Safari Update Day 5 (30 Sept 2013) – Crater to Serengeti Plains
18 degrees C
Sunrise 615, clear skies

Today we moved from the rim of the Crater to the central Serengeti with a stop at Oldupai Gorge for a little lesson about Lucy in the sky. Soon after crossing the Nobi Hill entrance, we started picking up game almost instantly. Lion cubs next to the road and a great sub-adult leopard. Before you knew it, Wildebeests were all around us. Making our way to our camp at Robanda, we were treated to a classic African thunder storm all around us. After a wonderful dinner, its off to bed for an early rise tomorrow as our journey continues.

Nikon D4, 200-400mm f/4.5, @ 400mm, ISO 250, 1/200 sec at f/8.

Cheers and happy photo’ing.  Blogging live from the Serengeti via AT&T
