I recently returned from Tanzania, Africa, where I went for my sister’s wedding and 7 day safari on the Northern Circuit. I went with her company Duma Explorer who did a fantastic job. I went to Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara, Serengeti National Park, and the Ngorongoro Crater (the largest unbroken caldera in the world). We saw tons of lions, a few leopards (one walked right next to the car!), cheetahs, elephants, zebra, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles, vultures, 10s of 1000s of wildebeests (yes, those are gnus for you geeks out there), and many others. We got to see lionesses hunt, a cheetah hunt, and at one point she jumped on top of our car for a better vantage point! It was incredible.
I have posted a crapload (but a small portion of what I took) here. Check them out and enjoy! If you choose only one park to look at, pick the Serengeti folder – lots of great cat shots in there. Tim is on safari right now with the rest of my family (I had to go separate and come home early to start residency), and then he will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. I am sure he will have some amazing photos so be sure to check back for those.
