Where I stayed
What I did
Serengeti National Park, Leopard carrying her baby, cheetahs
Success! We found them ail!. Could not have asked for a better day!
We saw our first cheetahs, a mother leopard carrying her baby in her mouth down a kopje, numerous lions, thousands of wildebeest on their annual migration with their ubiquitous zebra travelling companions, and many more. If you enjoy the photos, think of the buzz we got when we saw the animals up close and personal!
As we headed back to the lodge after a great day, some of us started to feel the effects of the tsetse fly. We had been warned not to wear blue or black. Not wearing either of these colours, and doused in insect repellent, I didn't experience their bites, but those who did, said they hurt! Throughout the bush we saw black and blue sheets of fabric placed to attract the tsetse flies, containing poison, to destroy the little blighters!
