David’s mobile camera trap caught a hyena passing by his tent last night and the Askari informed us that we had Lion about 200m from our tents, lazing up on the hill! So we all agreed for that to be our first stop on the way to Musiara marsh (and the home of TV’s ‘Big Cat’ Marsh Pride).
The afternoon game drive was a dream. 5pm – 730pm and we all swapped seats; Marian and I went to the front two seats behind Daniel. Perfect. What a view.
Sundowners were great too – us girls seem to have bonded well over our earlier meeting and the entire sunset was spent like schoolgirls in fits of giggles.
I managed to rip the side pocket off my combats at the dinner table by assuming it was held shut with Velcro. It even sounded like Velcro when it ripped! Definitely need more sleep. Marian suggested I asked the Masai if they had a sewing kit, to which Maurice (‘Mr. Drinks’) replied, “Give me the trousers and I will arrange it all for you, Hakuna Matata.” What service.
