May in the Masai Mara

This month the Masai Mara like the rest of Kenya received an abundance of rain. The river filled to almost bursting, the marshes and inland lakes were full and the grass grew long and green. Big families of elephant came to the Marshes to feed on the soft sedge grasses and to play. We continued to have great big cat sightings particularly of Yaya and her new tiny cubs and the six males who are resident close to our camps.

May at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

Rainy season in the Volcanoes has filled the rivers and streams, greened up the mountainsides and brought the gorillas lower down the slopes to feed. Our guests have been enjoying some wonderful moments with the gorillas. A consensus on gorilla numbers released this month reveals some great news on gorilla numbers. We have been working on further reducing our environmental impact filtering the mountain water and givign guests metal water bottles to use during their stay with us.
