The Masai Mara is a large area with various habitats. The first thing to do is to decide where you want to stay - there are lots of choices in the Mara.
|People are always asking,
"How close can you get to a lion?"
Just as close as they choose to get to you, really!
|The Lookout Bar over-looking the waterhole at Keekorok Lodge, from our room. One day, a lion pride was sunning on the rock at the left hand side of the photo|
|Hippo Pools, on the Mara River.
Hippos look very placid, but are responsible for many human deaths in Africa.
Never get between a hippo and water!
|The Buffalo is another of the most dangerous animals in the bush, and the only animals which the Maasai warriors fear - they can 'tree' you for days on end while they circle underneath. It is the old, lone males of which you need to be wary.
I liked the way the Oxpecker on this buffalo's neck was 'framed' by its horns.
