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 👍
You want to see how 5 happy people look like? Like this, after completing finding the Big 5 in one day! Rare to happen, so even better :)

Merry Christmas from all of us at Namayiana Safaris! We are enjoying a goat bbq with German Glühwein tonight and celebrate with all kids of our village - of course without Glühwein for them :) To all of you a great Christmas time without stress and hustle!
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!
