Guide Report – Migration Crossings and Big Cats

Greetings from Arusha, Tanzania. I have just finished my most recent safari with two guests Katherine and Karen who are from Chicago Illinois, USA. While in the bush we had a wonderful time together with some spectacular wildlife viewing especially with great migration crossing the Mara River and for the predators including lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena.

We stayed 2 nights at the Mara River Camp in the Mara River area of the North Serengeti, 2 nights at Migration Camp in the Lobo Valley area of the North Serengeti, 2 nights at Mbuzi Mawe Tented Lodge in the Central Serengeti and 1 night at Gibbs Farm in Lake Manyara. Please enjoy a collection of photos I took during this safari.

A Lion hunt was the highlight of the day. The lioness made a kill and later brings it to her cubs. It was really an amazing sequence of events.

Vultures taking over a Cheetah kill. This was in the beautiful Lamai Triangle of the North Serengeti, which is very close to the border with Kenya.

We witnessed another Lion kill. This Lioness took a position on the River bank to trap the Wildebeest who were coming to drink in the afternoon. She was successful as she caught a Wildebeest right in front of us.
