Safari Diary, MAASAI MARA – Sep 2015


Photo Tour, Maasai Mara in Kenya

7 September 2015

The Safari Link flight from Nairobi arrived at 11:00 at Ol Kiombo airstrip in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. My guests were welcomed to the Mara with with the sight of wildebeest as far as the eye can see. Our plan to drive to camp from the airstrip changed into a photographic detour with my guests photographing a crossing even before they had checked into camp. After this very exciting start to the photo tour we arrived at camp at 2:30pm, checked in, had lunch, and then it was time to go out again. During our first official game drive we fought through a sea of wildebeest to find a cheetah mother and her four small cubs as well as a few mating pairs of lions. These got the shutters firing fiercely and was a great way to start our week in the Maasai Mara!
