I know I mentioned in my previous post that I had not seen a cheetah and leopard in close range after more than 9 safaris. This encounter with the leopard was breathtaking, the leopard walked alongside our vehicle for 150 meters. After this we did get to see the Tsavo elephants that supposedly very different from those in Amboseli but i remember telling the driver I was okay I am ready to go home after the leopard:) We did pass through a certain area called the devils lava as the area of about 2kms is full of lava that has been there for years with no particular origin. strange
It now looks like I have a liking for Serena properties, well i kinda do, they do offer good resident prices however I have to say doing these trips made me realize the repetitive nature of their menus, it was good food all the same. My room had a great view of the watering hole which was really great. I stayed at Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge.
When you leave me alone in a room and no idea what to do to entertain myself ..I go all in I have to say I saw the leopard on my first game drive and thus besides our very own sun downer where I was the bar lady mixing the classic bush margaritas I stayed in and enjoyed the great views from my room. On our way out the driver took us to Mzima Springs where you go into a glass tunnel and view the fish from eye level. It was really a nice climax of the trip.
Tsavo West really had a great sunset that made the end of my trip really enjoyable.
