By Francis Peter – Events From The Bush
Greetings from warm and sunny Arusha, Tanzania. My name is Francis Peter and I am a driver-guide with Africa Dream Safaris. Having just completed my most recent safari (March 18th to March 28th) , I can tell everyone that the wildlife viewing in the Serengeti especially for the big cats and also the great migration has been extraordinary this March. We have received a sufficient amount of rainfall lately, which has transformed the Serengeti plains into a lush green oasis. This has attracted many difference species of herbivores and likewise good concentrations of carnivores.
My guests this time were two couples from the United States named Susan and Jeff & Ruthanne and Kirk. We enjoyed 10-nights on safari with 3 nights at Mbuzi Mawe in the Central Serengeti, 3 nights at Ndutu Lodge in the South Serengeit, 2 nights in the Crater at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge and 2 nights in Tarangire at Kikoti Tented Lodge. All the game viewing was great but nothing can compare to the Serengeti currently. Here are a few pictures I have taken.
The wildebeest Migration at Ndutu, South Serengeti.
- Here is a cheetah who was chased up a dead tree by a group of wildebeests. This was in the Kusini Plain, Southwest Serengeti.
- It was early morning on Kusini plains (southwest Serengeti) when this pregnant lioness hunted down the full grown wildebeest. It was amazing!
- These giraffes seemed to be posing for a picture. This was on the outskirts of Moru Kopjes between Olubaye Mountains and Mbalageti river circuit in the Central Serengeti.
- A spotted hyena trying to drag the whole wildebeest column. This was in the Eastern Serengeti.
- Buffalo in the Ngorongoro Crater.
