EAST AFRICAN SAFARIS

(PART ONE - 'BIG CATS')

As the title suggests, this is the first of two albums covering some of the wildlife that I’ve seen and photographed during various

safaris in East Africa. This particular set features the ‘big cats’ - primarily lions, leopards and cheetahs, but with a couple of photos

of serval to finish off. Whilst many seasoned safari photographers concentrate virtually all their time on the cats, I like to think that I

give all the other animals equal coverage, which is why I didn’t want to continue with just one safari album as it probably would have been dominated by just a few species. Separating the cats gives me more space and more scope in keeping this selection of images

updated and current. The associated comments appended to each photo are generally pretty brief as all the details about the

species, including information about their classification, are provided under an article in the ’species’ section of the website entitled

“East African Safari Animals - Carnivores” which, if required, can be accessed directly from the link to open in another browser

window so that the information can be referenced when viewing the photos.

The following thumbnails expand when clicked. You can then scroll through the images in either the 'standard view', or an alternative 'compact view' (via the info button) if you wish to see where the photo was taken and read about the encounter and/or the species.

Whilst my albums are optimised for viewing on a desktop monitor or larger laptop, there is an optional 'full screen' mode for tablets or notebooks. But, please note that if you do use this mode on a smaller device, the top and/or bottom of some photos may

be clipped, and if you leave your curser over the image the navigation overlay backgrounds may be visible.
