenyan coastal town of Mombasa.

Nicknamed Owen, the less a year old Hippo, established a strong bond with the its new friend, doing things together such as swimming eating and sleeping together. Going around together, the hippo would protect the tortoise and became aggressive whenever somebody approaches them.

 

2011 A seven year old yellow baboon that was rescued in Maralal in northern Kenya frontier,adopted a bush baby that was rescued in central Kenya.

The two met at Nairobi animal orphanage a Kenya wildlife centre for orphaned and injured animals, and now it has become a big attraction to many because they eat, jump and holding each other arm.

 

The big migration that is considered as a great wonder of the world in wildlife family  where huge number of wildebeests in millions cross the Maasai mara river from Serengeti Tanzania.

This only happen between July through to October every year, a must see situation for many world life lovers.
