Some of the many wild animals we have around us can get acustomed to human presence and become habituated.
A pride of Lions living around Keekorok air-strip have become very comfortable around cars, making them the one of the most famous pride in the Mara. The Keekorok pride was found walking on the road and they seemed to have a specific destination in mind. To everyones suprise they went direct to the waiting bay at Keekorok airstrip and sat down as though they were waiting to board a plane! It took a while before they moved on causing a slight worthwhile delay.

Peter and his guests were having a good fullday game-drive with lots of plains game relaxing by the road side where the grass is a little shorter. At around noon the mara heat had forced most of the game to seek shade or go down to water holes. While driving along a lugga Peter came across a herd of elephant wallowing in the mud and they noticed one of the young ellys trying to cover its whole body with mud by rolling over and over.
Elephants wallow in the mud to cool off and protect their skin from being damaged by the sun.

Sopa lion pride over the last couple of month has been very entertaining to our visitors into maasai mara reserve. The last episode was the breathtaking fight between them and the buffaloes. The pride had gone a number of days without success but fate finally sided with them. Ferdinand and his guest were on an half day game drive found the remains of what was part of buffalo team that was chasing away the mighty king of the jungle. They spend sometime watching the lions reduce the buffalo carcass to nothing but a sekeleton.

The long grass in the maasai mara game reserve is keeping most of the herbivores outside the reserve where the grass is kept short by the maasai livestock.This is important to the plains game as they can spot the predators at a distance. The giraffes are exempted from this because of their height.
On full day game drive Ferdinard and his guests came across a tower of giraffe that posed for them when they stopped infront as if they were photogenic giving all sort of profiles.

After singling out the lone Buffalo the Lions decided to take it to the next level. Peter and his guests were amused by the determination the Lions had. Before the Buffalo could get back to the rest of the herd the Lions had already surrounded it and tried to pin it down. The battle continued for a short while without any success and soon enough the rest of the herd arrived and chased the Lions away. This time round the Lions were chased over 100 yards away from the herd. Peter's guests found it funny to see the king of the jungle run for dear life with over 500 angry Buffalo behind them.
