Today was the first day off for all groups. We arrived last evening at the beautiful Mara Serena Lodge, one of the most beautiful places for a view of the Mara with excellent service and delicious food.
Most went on safaris and we had a surprise bush lunch by the river with hippos and crocodiles in full view.
