    Masai Mara National Reserve

    July 17, 2017 in Kenya

    Yesterday we crossed back into Kenya then spent a couple of hours deap cleaning the truck, taking everything off and washing it after the last couple of dusty days. A 4.30am start this morning to cover the 6 hour drive before lunch. We then swapped our camping gear across into three 4wd vans that took us on a 2 hour drive into the Masai Mara NR. That last hour was brutal on a temporary 'road' that was driven at breakneck speed! We then had a 4 hour game drive that was awesome, our second best wildlife experience (second only to the killer whales hunting in Patagonia 12 years ago). We saw giraffes, a cat, part of the wildebeest migration, impala, warthogs, an elephant family with a very young one and lions up close. We were incredibly lucky to witness a pack of lionesses hunt and kill a wilder beast with minimal effort and chase because of their brilliant team work. Even the two pups anticipated what was going to happen and hid themselves until they had finished.Read more

    Masai Mara National Reserve Day 2

    July 18, 2017 in Kenya

    We were in the Reserve as the sun rose and went straight to where the kill happened the day before but it had been dragged off somewhere undercover to be eaten. While we didn't have the excitement of before we still saw plenty of wildlife. The mongoose where a big hit with us, as was seeing more lions and giraffes. Our driver did loose the other two vans and wasn't sure where to go which amused us when he started using google maps to try and locate us or them! We left the Reserve and had a 6 hour journey back to Karen Camp, Nairobi before a meal out at a local expat restaurant as we were saying cheerio to some travellers and welcome to new ones.Read more

    The Masai are the native people in this part of Africa. We visited a traditional Masai village where we were welcomed with the village's own welcome dance where they got us all to participate. We were shown around, visited homes, shown their craft work and had a demonstration of fire starting
