We set out nice and early looking specifically for the Samburu ‘special five’, and were rewarded with a lion sighting! We did manage to find the animals we were looking for and got some pretty cool photographs of them, most notably the gerenuk standing on its hind legs and feeding (the only antelope known to do this), and a journey of reticulated giraffe that very kindly posed underneath a near full moon for us. There was a lot on offer for us to photograph, and our bird lists rocketed – another great day in Africa!
Major sightings of the day:
2 herds of elephants
1 female lion
5 female lions
