Kenya's Masai Mara

border="1" align="right" src="http://www.gadling.com/media/2006/04/masaimara.jpg" alt="" />CNN’s travel site is
featuring a really great
personal account of safari in Kenya’s Masai Mara
.  The author, Leigh Murray, was lucky enough to visit Kenya
during the Great Migration, when more than a million wildebeest, zebras and other animals cross from the Serengeti into
the Masai Mara in search of fresh grass.

It’s a great read, especially when you read of the author’s up-close
encounter with a cheetah.  Kenya is a country I’ve always wanted to visit (a desire made more potent recently by my
two-year-old’s sudden obsession with "The Lion King") — this article has me ready to call my travel agent
now.
