Exploring Tanzania February/March 2017

Post 4 – Weather has such and impact on landscapes.  There is just no such thing as “bad weather”.  It’s nice to have a variety, and we did.

This is our last post on this trip. We hope you will join us on one of our future trips to Tanzania.  And if you are just starting the blog, please scroll down through posts 1-3.  The first photo in post 1 I have in my head all the time. It’s my “go to” space when I need a boost.  Following are some miscellaneous animal photos, some of them quite entertaining.

It’s so much fun to watch the interaction between moms and babies.  Sometimes we like to capture the relationship and sometimes it’s fun to just compose artistically.

The adult female lion left this bundle of cubs to endure a downpour.  They changed positions and took turns getting pelted by the rain.  They looked so miserable, no cover for miles.
