  • I went by air to Masai Mara last time, so I tried to land by road. It is too large, and it does not understand at all by land by the valley by the Great Rift. It is better to watch from the sky by air.

  • We drove past on the road to Masai Mara and back. The spectacle is large and grandiose. The rift stretches for 6,000 kilometers across Africa from north to south. There are several viewing platforms, which offer magnificent views. It is worth stopping and taking some photos. Downstairs, the valley is all plowed.
