We got to Masai Mara in this little propeller plane.
This is how we were welcomed !
On the second day, we went to meet little Masai kids, their church, school & homes. The homes still do not have any electricity. These children live away from modern life... and its amenities. Yet.... the joy on thier faces in unbound.
The first animal we saw... Mr. Hippo!
A little about the climate – generally warm and humid nearly all year long. It does get cool during the nights. Rainfall is seasonal between November & April. This is the official website for further information http://www.magicalkenya.com/ Here are a few pics from our drive.
The slightly over adventurous Cheetah.
This is how close we were to the animals... The elephant... oh I just love.. How magnificant & royal !!
My heart skipped a beat when we came face to face with the big five! Specially when the lion just sat there and stared back at us. The king of the jungle with all its splendour and majesty. The first thing that came to my mind – ‘Hakuna Matata – such a wonderful world’
And then they come to say Hello -
We stayed at the Fairmont Masai Mara. The resort has nearly 50 tents with four poster beds topped with comfy pillow and a hot water bag in your blanets to keep you warm at night. The tents extend to a veranda overlooking the monkey, hippo and crocodile-filled river. Be prepared for all the noises. For more information - https://www.fairmont.com/marasafariclub/
The chandelier on the restaurant ceiling is made up of dried cocunt covers. How amazing and creative??
