Lion Sightings at the Lewa Conservancy and the Masai Mara Reserve

Brian has just sent in some photos that he has taken over the past few days from both the Lewa Conservancy and the Masai Mara Reserve, where he is at the moment. He reports that the lion behaviour he has witnessed in both areas has been absolutely amazing, as these photos nicely demonstrate! And yes, that’s Dee (Brian’s wife) with her iPad on her lap and a somewhat curious onlooker in the background!

The Sleeping Warrior

 

 

Brian and his wife, Dee traversed “The Sleeping Warrior” in the early morning cool of the day, experiencing some fantastic views of the Rift Valley, and passing some zebra upon their approach.  The distant lake had some excellent Lesser flamingos, there to feed on the small invertebrates and algae that give the birds their wonderful pink colour!

Exploring Bugaboos Provincial Park

After Brian completed his ‘guest guiding’ at the CMH Bobbie Burns Lodge in the Purcell Mountains last week, he and his wife, Dee, took off and established a remote base camp, just to the west of the Bugaboos Provincial Park in a very remote area.  For three days they explored the area.  The unique geology was especially interesting.
