Governors’ Camp Game Report, Masai Mara, February 2012
February was marked by cool mornings and hot days with light scattered rain. Most afternoons saw the arrival of a strong north easterly wind shaking the trees, the Warburgia (African green heart) has dropped much of its fruit in some areas of the forest. Some of the Warburgia trees have even fallen over with strong winds. Morning temperatures averaged around 16°C and midday temperatures reached 32°C.
