By Raphael Mollel – A mother cheetah with her cubs and other safari highlights
Greetings from Tanzania. My name is Raphael and I have just finished my safari with my guests David and Margaret from Michigan, USA. It was a very adventurous safari as we spent 10 nights in the bush with 3 nights private camping at Naabi Hill campsite among the wildebeest migration and all the big carnivores. Here are my pictures of just a few of the highlights.
My guests were very excited to see this mother cheetah jump on the bonnet of our vehicle. We ended up having a mother cheetah with her three cubs. It was amazing! This occurred in the Ndutu area of the South Serengeti.
Interesting fact: The amount of light which white strips reflect is equal to the amount which the black stripes absorb!
Here is a Black Rhino in the Ngorongoro Crater marking his territory by using urine.
These two wildebeest are fighting over their territory.
This is a striking picture of mist shrouding the beautiful Rumbe Hills in the Ngorongoro Crater.
This is Oldupai Gorge, which is a famous archaeological site.
It was around small marsh at Ndutu in the South Serengeti / Ngorongoro Conservation Area that this young male lion was walking near the lake and the reflection made for an interesting photograph.
