On our 20 hour safari in Kenya and our 12 hour one in Tanzania we saw a lot of Lion action. This is what our guide called the honeymoon. Here you see the kiss.
And then, 13 seconds later, “See ya babe, I am outta here.” She took a hike and laid down across the road. He followed and laid down close by waiting for the next invitation.
This is actually in Tanzania, by Lake Manyara, It was a nice site indeed with the Cape Buffalo, Zebra, gazelles and Pink Flamingos.
Next it was hippo action. It is actually kind of rare to see one up and moving. They are usually lying in a heap in by the edge of the water.
It was difficult to get a picture with you and the animals in the same frame. This is the best we could do, but the elephants are way off in the background. We saw a ton of elephants in Tanzania.
And a ton or two of wildebeests and zebras in Kenya. We drove through herds and herds like this. They kicked up a storm getting out of the way of the moving vehicle. We were told there is over a million wildebeests in the Masimara and 200,000 zebra before the great migration. This was the typical scene, as far as you could see on a flat plain in any direction. Absolutely amazing!
Just before this scene where we could get a few pictures we were told that a crock had grabbed one of the wildebeest, but the wildebeest got away. When we got to watch there were no crocks and it was a clean run. So wonderful to see even a small part of this great episode of nature.
Next week more on where we stayed and our “stuck” story. Come along and safari with me. Comments are welcomed.
