SPECTACULAR WILDLIFE SIGHTINGS

spot of the week

Black and White Friday

'And when they are done with trying to eradicate these noble horned creatures in the South they will turn their insidious but high-tech weapons East.' This is what a distressed guide told me last week.

Black Friday

Often it is a very fleeting moment, hard-earned, but brief, but a moment that is forever burnished into your memory mainframe, frequently beyond megapixels.

Champagne Charlie

Out of the big smoke of a London corporate bank, meet Charlie - first day in the Mara ever. Try carry-on lion cub baggage, a cheetah and eland confrontation, breakfast with hippos, and then staggeringly, a full-on zebra take down from fifty metres away. In one day!

Good things come to those…

Three days ago an Air Kenya Twin Otter en route from Kicheche Laikipia kissed the burnished Olare airstrip and disgorged two couples. Sue Emery planted her feet firmly onto the dusty cotton soil and breathed deeply ... they had made it after fifteen years in the making.

Awards of the Week

This week I attended the celebration of the African Wildlife Foundation''s Sixtieth Anniversary and the Benjamin Mkapa Nature's Best Photographic Awards ceremony. The late Benjamin Mkapa, ex President of Tanzania, was an iconic supporter of conservation and the event was graced by the presence of his widow Anna Mkapa along with our CS Tourism Hon Balala. The importance of conservation organisations such as AWF, along with wildlife tourism, cannot be overstated, especially during critical recent times.

Spot (007) of the Week

Karibu Jenny Brown, we've been expecting you. No time to die wondering with these lethal shots, they are right on the money. Penny for your thoughts everyone, are these not are utter gold?

Excellent sightings, drivers and being in the right place at the right time. Every opportunity to get the best photos possible. The photography is the main purpose for my being here and I cannot be more pleased.
Bob - KMC
As a tour leader I have stayed at many camps in East Africa and I can honestly say Kicheche Mara is in the top due to its guides and it’s hospitality. An important factor for me also is its special accommodations for photographers. I plan many return visits.
