One of the goals of the photo safari was to catch up with the migrating wildebeest, as they made their way back north towards Kenya, where will be seeing them later this year. Our move across to the Serengeti was kicked off by tens of thousands of wildebeest all around the airstrip! It was truly wonderful to see so many animals dotted around the vast plains. We spent quite a bit of time watching all the wildebeest and taking as many images as we could, before slowly moving on to the lodge. We had the chance to photograph several herds of elephants on the way up, as well as a couple of old male buffalos. During the afternoon safari, a massive storm was rolling in, which gave us some wonderful skies and didn’t dampen the game viewing; black-backed jackals, masaai giraffe, and a pair of very co-operative verreaux’s eagle owls found their way in front of our cameras. After a great safari, we were treated to some delicious food in a very beautiful setting.
