Frere family in Kenya 2014

Maasai Mara, Kenya

Safari

Big game

The first three days involved a trip to the Maasai Mara to go on Safari, stopping off to view the Rift Valley on the way. It involved a lot of travelling on very bumpy and dusty roads, two nights' accommodation in a canvas 'chalet' and several game drives to see the animals.

"Favourites were wildebeest playing 'chicken' and crossing the track in front of our vehicle en masse, a cheetah lying under a bush almost in touching distance (we didn't touch) and a lion devouring a wildebeest before we'd even had our own breakfast. We went back for pancakes, which were much more appetising."
