On the Serengheti . . .

Africa surprised me with its open spaces. Once we were on the Serengheti Plains, animals wandered about their lives, seemingly unaware of the rumbling, open-air tourist jeeps that parked nearby.

A lioness makes her way down a rocky hill on her way to find breakfast.while a herd of antelope grazes nervously thirty feet away.

Two giraffes amble on hilly ground, munching on the tops of thorny trees.

Herds of wildebeest cross in front of our jeeps by the thousands on their annual migration.

Early one morning, we surprised a mother lioness and her babes at a watering hole.

 And at the end of the day, the African landscape shimmers at sunset. Beautiful memories!

The plains of East Africa are fantastic, aren't they? For me, no place in the world is as beautiful.

Hello, Chris. I'm not sure I could pick just one place that I would call home on this amazing planet. Scotland, Turkey, and Brazil all were so wondrous. Maybe one day we'll go back to those places of our heart! Thanks for visiting and commenting!
