Breakdown in the Masai Mara

(This is the mishap I mentioned yesterday)

Out for a day in the Masai Mara with big cat expert
and award winning wildlife photograher, Jonathan Scott

One bump too many and a nasty noise
prompted closer inspection

Broken suspension

Thankfully, even though we were in the middle of the Mara,
it was possible to radio for assistance

An hour later, and a team of mechanics arrived from Govenors Camp
to see if the break could be fixed in the field

Sadly, these wheels weren't going to take us any further today
so it was a quick transfer to another 4x4 to make up for lost wildlife spotting time

Having eventually managed to get to see the Marsh Pride during the afternoon

There was just time as the day was coming to a close
to spent a quiet and intimate time observing a herd of elephant at a river crossing

Before rounding off the day with an African sunset

To see TV clips from Jonathan Scott, including the famous encounter with Kike the cheetah go to
