After a day to recover from Kili, we headed out on safari with the same company. It was a pretty basic affair, with me still not managing to sample that luxurious type of safari I'd pictured in my mind - camping in some of the most basic campsites we'd been too wasn't my fave way to do safari, but needs must !

We had a great time and it was good fun cruising around in our own 4x4 with our heads out of the top trying to spot animals, but unfortunately the extent of our guides tracking skills was how to spot other land rovers ! In other words, he was the safari equivalent of having some kid leaning over your shoulder to copy down your answers in a spelling test ! Anyway, as you can see from these pics, we still saw loads of animals, including lions eating a wildebeest kill (although obviously the battery ran out on my camera at that fairly crucial moment!?) and cheetah. No leopard for us though, which left us having seen 4 of the big 5 which isn't too bad.
