A few snatched shots through the minibus window as we travelled from Lake Elementaita to the Masai Mara...


Plenty of Bars, 'Hotels' and butcheries...







Woodcarvers near Narok...




Making a giraffe... the tourist within us couldn't help but buy a similar giraffe and a rhino too...


More snatched drive-by shots of life by the road...

 

 




Our stop for lunch, Miche with Justyn & Rebecca and Laetitia & Julien behind...



Miche's first experience of a 'Five Star Bush'...


Arrival in the Masai Mara...

Our tent for a spot of glamping... the camp was completely open to the animals and the Masai guarded the camp at night and escorted us to our tents after dark...


 

Spider with a Batman signal 'shell', there were also some good sized Golden Orb Web spiders around the camp and some Funnel web and Baboon spiders that stayed in their burrows, despite a little encouragement to come out...

 

Topi...



 

 



 

 



 




Our first lions, possibly a breeding pair away from the rest of the pride...







 



 





Thomson's Gazelles at sunset...

 






 

 
After dark, the eyes of a Hyena...
