My 4-day safari was for sure the most impressive part of my trip ... although the most touristy.
It was the first time I went on safari! 

I felt like being right in the middle of a wildlife docu ... it's so incredible that huge animals such as elephants, giraffes, hippos, lions, cheetahs, hyenas, zebras, buffalos, ostrichs, leopards, rhinos and others are happily walking through the landscape ... no fence, no gate. It's something that doesn't exist anywhere except the green parts of Africa!

click on the pics to enlarge them...
View into the Ngorongoro Crater ... lotsa animals enjoy being near the big lake, especially during dry season!


view into SERENGETI, the great great plains of Africa ... endless land

wildebeest - wildlife migration all year round within the great plains of Serengeti between Tanzania and Kenya

 our campsite ... in the middle of nowhere ... free for lions and buffalos and others to reach
*I'm loving it*

 sunrise in Serengeti

game-viewing in the early morning hours is best ... animals are very active!

on the last day, we visit Lake Manyara National Park with lotsa baboons, flamingos and birds

 elephants eat around 20kg of foliage each day ... they have two stomachs to digest everything - and sleep only 4 hours!
