Getting a hot air Balloon pilots licence was an interesting, challenging and very very fun thing to do!
The mara is always exciting to come back to, and after the longest break i've had from here in over 2 years, it is especially so this time!
There seem to be very few animals around, but November is one of the times when they are most widely dispersed as they move in search of better quality graze and water. The local cattle populations are being forced (and led) to do the same.. so this is pushing the wildlife further and deeper into the reserve, as well as out of the park.
Basecamp had an unusually busy November, with the well attended Ecostorm Conference, followed immediately by the 10th year annversary celebrations.
My excitement for November came from Basecamp Masai Mara being named in National Geographic Adventure's 'Top 50 Eco Lodges in the World'!!
Here's the link!
I claim that one... !
Well...see you in the Skies over the Masai Mara soon!
