Holding Fire

This photo was taken in a Maasai Village in Kenya, just outside Maasai Mara National Reserve. Maasai Mara is one of my favorite places in the world, it has everything to offer; gorgeous natural landscapes, tons of wild animals, beautiful places to stay, and a wonderful village to visit just outside the park’s gates. The village was really interesting, and all of the people we talked to were very sweet, and they were happy to show us around. This man, along with a younger man, was showing us how they make fires there, it was a very interesting process to watch.

Another couple of pictures of a beautiful sunrise in Africa. This was taken on our last game drive in Kenya, at what is probably my favorite place on earth, Maasai Mara. I don’t have too much more to say about the park than what i’ve said in previous posts. It’s magnificent, everything from the sunrise to the grassy stretches of land filled with grazing zebras to the lions lounging under the trees. It’s an amazing place, and if you were only going to visit one park in Kenya, i’d recommend it be this one. These pictures (while still pretty) don’t really give you the best idea of how beautiful a place it really is, but trust me, it’s gorgeous.

This is a photograph of a giraffe silhouette, taken in Maasai Mara, Kenya. As i’ve mentioned before (see other Kenya posts) Maasai Mara is my favorite of the parks i’ve visited in Kenya. I find that it has the greatest proliferation of wildlife, and we usually have great luck here, there are tons of animals, especially if you are around during the Great Migration, and because this park is more touristed (still no where close to over-touristed though) the animals are a little less shy than they are at some of the more remote parks.

Moving Spots

This photography was taken at Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. We went out on an early morning game drive and found this young cheetah along with it’s brother, just laying down along side the dirt road. We found these two not too far from where we were staying, a place called Fig Tree Camp. The camp is beautiful, the staff were really friendly, and the location was great; we saw tons of wildlife on the game drives that we took from this hotel, and the view from our tent cabin was really beautiful. Maasai Mara is my favorite park, and having stayed in more than one hotel there, i’d still recommend this one, it’s further from the gates of the park than some of the other hotels, but it’s well worth the drive.
