There is nothing in the world like spending a night in the bush. Listening to the roar of lions at a very close distance was the best experience ever. The camping experience was incredibly memorable. Every evening we sat by our campfire and were mesmerised by the nightmare sounds of the bush. The sounds of Lions roars and elephants trumpet was coming from different directions. One morning, we had elephants visit during breakfast. Luckily the jumbos noticed our presence and in their true nature, they immediately changed their direction. Grazing hippos also came to say hi near our tents at night, giving us an exhilarating scare. The camping experience was one of its own kind.
There are fears that due to the reduced incomes from the pandemic, some of the Mara Conservancy’s shareholders, the Maasais living nearby, might not receive their share of tourism proceeds this year. Add game rangers and other park officials to this list and you are witnessing an entire industry crumble. It hurts to think about it, but we can reverse the situation by doing what we can to travel to the parks. We had a wonderful time, and so will you
