We awoke to another brilliant morning for our last full day in Kenya. It was clear that the short rains had taken a holiday, for the sky was cloudless and deepening into a robin’s egg blue. Following breakfast, we gathered at 7:30 a.m.
Our first full day on the Mara dawned behind a thin pink veil of cloud. By the time we were ready for our early morning game drive, the day had broken into blue. Most of the group gathered in the main lodge for tea or coffee before our 6:30 a.m. departure.
This was our long haul day as we made our way south from Lake Nakuru, then west across the Great Rift Valley, up and over the Mau Escarpment (the Valley’s western wall), and out onto the Mara plain.
Monday, November 11 - At breakfast it appeared that most of our group had passed the night uninterrupted by animal sightings.
Sunday, November 10 - Our day and a half at Ashnil Samburu Camp had been full—indeed, it seemed that we had been here both longer and all too briefly, but it was time to move on. We departed Ashnil Camp at 7:30 a.m., waved away by Ashnil’s friendly staff and Johnson, still carrying his club.
