Kenya day 4: Samburu Game Reserve
April 3, 2013
No big cats this morning. It is nevertheless a fantastic game drive as we get very nice views of species endemic to the region above the equator ( reticulated giraffe, grevy zebra and generuk).
There are also many oryxes, one of my favorite antilopes.
A family of elephants heading towards the river. We follow them quietly and park the car at the river front until a second family of elephants arrives and we are trapped. Luckily the elephants pay little attention to us and continue to walk towards the water.
On our afternoon game drive there is a martial eagle (Africa's largest eagle) that has killed a dikdik (small antilope) and is guarding its prey.
Jackson spots a cheetah family in the high grass. We are the only car for a while but the young ones are not used to cars and the mother gets nervous and they move a little further inland. We are so lucky with Jackson as our guide as spotting them in the high grass was not easy.
