Small heard of zebras under a massive acacia tree in Amboseli. Looking towards Mount Kilimanjaro on a hot and dry day in Amboseli National Park and we get this beautiful view of a small heard of zebras in front of a large acacia tree with the foothills of Kilimanjaro behind.
Lenana and Batian reflecting in a small tarn. On this beautiful clear morning the first view of the journey is a perfect picture of Lenana and Batian reflecting in the mirror like surface of a tarn.
Three rhinos in Nakuru park. The small pack looks white-grey against the thick acacia forrest behind them. The Nakuru park is also where you can find the famous flamingo’s if the water level in the lake is not too deep.
Topi Antelope standing with a young one on a small mound on the grass plains.
Vulture in flight on a pristine morning near the Mara river. After a heavy rainfall the river swells and it gets much more difficult for Wildebeest and Zebra to cross, this in terms result in many animals drowning and flowing down stream until the corpuses pile up where the river bends. This is where you will find hundreds of Vultures and Marabu storks.
View over the grass plains with a couple of giraffes looking for fresh sprouts on the acacia trees. Early morning and the sun is slowly warming the savanna with much needed warmth after a cold night.
Hyena covered in fresh blood trotting home. On this very early morning we met a hyena family coming home after they had been out the whole night. One after one they passed our car covered in blod on their necks and heads. They must have brought down a big animal as all of them had blod stains all over their bodies.
Portrait of a hyena with a beautiful backlight giving a shine around the head and the ears. The image was shot on an early morning with warm yellow sunlight.
Vulture in black and white. When you take a closer look at the vulture there is few things that strikes you, one is the powerfull claws and the sharp beak for ripping flesh and picking meat of the bones of dead animals. The garbage man of the savanna.
Looks like this lion had a hard night out on the savanna. He look a bit tired and yawns a few times before falling into a slumber.
Small group of young zebras in flat-out gallop trough the water. Have just crossed the river and the adrenaline is probably making the zebras more nervous and they start galloping along the waterline.
Climbing up the Chogoria rute on a crystal clear morning. You can see nearly the whole Mount Kenya in all its glory this bright morning. The rivers, lakes, the deep ravines and the snow clad tops are all visible against a blue sky.
There is nothing like the smile of a lazy crocodile basking in the sun on a convenient outcrop in the river. These massive crocodiles spend most of the time half asleep but don’t be fooled the moment they see a zebra in the river they will spring into action faster than a rattlesnake.
Large herd of Wildebeests looking quite nervous, slightly running and moving all the time. They might have encountered a some lions earlier or another danger that have made them fearful.
Tsavo lion with the unique mane that characterise the lions that live in this rugged terrain. Although I have been on safari in Tsavo many times it is not that many times I have encountered lions in this park. In the old days of railroad building these particular lions had a fierce reputation for being man eaters.
Coming down from the Lenana peak and walking in the Gorges valley towards lake Michaelson. Beautiful morning with clear skies and warm sunlight after a cold night on the mountain.
