Jaffery saw 30 lions on their game drive apart from seeing leopard, Black Rhino, Herds and Herds of Elephant and Buffalo, making them see the big five in one day. Serengeti is vast but we still have a chance of seeing plenty of game in this Region. Serengeti is associated with Migration, though when it’s on the south we still experience lots of Game. When migration is on the south, North experience very special game drives with few vehicles on the way. When you see a game it becomes a private one. Most Clients when they come back from the Game drives are usually overwhelmed for seeing what they did not expect and wonder why game along this region is associated with migration .Its not unusual to find Elephants coming very close to the Guests tents during the day like it happened today.

As you drive along the Mara River you will come across schools of Hippo on a pool of water, which forms a territory. Any intruder to the pool will not be spared . The way Hippos stay in the pool of water reflects the way we humans stay in the hot tub with simple reason of either cooling our body or warming it .Hippos use water as place for refuge during the day as they cannot withstand the sun.Their skin is very venerable to heat and will easily form cracks subjecting them to severe pains.

Mara River is known to harbor many crocodiles including some giant ones. They intermingle very well with hippos while in water. Though they both stay in the water Hippos can only hold their breath in the water to a maximum of five minutes while crocodiles can stay under water for over one hour. The guests on the game drive spotted one big crocodile which had popped out of the water after almost hours in the water and wondered how they manage this yet they do not have gills like the fish. Their Ranger Deus told them that Crocodiles can hold their breath underwater for more than an hour; this ability depends on a tiny fragment of the animal's hemoglobin the protein that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Crocodiles use a waste product of metabolism - the bicarbonate ions formed when carbon dioxide dissolves in water - as the trigger for hemoglobin to unload the oxygen it carries. The more energy the crocodile's cells burn up, the more carbon dioxide they produce. So the bicarbonate triggering mechanism ensures that large quantities of oxygen are supplied only to the hard-working tissues that need it the most, thus conserving a submerged crocodile's limited supplies. This efficient system of oxygen allocation, combined with the reptile's very slow metabolism, explains how it is able to survive underwater for so long.

Guests on game drive were amazed by the wonderful landscape. The area is coved by long grass making it look like rice/ Oat plantation .The Ranger informed the Clients that ,the soil is rich in nutrients and when it rains the grass gets the ecological agility to recover within a short period of time from the drought . The tall grass creates a cover for the cats when hunting giving them a big advantage which on the other hand becomes a disadvantage to the prey as they cannot see the cats easily.
