Creature Feature: A Toady Intruder

Living out here in the bush, your neighbors are animals. Although we each have our own tents, the animals don’t care much about your privacy and when given the chance, will invade your personal quarters. I’ve had insects and small lizards get into my tent before but a few nights ago, a larger intruder [...]

safariLIVE: The Gauntlet – The final round of rehearsals

To say the past four weeks of safariLIVE: The Gauntlet have been epic would be a true understatement. From the phenomenal natural spectacle that is the Great Migration in Kenya, to the unusually social antics of the Djuma leopards, the gauntlet has been more than just thrown down. It has been stalked, it has [...]

safariLIVE: The Gauntlet – Kakenya

The plains of the Maasai Mara are always a contrast between beauty and tragedy. For every successful big cat out there, there are a dozen who do not make it. Whether through a bad hunt, an encounter with other predators, or being wounded, many of the cat characters out on the Mara plains find [...]

Creature Feature: Olive Baboon

At the foothills of safariLIVE’s Mara camp, past the FC studio, lies a dense bracket of trees that, covers the outskirts of our campsite. While not quite a forest, this part of the geography provides a dense wood that is inhabited by all manner of animals. Wildebeest, elephants and zebra have been spotted wandering [...]

Creature Feature: My Neighbor The Zebra

Often in camp, I don’t see many of the larger animals that roam the wilds of the Maasai Mara. I’ve only heard the distant laughter of hyenas, seen smashed trees left behind by elephants, and been told by co-workers that leopards or lions are active in the area. But otherwise, I mainly see smaller [...]
