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.
