The wildlife viewing in the Mara has been superb over the past few months. The November short rains have been excellent and probably the best we've had in 15+ years. The conservancies are beautifully green and lush resulting in plenty of food for the herbivores and the plains are teeming with wildlife including an abundance of topi, zebra, hartebeest, gazelle, and buffalo calves among others. Add to this mix the big cats – lions, leopards and cheetah – all with cubs resident in our conservancies and it makes for a dramatic and exciting safari viewing experience. Of course the rains have led to some muddy and slippery conditions with the occasional incident of getting stuck but all our clients have taken it with a spirit of adventure! It looks like the rains may have ended as the past few days we've had no rain with bright and sunny days.
