Serengeti National Park, January 9, 2016

Well, I made the night!  There was a hyena trying to get into the garbage can and howling but that was about all of the excitement.

Sunrise at the campsight -


The Serengeti-


Our first sighting of the day..... A pride of lions-




I could watch them for hours!  If they aren't hungry, they do nothing but laze around.

Marabou storks, one of the "big five ugly" list with vultures, hyenas, wildebeest and warthogs-


A Marabou up close-


I told you they were ugly!

Lions in a tree-




Too cute!

Not more baboons!  At least these didn't hop in our jeep while we weren't looking and steal a bag of bananas!  They are faster than lightning-


And more giraffes!


I thought I better get a photo with my favorite -


Elephants-


This time it was a leopard n the tree-


The Long Tailed Starling-


More lions-




A Crowned Bustard-


The first time I've seen a topi.  They have very different coloring-


Weaver nests: their song is loud and beautiful.  Some are bright yellow like our finches-


We have spent 3 wonderful, unbelievable days amongst some beautiful creatures.  This trip has been absolutely amazing!
