This Place was nice and had a lot of birds to see but since we are more interested in the larger animals and not any birdwatchers it was not really for us.

The whole experience of the Mara is so beautiful because you have such a vast difference between the plains, the mini forests and the swamps. The swamp was so green and lush and felt like it was an adventure.
