Masai Mara: Stepping into the light

Few visitors to Kenya have more experience in the Masai Mara than the writer Brian Jackman. As his first book on the reserve, The Marsh Lions, written with Jonathan Scott, is about to be re-released on the 30th anniversary of the original, we thought it was a good time for him to write an extensive two-part feature on the Masai Mara of today, tomorrow and yesterday.

Driving Mr Darwin
Matt Phillips has been fascinated by Namibia since his first foray a decade ago as a backpacker on an overland truck. Subsequent visits to the wildlife haven of Etosha National Park only inflamed his desire to return again, as did a remarkable flying safari along the Skeleton Coast with the legendary Schoeman family. On his latest trip he planned to embrace a different side of Namibia – one from behind the wheel.
Through golden gates
Join Dale Morris as he swims, walks, drives and horse rides his way through the Free State’s Golden Gate Highlands National Park. But will he spot what he is after?
Living local at Lucky Bean
David Rogers decided to try something new for his family’s recent trip to Malawi. Instead of staying in a lodge, they decided to rent a cute local cottage in Cape Maclear. Here is their story.
Surrounded by greatness
Dale Morris and Nick Boulos team up to prove that a great time can be had both on and off Ibo Island. Dale sails out from Ibo on a novel dhow safari through the Quirimbas Archipelago, while Nick throws himself into the island’s Kueto Siriwala festival.
Going with the flow
Having experienced the Savuti Channel at its driest, James Gifford was perfectly placed to revisit and observe the remarkable transformation taking place while the waters are flowing.
