Hope to get more up soon, and hopefully Mark will share some of his eventually as well.
Happy New Year to everyone!

Nice pics.
You were pretty close to those hippos!

Great pictures. You have my admiration taking a picture of a boomslang. I am always found running the other way when I see one! Thus not many of us include pictures of reptiles we seen.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Lisa. I loved the agama lizard, the mineral licking zebras, the lioness running with dust behind her, the cub in the tree, the boomslang looking like a toy snake, the lion under acacia, the leopard standing in the tree, the baby vervet and all the rest. I feel like stealing the acacia and putting it on my desktop.

Great pics, Lisa.

Nyamera, I've got a baobab* on my desktop.



*4" tall.

The photos are wonderful! I loved the colors in the agama doing pushups. It was neat to see the different patterns on the zebras faces in your "Saftey in numbers". Where the lioness fails - her in the center of the shot and the dust and glimpse of the animals in the background strikes me as both poignant & comical. That baby vervet is too cute! And the standoff - they both look like babies? Like Nyamera - I really liked your Lion under the acacia - so calm. Beautiful - thanks for sharing - gets me very excited for my upcoming trip!

Thanks Lisa,
Your pics. are great. The cordon blue is magnificant - seeing such amazing birds makes me want to become a birder - something I've never had much interest in.
That hippo eyeballing you is kinda scary, awesome and never to be replicated.

Unfortunately our hippo photos cannot convey the smell factor -- talk about dangerous -- hundreds of hippos in a thick "poop soup"!

Dave -- Swala Camp rocks. You literally don't have to leave the camp at all to see wildlife. I would have been in heaven just sitting out on the deck all day and watching the comings and goings at the waterhole. The managers are great, the staff is fantastic, the food is incredible. The only downside is that it is a long drive through the park to get there, really only worth the drive if you're staying at least two nights.

Thanks for sharing the photos, Lisa. I have really enjoyed them. That baby vervet is indeed adorable! Also, the first lizard in the second album--is it an agama? I can see why you described it in your report as being different from any others!

No one we asked seemed sure whether that one was an agama or not. Its head was much larger than the other agamas we saw, and its turquoise and orange coloration was different than the pink and blue we saw on other agamas. But one person said it was an agama, so I don't know. When we first saw it, the color was changing, and we thought it might be some kind of a chameleon, but we were told it wasn't. Near Serengeti Serena was the only place we saw it.

The blue/pink bright color is the male Agama. The ordinary blue/green/gray is the gal! For some reason there are more guys sighted than gals... maybe the gals are smart enough to stay out of troubles way. Gals rock!

Lisa, great photos. Thanks.

Thanks Lisa, these were incredible pictures! All were really enjoyable, you and Mark certainly captured the essence of the wildlife - I am going to a few of those place in June and cannot wait to see all those animals!
Is it OK if I refer to this thread for your photos in the East Afica Index - or if OK by you, could the links be added to your original Trip Report thread, that way it's all in one for future readers?

Sorry Lisa, I see you have already added the photo links to your original trip reports! If I would have just scrolled down a little further I would have seen that... Thanks!
