The grassy planes of the Massai Mara
The beautiful markings of the Zebra and the Topi
This trip taken in late November with the grasslands flourishing from the rainy season,
Young animals parrt of the herds
For the Wilderbeest Great Migration had moved south out of Kenya by this time of the year
There were some older or weaker beasts left in the masai mara
Their fate most likely to a feast for the parts predators
Sneaking through the grasslands is a predator
Its is unlikely that the Jackal would take on the bigger herd animals more likely small er mammals and rodents. But what a sight prowling through the grasslands.
Its the big cats the herd animals really have to look out for.
But we will come to those in a further post
Because sometimes you miss much by looking for the star attraction!
