By Simon Sige – Huge Python In The Serengeti
Greetings…my name is Simon Sige and I am a driver-guide with ADS. I have just finished up my latest safari to the Northern Tanzania Game Circuit and am now back home in Arusha. Follows is my latest safari report for my trip with Don and Sue from Wisconsin, USA. The safari dates were December 2nd, 2013 to December 10th, 2013 and the itinerary featured 6 nights in the Serengeti and 2 nights at Ngorongoro Crater at the following lodges: Four Seasons Lodge, Lake Masek Camp, Kusini Camp, Lion’s Paw Camp and the Ngorongoro Manor Lodge.
My safari with Don and Sue was simply awesome. We experienced all kinds of weather from rain and strong winds to dry conditions including dust and sunshine. The excursions with the clients were wonderful, the wildlife viewing superb and we also had a great experience in all lodges including Lion’s Paw Camp in the Ngorongoro Crater. The following are some of the photos I took during the safari.
- Wow! This was a huge Python we found crossing the road in the Kusini Plains, which is a very unusual sighting.
- Mother Cheetah teaching her cubs to hunt in the South Serengeti. This is young dik-dik, the smallest antelope in the Serengeti.
- Male lion dragging its kill in the Ndutu area of the South Serengeti.
