After a quick lunch we head out to test our new photographic kit and broadcast equipment. Our first full day on safari in the Masai Mara National Reserve. Carel Verhoef (centre), Co-founder of Herd Tracker, a website that gives live, real-time updates of the great wildebeest migration, interviews Samwell Chege, a guide from Pollman's safari company during a live streaming feed on Herd Hot Air Balloon take-off. Even though the river crossing we expected did not happen, we saw so many wonderful wildlife sightings, including a lioness stalk, hunt and catch food for her cubs. And great fun to experience all of this with the CNN crew who was covering the world's first live web broadcasts from the great wildebeest migration.
We see plenty lion, elephant, buck and of course a few sizeable herds of wildebeest and zebra. We witnessed large herds of wildebeest, zebra and topi gathering at the Mara River edge, and then suddenly they all decided to cross. A dominant male of the Marsh Pride of lions takes a drink from a water hole, also occupied by a hippopotamus, in the early morning sunlight on the savannah of Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve.
Eleven years ago we imagined a website that will bring real people into long lasting relationships.
If you've ever been to a fresh food market, you can watch a vendor feeding lengths of cut cane between two rotating drums that press and squeeze out the natural sweet juice it contains.
With a few ice cubes, this makes a sweet pleasant juice on hot days – one can see how the ancient people would have noticed and desired the sugar from this sweet tall grass. White granulated sugar is one of the world's purest foods.
She figured if there were 'good' carbs and 'bad' carbs there must be some sugars that would get the nod of approval from nutritionists.
So I thought it might be helpful to list the many different types of sugar and whether they're any healthier for you or not (spoiler: there's not much between them).
Sugar cane is crushed in the mill and the resulting juice is purified and then boiled to produce a thick syrup.
From this syrup, raw sugar crystals are extracted, usually via centrifuge, leaving a dark, sticky liquid called molasses behind.
No crossings today, but they're definitely gathering in numbers on the East side of the river. Our first day on safari from Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp.
Our knowledgable, personable and enthusiastic guide Jackson took us to the deep south of the Mara Triangle where we were surrounded by herds of wildebeest.
Broadcast from Kenya's Masai Mara using Periscope, Internet users from around the world were able to witness Africa's greatest wildlife event -- the great wildebeest migration -- live on their mobile phones, tablets and PCs from 29 September to 5 October 2015. And we say farewell to some Ausie friends who've enjoyed the Masai Mara over the last few days.

Members of a group of lions known as the Marsh Pride, made famous by wildlife film-makers Jonathan and Angela Scott in the BBC natural history serialisation Big Cat Diary, yawns having woken from an afternoon nap in the shade of a tree in Kenya' “The Mara never disappoints” - that saying was certainly true today.
We also saw cheetah, a juvenile martial eagle, long-crested eagle, four of the big five in a single scene - and then enjoyed a night drive where we swapped some great stories with Jackson.
