We are half way through our African adventure. It started with an one day layover in Istanbul where we toured the old part of the city and visited many of their craftsmen:
Then on to Nairobi were we met our adopted elephant orphan Sonja
(we were more excited than her handler).
Our next stop was Tanzania for a week in the Serengeti. While the migration hadn’t started, their was plenty of wildlife for us to photograph.
We saw the king of the jungle
and the king of the termite hill
We photographed many active animals and birds
and even some sleeping and eating ones
Our accommodations were good:
No, they were really were good
