Recent sightings in brie- Ol Donyo Lodge
The most exciting thing happened last night when a couple of our guests along with Seki our head guide stumbled upon our well known local lion! It’s always a treat to get a sighting of a species which has been so heavily persecuted in this region. Small conservation steps matter.
This week’s full moon was more than ample motivation to give our guests the ideal opportunity to spend a night star-gazing from the rooftop bedrooms. There’s no finer night in Africa than one under the stars with nature lulling you to sleep, and Kilimanjaro welcoming you as you wake .
New Camp, new year’ Mara Toto camp nearly finished, Kenya
The finishing touches are all that remain to be completed for the grand opening of the NEW Mara Toto Camp, located just inside the Masai Mara Game Reserve, on the border with the private Mara North Conservancy. The 5 -tent camp is Great Plains’ latest addition to its highly -regarded portfolio of camps in Kenya and Botswana. Mara Toto will operate in place of its sister camp, Mara Plains, while it is under refurbishment until June 2013; after which, Mara Toto will remain open as well and operate independently, though in close partnership, with Mara Plains .
