Weaver birds nests in a tree in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. The male weaver bird builds the nest. His partner inspects it, and if it is not up to scratch, it gets booted out of the tree and the boy bird must try harder. So underneath these trees are good places to look for interesting bush mementos. The weaver bird is a pretty yellow, at least the one I know.
Wildebeest at Ngorogoro Crater National Park in Tanzania. You can see the crater rim in the distance. There is a big ecosystem of animals who live year round in the crater. The wildebeest in Tanzania take part in an annual migration of about 1.5 million animals who follow the rains from Tanzania across the Masai Mara into Kenya, and back again.
Thomson's Gazelles in the afternoon light at the Serengeti.
A lion parked under a safari vehicle in the Serengeti. There are many lion in the Serengeti, so many in fact that after a while one turns to searching for the more elusive cats such as leopard and cheetah. The people in this safari vehicle had parked some distance away from the lion, and he had gotten up to settle into their shade. So they were a bit stuck. They were all Italian and jabbering away non-stop. We watched for quite a long time, then finally left, who knows how long they were stuck there. In Tanzania the tour drivers will go off road and park probably way too close to the animals, which is something they don't do in South Africa.
