Africa – Big Cats 2013

We are wrapping up our African Adventure as we are sitting in our hotel awaiting our flight home at 3:45 – in the morning.  Don’t ask.

It was a wonderful trip.  We saw the big five (cape buffalo, lion, rhino, elephant, leopard)

and the usual suspects (Zebra, Giraffe & Cheetah, Wildebeest)

We will let you decide who should be crowned king of the terminate mound (Topi, Mongoose, Baboon, Cheetah)

We liked to watch animal behavior.  They are so interesting. For example, everyone knows cats like to drink water but not get into it.  But once this female went in, the male quickly followed

Of course, his attitude quickly changed when she turned down his courting

We came for the cheetahs and got our fill

And took some interesting pictures (flamingos and god’s beams)

Looking forward to returning home and seeing our new grandchild.
