There it is - our first calendar with our best pictures from our safaris. Many people asked: Why do you not offer photo books, calendars or anything else? So finally it’s here, Maasai Mara 2019! Pick up at Kenya’s coast, Nairobi and Maasai Mara is possible. For shipping we find a solution! So if you want to take a memory back home, just let us know!
The Star-lit sky above our house. In clear nights you can also see the Milky Way. And if you take a very close look, there is also a falling star in the picture :) Want to spend one night here, contact us!

Yes we know! They are not everyone’s favorite, but vultures are important for the savannah eco system. They clean up the leftovers and make sure that sicknesses don’t spread. These lapped-faced vultures were immediately the bosses when they arrived at this wildebeest kill. The white-backed had no choice but to stay away. Anyway: The lapped-faced vultures belong to the endangered animals of the world. This picture was taken in the same series as our flying cheetah a few days ago!

Mpairo with the eagle eyes! Just shortly after this picture was taken, he found us a pride of lion feasting on a kill! It’s always unbelievable how he sees any animal no matter where it’s hiding. Fun fact: also Maasai mums tell their kids that carrots make your eyesight better. So maybe our parents haven’t been wrong at all ;-)

What do you need more: a bonfire, a star-lit night with the Milky Way above the house, the sounds of hyenas in the distance and some good friends to spend the great atmosphere with. Join us in our Maasai guesthouse of Namayiana Safaris right at the border of the wonderful Maasai Mara.
The full and lazy lion cub really made a face of happiness after the delicious Eland meal in the morning. Thanks to his mum and aunts he’s growing up with no worries at all. Papa Lion was also around and nearly had the same expression in his face as his offspring!

Cheetah in full flight! This female cheetah named Michelle was getting angry at all these begging and annoying vultures that joined her and her cub during the feast. They killed a wildebeest baby and ate quickly. When the cub left the kill,nearly 100 vultures approached the leftovers and that was the moment when Michelle had enough: she charged the birds and seems to be flying as well! A great sighting!!! There will be more pictures of this amazing moment on NamayianaSafaris!
Happy faces all around! Alan and Frédérique from France visited our village and made friends immediately. Even though they just had time for one night with us, they didn’t want to leave and we hope to welcome them soon back to Maasai Mara! Safe travels home to France!

Spontaneous guests in our house last night. We enjoyed a BBQ, the sunrise and a new born baby cow. A great experience to add to your safari adventure!

A special day for our kids Lanoi and Toye. They have been growing up next to the Maasai Mara, but they never went for a safari day. Today they are lucky: holidays and we have to fuel the car in a lodge in the Park. Hopefully we come across some elephants or lions on the way! Also you can make a child happy with his/hers first game drive. On safari with us and you have a free seat? Just let us know if you want to give the seat away and we organize the rest. Conservation starts with children!

Not the best quality picture, but we have to share our today’s Pizza and BBQ Action with you. Everyone is waiting for the food to be finished and the Kids designed their first own pizza. Yummy! Want to share your recipes with us on the fire - visit our guesthouse and these great children! :-)

The elephant family we just found on today’s game drive. They were drinking water until a buffalo had the same interest. The little baby elephant tried his best to look biiig and dangerous, but mum had to step up for him and protect the little one. Finally they could all drink.

Watching the videos of our last game drive together with our own small simba. Wondering if he can see the cat - anyway he started to clean himself as well 🤗
