The “Jurassic Park” gates slowly creak open as one patiently waits in your safari vehicle. The sounds of Africa’s Big Five fill the sky.
Sarova Mara is a Game Camp located inside Kenya’s Maasai Mara. As you settle into your tent, the roar of a pride of lions is heard just beyond the electrified fence. Tiny forest deer, known as “Dic Dic”, are seen foraging for food, resting in the shade from the African sun.
I explore the area within the confines of the fence, find a place where I can sit and listen to the jungle, watch great birds surveying the scene from atop mighty Acacia trees, listen to the breeze from a trail. I ready myself for adventures in the mighty Mara, closing my eyes to the sounds of the African night.
