Maasai Mara safari overcrowding stresses Kenyan wildlife https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-58783025
Thanks, British. One of the downsides of tourism, or at least over-tourism.
On our trips we never saw a ‘gaggle’ like that except for the crossing of the river. In that case all the vehicles were well back and not a hindrance..
The most vehicles we saw like that was on our first K and T tour in 2007. However, this article mentions cheetahs. We literally didn’t see cheetahs for an entire Safari vacation. twice!
Last K and T, we saw a mom cheetah with six babies!
Not the Masai Mara (this is in Ngorongoro, in Tanzania) but when certain things are spotted a traffic jam can arise because the drivers all communicate amongst themselves. This was from our 2015 safari.
WOW we had nothing like that in the T & K tour just finished guessing is due to people not traveling so I'm very happy that the trip was very much devoid of caravans of trucks, the most trucks I saw together was 4 at a leopard sighting.
British - we saw many, many cheetahs, almost in every outing.
Hopefully those six Cubs we saw survived, though unusual, and have had some babies by now!
