African Safari!

Hi everyone, after a month off I'm back from my African adventures! 
I had an amazing trip, Africa is definitely a land that provides many contrasts & puts a lot into perspective in life. I thought i would share some of my photos across a few posts. Before the climb of Kilimanjaro, a few of us did a 3 day safari through the Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park & Ngorongoro Crater {all in northern Tanzania}. We saw almost every animal you would expect to see except for a leopard & a cheetah. It was quite hard to get your head around the fact that the animals were actually in the wild! We were also really lucky to see lion cubs - they are usually born around november so it was rare to see them at this time of year. They were extremely cute & were actually making meowing noises! We stayed in different lodges every night but by far our favourite was the Maramboi tented camp {which is in the images below}. It was exactly what i imagined a safari lodge to be like - so much atmosphere... Id stay there again in a flash! The animals weren't bothered by the trucks at all & when we came across an animal we would slow down or stop & turn the engine off & just let them do their thing - we had lions & elephants literally 30cm away from us! 
I have tried to narrow down my 100's of animal photos to give you  same of what it was like :)
