This Week At Angama #130 31 July 2020 Every year the migration unfolds in a unique way. From the time the zebra and wildebeest first arrive in the Mara, to their movements in general throughout this northern reach of their annual circuit, to when they dramatically start crossing the river in massive numbers; no two years are alike. Given Adam’s exciting blog from... By Tyler Davis
This Week At Angama #129 23 July 2020 Words simply cannot do justice when it comes to explaining the emotions attached to the arrival of the giant migratory herds into the Maasai Mara. This epic journey takes hundreds of thousands of wildebeest across the Serengeti ecosystem, culminating in extraordinary river crossings. This natural phenomenon is considered by many to be the pinnacle of... By Adam Bannister
This Week At Angama #128 17 July 2020 It has been surreal, over these last four months, to be the only car in the Mara Triangle. A real privilege and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. However, part of what makes the Mara such a special place is that it is a natural system and a stage on which animals get to perform. Unknowingly, these animals... By Adam Bannister

A good day for a jackal is a very bad one for an impala, and vice versa. [f 3.5, 1/500, ISO 200, -0.3] [f 7.1, 1/1600, ISO320, -1] [f 6.3, 1/1250, ISO 250, -0.67] [f 5.6,... By Mwikali Ndambo
This Week At Angama #125 26 June 2020 It’s easy to focus on what is traditionally accepted as the “exciting” part of a game drive, especially when you’re a photographer or film maker – the thrill of a hunt or a rare animal sighting are usually top of mind and with good reason. The pink-backed pelican below is an example of such a... By Mwikali Ndambo
This Week At Angama #124 18 June 2020 When out on safari, I usually have at least one particular animal that I’m hoping to see. There’s never really any specific reason behind this – it could be an animal I’ve never seen before or one that I haven’t seen in a while, or even an animal that I’m taken with at that particular...
