Bush Plane Into the Serengeti
I was a little jittery, but it ended up smoother than I expected, and the pilot seemed very comfortable and flew the plane manually. My father-in-law told me after that we hadn’t been able to make the first landing the pilot attempted, so he had swooped up and come in from a different angle, but I honestly didn’t notice.
And then, 30 minutes later (after stopping to pick up a few more guests from Central Serengeti!),
In the North Serengeti, the Lobo Valley is a verdant, cool landscape, where the wildebeests and zebras feed and mate, before heading south in the Great Migration to give birth. Tucked between the mountains, the herds stretched farther than we could see. The scale was truly spectacular, although most of these photos only profile a few animals. Imagine that exponentially multiplied over dozens of miles.
The valley itself was like a tunnel of wildlife, and so much more beautiful than I’d imagined (I think I was expecting a desert)
you know these ones,
There were also a lot of large topi
And this one because so much of our drive, wildebeests were loping out of the way of the car.
After a few hours, we headed back to our next hotel to refresh for another early morning in the Valley.
