Hunters, Herbivores and Herders on the Mara Plains

This week, inspired by Frizztext’s HHH-challenge, I thought I’d take you on a safari. So karibuni – as they say in Kenya. Welcome to the Maasai Mara, one of the world’s wonderful places.

      1. Oh to name a few, there are the ant-eating aardvarks and pangolins, honey badgers, bats, monkeys of course, mongoose, civet cats, bushbabies, elephant shrews, porcupines, chameleons, hyrax, hares and rabbits. Kenya also has around 600 bird species. Then there are wonderful butterflies and moths. I won’t mention the snakes tho! And yes, Africa, the Rift, where we probably all began.

  1. Wow, Tish, your photographs all look amazing! I especially loved the purple one with the smoky fields – they are all so vivid and so gorgeously captured!
