The other day I was chatting with a friend and we started talking about my recent trip to the Masai Mara. She’d been on safari before. She stayed at Mombo in Botswana, one of the poshest resorts on the continent, and had a grand old-time. She understood the safari experience, or so I thought.
I suggested that she visit the Mara during the Great Migration. She crinkled her nose and said, “I don’t know, I think I would get bored. How many times can you look at a wildebeest? ” I almost fell out of my chair. While I explained to her why that was not the case, I also felt the need to remind her about the zillion other things the bush had to offer that would utterly captivate her. Frankly, I’m sure she was wondering why I was looking at her as if she had three heads.
After our conversation it got me thinking. I wondered if other people felt the same and it inspired me to write a little ditty for Yahoo Travel I thought you might also enjoy, 16 Ways the Masai Mara Reserve Will Blow Your Mind (Hint: Animal Babies Included) – Not my title btw.
