Tanzania Photography Safari

I had a call in the middle of the night last night – everything is just fine in Tanzania, but there had not been internet access out in the Serengeti.

It sounds like there have been exciting times.  Thunderstorms.  Cape Buffalo camped out next to Diane’s tent.  More exciting photography moments.  Can’t wait to see!

In the meantime, I’m posting a couple images that I was holding to go with Diane’s words (that never came).

This has been an awesome safari so far.  The group is doing well with photography and we have been treated to many rare experiences.  We saw the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, leopard, cape buffalo, lion) by day 2.  We watched and photographed rhinos mating!  Our guide has never even seen this in the 15 years he has guided.  Another rare sighting, the serval, stalked birds for a few minutes right in front of us.  Then there were zebras fighting and lions “dating”. More to come, moving now to the Serengeti.
