Mara Bush Camp takes a short winter break

Our year end season before ushering the New Year 2013, was full of surprises. The unforeseen heavy rains witnessed in November (could have been El'nino ?) was most welcome at Mara Bush Camp. The wide expanse of Savanna Grasslands were all of a sudden uniformly green with fresh grass and tissue paper flowers coloring every available space, a replica of the spring season experienced in Europe.

Mornings were marked by crystal clear blue skies, one could see far to the horizon with a mixture of blue and grey clouds, often rounded off by the beautiful rainbow as a sign of the eminent downpour in the afternoons. Occasional lightning and thunderstorms were the order of the day in the afternoons with the sun making brief appearances through the thick clouds. Big cats, Elephants and even Giraffes with lots of young ones roamed the plains, uninterrupted. The male lions shaking their wet black manes after the rains provided amazing photographic opportunities with the early evening light. Predator cubs pulling their mothers tails, jumping all over as well as Hippos bonding with their parents, were simply memorable sightings.
Contrary to the peak season (August / September), the reserve was less congested giving our guests a good opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of the African Savanna, coupled with diverse game and magnificent landscapes. The two rivers, the Talek and the Olare Orok, which our vehicles usually cross in search of game were flooded by the heavy rains. This however didn’t reduce the game viewing as there were fantastic game sightings around Mara Bush Camp, even the rarely spotted Caracal and the Serval Cat were seen not far off from the Camp.
This year’s Christmas at Mara Bush Camp was yet another special event, celebrated by guests with 6 different nationalities. Joseph, our head chef and his team left nothing to chance; they made sure that all guests enjoyed the festivities and took care of their every dietary request. Our guests were lucky enough to enjoy the beautiful weather on the New Years Eve, allowing them to dine outside. Light showers were however witnessed late evening. We took it as a god sent for the old year and a blessing for the New Year. Everybody waited patiently till midnight to welcome the New Year in the bush.
The 7th January marked the last day at the camp for our guests before our February / March season. After a quick inventory, the team closed the camp and returned to Nairobi to join their families. Our Maasai Askaris will relentlessly guard the camp until the end of January.  Our first guests will be welcomed on the 1st of February 2013.

The beautiful acacia trees along the banks of the river have attracted more than a 100 weaver birds which are now busy displaying their amazing weaving prowess. Our guests will be lucky enough to receive a warm welcome by the chirping and chatting sounds of the weaver birds in February. We recommend that you bring along your binoculars and camera for a closer look and to capture it forever on film.

Warm regards from Sabine and the entire Mara Bush Camp Team
