Leaving for a sunday morning stroll. These three lion teenagers were hanging out with there family until they decided to leave the group for a small walk. We were up the hill, what gave us the chance to take a photo of them with the spectacular Maasai Mara scenery in the background. What do you do on today’s Sunday?

The Maasai people’s lucky charm - the DikDik. It’s the smallest antelope and also one of the most loyal animals in the world. If the partner dies, the survivor is not mating again - often they mourn until they die as well. This one luckily was a happy honeymooner, hopefully the family is grown by now!

Flamingos!!! Finally they returned back to Lake Nakuru National Park and are a great sighting besides rhinos, giraffes and lions. Book with us for your next safari adventure!

Wow, we just noticed that so far we didn’t post any picture of the most exciting sighting we had this year. A pride of lions took down a wildebeest and we were the only car observing this cruel but fascinating happening. You see the lioness suffocating the poor animal that is still alive. It took several minutes for it to finally do his last breath. Did you ever see a hunt and kill so close yourself?

Sometimes you click through Instagrams filters and just come to the conclusion that nature has the best filter. What a great sunset in the Maasai Mara taken on safari with @panpan_811 in December We would love to welcome you back!!!

„Hey bro, you see that lion over there?“ „Where?!“ „There! Open your eyes!!!“ „I still don’t see!“ „pfffff!“ More or less like this was probably the conversation between this tower of giraffes. Yes, it is a „tower“ of giraffe, not a group!
@maike.sander is making new friends in our village. Goat Bambi and calf without a name, are the less shyest of the stockade and like to meet new people from everywhere. Maike and Niels @chasethestreets are currently on their trip around the world and visit us for a week. You can also take a break from backpacking and recharge your batteries in our guesthouse! By the way: Anyone a name idea for the calf? 🤗 Tomorrow we go on safari, let’s see who wants to be our friends then 🤪

Nothing‘s better than a proper mud bath out of an elephants perspective. Just bad if your aunt occupys the whole hole with her enormous butt ;)

If you are on safari in the Maasai Mara and you enter through Oloolaimutia Gate, you might see this little cheetah family as one of the first animals. During the last weeks Mama cheetah started to guide her two cubs out of a closed area to show them the „real life“. Together with the two male cheetah brothers they are our resident cheetahs in this area of the park. Always good hunt and great grip under your paws!

„Muuum, there is sand in my eye!“ Instead of waiting for mummy to help, this little guy just uses the trunk to see clear again. Very useful especially in the dusty season the Mara was in last month.

Cow-Test: Check! During the last days we built a wall around our fire place to sit comfortably while barbecuing or just enjoying the flames. It’s 99,9% natural with stones from the property, water, sand from the property and bought cement. We are all very proud! 😀 Visit us at our homestay here in the Maasai Mara and end your safari days here!

You don’t have a good lens on your camera? No problem, we can help you with our binoculars 😀 We like the new „photo look“ a lot and got really close to the cheetah brothers feasting on a wildebeest kill.

Yesterday the adventure started for our guests from India. 5 Days in the Mara and in Nakuru. On today’s full day game drive we just missed the leopard, but had great sightings with many lion, cheetah and also a quick sight of the rare serval cat. The rhino gave us enough time to take a closer look at him - awesome! Tomorrow we wait for more 👍
