Masai Mara Day 1, Camp ManyattaOctober 7, 2017 in Kenya
Today we get picked up at 6:15 am from our guide and driver John, a Masai. We are a group of 8 and it takes us about 7h until we arrive at our camp “Manyatta”, just outside of the National Park with tents each under a roof, a bathroom attached to the back and a really nice lobby. We check in, have some lunch and a quick nap until our first ever game drive starts!
At around 4pm our little off road 4x4 minivan is entering the “Masai Mara National Park”.
We don’t really know what to expect, but it doesn’t take long until we realise, this park is full of animals. About 10min in, we even discover a couple of cheetahs hunting a group a wildebeests. Its amazing to see and it ends with the fastest animal on earth doing a high speed chase into the far.
Apart from lots of zebras, wildebeests and antilopes we discover sleepy lions 🦁 (males and females), a hippo, buffalos, chakals, turkeys, warthogs and huge masai giraffes. The whole scene reminds of Jurassic Park.
At around 6:30 we’re back in our tented camp with a nice dinner and an early night of sleep 💤Read more
