Practicing for when I grow up

As the seasons and weather patterns change in the Masai Mara it can often be a case of ‘feast or famine’ for the predators. Migration seasons is certainly a time for feasting and every morning so far has revealed a vast array of fresh carcasses from the predators nocturnal activities. Providing food for not only the carnivores but also for...

Up close & personal

One of the things that Andy and I love about camping in the bush is that fact that you are totally immersed in the environment and often get to see a different perspective of the bush other than when driving around game viewing. You see and smell things that you would ordinarily drive past and get to appreciate the tiny...

Roars and Big Paws

Our first night back was filled with roars from the plains below and the sound of a few zebra stallions snorting and munching close to our tent, together with the often comical sounds of large wildebeest herds close by. After our usual ritual of making hot drinks with a very tame Scrub Hare nibbling grass just feet away it was...

Notch family fun

Those of you who know Andy and I know that we have a particular soft spot for a certain 'big puss' in the Masai Mara called 'Notch', who we have followed since around 2005. Although we only saw him last in March 2010 we dearly hoped to see him again on our current trip. We certainly did not expect to...

Time to say Kwaheri (for now!)

It pains us to say this but sadly we have now left the Mara, and so unfortunately this is the last blog before we embark on our travels back to the UK. Home renovations are going to have to take priority for the next few months so it will be a while until our next update; but time moves fast,...

Not one but TWO!

Sighting Leopards can always be somewhat of a challenge, given their solitary shy and secretive nature. Its true that in some areas of the Mara they are known to be somewhat more habituated to vehicles and are thus seen more often. In the area we are currently in they tend to be a little more illusive. The population here is...

King of the Mara

Finally we are delighted to report that we have now seen Notch!  He must have crossed back over the river in the last day or two and is located not too far from the lionesses and 9 cubs. Resting beside him was another male, one of his many sons! He is still looking great for a lion of his age...

The mighty are rising.

This morning the plains below Serena were filled with testosterone. At around 8am we came across 4 of the Notch clan (the 'sons'). They were a little restless at the entrance to the croton thickets and were glancing around the plains. It was not long until their facial expressions soon changed to a fierce and focused gaze into the distance....

Habari gani?

The days in the Mara have continued to be beautiful and sunny and not too mention extremely hot, the river has dropped considerably which has meant the Notch clan have been hopping backwards and forwards! We have not yet seen the 'legend' himself yet (Notch) but this morning we are fairly sure we saw him across the river near to...
