While living in Tanzania for two plus years I had the opportunity to go on several safaris. There is nothing quite like being in the national parks of Africa not many places I would rather be.

Looks like you might have some shots from Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara there. All the shots are very nice but the tree lions are great!

That was an insane battle. The snake started it and grabbed the gecko's tail, then the gecko grabbed the snake by the throat and shed his tail. finally the snake gave up and the lucky gecko ran off. Pretty amazing!

This is for the Serengeti

Best time to go: January-February for the wildebeest calving; June-September for general wildlife viewing with a chance of seeing the wildebeest crossing of the Grumeti River June-July.
High Season: Most of the year - July to March (The Serengeti will be crowded around the Seronera area)
Low Season: April and May
Best Weather: June to October (Little to no rainfall)
Worst Weather: March and April (Peak of wet season)
