    Baboon

    This baboon was part of a big group of 20 or 30 animals, but while the rest of them scattered into bushes when we stopped on the road, he and a friend of his climbed to a good vantage point in a tree by the road, and we were not sure anymore if we were watching them or the other way round...

    Masai Giraffe

    It is amazing how these huge animals can hide behind the slimmest of trees. We got a good view of this one here, but sometimes they were really hard to spot if they were a bit away from the road among the trees.

    This is one of the two male lions that we watched for more than 2 hours. After having cruised all over the ranch in our vehicles for more than a week, 8 hours a day, without getting so much as a glimpse of a lion, it was just brilliant to get such a good look at these two guys and see for ourselves that the Tsavo lions really don't have manes.

    Spotted Hyena

    When we smelled something rotten one morning we hoped that we might come across a lion-kill, hopefully with the lions still having breakfast. While we did not see any lions, this hyena obviously had also got a whiff of the smell and was making its way towards the same spot as us.

    Genet

    Genets were quite elusive creatures, but during one morning drive we saw four of them, all on or around termite mounds. One was actually crawling into the "chimney" of a mound with only the long tail dangling out of the hole.

    Elephants at watertank

    There are a couple of water tanks all over the ranch, and they are very popular with the elephants. Does it not somehow remind you of the bar in your local pub?

    Cheetah

    Two of these guys were walking along the road ahead of us, occasionally turning around to see if we were still sneaking up on them.
