Where is this Africa picture from?

Postby retireme » Thu Sep 29, 2011 12:18 am

was looking at the new gap video and contest. looks like gap has changed their safari vehicles since i last saw them, but what I am most curious about is where is this photo from in africa.

looks like it is some burial mound or something in the photo? i think i know most of the rest of the video but no idea where this image is from, has anyone been there?

The site appears to be the Maasai Mara in Kenya if I had to guess. Those vans with the pop up roofs look like the ones we used in the Mara when on safari when I was there a few years ago.

I think that's just a rock and not a burial mound...
