Dear all 

This time we eat like cheetahs on the move two hrs to homes and on the way try and see more Cats if possible.
10 min after we have wave Good bye to Jono and Dudu some one on the radio we have found the Boys.
Get ready bean bags, tripods, fully charge cameras on the road.
Yes this are honey boys under a balanitis tree in the middle of mara paradise plains all other animals are rested just eat yesterday I reckon.
Since we are under pressure to get to our next destination we are quick like any other departures in the maasai mara. 

This boys still are power of cheetah wold in the mara we have not seen any males in the area to challenge them.
A few other cheetahs like Allana, long, Serena, among other girls have been seen in our area of reach.
A young female is about to give birth at Olkeju rongai near the Simiti crossing, among the news is new cubs have been seen with one of the Ridge pride females near Serena, and three of the females I sow day before members of the Ridge are all very heavy pregnant so a lot of babies are on the way in a week and month.
For those whore coming to mara in november you will have the best time every in the maasai mara the short rains are starting little one every where migration still in the mara it will be fantastic.
We got to move I said to my guest, to the marsh.

As we arrive like always this must be the best place to see wildlife at the same time, the diversity of wild life bird life, tourist etc.

Rakita and I are looking every behavior from cars to animals birds just find lions on trees.
The herd of Buffalos have cornered the pride this is Lisby and her sub adults cubs they have grown so well too.
Bibi in the middle of the mash and Red no where to be seen while white Eye was 600 mt way in save place bless her.
clawed and Romeo were under a tree resting living all the work to the girls great boys just like us some time.
The mash was action after the other this office is the best love it all the way every min and sec I spend our there.

I left them in safe trees and wish them the best of luck as always I cant wait to see them again.

Bless you all 

And have a good day in the office.

The Jackson 5

Binti in the morning.

Now the pressure is on I have found Olive arriving with this group and her little cubs at what we call smelly crossing so but I left my camera could not give you any photos.
At night I never sleep too much always listening what is going on around me.

Just before my tea arrive 5:45 I had the leopards calling, that is binti and that is olive.
As I had ask for my gust to be waken up at the same time they are not in a hurry to be with me on time.
Fire the engine, off we went min we had cross the Talek towards the east and we sow two lionesses at the same time Binti was on the opposite bank looking at one another.
Where should we look the lions or the leopard the mara have some of best qualities of the game drive in the world.
Two hrs later I am still determine to see olive and her cubs. 
Min of looking for her the fist give way was the cars near smelly crossing I new she was there but I still love to share this experiences to my gust since I fell I am meeting a friend in Maasai mara.

Well I love my office this is all before breakfast and the gust and I will be living to homes our other camp just fab.

Looking for honey boys

After siesta and good lunch we got back to our 4x4 looking for honey boys.
Since you may know Shakira and the Girls are gone to Serengeti about 6 days ago this time I am she may not come back with Moja mbili or Tatu.

Well my option is the three brothers look every conner no way the only think I can tell you this after noon is the breath taking views of the maasai mara.

Bless you all,


Notch family

Notch Son 

At last one of notch Sons come out in the middle of the day causing caos in the main crossing.
While we are stay for min waiting for the crossing to happen not this time let go meet this boy.

At the conner of the last gnu is lioness after food which was at end success full well done girls.
This pride now have 7 young cubs all looking last when we sow them I new something was going one as the cubs left one of the fathers wadering in the long grass.
We slowly drove to see the two girls on a kill but I said to the gust lets follow that one and get the story, she is going to get the cubs.
What a nice day she call all the cubs and lead them to the kill love every min of it with notch pride.
This boy had no idea what had happen and we did not give any tips either.

I will see you later

ridge pride

Notch little cub.

We are waking up at 6 am and let us meet in the car by 6:30 right.
As we look around fist is the numbers of wildbeest in the mara I thought they have left but when I look over the conservancy Rhino ridge, below look out full to the top, The migration will be late going back to Serengeti.

