The Serian festivities came and went very quickly this year but just to give you all a few highlights:
Christmas Eve was spent out on the great Mara plains watching the sun go down, sitting around a lovely bush fire before heading back to camp for a scrummy roast ham dinner.
Sundowners overlooking the escarpment
On Christmas Day we celebrated in the evening with Christmas carols, Crackers, Christmas lights and a Roast Turkey.

Boxing Day we had the pleasure of a magnificent sighting of Zawadi right outside Ngare who was very relaxed and felt right at home with us there watching her.
Our resident Genet came to vist on Christmas day to see what Santa had bought - beef fillet! :)

As elegant as ever
Then we skip a few days and it takes us to New Year’s Eve. We tried to do a dinner out under the stars but alas that did not last long before the rains chased us inside.

This however this did not dampen our moods and we set everything up inside and continued there and had a mouth-watering beef fillet.
After dinner we had some Moran’s come in and do a little singing and dancing for the guests. They danced their way around the table before we all chinked our bubbly together and said Happy New Year (or Mwaka Mpya Wenye Mafanikio) and lit our sparkles to write 2012 in the air.
Wishing you all out there a year filled with love, happiness and full of adventure! Happy 2012 – bring on the good times! J
