This is a photo of a Male Highland Gorilla, taken in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda. This was the alpha male, and he was really incredible to see. He wasn’t really doing too much, mostly just eating, but seeing him walk around was amazing, and he was really pretty big. They’re called silverbacks because of a distinctly silvery saddle like patch situated in the middle of their backs. I wrote a post about the gorillas before, but I really want to reiterate how astonishing it is to see them. I don’t know that i’ve ever been so in awe in my life, they’re really magnificent creatures. If you have the money, and the time, you have to go, seriously, I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Moving Spots

This photography was taken at Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. We went out on an early morning game drive and found this young cheetah along with it’s brother, just laying down along side the dirt road. We found these two not too far from where we were staying, a place called Fig Tree Camp. The camp is beautiful, the staff were really friendly, and the location was great; we saw tons of wildlife on the game drives that we took from this hotel, and the view from our tent cabin was really beautiful. Maasai Mara is my favorite park, and having stayed in more than one hotel there, i’d still recommend this one, it’s further from the gates of the park than some of the other hotels, but it’s well worth the drive.
