Our trip began with our skilled driver Joseph picking us up and navigating through the fresh mud created by heavy rains. We saw zebras, giraffes, gazelles, wildebeast, and baboons even before we got to camp. In the two days following we were up close to lions and cubs, cheetah, leopard, elephants, hippos, rhinos, buffallo, all kinds of birds, storks, vultures, mongoose, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, and even an anteater!
We had amazing bush breakfasts overlooking the Mara river and at least a hundred hippos below us. We had sundowners out in the Mara, with giraffes walking by as the sun set ( gives a whole new meaning to happy hour). The food was outstanding and accommodation was made for my gluten-free/ paleo diet.
Thank you to Thor and staff for this extraordinary adventure!
