East African Safari, 2009


This is an album of photos taken during our African safari in 2009.

We visited Tanzania, primarily to spend about a week in the Serengeti National Park, although our total safari included visits to Arusha National Park, Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro National Park and Conservation Area, and Lake Manyara National Park. The parks vary in size, and each has its own unique features, but it must be said that the Serengeti is the "mother of all national parks".

We did manage to see all of the "Big Five" (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino) although we must admit the rhino was at a very long distance and outside the range of our camera lenses.
