With Nickson being a safari guide on Tanzania's northern circuit for over 20 years, it is sometimes a little more difficult to shock or impress him with the natural world. But as always, the Serengeti demonstrates how the great battle for survival of the fittest rules supreme. While with clients in the far northern Serengeti in September, Nickson was game driving the Lamai Triangle area. At this time of year most clients are focussed on reaching a potential view point to wait patiently for one of the great river crossings to happen. This time was no different for Nickson, but when a scene of a lion pride on the hunt came into view, Nickson knew this one way going to be spectacular. With an average body weight of over half a tonne and the temperament of a moody mustang, this buffalo was not going to be an easy meal for this pride. With careful stealth and clear communication, the lionesses silently surrounded the animal. Once the lead female reached striking distance, the others closed in and the dance of the takedown began.

Opening up in time for the 2015 season, Naona Moru Camp looks like it is going to be an excellent high end camp in one of the most beautiful areas of the Serengeti. With 24/7 hot water, exquisite menus, WiFi, full board and fly in game packages, it is the perfect place for Maasai Wanderings clients to rest their heads. The tents are enormous and they need to be actually called suites at 12m x 7.5m, nothing is like it on the northern circuit.
