Kenya, Africa - Cats
Had a great first trip to Kenya. One of the most productive trips ever. Exciting, so much new dynamic wildlife species to observe and photograph. Here is a few of the cats.
Our safari guide had a good idea where this leopard could be located. Viewing this cat so close was special. The male pictured was later joined by a female. We were also able to watch some leopard pre-mating behavior.
We were able to watch this pride of lions on several occasions. There were 11 cubs in the group. The male image below is the dominant of three within the pride.
The Cheetahs were my favorite cat to watch. We saw 11 different cheetahs and saw several on a hunt. Often they were so close to our Landcruiser you could hear them purr.
More species to follow in the next few days.
