Migration season brings alot of food for most predators and the vultures. River crossings down at mara river are very spectacular and can last for close to an hour depending on the size of the wildebeest herd. Some of the crossing points are easy to tackle while others are tough.
Peter and his two guests went down to mara river and at one of the crossing points they saw a few dead gnus and alot of floating carcasses in the river. Vultures take advantage and feed on this carcasses without worring about being chased away by the larger predators like Lions and Hyenas.

It was during an early morning game-drive when ranger Peter and his guests came across a secretary bird busy having its morning meal. The secretary bird kept on plucking off bit by bit of the prey making it difficult to see what it was feeding on. A short while later the secretary bird carried the prey high up and started swallowing it.
Secretary bird also known as the hunting bird spend most of their day walking in the grass fields looking for prey like mice but aslo tackle snakes very well when they come across them.

The four male lions found along the Talek river have dominated this territory for over two years now.The males move along very well and the only differences arises when a female is on heat and chooses one of the dudes for copulation. This was a case when Daniel and the four guest on full day game drive came across the coaliation that had a battle probably that morning as one of them had blood stains allover the mane through to the chest.This was aresult of a fight to win a female that was only a few meters away from the three boys and next to her was the fourth brother. The injury was close to the left eye ball and at first Daniel and the guests got worried that he had lost the eye ball to realise shortly that it was ok.

The cheetah with the four cubs lately seen near look out hill close to the Mara river has lost one cub, most probably to the bigger predators. This area was dangerous because the area pride of lions moved closer to the river to stalk the river crossing.
On full day game drive john and his guests' found her strangulating a just caught impala and the cubs had just joined and were anxious to have a meal. she dragged the kill to a nearby bush to avoid attraccting vultures and bigger predators. The guests wished the three a life through.

wild dogs are rear species, and one should consider oneselve lucky if you happen to see them in the wild. Interestingly over the last one and half year the wild dogs have been sighted in isaaten conservancy. The dogs were not around recently for some time and we knew they were denning. They returned last week and they have cubs.
Today after fullday game drive the scout informed Daniel that the dogs are with a patrol half a kilometer away from the camp. After informing the guest if they would like and they said yes Daniel took a quick drive to find the dogs lying lazily after a kill of a wildbeest.
