With a friend, both very serious photographers, I visited Mara North and stayed at Karen Blixen Camp. We spent 7 days doing photography leaving before sunrise and coming back after sunset.

About
Description

Karen Blixen Camp in the Masai Mara offers an authentic ’yesteryear’ experience for visitors wishing to gain that little extra from their safari. Set on the bank of the Mara River; the location is spectacular. Throughout the day elephants, giraffes, zebras and impalas come for a drink while a large hippo pod rest lazily in the river. The Camp gives a feeling of the early 1920’s era with beautiful and comfortable furniture.
