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. Thank you to all our guests and travel companions for making the 2013 Safari Season such an enjoyable experience. We are already looking forward to next year’s safaris and adventures, with lots of exciting new places and activities being planned!  Please come along and join us!

Sir David Attenborough at Porini Camp

As we drove into Porini Camp (Amboseli), a Cessna Caravan with Sir David Attenborough and his BBC crew landed. They were making a documentary on the 'Lion Guardians', about how the Masai warriors now adopt a lion and protect it - rather than killing a lion as a rite of passage to warriorhood.

Wildebeest crossing Mara River

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.
