Day 4 - August 11, 2015 - Shifting from Mara East to Mara West

At 6.30 a.m. we checked out from Fig Tree Camp. Mara is so vast that while doing safari only we had to shift to other side. also, one of our group members had to leave. No doubt it was a four hours safari drive.

First thing we saw in the morning after a really long search was a pair of lioness.

Around 10 a.m. we stopped for our breakfast at the highest point of Mara. I phone photos on the way to Mara Serena Resort. I will write about one of the best property when we reach there.

Here is the small Air Stripe. One of our team member left for Mumbai. This is such a tourist friendly county, i never realised. We had bookings from different Air Stripe but they just changed without any hassle on our request over phone. One just have to walk into the aircraft and if your name is there then u r in. I heard of animals walking on the Air stripe but realised that a heard of Zebra just crossed in front of the Aircraft before landing.
