Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and his immediate family at the weekend arrived Kenya’s Maasai Mara Games Reserve in two chartered planes.
The former president (pictured disembarking from the plane he was on) was on board with his wife, Patience(pictured right) and two of their children. The other plane was occupied by Kenyan security agents.
The immediate past first family were received by the governor of Narok County, a town in West of Nairobi, Samuel Tunai.
They are at the reserve for a three-day tour to witness the wildebeest migration, and were booked at the new Angama Mara Lodge at the Oloololo conservancy.
Tunai, who is also the Council of Governors tourism committee chairman, said more than 500,000 tourists from all over the world are expected to witness the spectacular crossing of wildebeest across the crocodile-infested Mara River.
Jonathan, who refused to speak with reporters on his arrival to the reserve, according to Kenya media, is the second dignitary to visit the reserve in less than a fortnight after the King of Swasiland, Mswati III. The king was booked in the same lodge six days ago.
