“Imitation is the best form of flattery.”
Masai Mara’s rolling grasslands offers one many many amazing sights…seeing the ‘Big Five’ – The Lion, African Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino- is a life changing experience.
However I was really amused to see this antenna tower in the middle of the unending greens. There are several towers across Masai to provide coverage to the natives around there. But the ‘twist‘ to this particular antenna standing tall in the middle of a plateau is that it doesn’t look like one. It is disguised as a very very very tall tree. Infact so real is this ‘tree’ that weaver birds are fooled into making their ball-like nests on it’s metal branches! The metal fence around the tower is meant to keep out the elephants from using it as a back scratching post! Kudos to the company that put it up in this fashion to minimize the human footprint in this beautiful nature reserve.
