Leopard – one of the most stunning of all

The day we saw the leopard was incredibly exciting, they are one of the most difficult animals to find as they hunt at night and often sleep up in trees during the day.

We had been searching the previous day but it had proved to be very elusive so when we managed to get SO close to this one, it was an ‘awesome’ experience.

On one of our last days on safari, our Masai driver and guide, Mandila, stopped on the plains at sunset for what had become our customary African sunset glass of wine. The tree we stopped at was particularly of interest as when we looked up, we saw the carcass of what had obviously been lovely meal for one of the leopards.

Quite a feat when you think that the animal was probably heavier than the leopard itself !!

Hippo on the Plains

I hadn’t imagined just HOW many animals we would be seeing on Safari in the Masai Mara, it seemed like wherever you looked there was something unbelievably enormous walking past!

Off on our travels- Masai Mara here we come !

Great way to start a trip, good book and a glass of champagne!
Starting our trip to Kenya, 2 days in Nairobi, 4 days on safari to the Governor’s Camp, Masai Mara.
Looking forward to it although I’m probably more nervous of the people than the animals, at least you know that if they get a chance the animals will eat you, people are MUCH more unpredictable !
