Visiting Africa

August 15, 2016  •  2 Comments

Visiting Kenya and Tanzania was a dream.  The flights were very long, but being among the animals made it all worthwhile.  We were hoping to witness a "crossing," which occurs when a group of migrating wildebeests jumps off a cliff overlooking  the Mara river and swims across.  Some people wait by the river for days for the wildebeests to  make up their minds,  but we had to be satisfied with a "mini" crossing.   

A Crossing

The Serengeti is full of amazing sights.  Some of the most precious are of the babies.  We watched this baby elephant have a fit when his mother remained in the cool, wet grass and refused to get up to play with him.

Come out and play!

In a large group of baboons we came across, we couldn't be sure which of the females were this baby's mom.  He was going from one to the other, each one giving him lots of affection.

You're a good boy.

"Foreplay"
