A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words…

Kenya Memories…

Our welcoming committee: wart hogs, white rhinos, zebras, impallas, and gazelles...

The King...

The next generation of "Kings"...

The "Kings" and their kill (a Cape Buffalo)...The males eat first, then the females, and lastly the young...

A female leopard...Pure natural beauty...

Her son: going up the tree to eat his "kill" (a Thompson Gazelle)...

The Infamous Cheetah: Lording over our jeep...

A Masai Giraffe...The great ambler!

A Besa Oryx...A type of antelope.

A Gerenuk: The "Giraffe Gazelle"...

Hyenas...

Common Zebras...The stripes are all unique and help for safety from predators and temperature control.

Elephant ears are like fingerprints: Each one is unique...

A Black Rhino: he runs about 42 miles per hour and can make sharp 180 degree turns...

Cape Buffalo...He reminds me of a Brahma bull!

Sunset on the Mara...

A Young Samburu Warrior...

A pair of sad eyes and a pair of "shell shocked" ones...

A Samburu Elder with his child...

Our Maasai guide and guard when we went on a "Nature Walk"...

The Matriarch, The Patriarch, and their grandchildren...

A proud lion shakes the Savanna

with a roar;

A beautiful leopard is about to

score;

A tasty, young, male gazelle;

As beyond the trees the sunlight

fell.
