5 serval cat sightings in 4 days (Mara, December 2016)

We had asked out guide if we might really look for serval cats this time around on our 4 days in the Mara. Thankfully, in late December, the grass was still short and this made potential viewings even more likely.

 

We were rewarded with 5 sightings of 4 different cats in four days. In fact, we saw our first one within about 5 minutes into the Mara from camp on our first drive. Two of the sightings were us all alone with the beautiful creature.

 

Here's a compilation of some of those moments, including two successful "hunts", one right in front of our vehicle. At 3:20 into the video, we had a real close up with one. :)

 

 

Haven't had much of a chance to edit the photo yet, or put a watermark on it. Have several hundreds of these kinds of shots.
