Ulloo9 - Kenya
Wildlife at it's best
(Raj) On our way to the Masai Mara we stop for a breather. This is the view of the Rift Valley where all the action is - as we shall see. The afternoon is pleasant enough, just right as far as the temperature went, but the ride ahead would be quite bumpy.
This is their world not ours
Once I rationalised it the feeling was "We are outsiders here and this world belongs to the animals". Putting it into words will not do - just go there and experience it yourselves!
"My friends you have seen a lot of action!"
"Raj, there are animals out there!"
Dinner finished I left the Ulloos to go and use our chalet bathroom. After fifteen minutes the Ulloos returned and asked "were you stopped by the wardens at the door of the lodge and asked to be lead to the room?" Well no. There were no wardens when I left so I walked through the garden by my self. They told me "we were stopped and escorted. He shone his torch at the bushes and there were all these eyes there".
OK I responded, I wasn't born yesterday and you don't get me on this one!
"Pick up that torch and have a look for yourself!" So I did. And there in the bushes lurked tens of eyes looking at me. "Oh hell!"
Within minutes of closing and locking the door secure shut we heard, quite close by, a blood curdlelling roar of some sort and went silent. Until Sudesh asked "Did you hear that?"