Min after a long scan we sow 7 of the ridge pride well feed and looking sad I think still thinking one day Dady will be with us Snugle tooth.

I push on to look for the next king Notch but with the number of pictures the Guest are taking I gave up on Notch its self, any one on the pride will make my day i am living the next day to rekero home.
A few min later one of our guids call me on the radio the crossing had started thousand are getting to the river run.

Just in time when I started the car Rakita  Our spotter said to me stop there is a snake over there.
This was a spitting Cobra we finally Id.
So much to see in the mara, wait for the next hour.

Rongai pride

Another wanderful day in the office this time with Olkeju Rongai pride of 14. 
Its always a challenge when you get up early not knowing what might be a head of your day this is way this office may be one of the few most exiting.

After getting up early with our picnic we such for two hours then we so the pride coming from another unsuccessful hunt.
We took our picnic away while looking what they may be doing all of a sudent we pack quickly the action have started.
Well this time it was just hog-lets one after the other well done girls but not enough for the whole pride.
Over in the distance we can see wildebeest zebras, topi among other animals.

I have always followed this pride very close since its not many people see them.

The guest said after all the action this is better than watching a football much.

I agree with you 

See you later in the evenig drive

Old Notchu

Dear Friends,
As you all know this boy is getting old but  he is still the boss of his sons to date.

His sons in the last few days went east with Papa Notch which is very scary for me and our friends, why?
That way is the mash pride is and more they heading that way, as you all remember the graces have little ones this may not be good news to them if notch goes back to claim his last kingdom.

As we follow him Notch there is no males in the maasai mara who can challenge them they are powerful boys.
I hope he can settle until the cubs with three graces are large enough to run away from this boys.
While we had been following the news of the ridge pride, After Snuggle tooth left the pride had accepted the boys but split into two, one lioness with the sub adults and the the other females are with Notch boys every now and then no more fighting the war is lost.
Some of the boys in the ridge pride are still not strong to defend or hunt for themselves still need help from there mamas poor things,
That is how it is in the wild if strong they will be the next power after notch ha.

See you all in my office 


Jackson Looseyia.

I had never had enough of this Cheetahs.

In all my drives when ever I meet up with Shakira its like meeting up with Kike when she was a live there is some energy around her I am sure we have  a lot to learn from them.
He job now is to look after the girls not to get into trouble not feeding them its to the contrary they are feed mum.
While the hyena was looking at them she did not eat fast, look out for danger every min she know not only super hyena are dangerous but also lions could be attracted by the all-am tomy in distress.
Well look at the two of the girls very big and strong if you check the size of there chest now you know the power in the three girls.
Our main challenge is to ID them from now on until they have separated from shakira.

I am off to see them and I will update up all on the marsh lions, Honey boys, the J5 , the Ridge pride among many other in our impressive office.
I love the maasai mara.

walking on Kileleoni hills.

The mara have a lot to offer, in the last few days I was walking in our hills to see what had happen in the last few years of what is so call progress.
I found a small group of Black and white colobus monkeys this species have been endangered by the deforestation in the whole country.
I was so happy to have meet them and spend time with this troop for 5 hrs in the forest hill.

There is plenty more to see around and with the drought it very dangerous to walk without real knowledge.
I am off to meet with rest of my friends in the reserve tomorrow will update you on the Big cats of the maasai mara.

shakira and the girls

Dear all,
Just a day after coming back the office this what had happen, the girls are fab they have make another kill anther owen shakira did not do any thing I watch the whole thing from start to end.
If you all remember the little treated cubs by every every thing include Jackals now they are so big the kill on there owen love every moment.
One thing they have not learn is to kill quickly and eat fast, as I watch with Shakira they still need to know a lot of other predators are in the mara.
One large hyena come strait to take over but could not a locate the prey at once and shakira was watching the whole time and by luck the eat this time I don't know tomorrow they will know before the part.
Yesterday evening they finish the meal and cross the talek towards the south with them good luck.

Best wishers to you all
