We counted 17 lions in one pride!

Landed at the airstrip and 2 hours later we’ve got the Wildebeest migration in full swing. The next day, our first full day, we get Lion and Leopard. The next photo is a view from our patio. I know it’s a tent, but I’ve stayed in a lot of hotel rooms that were miserable by comparison. I’ve also drank in a lot of bars that could not match the quality and selection of the drinks at Buffalo Springs. A very pleasant camp run by wonderful people, and a lovely area, we wished we could stay another day.

Nice lion action the next day. Note the nursing cub. No problem finding Cape Buffalo. These two were part of a large herd. Somewhere under that “flock” of vultures is a carcass of some kind. A little later we found another carcass that the lions were not done with yet. We counted 17 lions, I think. Dana’s favorite was the Giraffes.

A big buck Impala with his harem. Hunter decides to “get down” with the Masai. According to Ally, our guide, he does not see African Wild Dogs even once a year. You don’t see Elephants next to the average swimming poor. Treetops, another magical place. Cheetahs! Another uncommon sighting.

Hope you like the photos as much as I loved my safari!

    Beautiful lion picture. I know it’s a long way off but I am getting excited for my safari next October with ADS (at least 2013 is right around the corner).

    Darcy, These are my pictures and my travel companions, a few of approximately 2500 photos. Glad they got you excited. it was a trip of a lifetime. Unlike you I woke up one morning and decided to go. ADS could not have done a better job under the limited timeframe, not to mention we addes my 19 yr old at the last minute. Email if you have any ?’s. For me planning a trip has always been 1/2 the fun, this was not planned and filled w/ surprises at each juncture. You will not be disappointed. Email anytime, Dana
