Some of my favourite moments in Masai Mara

There are many national parks in Kenya but this particular park stands out for me. The wildlife and scenery never disappoints. It has really nothing to do with the fact that its well known.

Here are some of my best moments of my trip three weeks ago:

  • Experiencing a lion kill……During my first game we found 3 lionesses with their cubs feasting on a zebra. The zebra was heavily pregnant probably one of reasons she was caught.  😦

  • The views of the plains from Oloololo Escarpement in the Mara. It was a breathtaking view. It reminded me of the view from Pride Rock in the Lion King Movie.

We were a 7kms from the  Kenya – Tanzania border. The darker areas in the horizon in this photo below  is actually Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. This was our guide Jackson.

  •  Kilima Camp : I simply loved this camp. Its located high up on the same escarpement. The views from this tented camp are simply to die for. The dining area overlooks the plains below.

When you live in the city, you rarely get to experience something like this.  A beautiful sunrise .

We all need to get away from the concrete jungle once in awhile. Its a wonderful retreat where you get to relax away from the hussle and bustle of the city.

Maasai Mara is one of my favourite places . I actually recommend anyone who hasnt been there to visit.

  3. Masai Mara is one of the most well known parks in Kenya. Must say it was really lucky that you managed to spot the Tigers eating their kill on your first safari. Seeing that you can spot the Serengheti National Park from there just shows how connected everything is and for the animals at least there are no borders. The camp looks luxurious.

    Looks like an amazing trip! Kind of sad to see the pregnant zebra, but everybody’s got to eat, right? The cabins/tents look nice and comfortable.

  5. Kenya sounds amazing. I’m not sure I would have liked to witness the Zebra kill though I am a little squeamish about those things. The camp looks wonderful and that sunrise is worth getting up for!

  8. You were brave for watching at the lions eating a zebra. I cannot. The Kilima Camp looks like the perfect place to stay and learn more about the wildlife. The beds look comfy too.
