Colobus monkeys are very gentle and friendly monkeys. Comparing them to Sykes, you have the Sykes that are extremely opportunistic and the Colobus that can live peacefully without stealing or marauding. The Colobus monkeys are herbivorous, eating leaves, fruit, flowers, and twigs and normally lives in large families. The Colobus monkey has a beautiful long haired black and white coat, although newborn Colobuses are completely white. The images here is from Diani beach in Kenya where there is a number of families living in the coastal area next to the beach.
The Gerenik is a elegant and beautiful gazelle that is found in dry and thorny bush and semi desert. Gerenuks have a relatively small head for their body, and their eyes and ears makes them looks like they are proportionally too large. By standing erect on their rear legs and stretching their elongated necks they can reach higher branches and twigs than other gazelles. Gerenuks are often prey for lions, cheetahs, jackals and leopards. The images here is from Samburu National Reserve that is located on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro river in Kenya. The Samburu National Reserve was one of the areas in which conservationists George Adamson and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness.
A huge herd of elephants wandering across the savanna plain at the Aboseli National park in Kenya. A impressive sight with the white Cattle Egret following the elephants to catch insects and small animals being disturbed by the heavy foot steps of the herd. This afternoon we had the whole scenery for ourself, a spectacular afternoon on the savanna. The vague shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro can be seen in the background.
