Day 18 THE MARA RIVER in the MARA TRIANGLE
In the early morning we head for the Mara Serena Safari Lodge on the banks of the Mara River. We are at the Tanzanian border so we are hoping to see herds crossing. We’ll be at this lodge for three glorious days so we will be able to go on drives and come back to rest, as we choose.
We pass T/K Rock, marking the Tanzania/Kenya border on the plains.
As we enter the Mara Triangle, we enter the part of the Maasi Mara reserve, regulated by the Trans-Mara District. The district has only one local authority, Trans Mara County Council. As we enter the Trans-Mara area, a Mwanza Flat Headed Agama greets us. This beautiful lizard is probably the dominant male.
Along the way, we see the ferocity of vultures in action.
Here they posture and fight for prime positions on a Cape Buffalo carcass. They puff themselves up and walk like Dart Vader to secure the best position.
