Following The Path More Taken

What a magical morning in Tarangire, Tanzania, the sun’s rays casting down from between the gray clouds, the grasslands golden glow, a herd of zebra grazing in the fields, then without a warning the herd congregates and takes off down the road.

We arrived at our very first national park while on safari in Tanzania and this is one of the beautiful birds I see as our guide is getting our passes. What a great way to start our lifetime adventure. Tarangire, Tanzania

No wonder elephant tusks have been so sought after for their ivory, they are a thing of beauty...thank goodness there are organizations and governments in coalition to save these magnificent beauties.

Lazy Lion

Lazy Lion

We were beginning to think that lions in trees were a “safari legend:” that was until we experiences numerous siting’s in the Serengeti. I love that the structural integrity that the tree adds to this image.

Feediing Time

Orphaned baby elephants in Kenya are fortunate for the existence of Dr. Daphene Sheldrick’s breakthrough techniques on how to successfully rear and care for new-born and injured baby elephants that are less than two years old as still nursing. As well as The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a non-profit organization, dedicated to raising funds and training dedicated Elephant Keepers to nurture and care for these babies through the years it takes to finally re-establish them “living free amongst their wild peers in Tsavo National Park”, Kenya.
