The Lion Lady – Todays report from the bush – 10/03/2011
Last night it rained cats & dogs, so this morning everything was green and lush. We left at 6 am this morning after a super sunrise and a light breakfast and we headed to the Mara river to possibly catch a river crossing. Along the way we saw many animals, topi, wildbeest, zebra, giraffe, ververt monkey, varieties of birds, hippos, crocks. We stopped and set up our table along side the Mara River to enjoy the scenery and also a full breakfast. After Breakfast we continued with our game drive and were fortunate to see a couple of crossings. The zebra crossed and the wildbeest followed, skirting the crocs who were just waiting for them to do so. Fortunately for the zebra and wildbeests the crocs did not seem to be too hungry and everyone crossed successfully. After crossing, some decided to cross again and go back over to the side of the river, from which they had just come. Again, fate was on their side and all made it. (My pictures are too high resolution to upload from my good camera on the bush internet connection, but I hope you enjoy the low resolution from my not so good, other camera.) More pictures to follow upon my return from the bush!!
We returned to Bushtops for a late lunch and some relaxation. Lunch was delightful and in fact, I took some photos of our appetizers and dessert but I ate my fish and chips before I remembered to take some photos. So sorry!!
