Mara

Mara, the other trip…
I have always preferred to travel mostly close to home, and even more often in my own dreams haunted by butterflies and dragonflies…
So when my friend Marcello Pettineo, with whom I collaborate for the magazine Nat'images for almost a decade to the realization of "our" Nature Notebooks (thanks to which I was able to experiment the concept of 4m² of nature), offered me to go with him to Kenya in the Garden of Eden that is the Masai-Mara I did not hesitate for a second to answer him favorably.
This extraordinary journey, filled with doubts at the start, turned out to be a real adventure punctuated by unforgettable encounters, with Mara the powerful and insoumistic brown river, with a most luxuriant fauna and flora and of course with our friendly and curious Masai hosts and guides; not to mention Tony Crocetta solid and warm man-orchestra who welcomed us in his bush camp: Melting Pot safaris.
I realized that few people had studied the small fauna that inhabit the savannah with such discretion. Herbs and flowers have, not surprisingly, also aroused a keen interest in me.
My 4m² door opens with happiness and wonder at the 1,510,000 du Masaï-Mara… How can we not fall madly in love with these still free and wild landscapes?
