The 2014 Wild Images tour to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area in northern Tanzania was a fantastic experience. Not only did we have amazing wildlife encounters and photographic opportunities, often in wonderful light, but also excellent opportunities for landscape photography. The wildlife highlights of this tour are really too numerous to summarize, but special mention must be made of the astonishing vast herds of migrating Wildebeest, Zebra and antelopes, frequent close and prolonged encounters with African Lions, nine wonderful Cheetahs, including a female with five young cubs and an adolescent male that decided to use the bonnet of our safari vehicle as a vantage point (!), lounging Leopards at zero range, large herds of African Elephants, close views of Black Rhinoceroses (including no fewer than ten together in the Ngorongoro Crater), herds of Hippopotamuses, flamingos and vultures feeding at very close quarters, displaying Kori Bustards, fantastic dancing Grey Crowned-cranes and excellent close views of many other birds, including canoodling lovebirds, a variety of kingfishers, bee-eaters, rollers and hornbills, iridescent starlings and sunbirds, various waxbills, wheatears, weavers and whydahs, flocks of sandgrouse and striking plovers, and ever-present raptors of very many kinds. These highlights, together with the first class accommodations and cuisine, excellent local driver/guide, the friendliness of the local people and the camaraderie of the group certainly combined to make this tour live up to its billing as Africa’s Ultimate Wildlife Safari.
