November News Masai Mara

We have had a wonderful short rainy season in the Masai Mara. The Marsh filled with water and grasses on the plains grew long drawing in large herds of resident wildebeest and zebra who cover the plains in big numbers. In the forests the trees are fruiting drawing in families of elephants, birds and baboons and out on the plains there are young of every species from warthog to Jackals and caterpillars to lion cubs. The migrant birds have begun to arrive and we have seen big flocks of European Bee eaters flying overhead.

October at Mfangano Island Camp

On Mfangano the rains have transformed the island and everything is looking lovely and green. The Spotted Necked Ottars have been in camp quite a lot and we have had 30 chickens delivered to the permaculture project so we hope to have plenty of fresh eggs very soon. Mfangano is gearing up to host our very first cycle challenge next month. The routes have been reccyed and the terrain assessed and we are now taking bookings for this very exciting event.
