March 1, 2009.
This morning we left the Losho Mara camp for a game drive through the Masai Mara National Park. One of our vans was giving us trouble and I was surprised to see a Masai warrior leaning into the van working on the engine.

When he straightened up I saw that it was Stonic Koipah, our lead driver and protector. This is his area and his people. At the clinic in Narok I saw his mother, father, grandfather, sister,

sister-in-law and other Koipah's of uncertain relation. Although he lives in Nairobi this is where he is at home, where he killed a lion with spear and shield when he was a teenager. He is quite a guy.

The pictures if the game drive speak for themselves.
