We didn’t know what to expect from our safari, we’d been so busy preparing for the climb up Kili we just booked a safari and didn’t do a whole lot of research. Luckily, it worked out fantastic. Since Melanie recommended Skova we went with him and had a great time. We saw 109 lions which even Skova said was a record. We saw the big 5, the rhinos were pretty far away but we saw 3 of them which is cool because they are super rare and endangered. Here are some photos from the Serengetti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara.
I just wanted to add a quick ‘animal count’. I mentioned the 109 lions and 3 rhinos but I figured I should say we saw 6 cheetahs and 2 leopards. Three of the cheetahs were a mother and 2 cubs who were adorable but the lighting was bad and I couldn’t get a decent photo. As for other animals like giraffe and elephant, we saw too many to count. For zebra, wildebeast, and buffalo I’m sure the number was well into the thousands, and this was not even the migration season when things are supposed to be even more spectacular.
If you want to read the ‘caption’ of the photo click on it. That is one thing that has changed with this website.
