Serengeti – Tanzania
Ah the Serengeti (why do I always want to put two t’s in Serengeti?). In my mind nothing conjures up more images of African wildlife than the thought of the Serengeti.
We had one evening drive, then camped the night in the park where we were warned to shine a light out the tent if we had to go toilet, if you saw eyes shining back then hold it! Then we had a morning drive the next day before heading back, you could easily spend much longer there if you had the time and the money to do it.
On the evening drive I ticked off the last of my cat list, a cheetah way in the diastase (the shot below represents a heavy crop) and a servile (actually 2 serviles). We also saw our second leopard up a tree having a bite to eat, as we left her we saw two cubs at the bottom of the tree, unfortunately the light had long gone by now and they were too far away for the photo, but it was still a treat.
Then we camped under the stars and the milky way showed itself. I’d been looking forward to hearing animals run about our tent at night, maybe the odd lion roar, sadly this wasn’t to happen (or I slept through it!).
The morning drive gave us a lovely sunrise and I continued my theme of a giraffe with something unexpected in the background (in this case a bird that was buzzing about it, and is technically in the foreground with the giraffe).
