The fire crackles, you are surrounded by the the wide open expanse of the bush and the open night sky wraps around you like a glittering, velvet blanket. You hear the loud, thunderous sound of a lion’s roar and your spine tingles as you realize there is nothing but distance and the crisp night air that separates you from the Serengeti’s top predator. Later, you are awakened by the thumping sound of a hundred hooves, as a hungry pack of Hyena chase a herd of wildebeest through camp!
Rekero Camp has been spoilt with lots of amazing crossings this past week! They had at least 2 hours of Talek River crossings everyday for the last few days and are seeing crossings from the South to the North of the camp. We also were lucky enough to have our Mara Bush Houses guide, Salaash, capture the incredible moment of a leopard hunting a small gnu at the Mara River!
