The Marsh Pride

Dear Friends, It's now about three months since I had position my self close to the marsh pride than ever before, it's only 10 mins from my new location which give enough time to do more updates, I had done a lot of freelance and it had taken me far from the mara but this year and going forward I will be the mara man again truly exiting, Our Marsh pride is back in action though weak as result of the last dissuster, Charm who is they main leader now comes and go and the pride is highly expose to many other problems, like out side pride members attacks hyena, Nomadic males attacks, Lion's need experience lioness, and mature male lions and the Marsh pride is lacking them both and they need some direction, It had splite into many little sett light prides in and out of the park, one thing I believe is the park rangers are very serous about the illegal grazing this is a goood sign indeed for the future of Maasai Mara, thank guys hongera, Lots of new born around and mating is happening with Tatu and Red i do not know the inbreeding problem time will tell because the dominant males are born from the Marsh pride and they are the the fathers of many new cubs interesting, I will give you more updates as they come through out the season, Salaams from the Mara Jackson Looseyia

The Marsh Pride

My Dear Friends, We had a very disappointing December 2015 with lose of Marsh pride member on Poison what a shame, As you can see from my last write up the prides are in big presure due to night grazing, this is the end result of it, Last week one of the guides from Main Govenors camp headed on his nomarl game drive to find Bibi dead and Allan frosting in his mouth, He call camp quickly for help and imagine the guest who had paid to come over to the Mara to see and Photograph this Cats, they call the vet from Defny Shaldrek Trust who came a little late due to distance but help was here at last, Allan was dong well until night when the Buffaloes discovered and Trumbull him to dust nothing was left of poor Allan, to this Date we had Lost Siana we think she may had move to cover somewhere and died and got finish by other predictors, Soon the news was break to all over the country and beyond every one new this a big blow to our nationa heritage and the rest of consevertion lovers, One thing every one must know about the Maasai Mara it have a big name in Kenya and out side the world, films had been made here best selling Photos had been made here in the Mara, In this regards we must all of us defied it with all of our power and strangth, f the Mara falls it will be like a very big tree follen and it take down a lot of trees where it falls, In history most of the time the County Authority manage to contain this negative news from reaching outside world but not this time round, Before it reach to the county HQ it's already coming from the headline all over the country and Oveseas, To this day they will have to take full responsibility for allowing cattle grazing in the famous Maasai Game reserve, I will believe when I see in a few month that there are no cattle in the National Reserve, I had there is a total barn during the day as well as during the night I will wait and see, This is just one of the reported incidents there many more we do not know however if the Prides are left a lone no interfere it will baunce back in a very short time, When One of Malaika Cubs get taken by a crocodile it Was sad to loose such a close friend but this is natural and we have to forget quickly but not BiBi this was very Painful and it will take us a long time to recover, Have a good coming Christmas and Very prosperous 2016.
