I thought it would be interesting to share a collection of safari photos mainly from the Serengeti National Park showing just how close one can get to the big game (lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant and giraffe) in Tanzania. Sometimes a large zoom or telephoto lens is not at all necessary and a small pocket size camera is actually more advantageous.
A special thanks to returning safari guests Jim and Sandra who shared this spectacular video of a mother cheetah hunting a wildebeest on the Southern Serengeti Plains on April 28, 2016 . She later called her four cubs over to the kill. The Serengeti National Park is one the last strongholds for this critically endangered species and it’s always encouraging to see a mother being able to successfully raise and feed her cubs!
