    Serengeti

    July 2 in Tanzania

    Abfahrt war heute morgen gegen 08:00. Wir sind über den Ngorongoro-Krater in die Serengeti gefahren. Die Fahrt über den Krater war atemberaubend schön, sattes Grün - wie im Regenwald.

    Die Fahrt bis zum Haupttor dauerte 3 Stunden. Die letzten zwei waren Ruckel-Schotterpiste.

    Nachdem gestern das Trittbrett des Jeeps abgefallen war, ist gerade der Hinterreifen geplatzt. Wir stehen mitten in der Wildnis zum Reifenwechsel. Um uns herum grasen friedlich Gazellen und Zebras.

    Unvorstellbare Weiten - unglaublich.

    Was gibt es über die Serengeti zu erzählen? Einiges. Sicherlich kennt jeder Prof. Bernhard Grzimek. Nicht zuletzt ist es ihm mit zu verdanken, dass die Tiere hier in Freiheit leben können.

    Gerne hätten wir die große Gnuwanderung (Migration) miterlebt. Leider befindet sich der Tierzug derzeit in Kenia. 1,5 Mio. Gnus, 300.000 Thomson-Gazellen und 200.00 Zebras sind unterwegs. Sie versammeln sich Anfang des Jahres in den Serengeti Plains und ziehen dann im Uhrzeigersinn durch die Serengeti - einschließlich der Massai Mara in Kenia.

    Übernachtet haben wir im Thorn Tree Camp, mitten in der Willdnis. Etwas unheimlich die nächtlichen Geräusche.

    Serengeti National Park Gate

    June 27, 2017 in Tanzania

    Marlene, Jayleen and I walked to the top of the lookout to see the plains and as we walked back down we spotted Adam and Jenna with the others at the bottom. I ran down and gave them the biggest hug, they had only just left our tour group to begin the next leg of their trip but I already missed them.

    Shortly after Ginneen walked past who had also only just left our tour, it had been less that forty-eight hours and we had already managed a 'reunion' we were only missing Chris and Carrie who had decided not to come to Serengeti.Read more

    Serengeti National Park

    June 28, 2017 in Tanzania

    We started early today because there is more opportunities to see animals such as lions and leopards early in the morning because that is when they come out to hunt.

    The first animal we saw was a male lion casually walking around on the roads past the vehicles. The vehicles followed the lion where he approached a lioness, that lioness' lion came out from the bushes and we watched as the two males began fighting over the lioness. The driver told us that the two lions were brothers and that is why once they finished fighting the lion trying to cut his brothers lunch was still allowed to hang around, he began eating something and we couldn't quite tell what it was so I zoomed in on my camera. I could clearly see that it was an elephant that the lion was eating.

    We continued to drive around, we spotted a large group of elephants in the distance so we went to take photographs and somehow someone has spotted a leopard in the tree behind us! The only this that gave it away was the impala that it had killed and dragged up the tree.
