With so much people coming as a safari tourists, we do not know who entertains who

By the way, which country in Africa is this? At least once in a lifetime, we should visit this!

@Tomtom: Why make these poor souls waking all night? Please continue and post some photos. Dying to see it? Excellent.

I love wildlife. I want more. Please, please continue.

For the lions, it looks like they are in a resort with food wandering around if they feel hungry.
it does look like that at times especially in ngorongoro as the population of the herbivores is quite high but the competition within the carnivores is equally fierce.especially b/w the the lions and the hyenas..

Great photos, if you could just add information about how your travel started with prices, it would be jolly good.
we travelled from manchester and then via heathrow (london) by kenyan airways to nairobi and then on a small plane to arusha in tanzania.ithink i have mentioned the prices before.

yup just a mock charge and then it did the same to our vehicle.

Please google your memory and put a writeup and let us live the experience vicariously.
not too good at writing down i2m afraid so just enjoyy the photos.

Can you also please upload any videos you have from the trip. Oh btw, check out the 'Battle at Kruger' which is an amateur wildlife video.
have seen that video in NG TV as well.we just saw some lionesses stalking a wildebeest in terms of any action..otherwise it was pretty regular stuff..

You seems to have really slept with the animals or in other words, a glorious action filled night with animals

that is how a safari should be, just reading about it is exciting, i can imagine how the real experience would be.

thanks for sharing these details, can you post some details about the travel arranger, contact numbers (if you still have them) etc.
sleeping with the animals ..hmmmm let me see ...luckily none came too near although could hear them nearby..was not allowed to sleep by wifey as she was afraid that my snoring will bring the animals to our tent

Ya, we need narration. Whats happening in the 041.jpg pics? Is that person hanging on something?
on a dandaa i guess
The 020.jpg reminds of the Kaadhala song from Avvai Sanmughi !!

This thread needs rating , definitely. Done!

Those are some amazing pics. A trip to S. Africa for the world cup, combined with a safari like this would have been so awesome, but never executed on that plan. I kick myself every time I see such beautiful pics of all these animals.
Thanks for sharing.

Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing.
I liked the one where there is a long line of "safari" vehicles.

So, the quick brown fox did indeed jump over the lazy dog. A visual treat indeed and trust there is more to come from tomtom too.
