I traveled to the northern areas of Tanzania from 11/17-12/7/2013. This was my second trip to Africa and I'm pretty sure it won't be my last.....

Great set of pics. Thanks for sharing them with us. I really like the bat eared fox and the male lion looking dreamily at you.

Couldn't you have cropped the lion cub quite a bit more?

Thanks for looking - it is hard not to like the big cats - I got really lucky with the leopard - she actually went under the vehicle and went to sleep. Beautiful animal.

Here are a few more of the lion cubs:

These are pretty amazing. My favorites are the leopard lying down and the baby lion in the tree. Great series!


FYI: "Fitness Freak" is also known as "Amber" outside of POTN.

Thank you - I was really fortunate to be able to spend time with these big cats. The leopard actually came under the vehicle I was in and went to sleep!!!! Apparently Land Cruisers are sources of superior shade.
