Wow, Ramadan seems to be really slowing me down!
Alright, moving on! More photos of the Mara. Given the fact that we spent two days in the most densely packed animal reserve on the planet, 1 post (or even 2) can no way convey all the amazing things we saw. It’s one thing to see a lion sitting across from you, but a completely different experience to hear it roar, get up, stretch, and come sit down next to your safari car. We all learn about the wildlife of the Serengeti while growing up. In fact, I don’t think anyone reading this blog has not been through an ABC book that has L for lion and G for Giraffe (darn Apples have a monopoly on the As though ;P Pity, so many better tasting alternatives to apples… antelope, alligator…). Dammit, I’m fixating on food again. Can Ramadan be over already?
Oh look! It’s a two headed giraffe with six legs!
Hmm, hundreds of zebras in the field and only one of them bothers to look over. Humans might think wildlife is interesting, but I guess wildlife considers pretty boring. I don’t blame them. I find being human pretty boring as well.
Ostriches look so wrong from the back.
A desi aunty looks around at the animals for the slightest sign of weakness…
These three cheetahs are brothers. They’ll hunt together, sleep together and pretty much hang out together all the time. The only thing that could break them up? Well according to our guide: female cheetahs. Damn women…!
This guy owns the jungle… err I mean Savannah. If he gets up, you back off!
Oh Hai! This be how hoomans does sleep?
While the birds here are nothing like the ones at Navisha
, you’ll still find one or two eying you as you drive past. That’s one sharp beak… 0_0
A very safari scene… A herd of giraffes standing around a water hole. This is the time when this is the only time when these animals are vulnerable. A well timed pounce and a cat can grab the animals neck…
On the Prowl!
Nights in the Mara are beautiful too. With no cities or lights for hundreds of kilometers, all one has to do is look up and see the sky as our ancestors saw it…
