Kenya Diaries Part X - Maasai Mara
Question which I would really rather stay unanswered, as I prefer the mysterious ponderings of my mind to real life: WHAT IS INSIDE THE SAUSAGES ON A SAUSAGE TREE? If you know the answer, please do not share.
Morning safari was "boring" - as far as animal sightings. Don't those animals know we are here to see them?? How dare they stay hidden when we've come all this way! Darned nature. At least the scenery was beautiful.
We had a break in between breakfast and afternoon safari (starts at 3:30) so Jed and I did what any sensible people who aren't paying would do: ordered drinks and sat like royalty by the pool.
This afternoon we saw much more on our safari than this morning. Dik-diks by the gates, then zebras, gazelles, hartebeast, a herd of elephants, wildebeest, topis, impalas, elands, ostriches ANNNNNDDD.... 3 male lions. These are our first 'big' male lions with full grown manes and they decided to sleep through our encounter. I guess we don't look like potential sources of food.
Exciting moments: it rained super hard just before our safari and so there were a lot of muddy roads. We pulled a stuck land cruiser out of the mud. Heroes!
Tomorrow: all day safari to the mara river. BE PREPARED.
