Jambo!   Greetings from Kenya!

Our final safari for 2014 is drawing to a close, with only a few more days before we all head back home to Australia. Once again, all the guests have enjoyed the spectacular wildlife, stunning scenery and luxurious accommodation that make our safaris so memorable. I look forward to seeing everyone’s photos and videos when I return. We’ll share the best ones we find here on our website.

In the meantime, here are a few photos we took just days ago!

Many thanks to all our 2014 safari guests. May your memories last a lifetime!

Best regards,

Bruce Stark

Cheetah 3

Look at what the cat dragged in! 

We watched this female cheetah streak across the Mara savannah to catch her prey.

We were thrilled when she walked right up to our Landcruiser with

a Thompsons Gazelle in her mouth!

Here is another perfect specimen that crossed our path in Amboseli.

Gorilla Baby

Gorilla Baby.

This little fellow was just as curious about us as we were about him! Although humans are not permitted to touch them, the gorillas sometimes approach you for a closer look. This one actually stepped up and touched one of our guests on the knee, while never once breaking eye contact. His Silverback Dad kept a careful watch from nearby.

Zebras at Waterhole

Zebras at WaterholeThere’s nothing more refreshing than a nice cool drink at the end of the day! We came across these superb zebras during our August safari this year.

Sometimes witnessing a river crossing can be pure luck. Look closely at this scene! Our bonus was seeing two hippos having a brawl in the background!

Elephant family at Amboseli

2012 SK favourites 006We came across this family group which was coming down from the bush to the Amboseli swamps. Stopping beside the elephant trail, we managed to take countless fantastic photos as they slowly walked by our LandCruiser.
