Serengeti

                 


Lions Lions Lions!!!  And a Leopard.  The Serengeti is the real thing, I suppose.  Just awesome.  Sleeping in a tent in the middle of the veldt with big animals wandering in and around the flimsy tents is pretty cool.

Nothing can beat driving around at 6.30 am as the sun is rising in the Serengeti. It was one of the best experiences of my life seeing so many lions and cubs. The highlights were seeing a group of lionesses with nine or ten cubs walk straight next to the vehicle. They really are amazing animals.
