Lioness, Serengeti - Tanzania

I had my first safari in 2012. At that time I wasn’t able to trek because of health reasons, so I took the opportunity for a safari in Tanzania. Being clueless about this kind of experiences, I thought I would hardly see any wildlife at all: I was very wrong. With some luck it’s not uncommon to witness a hunt scene, as I did with a leopard in Tanzania. The excitement was so strong that even today I couldn’t tell how long exactly it lasted, it was as the time stopped for those endless moments.

In Tanzania I visited several natural reserves: Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. In 2013 I travelled to Kenya, to Samburu, Aberdare, Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara e Amboseli natural reserves. Here are some of my best shots.
