July in the Masai Mara

My first safari in Kenya this month was rewarded with some truly impressive big cat sightings! Several of our resident Mara leopards were on good form, and the entire “camp” pride of lions settled down on our driveway during the second night under canvas. Our final drive to the airstrip was even exciting as we watched a beautiful female cheetah stalk and bring down a young gazelle – what a way to cap a wonderful few days! This was particularly special as the safari was with an old school friend from my early years in Sydney; such a treat to show off the amazing wildlife to him and his family!
