We had been up since 4.30 in the morning to make it to the balloon ride on time and it was now around 11 AM but no-one was tired. We just wanted to keep out as long as we could.
Once again we were able to find the lions- and spent quite a while watching the babies nurse and play.
Finally the lions all settled down and we headed back to the lodge. I was wondering if the vans disturbed the mother at all- apparently the lions are not bothered by the vans. Going off the road to get closer views of the animals is strictly forbidden and mostly obeyed. If you are caught off the road by the rangers there could be heavy fines.
Buffalo's senses are quite poor. Their sight and hearing are both rather poor but scent is well-developed in buffalo. Outside of the national parks in East Kenya, they are known to break fences, raid cultivated crops and they may even spread bovine diseases to livestock.
I found this buffalo very photogenic.
We stopped to watch and photograph more giraffes.
These are my favourite Giraffe pictures.
As always, I was happy to find more elephants. I could never get tired of watching them.
For a few minutes in the late afternoon the sun gave some wonderful lighting. After seeing the elephants we returned to the lodge to take some sunset photos.
An end to another perfect day.
