The Big Five! And Other Animals of the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Tarangire

The Serengeti, located in northern Tanzania, is spans 12,000 square miles and is home to Africa’s largest lion population. It is also the site of the worlds largest mammal migration in the world, during which approximately 260,000 zebra and 1.7 million wildebeest can be seen moving between Tanzania and southwestern Kenya. During our safari in the Serengeti (and the Ngorongoro conservation area and Tanrangire national park) Leslie and I saw everything from wildebeests to cheetah and even checked off our Big Five (leopard, elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino)! We went for a 5 day safari with a company called Peter Tours, a fantastic budget safari run by a man named Peter from Moshi, Tanzania. Here are just a few of the photos we took throughout the trip!
