Another Day in the Masai Mara

December 08, 2013  •  7 Comments

​Today was another great  day in the Mara.   We spent some time watching elephants and a family of hyenas.  It was another beautiful day with a really nice sunset.

We saw more of  my favourite animals.

​Wildebeest in the distance. We were in the end of the migration season and in this part of the Mara,  there were wildebeest everywhere.

In the afternoon, we came across some hyenas resting in the grasses.

​On the way back to the lodge (I should say race back to the lodge) we saw elephants and some really nice colour in the skies.  It was getting very close to sunset so I could take only a couple of  pictures as we had to get back to the lodge which was still 20 minutes away.   I  found out later that they are fairly lenient about the 6.30 deadline as long as you are close to the lodge.  At that point  it is ok to stop and take some sunset pictures which is what we did.

By now we were very close to the lodge so Peter was able to stop for a few more pictures at sunset.

An end to another perfect day in Kenya.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos!! I loved the sepia treatment and the black and white of the elephant. You are an inspiration! It seems that you've been traveling all year...how did you accomplish that?? Please keep these great pics coming!
