Back from Kenya & Zanzibar

We're back from 3.5 weeks in Africa - Safari, climbing mount Kenya and relaxing at Zanzibar beaches. Was great!
Here's a link to some photos from our trip:

Great. Especially nice to see the pics taken on your Mt. Kenya climb... we don't see many of these. And those sunsets are beautiful. Thanks.

Beautiful! Thanks. Great everything, but I enjoyed the landscapes very much. And nice of that leopard to choose such a barren tree for you.

Thanks for sharing -- excellent photos, especially the serval (I have seen a few servals, but I never got a photo as clear as yours).

Such a nice variety. All good but I especially liked the running gazelles, sitting giraffe, the couple of gerenuk shots, the side view of the cheetah, the seated Maasai, the pair of secretary birds, and your many scenery shots. Congrats on the serval, one of my all time favorites.

Nanale, thanks for sharing your photos. I loved the plant gathering rainfall, the gerenukís belly, the running tommies and of course the serval. The elephant crossing the river doesnít look well at all. Could she be the one thatís in a documentary (donít remember which, but it was with Saba Douglas-Hamilton) walking around on three legs? In that case sheís managed to stay alive for years.

Thanks for sharing your marvelous photos.

I particularly loved the one of the single elephant cross the Uaso Nyiro River in Samburu. Her name is Babyl. She is about 15 years old and was born with a dislocated hip. It was thrilling to see that she is still alive and able to get about. She is from the Biblical family grouped named by Iain Douglas-Hamilton and is usually found with them. However, when they leave the reserve after the rains she stays in the reserve as she can't travel as far.

I haven't seen her for a year, and am thrilled that she is still able to get about.

Thanks Nyamera and JanGoss, I really didn't know about this elephant's story, actually I thought she's just lifting her leg gracefully to cross the river... Great she's surviving!
