My wife, Shelia, and I went on a photo safari to Kenya and Tanzania during August of 1999. Here are some of our images. I'll continue to post more and add information about our trip over time. So, please come back often to see the latest. Most images were captured with a Canon FD400mm f/2.8L.

We hunted for a cheetah for days, until we found this female during our last morning. She posed for us for almost an hour until she got up and headed into the tall grass.



Amboseli


Tanzania

Lake Manayra

Dik-dik

This is the smallest antelope, known as the dik-dik.

 

 

 

 

Leopard

The leopard is very elusive. I was able to get an image of this guy by adding a 1.4X teleextender to my 400mm lens. He disappeared after a few minutes and before we could get closer.



Ngorongoro Crater
Black Rhino

Ostriches

These ostriches are doing their courting dance.




Serengeti

Lions1

We saw lots of lions in four different prides while in the Serengeti.
