Masai Mara Long Weekend

Do it!

This is a bit of a long journey for the short holiday, but it is totally worth it! The game drives were phenomenal. I never expected to get this close to the big cats! I am planning to go back for more! The only downside was that I was the only guest at the camp at the time. There are 17 tents and I thought I would find like minded people to share the experience with over dinner and drinks... But no. .. Staff at the camp were fabulous and made me feel extremely welcome. They even moved a table outside for me so that I could enjoy the company of the local birds, that literally sat on my table while I had lunch. But it would have been a better experience if there had been other travellers around the fire pit ( which was not lit because I was on my own) and to share drinks with on the amazing viewing platform. I would encourage people to do the trip at this time of year! Long days, more time with the big cats ( I believe there are many vehicles queuing for a 'photo shoot' at other times of the year), cute Cubs... What's not to like. I want to go back for the great migration, but I know for certain that this time of year offers many other attractions in the less busy Maasai Mara. The flights/transfers were well organised and I even had the same taxi driver driving me through Nairobi at the time of arrival and departure. There was a long stay in Nairobi after flying back from the Mara until the flight left for the UK and the taxi driver even offered options like shopping or a meal at a restaurant before going to the airport. I did not take him up on that, but really appreciated the offer! If you are wondering whether it is 'worth it' for those few days....it REALLY is...go for it, book it! And enjoy! I know I did!

Spectacular isn't strong enough!

After so many other safari's this was by far the best. Accommodation at Talek Gate was perfect and Charles the camp manager extremely hospitable. We saw everything thanks to Amos our tour guide and had a fantastic time. Lions, Leopards, Cheetah, Giraffe and Rhino and every animal had young. Breathtaking scenary and connection to life!
