This picture of a male lion was taken in Kenya at one of the parks that we visited. ┬áSeeing lions is just amazing, it’s an incredible experience really unlike anything else, and it’s never EVER something that gets less special. The nature of Kenya is beyond beautiful, and I have to say I think that the lions are an especially good example of this beauty.

Chimpanzee

This photo was take in the Kibale Forest in Uganda. Seeing the chimps at Kibale is similar to seeing the gorillas at Bwindi impenetrable forest; in order to see either of these amazing animals you need to trek, which means walk through the forest (no paths) and follow a tracker until you find what you are looking for. When we went we had a little bit more difficulty seeing the chimps than we had seeing the gorillas, but as with seeing any animals, it really just depends on your luck. Even though it was a bit hard, we still got a really good look at the chimps, and the trek was absolutely beautiful. As with seeing the gorillas, you want to make sure you are prepared before you do the trek; bring water and make sure you have appropriate hiking attire. I recommend a go if you’re up for the hike!

Elephant in the Field

This photo was taken at Samburu National Reserve in Kenya. Samburu is a great reserve, it’s a different sort of environment than you get with some of the other parks. It’s really hot here, so the vegetation isn’t particularly green, which can make it a bit harder to spot certain animals. However, I highly recommend this reserve; we’ve been there twice and have had nothing but good luck, the animals are usually out in the mornings and evenings (when you normally go on game drives) because it can get so hot during the day.
