Well this was a visit to Lion Central, they were right in our faces. The wildebeest and zebra herds were there too but I gather that we had missed their peak by a couple of weeks. The Grumeti River was not running and is far smaller than the Mara and only had scattered stagnant, albeit substantial, pools. These had huge crocs but I cannot imagine the herd crossings here to be as spectacular as at the Mara River.

“You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You're on your own.

And you know what you know.

And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” ― Dr. Seuss.
