An incredible journey. . . . . . . .

After one night and a wonderful day in Nairobi, we took a 12 seater plane to our camp.
This airport for Mara Plains surprised me - not even an airstrip, just a bumpy bush
 area. Gentleman with motorcycle was a taxi! 
Fortunately our plane was met by a large safari vehicle to take us to camp.

Fighting Hartebeest antelopes - two males, young one on left, old guy on right. 
Thankfully they gave up prior to a sad end and ran away after about half an hour
 of serious battle, most likely over territory.

This evening's game drive was cut short when a heavy rain fell - apparently very
 unusual at this time of year.  As you can see, we've seen a lot of game 
already - the plains are heaving with what could be over a million Wildebeest
 readying for the annual migration, some silhouetted against the horizon here.

I will have amazing stories to share from Kenya. Our days are so very busy
 from the 6AM game drive until late evening here in the Maasai Mara - and no time to
 post other than these few photos to show you that we made it here!

Lots more to come from this spectacular continent.
