Here he comes ...

just walking on the street, singing:

Doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo


Just back from a fabulous big cat Safari to Ngorongoro, Ndutu and Serengeti in search of the great migration.


If anyone has ever been to the Serengeti, especially the busy Seronera area, he will know how lucky you are, when you have a sighting like this without any other vehicle around.

Now, what can I say, we´ve been that lucky.

While other visitors where watching a bushbuck staring in one direction (a sign that there is a predator around), our guide said, that he heard a strange call of a guinea fowl.

So he said, let´s go there, they usually only call that way, when there is danger around.

What can I say, we drove 1 km and there he came.

Just for us. Saimon, our guide, was yelling and screaming from one ear to the other.

What a sighting!

Just to tell: in the morning we saw a leopard moving in the gras while exactly 50 cars were watching the cat (believe me, I counted!).
