Conservancy cocktail with ostrich chaser

The thrill of the chase is generally viewed after a lengthy vigil, seeing four separate episodes is surely a little greedy even for people who have visited over 20 times

S.A.F.E Travel

F.G.M. (Female genital mutilation for the uninitiated) is an abomination. This barbaric practice is carried out all over the world yet prosecutions are rare and this hideous butchery goes on unabated.

Highs and Lows

Scenes like this are harrowing and desperately upsetting. That’s just for the viewers, imagine the pain of this reticulated giraffe mother, her calf killed by lions and she feeling like Custer at Little Big Horn yet she still battles to ensure the carcass is not defiled.

Stare Cases

Leave time is precious time, apparently even for Ryan Air Pilots, so when Jimmy Tinka has repeat safari-goers with a yen for leopards he knows just how to oblige them in Mara North.

Reflection, affection, purrfection.

When you are dealing with fabled diva’s sometimes it takes a while for them to appear on the red carpet. However frustrating this may be, no amount of tantrums or tiara’s will make a shred of difference.

Cross purposes

It is a common and frankly absurd misconception to describe ruminants bisecting the Mara River as a ‘migration’.

Border Control

The word ‘coalition’ is generally employed to describe a perceived harmony between two odious political parties who have neutered past hostilities in the collective craving for greed and power.

Who’s the Daddy

Now just what is in the water in Naboisho right now? This Conservancy is more lively than the Oval office recruitment center.

Heads or Tails

Sometimes it is just about being there at the right time. Rarely. It is almost always a diligent quest, then patient and often lonely vigil. Particularly with leopards.

Short-term gain

Nothing worse than toiling all day before finally catching something, only for the opposition to cash in. Mara North may be a perfect battleground for new boys hunting but there are always some cynical old heavyweights happy to filibuster proceedings.
