Read this from one of their happy guests…

We took off from a small airstrip a few miles away from the Nairobi airport and landed in the Maasai Mara wilderness in the middle of nowhere. Dixon (our trusted guide and driver) picked us up and we started off with our first game drive right away. We drove around in the Lemek conservancy for a while spotting interesting wildlife against the Maasai Mara landscape. It was a sight to behold.

Over the next 3 days, we had an unforgettable experience both with the wilderness and also with the Losokwan camp members, most of whom were part of the Maasai tribe. We were warmly greeted by the entire camp on arrival and we were just in time for lunch.

The experience of living in tents in the wilderness without any fencing or artificial defenses was thrilling. One morning, we observed zebras, ostriches and antelopes around 500 ft from the tents.

We were truly fortunate to see some of the most amazing wildlife sights in the Masai Mara wilderness. The Lemek pride of 15 lions had brought down a giraffe and were enjoying a family feast. We followed the male of the pride with his two lionesses for a distance of 2 miles. The closest we were to the lions was 2 ft as they walked past our jeep. According to them, we were non-existent in their home.

We were lucky enough to see a cheetah with her fresh kill and a leopard.

Apart from the predators, we were able to view and understand the breath taking ecosystem of the Masai Mara – From eagles and vultures, to rabbits and jackals, to zebras and wild hogs, to predators and finally to the elephants, giraffes and several members of the antelope family among many others.

At one point, we were able to come across a scene of extreme diversity – only seen in movies by most. A panoramic view in front of us consisting of giraffe, elephant, gazelles, warthog, zebras and many others. Jackals and a small pride of lions hiding in the bushes, no photograph could do this scene any justice. One has to be there and see it to understand its depth.

Breakfast at the banks of the Mara river (a cliff) with crocodiles and hippos down below just 15 ft – 20 ft away is hard to forget. We travelled to the Masai Mara crossing were the wild beasts, zebras and other animals cross over during the great migration following the movement of the lush pastures during the months of June – August. A small herd of ~ 50 to 100 wild beasts and zebras attempted to cross over as we looked on.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without Dixon. His ability to observe the presence of animals from miles away even without binoculars is something we could never fathom. His guts, talent, skill and patience gave us a once-in-a-lifetime unforgettable experience.

Joseph, the chef prepared exquisite food through our stay and even took care of little requests from our side.

Vincent and Duncan ensured that our tents were spotless and tidy every day.

Dennis, a very polite and caring waiter ensured extreme comfort before, during and after every meal.

Joseph, the security guard, ensured that we were always safe by walking us around the camp during darkness.

Daniel shared his immense knowledge about the behavior of various species of animals and their traits. Discussions around a warm and cozy campfire during cold nights was a truly memorable experience.

Vincent and Daniel, being members of the Maasai, were adept at firing an arrow and hurling a spear.

Thuto, the manager travelled to the camp from the Nairobi head office to ensure that our stay was extremely enjoyable.

To conclude, the Maasai Mara experience is something that one must go for at least once in their lifetime.
