Tanzania Safari: Day 3

Another wonderful sunrise in Africa this morning was a simple reminder how special it is to be here, and in the very capable hands of Thomson Safaris. Today we explored the far side of the Mara River in search of new animals and landscapes to photograph. Tanzania did not disappoint today, either – elephants were giving us a constant show and wildebeests were everywhere we looked. We were able to capture some wonderful images, including this fun photo of us standing directly on the Tanzania/Kenya border.

In the afternoon we were treated to a different kind of crossing when a Cessna 208 had to make multiple passes to clear the runway from wildebeests. Our guide estimated that about 15,000 wildebeests crossed right in front of us! They just kept coming and coming and coming.....what a treat. 

We're enjoying our last night in the Northern Serengeti now; we're off to Thomson's Central Serengeti camp in Robanda tomorrow.
