Travel: Safari at Serengeti


In just 1.5 days we saw Leon, Zebra, Elephant, Hyena, Monkey, Hippopotami, Crocodile, Giraffe, Antelope, Leopard, Wild Beast, Buffalo, etc. Either we were lucky or our guide Luis is really good. On the first day we saw Leons hunting a zebra LIVE and Monkey getting a baby antelope. The second day, we had a leon walking by our truck! I was sooooo scared! The leon was just a meter away from me!!! 😯

a dead hippo and a crocodile approaching to see if it’s ready to eat. Hippo and crocodile live in the same place. They can live peacefully because when hippo is alive, crocodile can’t eat it because its skin is too hard. When hippo dies, after soaking in water for 1-2 days, its skin becomes softer, i.e., eatable for crocodile.

Hyena, the most ugly animal we saw. They only eat dead animals.

We were 11 for the safari but not all of them went for Kili. They surely regret now πŸ˜‰

  1. All the animals are beautiful! I really like giraffes. I don’t think I would want to see an animal get attacked, though. I know it’s part of life, but that would make me SO sad! I can’t believe the lion’s came so close! They must’ve been curious…. πŸ˜‰

  2. wow wow wow! what a rare opportunity to see animals in a natural habit! absolutely breathtaking. i’m sure this will be an experience you will never forget! i love the photos of the zebras!
