Masai warrior

[Liv] When I close my eyes,  I can see it.  It’s like I’m back in Kenya.  Back in the Masai Mara,  where animals as tall as trees roam the plains.  And Maasai Warriors, the guardians of the land,  show us their world.  This is our adventure.  – [Georg] Okay, first up,  if you’re new here, you’re probably wondering  what on earth we’re doing with our kids  on safari in Kenya.  10 years ago we were that young backpacking couple  you may have met in Southeast Asia.  But we always knew that when we had kids  we would keep traveling as a family to show them  this incredible planet of ours.  Muffin, where are we going?  – [Liv] I don’t know.  – [Georg] Yeah, (laughs) I don’t know either.  – Masai Mara!  – [Georg] Yay!  Let’s go.  – [Maasai Woman] What are your interests?  What would you like to see?  – Liv, what do you want to see, baby?  – Elephants!  – And lion, yeah.  – [Georg] We just came from Amboseli National Park  where we were practically overrun by elephants,  but we did not get to see any big cats.

Our First Game

Yeah.  – Going on our first game drive.  – [Georg] Ready, Liv?  – Yeah.  – [Georg] Are you shooting while nursing?   Otherwise I could never do anything else.  – Can the mama pick the baby elephant up?  And rock the baby elephant?  Cheetahs!  – That was amazing.  The cheetahs might hunt the wildebeests  or the little impalas.  And we’re just gonna wait and see what happens.  – [Maasai Warrior] Hunting here.  – Why?  – [Georg] Not long into our first safari  we got to witness the infamous   – What kind of tree do you think you’re going to plant, Liv?  – Flower tree.  – A flower tree?  – [Maasai Woman] And this one?  – And he’s just gonna try to not eat the dirt.  That’s his goal for today.  – We’re at Basecamp Masai Mara  and we’re going to go plant some trees.  So all of these trees around us  have been planted by visitors  and by staff of the camp  as part of like a reforestation effort that they have here.  Even the Obamas planted trees.  So we’re going to go plant trees just like them.

Astoishing Things

[Georg] One of the most astonishing things  to take place since Basecamp Explorer started  the reforestation program, is that  the forest has created its own micro-climate,  which makes it rain more frequently over the area,  which in turn leads to further growth  and even more biodiversity.  – [Tara] Did you eat dirt?   – Asante sana.  – Asante sana! (laughs)  – [Georg] On this safari,  we experienced something really special.  Mpanti and Jack got on the trail of a leopard mother  calling and finding her way back to her cub.  Apparently they can leave them for days on end  while they hunt for food.  But that moment, when the young sees its mother  it was incredible to see this level of affection  and joy in the animal kingdom.  Heavy-hearted,  it’s time to leave Kenya  and to get on with our next adventure.  Until we meet again.  – [Georg] Hang on.  What does the sign say?  – Where of the monkeys are.
