From Nathan: Today we went game driving in the morning. My favorite thing? We saw a mother leopard bringing her kill (gazelle) up into a sausage tree to her cubs. According to our driver, Malles, this was a very rare thing to spot. We also saw over 15 lions; some were eating their prey.

This is one of my favorite safari photos.

You really need smell-a-vision for the Hippo Hole!

While big game gets all the attention in the Serengeti, some of the most beautiful creatures are the birds. They’re amazingly colorful!
