Single hippo in a small pool of water making aggressive gestures to show its might. Hippos are by nature quite agressive and you have to be careful if crossing their path on a lake or a waterway.
Masai Mara conservancy Kenya
Dense bush-land and open savannah that are host to many spices of animals and birds
Next to our campsite in the Masai Mara one of the trees this morning was plastered with Flychatchers on all the upper branches. Very noisy congregation
Early morning and a handful of lions were still out looking for prey. Portrait of one leading this small contingent
Looking back at the platue where Lake Michaelson is placed, in the background the peaks are visible and the waterfall behind Lake Michaelson can also be gleamed on the escarpment.
Driving up to the moorlands in the Aberdares park you get a chance to see some of the fantastic waterfalls that the park has to offer. Chania Falls is one of them.
Flying back from Ukunda airstrip at the coast and we suddenly have a clear view of Kilimanjaro to the left. The ice fields are clearly visible and reminds me of the climbing experience on the mountain itself.
On a very pretty and bright morning we are peeking through the cliff opening revealing the beautiful Lake Michaelson. Mount Kenya is a magical place to climb and trek.
The sun slowly setting over the horizon and we have just spotted a leopard roaming around the scrubs and bushes near one of the rivers in the Masai Mara game reserve.
When you drive into Hells Gate there is some spectacular rock formations along the dirt road passing through the park. If you climb the elevated hills you get a great view of Mt Longonot and the rock formations surrounding the park.
Two young cheetahs are out hunting in the morning hours in the Masai Mara. From the distance they blend perfectly into the tall grass on the plains looking for possible game to hunt.
In the blue hour just before the sun disappeared behind the horizon, a small leopard baby was sitting on the other side of the river, calling for its mother on the opposite riverbank. Finally, it gained courage and swam across to reach its mother, another beautiful snapshot from the great grass plains of East Africa.
Large herds of Wildebeests is sometimes made up of thousands of individual animals dotting whole grass plains as far a the eye can see. Misty morning in the Mara triangle
Sometimes the weather can be quite violent over the Mara triangle with heavy rain and hail storms. The animals will stand in groups facing away from the wind. Here I used a fish eye lens to capture such a storm.
A lonely acacia tree on the savanna and a storm brewing in the distance
A elephant herd in the tall grass of the Masai Mara savanna moving slowly toward us. Most of the time elephant herds will be moving sideways or away from you but today we are lucky and they’re coming right toward us.
