Maasai Mara Day 2

This morning Carol and I went on a sunrise game drive. Amazing! Unlike the Serengeti you can go off road here and get very close to the animals. We were 30 feet from a cheetah with a fresh kill and then were blessed to see a lioness with three cubs

The afternoon game drive was awesome. our first sighting was lots of Topi, and wart hogs. Our first elephant came along shortly after, followed by an ostrich family and a tortoise of all things. The immenseness of the Mara is incredible. The highlight of the afternoon was watching a large family of hippos wallow and play at the bend in a river. they were amazing to watch. the day ended with Eland sightings and some incredible zebra behaviour. It is impossible to adequately describe or photograph this place- you have to be here.
