Here are some more images from the Safari. I can't begin to describe how amazing it was to see these animals in the wild. Its one thing to see them at a zoo or even the San Diego Wild Animal Park, its another thing entirely seeing them in their natural habitat. Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them.
I know there are no animals in this image but I just love it. Africa, Kenya specifically, is such a beautiful place and this image is so perfectly Kenyan to me.
The elusive leopard. All the Kenyans have been amazed that we got to see one. I'm amazed that he looked right at me. I was praying the whole time that it was in focus. There's nothing worse than an amazing image that turns out to be soft. I lucked out and its a sharp as it gets.
There were a million zebras. So many that we were actually bored of them by the end.
Freaky water buffalo. They're one of the more dangerous and aggressive animals in Africa. As you can tell I was pretty close. I was in the safety of our Land Cruiser though, with our very capable driver, William at the wheel.
Lots of giraffe as well.
I forget what kind of monkey this was. Anyone care to clue me in?
I LOVE this shot of the wildabeast. There were probably a couple hundred within a few hundred yards of this one but this one was all alone and with the dusty air in the back ground and the small trees dotting the land it was just perfect.
