Just back from a lightning trip to the Mara. Headed down the road on 19 April with our good friend Annabella Frachescon of Maniago Travel to accompany a group of Spanish journalists/photographers who had flown in to Kenya to publicise our tourist industry. The road is pretty awful in places but the engineers are hard at work resurfacing it so hopefully it wont be long before driving to the Mara is a lot more comfortable. Maniago Travel organise all our international travel tickets and transfers with Henry Mburi doing an amazing job ticketing for us. On this occasion we stayed at Leleshwa Camp (owned and managed by Joe and Gillian Charleson – you can find out more at www.leleshwacamps.com) which is only a four hour drive from Nairobi on the other side of the Mara to the Governor’s Camp area where we film Big Cat Diary.
