Tantalizing Tanzania

Leopard Tantalizing Tanzania

The Northern Serengeti is dominated by woodland, and during the heaving rains it seems virtually empty. Rain is heavy and you can hear and feel the storm clouds overhead stimulating the migration to the North.

The landscape is a lush green and animals appear, disappear, and reappear within a moments notice. In an instant a leopard jumps onto a low tree branch and settles. Staring into the thicket below watching intently as her mate approaches.

The long rains create dramatic landscapes. Even a less photogenic Marabou stork can look graceful against the intense East African sky.

The crown jewel of Tanzania… Mount Kilimanjaro. Set high in cloud cover she shows herself only briefly, still covered in snow.

The magic of Tanzania is safari. Breathtaking landscapes cover the country. Here is a special sundowner, at Klein’s Camp, Serengeti.

  1. What an incredible place, superb photographs. I’m looking forward to exploring that fascinating continent!

  2. Tanzania is a place that many people – not only travelers, want to discover. Because of my knee problem, I know I’ll never be able to climb Kilimanjaro, not even a little. But I do hope I’ll see it, even from the base, and maybe even enjoy a safari in Tanzania one day. Beautiful photos too!

  3. Great Pics Paul, I’m just finishing up my day to day account of Tanzania / Kilimanjaro, just the safari / Masai mara day to go. So want to go back!
