Tanzania Fotos....

Postby svizzerams » Wed Dec 18, 2013 6:52 pm

I spent 3 weeks in Tanzania recently - most of that was spent in various national parks: Tarangire, Ngornogoro Conservation Area, Rubundo Island, and the south, central and northern Serengeti.

Mutants?

Rhino calf in northern Serengeti lacking ears - the parents of this offspring were re-located here from South Africa. Theory is with the pressure of poaching in recent years the gene pool is getting small....

Crossed with a wildebeest???

The lioness fight started like this when in the midst of domestic tranquility the two lionesses alerted on something behind where I was:

Image

Then:

Image

Followed by the two lionesses on the rocks leaping off followed by 4 others that came from god knows where, they chased this guy into the brush and were giving him a proper thrashing apparently when he burst out:

Image

Note the lion tails emerging from the brush....

Image

and the lot of them had a bit of a stand off right behind the Land Cruiser:

Image

But after he slunk off - the lionesses were quite agitated, and perhaps they were re-establishing some manner of hierarchy in the pride. The sound of 7 lions fighting a few feet away from me is not one I will soon forget.
