giraffes galloping with curved necks

To the Serengeti Camp

We drove all day from the Alamana Camp to the Serengeti Camp. In the morning we saw two kinds of antelope: a Coke’s hartebeest and a male impala.

A group of giraffes were walking, and then they galloped past our parked trucks. These 3 photos were taken with a zoom lens at 135 mm, a short telephoto length. See the dust being kicked up in the third picture.

As we neared camp, a herd of elephants walked by.  Note that the baby is much smaller than the adult elephants.

Close to sunset, we drove past an alkaline lake with various birds.
