Maasai Mara

An African Safari

The trip of a lifetime

I had the opportunity to go on an African Safari with my daughter. We camped in a luxurious tent just above the Mara River filled with hippos. We saw so many wild animals in their natural habitat. One night I heard a very loud grunting and chewing noise just outside my tent. I peeked through the window of my flimsy tent and I saw a three thousand pound hippopotamus just a few feet away grazing on some bushes. I laid in my bed and just listened in amazement. I didn't need any coffee the next morning as my heart was still beating fast from the night before.

    Beautiful photos! I was a bit afraid I might see "kill" pix when I saw the cover /title, but instead I saw wonderful photographs of amazing animals. You "shot" them the perfect way. Thanks!

    Timely story. And great to see these precious animals alive and roaming. Thanks for sharing. Gotta stop the poachers and trophy hunters.
