We spent the morning on a game drive in Amboseli, then boarded a small bush plane and headed for Mara Camp, located in a large conservancy adjacent to the Masai Mara National Reserve. During high season (roughly June to September), the conservancy is shared by up to 5 separate tented and mobile camps, meaning there were more people around than I expected. Still not really crowded, but more vehicles. We timed the whole trip to give us the best possible chance to see the famous wildebeest crossing at the Mara River inside the park. So much for plans. Climate change is wreaking havoc here, just as it is in most places. The rains came early, meaning the plains were beautiful and green and prey animals were beyond abundant. The bad news is, since there was so much fresh grass, the herd animals didn't have to migrate to eat, and so the river crossings were few and far between.
