Masai Mara Wildlife Updates

Malaika the Mara cheetah, known for her habits of jumping on vehicles had now left her fully grown cubs. She left them yesterday near Double crossing area, when a suitor came around and left the area with her. They have been mating not to far from the salt lick area since yesterday morning. The male that has courted her seems young and i could not identify him. today, they were still in the same area. I found the cubs yesterday evening but the salt lick. They are still trying to call to mum, but she was a bit far and also occupied with the male.
the cubs are now big enough to fend for themselves. It is very interesting, this is the same place where Honey parted ways with her cubs years ago! I will keep watching and update on any development

Last week, I spent 6 days in South Serengeti, following up on the calving wildebeest. We arrived when the active calving had ended. The wildebeests had moved from Ndutu area to the plains around Naabi hill. We encountered eh herds around here and we spent most of the time in this location. However, once we were “wildebeestsed-out” we shifted to looking four cats, especially lions and cheetahs.
The following 3 days was spent among these rock-loving prides of lions. We followed two different prides, who would go hunting at night but in the morning comes back to the same kopje or an adjacent one in same territory. We were rewarded with a great sighting of them on rocks posing nicely for us in different light conditions and event some, mating on the rock (this was not on our shopping list!)
I have come to like this location in Serengeti, for such photo opportunities. I visit Serengeti almost 15 times a year, but I usually do not go to this particular spot due to tight program and limited time. You need amble time to access this place. I have been to this location before, in 1998, but I must have come a little too late that day, as the lions had come down the rocks. But this time round my guests and I had plenty of hours to burn scouring the area, and patiently sitting, waiting for photo opportunity.
One afternoon we realized a photo opportunity. We wanted to take a shot of the moon and a lion on the rock in perfect light. But this was a photo that was never to be. Our subject, the lion on the rock kept its head down until we lost the moon! However, it was worth the wait, otherwise, we would have thought we missed the opportunity. That is the game in photography.
I will be camping again next year in the same location to cover the calving wildebeests and visit my cats once more. If you are interested in joining a safari I will lead the please get in touch not eh following link;

Amazing how the Giraffes finds food in the middle of nowhere

Posted: 09 May 2015 07:57 AM PDT
On a recent safari in Serengeti, i spent a great time in solitude around the Gol Kopjes. Beside watching prides of lions in this area all on ourselves, i was amazed when i saw some 3 Giraffes who had trekked for kilometres across the endless plains to come to the Kopjies. It was a time when most of Serengeti was very dry and off course all animals were looking for food. What was amazing is how they got to know of the Kopjes even though they were out of sight from anywhere. Having spent almost a week in this area, i could see that Elephants had been here at some point as can be seen from broken trees. How they were able to find this place too was another guess.
It just got to show how intelligent the animals are and using natural instinct to find food.

Trekking across the plains. Naabi hill in the background

With no landmark as a bearing, these animals just followed their instinct 

They ended up at the Kopjes where they spent some days

There was plenty to eat once they got here.
