In Pictures: The Baby Animals of Kenya’s Masai Mara & Samburu

Cheetah_Baby Animals_Kenya_Africa_Kellie_Netherwood.jpg

Kenya provides some of the most spectacular wildlife sightings in the world, in an unpredictable environment where each creature fights to survive against the elements and each other on a daily basis.  Game drives in locations like the Masai Mara and Samburu, where I spent time last year, often yield exhilarating results as birds and animals hunt, kill and feed in their quest to survive.

But these types of sightings – where animals are behaving uninhibited in their natural environment – can be an emotional roller-coaster, as the survival of one creature leads to the demise of another.

So sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and enjoy less complicated sightings; the ones that soften the hardest of hearts with their cuteness overland; the sightings of baby animals learning to live in the wilderness of Kenya.

    Hi Kellie,

    Your images never fail to inspire. And you always seem to go to places on my bucket list which I am happily tackling. Africa is next on my list with 6 weeks in South Africa, Tanzania and Botswana coming up in just 8 weeks time.

    So more viewing of your fabulous images for sure.

    All the best
