Featured Story

Nature Continues To Heal 28 April 2020 The Mardi Gras (call it what you will) migration season is, you know, when the two million wildebeest, zebra, eland and Thomson’s gazelles arrive along with thousands of excited tourists and their guides. In my opinion, The Migration is nature’s greatest celebration. Yes, there are a lot of tourists and yes many of them (and... By James Hendry
A Chaotic Carnival of Wild Abundance 12 August 2019 When I last left the Mara in March, the sea of red oat grass was dotted with floating pachyderms and topi marooned on termite mounds.

This Week At Angama #75 12 July 2019 It’s official – peak season has begun and is in full swing. This is heralded by two indisputable facts: the wildebeest are in the Mara by their tens of thousands, with hundreds of thousands more on their heels, and we are running at top speed at Angama. This week’s review is a collaboration, with Jeff... By Tyler Davis
