I read on the airline magazine that the Maasai Mara/Serengeti ecosystem comprises less that 0.1% of the land in Africa put has 40% of the animals. That's mid boggling and I'm not sure I believe it. So I checked the land part first: The Maasai Mara/Serengeti is about 6,300 square miles. Africa is 11,660,000 square miles. So that's 0.o5% which is indeed less than 0.1%. As far as the animal part of the calculation, who knows? However, the 1.3 million wildebeest probably skew the data a bit. Suffice to say, the game density in and around the Maasai Mara/Serengeti is probably as good or better than anywhere in Africa.Your photos are amazing. I particularly liked the various views of the lions and the muddy buffs. Thanks for sharing.
So the Maasai Mara is a game reserve from my quick internet research. What is the game population/density like outside of this reserve? I'm just curious. I read a lot of this and that but have never and may never have the opportunity to go there to see for myself.
Yes, the old house in Karen, basically a suburb of Nairobi. Same house they used in the movie, "Out of Africa." I'll have to check and see if I have some photos and also check what my wife or niece have. To be honest, I wasn't overly impressed with the place, other that we had an exceptionally good tour guide that walked us all around the surrounding grounds and re-built shops, etc. We also go a short tour inside the house. which is the museum.Completely missed this thread when you posted it. Glad you reposted it on the other thread.
Your photo's are great. Thanks for sharing your experience with us.
As Foxi said. Could you share some photos from the Karen Blixen museum. Just to clarify, is that the one in her old house in Karen?
