TSAVO WEST 2001, Not your ordinary trip report.

Hi out there, thought I try this an post a story of mine. Hope you don't mind. I can always delete it. Pictures are needed. Wish we could do that here. This was from my first KENYA safari in SEPT/OCT 2001.
Hope you like it.
Cheers, David

"BIG-BIG PLACE!"

Fly like and EAGLE, WILD OPEN
WILDERNESS. The look of ROARING-ROCK from the bottom.
The bonus, ELEPHANTS!!
But that is not why we came down.
Soon we will know. The other
MINNI-BUS that left, should have stayed! LUCKY for us!!

"JUST LIKE A MALE"
"WE FOUND THE TREATS"

LIONS HUNTING!! We waited near by. We did not see at first his LADIES! But they are here! Doing all
the work. But, you know that!! This
LION is watching to see whats up!
What will be his next move?

TRIPLE-DOSE!!
THREE TIMES A LADY!!

THREE, LIONESSES hunting ZEBRA across the road. We waited
for almost and hour. In the hot sun to see what will happen. We are the only ones here. It was not easy to
get this shot in between the sticks!!
Did the best I could! Hope you like it.

MOVING ON UP!
"I KNOW I'M MISSING SOMETHING!"

I guess the LION was thinking something was about to happen.
He did not want to miss anything.
But as it turns out. The ZEBRAS
spotted the LIONS. They ran up a bank, and just looked back at the
LIONS. No chance now for a meal!

"IF LOOKS COULD KILL!"
THE MAIN QUEEN!

After the miss, we had to back up and try and get some pics!! You can
tell she is really upset!! My driver,
JOHN on this safari a bit nervous
with LIONS. We had already pulled
the canvas down to cover the window area on the truck.But, we still had the top open.
See how she blends in!

"I WANT YOU!"
"THE LUNGE"

She made a half hearted lunge.
But it was enough for JAMES to pull me down. After a min. Time to get
a few more shots! She was smacking her tail!! Not a good sign!

"I ONLY NEED ABOUT 30 FEET"
"TAIL SMACKING"

OH, YEAH!! She is going good now.
The others are lying low next to her!
My driver just looking and guessing
what she will do! Will she try to run and jump? Or just stay really mad!!
The guides in KENYA are not allowed to carry weapons!!!!!

"THINKING ABOUT IT!"
WILL SHE, OR WON'T SHE?

See the other LIONESS on the right?
She picked up her head a bit. I made
the mistake of not taking more pics here. I learned from it though.
But, JAMES pulled me down and
JOHN, drove off! Why, she lunged
hard . I didn't see it. This is my last shot of all this! We stopped and had
to have a TUSKER-BEER and calm down! WHAT EXCITEMENT!!!!!
