I guess I’ll start with sunset.
Some girls out for a stroll.
Zebra with some hitch hikers. I don’t remember which little birds these are.
These are oxpeckers.
I suppose most of you have seen enough of these wildebeest, but the gatherings of wildebeest were enormous and their lines were endless.
I love photos taken in late afternoon light just before the sun sets.
Hyenas, which I’m quite fond of.
Thompson’s gazelle with what looks like a fairly new fawn. They are so hard to resist!
This was a totally unexpected find. There are just a few black rhinos in the entire Mara. They are highly endangered so you can imagine our excitement in finding one. They are very skittish and will not hang around if they are aware that there are any people close by.
Seeing the cape buffalo up close and personal (well, not too close!) was as awesome as I thought it would be. These guys can be very dangerous. Even lions are afraid of them.
Oxpeckers are always on the buffalo.
These two bulls were making a very half hearted attempt to spar. It was practically slow motion!
Elephants were few and far between. This little group was outside my tent when we returned from a drive.
As you can see, they are usually quite far away and always seemed to have some destination in mind.
These are bushbabies who came to dinner every night. The little black one was smaller, its fur was rather ratty looking, but s/he was clearly in charge. Whatever bushbabies were there before the black one arrived were quickly chased off with lots of scrambling and screeching. They are not good pictures but the best I could do in the darkness.
See, it does get a little crowded….
Okay, on to cats.
