The last time we spoke about safari I shared with you some of my favoirte shots of The Lions of the Serengeti but there are some other amazing creatures in this Tanzanian National Park that I also want to share. Besides it being a lush climate and the dry season not having fully started I would credit our great animal sightings to the fact that we went on both morning and afternoon game drives so we could see a variety of animals at their usual times. Sightings included lions (which got their own post), zebras, hyenas, leopards, elephants, hippos, buffaloes, jackals, gazelles, and giraffes. Take a look at some of my favorite shots!
Over the course of our visits to Kenya and Tanzania we visited half a dozen national parks across the two countries and more than any other park on the trip we saw a ton of giraffe in the Serengeti. Take a look at my some of the close ups I was able to capture:
And while they are not the best photos we did get to see two leopards in a tree – one of the only ones around – who were poised for hunting. It was beautiful to see them gracefully leap out of the tree at a split second’s notice but then we lost it in the high grass. But still really cool to see it in the trees!
Which of these animals is your favorite?
