We left the Mara Serena Safari Lodge a little earlier than usual for the morning game drive just in time to catch a gorgeous Sunrise over the Maasai Mara Savannah. We headed towards the Mara river scanning the horizon for game, when we noticed a couple of Topi calves walking in the tall grass.

We waited for them to emerge from the grass, and one of the calves turned around to look at us out of curiosity, making for a nice picture. We reached the Mara river in time to see the crocodiles sunbathing,

We zoomed in on the biggest crocodile while it sunbathed nonchalantly. We turned around to catch a glimpse of one of the hot air balloon making a descent into the distant horizon. Coincidentally if you look closely at the feature image (first image), you would notice the hot air balloon as it takes off for the morning balloon safari over the Maasai Mara plains.
