TANZANIA ALBUM

 

 

Here are a few photos from Mervyn Griffin who was on our 2015 Tanzania trip:-

 

We found our own big cats

This African Scops Owl was roosting in the lodge grounds

Black-faced Sandgrouse... These were unusually tame

Cape Teal were common on alkaline lakes

Several Common Genets regularly appeared in the rafters at the restaurant, Ndutu Lodge

Double-banded Coursers were surprisingly common

Grey Crowned Cranes were a garden bird at our first lodge

We were lucky to see this Honey Badger spotted by Mervyn

Tree climbing Lions are quite common in Tanzania

We were lucky to find these two handsome male Lions whilst birdwatching in Ndutu

We lost track of the number of close encounters with Lions

Masai Giraffes have distinctive markings

Olive Baboons were plentiful

Red-and-Yellow Barbets were very confiding and hung around some of our picnic tables

This is a female Saddle-billed Stork with distinctive yellow eyes

We had great views of Spotted Thick-Knees

Verreaux's Eagle-Owl showing its pink eyelids

White-Browed Coucals were plentiful
