The next day was a long one – 10 hours on the road in search of the Great Migration.<span><span> Today we saw lots of babies – giraffes, elephants, bat-eared foxes and hyena.<span> We observed a pair of mating lions and saw another cheetah, which the guides and drivers were expert at spotting.<span> We finally found the giant herds of migrating wildebeest and stopped for lunch within view.

In the evening we dined al fresco on the plains as a Maasai warrior explained the finer points of his culture.<span> Before dinner we each cooked our own bread over the campfire!<span> The meal was fabulous, ranging from traditional African dishes to continental cuisine, and we sat out long after dark.<span> At one time we could see the shiny eyes of a passing herd of wildebeest.<span> Later the hyenas would sing us to sleep with their whooping cries.
