  • Zebra and Wildebeest graze in harmony as they eat different parts of the same grass.

The camp has an amazing variety of wildlife present in its surrounding area. Recently seen wildlife includes Buffalo, Hyena, giraffe, cheetah, wild dog and elephant.  An interesting fact about the African Elephant is that it is the world’s largest land animal.  The biggest can be up to 7.5 meters long and 3.3m high at the shoulder, weighing 6 Tonne.  That is a jaw dropping 6000 kilograms.  The Mara River is also home of the The Mara River crocodiles, the biggest crocodiles in Africa.
