The first stop was the Mara region in Kenya .
Friends warned and worried that i would be held captive by Marai tribesmen, never to see civilisation again . No chance of that .. As it turned out i was too old for being taken captive or turned into a child bride.!They called me Mum , ( can't seem to escape this title ) left to my own devices which was a good thing because the scenery and wildlife were extraordinary .

Rekero Camp superbly organised by Julia Fryer from @iconic africa
I couldnt ask for a better introduction to Safaris and the world of camping . Amazing location ; crossings could occur while you were having breakfast ; eclectic people all meeting at this one point in the world to pay homage to a world of magnificent wild animals . (#outofafrica #safari #iconicafrica )
The Wilerbeest: Determined, Committed. A thundering force of nature
They move en masse , they raise a hell of a dust storm and teams of people from around the world come to see and feel their energy .
Key Species found in the Mara
Wildlife in your face , unadulterated , raw yet tender, powerful yet vulnerable .
They keep you enthralled for hours .
Next post ... Zambia and the mighty falls .
see you then xx
