Day 6-9: Serengeti NP

A travel blog entry by nathanasi


... quite a sight, as well as countless elephants in Central Serengeti. We also saw our first cheetah which was calling out for her cubs or partner and waited patiently for a response. We saw several lions, hippos resting in their pond and a 5m crocodile oblivious to the zebra that were drinking water close by. We also caught a glimpse of the elusive leopard which are loners and spend the hot days nestled high up in ...

... minutes later. We pull into the valley and by the side of the road find a family of giraffes, standing about a metre from the jeep. Standing at the back, I feel like I could reach out my hand and touch their skin, with its stunning pattern like deep, cracked earth. They're such alien creatures, their long necks so ungainly and at the same time so elegant. Potentially I just relate to them because they look like me walking in heels. In the bushes, one of the Maasai walks ...

Everything rattles including our ...

Day 10 Serengeti

A travel blog entry by sarahrees


... was hilarious; we battled with sticks and Elaine (whose 60th it is today) did some good pen deals with the medicine man, Doctor Lucas. I also got a new bracelet from him for $2. Then we set off for the Serengeti. We had lunch near the entrance before a full afternoon's game drive. We had such a fantastic time; wildebeest in masses, hyenas, a zillion zebra, then off to find the lions. There was a pride on and around some large boulders. The large old male was on the ...
