The cultured pastures of Mara Naboisho Conservancy have yet again delivered. In some camps a repeat couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary, bringing their grown-up daughters could be permitted an indolent morning. Not at Valley Camp, not Peter or Maria or their offspring and particularly not Bernard Soit, their enterprising guide.
It takes some people years to see a lion bring down its prey, but not this family. This was barely out of camp: a favourite Valley daughter ‘Spot’ dragging down an adult wildebeest under the appreciative eyes of three young cubs. With the cruiser perfectly positioned Peter captured the action brilliantly, top job Peter, welcome back. Twenty five years is worthy of congratulations although I feel our alchemist Bernard turned your silver into gold that morning.
