Narasha and her Boys.

Narasha and her Boys

Before I call it a day i went on with my beloved we found Narasha and her family finishing a Kill.
Earlier someone said we have seen the three Brothers meaning Honey boys, so I went looking for them to my surprise it was not them but a good surprise of Narasha.
My wife and Kids could not believe what they had seen in one day, I said to them its not like this in every Game drive, now the sky is getting black with rains we must go home now we had a good day love I said to them all,

One hour after we went away from the reserve I went on another road like I will always do my extra mile,

guess what yet a final surprise for all of us Leopard, just before we drove up towards Kipeleo,
We believe this is the best Christmas present for our family in years.

It had been a great day we must go home now for our sundowners.

I wish you all the best in this day and night may the Blessing arise to you all and bring more joy for your families and friends,

Best wishers from Me and my Family,

Jackson Looseyia.

The Other Half of the day,

As the Day went on I meet up with Notch boys, as you can see what can you do to wake them up?? haaaaa.
Just doing what lions are best doing Sleep,

Arriving to where they have been sleeping I can smell the dead hippo for almost half a Km from where they are,
Every one of them was full to the rim if they have one I mean they had the main corse, pudding and more.
Notch too which most people think he is Notch was matting however the young female look like she is in Milk, I just hope the cubs are ok.

Wait for the final day.

Jackson Looseyia.

Joshua the King of Mara North
Dear all,

Just on my few days guiding at Mara North I have found great sighting of lions and Leopards,
I went out from up North of the conservancy to look for Joshua and his brother and lucky I have found them.
Now the two males have taken complete residents in this area near C &P camp call Elephant Pepper.
How wonderful to get off the road going to Mara Rianta and Joshua and his brother, three lioness are relax and happy.
I was happy to see the rangers on patrol when ever they see more than two cars with any predator well done guys its the way forward.

One thing I am still finding out was the messege this lion send it to me I think you can also tell some thing is not right.

He is saying I am annoyed you let them in again meaning the cattle, for about a month the rangers agree for cattle to grass in the core area for nearly two weeks and our pride was not that happy about this arrangement some thing that must stop if we are believers of conservation.
We all agree yes and Today I went there not one cow on sight well done guys its a sign of hope when we see lions and leopards walking during the day without any threats from the Human activities.

The glory of the mara is coming back again through the new conservancies.

We still have a long way to go,

Lisbey one of the Marsh Female
Dear Friends,

It have been a long time since I have seen the marsh pride, I believe they are all together under the watch of Romeo and Bibi,

Just found some members a few days ago, Lisbey and two of her sons right at bilashaka,
The boys had grown well thank good for there Mama she had been looking after them since they broke out of the Main Pride,
Most of the time the main Pride is at the marsh and they have a lot of babies with them,
The older Cubs now adult are near bilashaka most of the time, and just below where this Laga joint the marsh for those who know the mara well.

Some New male are not far from them but still afraid of Clawed and Romeo it will not be long before Romeo is seen off by the up coming males since Clawed is getting old know.

Our biggest Challenge is the encroachment of Settlement around the Reserve boundary more more villages had been build in the last few months with to me is not good news.
We just hope Mara North will succeed because it will give more Shelter to our pride as it get bigger and bigger,

South of the Bilashaka is Notch and his Sons no way the young Males will ever Dream going south the only option left is towards the George.

Have a good Day in the office,

Jackson Looseyia.

The Migration of ngu is going back to Serengeti

Dear Friends,

We have all been very busy in the office with so much going on from guiding to hosting and family time,

The migration this year had prove to be the best we have seen in Seven years, Our Cuts are busy Shopping, I mean every lion leopard and Hyena are full cant even move without having another wildebeest,
However this is not for long as the Migration head South, now flat out crossing the rivers being Talek or Sand River and the mighty Mara River,
One thing we have witness is the death of wildebeest this year at the Crossing so much I do not want to visit the river, its just filthy with with bodies every where.

Have a good weekend,

As I mention before the straggle of our cheetah in the mara still is not as many compare to what the area can take,

Recently I meet up with new cubs near Olkeju Rongai two different mums with 8 cubs not bad at all however as you know cheetah cubs are so venerable at this stage it look like near the Serengeti is best for there breading.

More news for the office soon.

Well after some long hours Looing for the leopards the J5 save the day, Olive young boy Nkayioni happen to be on the banks of the Talek river and what a Joy for me and the people I was guiding.
We sat there for some time with this young male leopard, he was hunting some small animals dik diks and Young Impalas.
Before he got in any luck we had to move on thank you Young Kijana for coming out for us.

The leopard had not servad as much as the lions and Cheetahs in the Savanna, 
Like any of our big cats if we are not there to care for them too we will have the same cry in a few years.
Its the cheetah we are most concen than any thing in Africa now.

On my way to our Homes I meet up with a mama with her cub a long side the rest of the Olkiombo pride near Double crossing.
What a trite for this Lioness to bring this precious cub near the Road.

I do wish to meet up with the rest today on my long day trip in such of the our beloved friends,

Mara newS

Dear Friends,,
Once again we are back to wetness the action on the mara, Our lions at last had got what they need after a long time food, you can see this cubs from Notch Pride or Paradise tack in to the meal.
Notch pride had split into two now but only the females not the males, two females killed this wildebeest then taken over by three and cheese the two far away, the cubs came in and no trouble from the females.

Then this powerful boys are still the dominant group of cheetahs in our area no one can challenge them still,
With the migration being here no problem with food supply therefore a lot of action after every three days if you follow Honey boys.
Still the cheetah are rear in the reserve if they go mmmm we will struggle to see some cheetah,
Shakira is still in the conservancy and her cubs which I think may be going between the two countries Kenya and Tanzania.

Olive on the other had are doing well we have seen then in the last two days successful hunts and the boys Paja and Nkaiyoni is going strong no worry about them.
Not gone yet they will stay for a little while being boys.
There father Golden balls is with them a lot of the time we sow him with Olive yesterday hunting at together rear thing to witness.

Salaams to you all
and hope to see the marsh pride, Shakira, Saba, and Olkeju ronkai pride,

Good day in the office.

The Migration is here but not all,

Dear friends,

After such long waiting from the mara Residents as well as viewers like me finally the food arrive.
The migration come just on time the cubs are looking very thine and there mamas asking what can we feed you babies.
Thank God there is one who care for all.
Wildebeest from the loita and Seregeti had to come to meet in the mara reserve, most of the Wildebeest had gone to mara triangle but lost still in the area and will continue for a while.
As much as we love the action when the zebra and wildebeest arrive the best is site in the middle of them and listen observe as the world goes buy this some of my best moment of all in my office.

Regards to you all,

Jackson Looseyia.
