Our treat today was a drive through the Mara National Reserve in safari mode (roof up), the now traditional ‘bush lunch’ on the banks of the Mara River, then checking-in to the luxury Mara Serena Safari Lodge. The Mara is greener than usual at this time of year so beautiful vistas prevailed for the animal photographs. The evening concluded with our driver appreciation event in which Lawrence and Peter (Raphael left for Nairobi this morning) were thanked for their care for our well-being. The success of A Better World trips is dependent upon their diligent driving and intimate knowledge of the social, political and natural environments.
