Masai Mara Family Safari
13-year-old Kasey Wilson had the exciting privilege of feeding an orphaned rhino near Lewa Downs, Kenya during their visit. Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it works to conserve both wildlife and its habitat through the protection and management of species, by supporting community conservation and development programs, and also educating its neighbors about the value of wildlife.
The Wilsons visited a Maasai Village near Little Governors’ Camp on their Kenya Masai Mara safari. A visit to Kenya really isn’t complete without some kind of cultural experience, and we encourage all of our clients to make something like this a part of their safari. This area of the Masai Mara is not only well seated to access local culture, it is teeming with wildlife! We often bring you game reports on the Safari Journal Blog from the Governors’ family of camps. We are always excited to hear the latest happenings in their very game-rich neck of the woods.
The female lion pictured here passed so close to the Wilsons in the game drive vehicle that Jim could have scratched her back–but he didn’t! She was part of a hunting party of four females that had their eyes on some zebra.
