By Russell Temu – Big Cats of the Serengeti
My name is Russell Thomas Temu, a professional guide based in Tanzania employed with Africa Dream Safaris. This time I had a safari for 10 nights (July 20th to July 30th) with our great guests by the names of Donna and John L. and Faye and Jeff G. We started from the Northern Serengeti around the Mara river on July 20th where the wildebeest migration is currently located. We continued exploring the Central Serengeti (Seronera Valley area) and the Western Serengeti (Western Corridor) before we ended our safari in Tarangire National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater.
I am pleased to share with you the following pictures taken on this safari documenting the predatory behaviors of the three big cats of the Serengeti.
006 – Lioness preying on a Zebra close to Mara river.
011 – A leopard walking across the grass toward the granite rock kopjes.
016 – A male Cheetah (one of the two brothers) preying on a grant gazelle.
005 – A mother Cheetah with her cub around Lamai triangle in the Northern Serengeti.
Thank you very much.
