Angama Mara Photosafari day 3

13th March 2016
At Angama there are a variety of options available to you for game drives, you can spend the entire day in the Masai Mara and a packed breakfast and lunch will be taken with, you can leave early in the morning and have breakfast in the Mara and be back for lunch or you can have breakfast in the Lodge with some breathtaking views to look at and then go out and take lunch with if you like, the options are almost endless !

Today we decided to take Breakfast with and have a early start. After leaving the lodge we got down into the Masai Mara and were greeted with a couple of Lazy Buffalo bulls soaking up the morning sun.

While sitting at the Buffalo we got a brief Glimpse of a Female Leopard jumping down from a tree not too far off, on closer inspection we found she had stashed a Thompsons Gazelle up the tree that she had probably caught the night before, after searching for her without success we decided to leave the area and carry on with our drive.

The birdlife in the Mara is pretty good and along the way we stopped to photograph a beautiful pair of Yellow throated Longclaw as well a Black Bellied Bustard that was calling in the tall grass.

General Game in normally not in short supply in the Mara and as we drove along we photographed Defassa Waterbuck, Zebra, Topi standing on termite Mounds displaying and even a Topi stotting along trying to impress the ladies !

Mid Morning we stopped to have our Breakfast on the Central Part of the Masai Mara with the vast open plains surrounding us, Breakfast was very tasty and comes neatly individually packed in a tin and is served on a Table with camping chairs to sit on and to top it off probably the best Granadilla Juice I have ever had!

After Breakfast we continued to the Southern plains that border onto Tanzania and here we found two Male Cheetahs watching a herd of Gazelle in the distance, it wasn’t long before a herd of Zebras had gathered to watch the Cheetah from a respectful distance.

The Cheetahs slowly moved toward the Gazelles and we decided to sit and wait to see what would happen, a few hours later the Cheetah had moved about 50 meters and we were still waiting, although a little less patiently !

By now the Gazelles had moved a long way away and we decided that it was time to head back to the lodge for a very late Lunch !

We had a good day in the Mara and after lunch I spent some time photographing the wonderful views from the Main area deck at Angama, we were looking forward to the next day and more adventure down in the Mara.
