Did I nail it ?

So I'm back from what I think was a (rather) productive trip to Masai Mara and Amboseli. However, I'll let the experienced Forum contributors here let me know did I nail it ?

Instead of doing a day by day account of my 7 day trip, I'm posting photos by categories. 

Off course, I need to start off with the big cat series :

Terrific!

 

Your images are exciting. Very, very nice.

 

I like your approach of images by category.

 

Your big cat sightings in Masai Mara and Amboseli were superb.

 

Thank you for this strong beginning, which more than nails it!

Although I resized the photos, the photos I posted appear fine on my computer..but looks terribly skewed on iPad !

@Abhi a very nice start to your photographic trip report.  As an unashamed fan of the Mara, your shots bring me right back.  Where were you in the Mara (camp or location)?  Looking forward to more!

I like your CATagories of photos.  Look good on my screen.  How long were you in each location?

Hello @amybatt  A friend of mine has setup a new camp right next to the Talek gate (Mara Duma Bush Camp). In fact it’s the closest camp to Talek gate. I stayed here for 5 days. It was my first time in a Bush camp (more used to lodges) but it worked out fine and the service was phenomenal

Hello @Atravelynn : This was a short trip. I spent 5 nights in Mara and just 1 night in Amboseli (actually 8 was in Amboseli for less than 24 hrs)

needless to state.. next time I intend to spend a little more time in Amboseli as well.

You almost nailed it! Your photo "the elusive cheetah" in post #1 is actually a leopard :)

 

Looks like you had a successful trip!

Nice catch  @janzin
