Peter’s thoughts on his recent trip to Kenya

Masai Mara, Kenya

After getting up at 05.30 and being on a game drive for the previous two hours, here we were having breakfast under an Acacia tree. Not sandwiches or rolls but a full cooked breakfast and fresh fruit. As I sipped my coffee, I could see a small herd of buffalo a couple hundred metres to the left and a mixed herd of zebra, wildebeest and eland just below us. As we were on a side of a hill the view across the Masai Mara plains was magnificent and all the way to Tanzania. Recent rains had left the plains with a green tinge and the first of the wild flowers were coming out. Elephants cruising through a sea of flowers were a lovely and slightly incongruous sight.

The talk turned to what we had seen that morning, a leopard, 2 prides of lions and a hyena mother hurriedly carrying her baby to a new den and we still had the rest of the day still to go.


Why Kenya

Many places in Africa have an abundance of interesting animals, some that are very local and give that place n uniqueness that others envy. But few have the stunning backdrops such as Mount Kilimanjaro, Masai Plains, Rift Valley, the deserts and semi deserts of the north. Add to this really high standard of service in the hotels and lodges and the friendliness of the people and you can understand why Kenya was one of the first destinations for safaris and still remains one of the best safari destinations you can choose.
