Baby Animals of the Masai Mara

It has been baby animals galore on the plains of the Masai Mara in Kenya.

Professional wildlife photographer, Nick Dale, recently visited Cottar’s 1920’s Safaris Services for a classic Masai Mara safari complete with stunning views of Kenya’s endless plains and, of course, abundant wildlife. Excitingly, he spotted many baby animals preparing for a life in the wilderness. From big cats to primates and gentle quadrupeds, the Masai Mara grasslands have been brimming with new life.
