You get the feeling that you are the one in the cage as you tour the Masai Mara in the open-top Land Rover. The vistas go on forever and you are never far from animals. We saw the Big Five (Caped Buffalo, Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Leopard) and many more animals during our six days. One day we sat in awe as three adult elephants defended a baby elephant from a pride of lions. Another day we watched thousands of zebras cross the mara River. A fitting final experience was watching a pride of lions tree a leopard. The jackal it had just killed hung on a lower limb as the leopard took to the high limbs to escape the pride of 12 lions!
