A friend and great ape conservationist in Fairbanks, Holly Carrol, told me that the Masai Mara is a good place to bang out your safari, probably bag all the animals. I have always wanted to do safari but really hadn’t considered what all of the animals means but I thought this sounded pretty good. “Bag all the animals”. My mind drifted to giraffes, zebras, elephants, and lions- the stuff of our western childhood fairy tale’s. Reading about safari opportunities on the Dark Continent had been overwhelming me because of all the options, however, my mileage ticket bought one month before leaving Alaska put me in Nairobi as a starting point. I took Holly’s advice spending one day in Nairobi before booking a “4 day” safari in the Mara. Here are a few shots from the first evening.
Lions were tomorrow not today ;>)
