The migration of wildebeests and zebras have now entered the Mara.Every indication shows that the stage is set for the world’s most fascinating wildlife spectacle. Herds of mainly zebras and wildebeest have crossed the border near sand river gate. They could be seen in the mornings taking their traditional route towards Roan hill, and some have already crossed the main road to the Mara river from Sekenani gate. Their movement however is slower because of the amount of grass in their way. Since April this year we have continued having intermittent rains which has made the plains covered in long green grass.
Book any of our safaris starting from Nairobi and going to Masai Mara National Reserve either by Road or Fly to Masai Mara.
It is apparently clear that there is a generation that will not experience or know the meaning of the word 'KIND' or 'KINDNESS' or 'BE KIND'. The words seems like foreign words when mentioned to some people across the globe. We are different, we know the effect and impact it has on people. It doesn't choose whether rich or poor; man or woman or any religion. The words are powerful by themselves. Will you join us in spreading this word to our youth and donating foodstuff and necessary items to the needy children homes or elderly homes in and around Nairobi?
