After a successful first day in the Greater Mara Isaaten Conservancy, Charles and his guests were enthusiastic to continue the lucky spell with a visit to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. He had planned a FUll Day drive in the reserve bringing with him a sumptuous lunch to keep hunger at bay as they serached for the wildlife. Like the first day, the reserve did not disappoint as charles managed to show his guest 5 cheetahs and a pride of 20 lions. The climax of the drive was the pride of lions that consisted 11 cubs, 7 lionesses and 2 male lions. The big cats were on charles's guests list and for sure he did not disappoint. www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDJhkvyH7CQ

The rains this month have been fantastic, and following so shortly after the fires, the regrowth has been phenomenal, almost overnight the landscape changed from browns and black to verdant green gold.
Daniel and his four guest talked about this changes on their way to sopa to chance the sopa pride of lions that capitalise on buffalos for their daily meal. To their luck they found the pride in one of their favourite river riparian with remains of what was their meal(buffalo) but as they watched the cubs busy chewing, two female featured behind a bush to check on vulture landing a few meters away.Daniel opted to drive there to find out the female carrying a bitting(buffalo calf) for the pride for a later part of the day.

The rainy season has begun smoothly with slight showers mostly in the afternoon.
The Mara game reserve grassy plains are filled with very long grass making it difficult for the cheetah to hunt. Recently the park rangers burnt some of this long grass to create room for fresh grass. Peter and his guests were happy to see all sorts of animals as drove through the burnt out grass plains. They saw lots on plains game nibbling on the fresh grass growing when suddenly they bumped into four cheetah feeding. As they watched them feed Peter explained to his guests why the mother cheetah kept scanning the sorrounding.
We loose alot of cheetah to attacks from bigger predators like lions due to suprise attacks as they rest or feed. Cheetahs mothers are very proctective and keep and eye out at all times.

The weather is mostly cloudy for the better part of the day due to the on coming long rains . The coolness of the weather makes most of the animals active for longer hours.
Ranger Alex and his guests were fortunate enough to see a pod of hippos grazing along side a seasonal river in the Eastern part of the Mara game reserve.
Hippos are semi-aquatic herbivores that spend most of the day in pools of water and mostly graze at night. They can spend up-to five hours grazing and can eat 40-60 kg of grass per day. The males are very aggressive and territorial.

Predators such as lion, cheetah and leopard tend to consume a small fraction of prey their prey. Some of the predators such as hyenas and jackals are known to walk around looking for carrion, a behaviour we call scavenging.
Scavengers are very important as they almost totally consume the remaining part of the carcass thus helping curb spread of disease caused by flies that will breed in the rotting carcass.
