Now that we have the warnings out of the way, time to begin our Tarangire Safari.
We spot our first elephant up close.
What a feeling to be so close to such a massive animal.
All along the roads you see these incredible termite mounds.
To me they look like little cities, and I guess to the termites they are!
How cute are Dik Diks? Like little dogs.
I thought a close up picture of the giraffes skin would be cool, and to me it did turn out cool!
Box lunch. At this point the box lunches are still good! (can you feel the forshadowing here?)
We had some extra guests for lunch. I don't think they liked us much as on of them pooped on Maningo!
The views are just breathtaking.
Sausage trees. How cool are they? Reminds me of Spenelli's (an italian market downtown Edmonton) with the pepperoni hanging above the deli counter.
Maningo calls these "McDonalds" because of the M's on their butts.
Next we came up to a Baboon hang out.
Kaleb got into a staring contest with a baboon, I think the baboon won.
This turned out to be one of my favorite pictures.
Just at the end of the day, Maningo spots our first lion. Can you see it under the bush?
And look, she just finished lunch.
On the way to Maramboi Tented Camp, I took a few pictures from the moving jeep.
I loved seeing the school children in uniform walking on the road. To me it seemed like you saw them at all hours of the day. I wonder if they have set times for classes, or is it just when ever they show up?
Maramboi Tented Camp
Wildabeast just ourside our tents.
We promised the kids they could play in the pool when we returned from our safari. Turns out the pool didn't have any water, but a promise is a promise!
