September 27th Tarangire National Park

We have now arrived in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania and will be here for the next two days. We left the Ngorongoro crater early this morning and drove approximately 140 KM’s to Tarangire National Park. The last 45 km’s were inside the park to our lodge so we had plenty of photography opportunities as we drove through the park. One of the highlights today was another leopard, which was great as they are such a rare find due to how well the hide high up in the trees.

Tomorrow will be another full day of safari’s one drive early in the morning and again late in the afternoon. Enjoy the selection of images from todays activities.

This baby baboon stopped for a rest


This bird is called an Amethyst sunbird


Typical kid, ask for a photo and they stick out their tongue


This African ground bird was calling for his mate

Another Bau Bau tree at sunset this evening


Then a few minutes later another Bau Bau tree as the full moon started to rise. How fitting since this marks the Chinese Mid Autumn Festival. Break out the Moon Cake.


That’s it for today’s blog. Some of the group plan to get up at 5:00 a.m. to capture the lunar eclipse. Hopefully we will have some results to share tomorrow evening. Good night from all the photographers.
