Once again we are heading back to Kenya. Our previous safaris in Kenya have provided some incredible moments and since 2011 we have been sharing our safaris by providing regular updates "from the field". This year we will be blogging live again and we have added a JustGiving link for followers of our blog to donate to our chosen charity "Save The Elephants".

Day Fourteen - Welcome to the Mara
We left the Mara Springs around 8am and headed through the Sekenani Gate to the Masai Mara National Reserve. Almost immediately we were photographing Zebra, Giraffe and Wildebeest. We were also welcomed by a family of Elephants, which included a very young baby and saw large numbers of Topi.
There were some very large Wildebeest and Zebra herds between the New Mara Bridge and Mara Serena Lodge.

Later we also photographed Warthogs with babies.

We then found a Spotted Hyena den and photographed a shy baby Hyena.
Curious but shy, this baby Hyena couldn't resist checking us out
At the Oloololo Campsite, we set up camp next to a mother and baby Elephant and a small herd of Zebra.
