    Default Masia Mara

    Was privilidged to go talk at a converence in the Masia Mara, spent 4 nights just outside the Mara in one of the lodges.

    A few pictures of the wildlife and landscape....... one cannot explain the abundance of wildlife till you see it.

    We where fortunate to see some amazing wildlife moments.

    One thing that struck me is the amount of tour operators, as soon as something interesting is sighted 10 - 20 game viewers decend on the area.

    If one has the chance to go I would do it again, but since our accomodation was paid for if I was going myself would stay in one of the smaller lodges, tented camps.

    I was there last week,had a thing at the Intrepid Camp with Mad Mark.
    You're right with the tour operaters-too many.
    But had a few deep chats with Mad Mark about the numerous trails,apparently they do keep them 'Eco sensitive' by how they are developed by the drivers eg The trails are made with erosion in mind
    But beautiful place,spoils you for normal parks.
    A legend in his own mind
