    1. That is a worry, Marilyn. What’s heartening is that there’s an awful lot of Maasai Mara that is not in the national park, but part of territories owned by the Maasai (so called group ranches). Since they draw direct income from the safari camps on their land, they tend to take care of things – along with charitable conservation groups that monitor poaching. They also provide patrolled wilderness areas for threatened species like the white rhino.

  1. You’re lucky having a chance to capture those moments.. Especially, the ones when they’re fighting.. Mine, when I was there, most of the time, they just slept around…
