A Baby Elephant drinks at a waterhole in Tsavo East National Park
This adorable baby elephant in Tsavo East, was accompanying its herd for a refreshing drink of water at one of the recently desilted waterholes. While the adults were quenching their thirst, the little elephant was trying to replicate the adults trunk drinking techniques. After it made a few attempts and realized it still hadn't mastered all the functions of its trunk yet, it decided to lower itself to the ground and take a drink by sipping the traditional way. It was indeed a cute and very special moment to witness.

Beautiful leopardess Kuwinda climbs down from her tree

One of the highlights of our recent Wild Kenya Safaris game drive, was seeing the Gorgeous leopardess Kuwinda climbing down from one of her favorite resting trees in Tsavo East.

The beautiful tree canopy gives her plenty of shade, the elevation an advantageous view point, while the thick branches make for a perfect and comfortable bed for her to comfortably sleep in.

Lion Cub Eating Some Grass

Is that a lion eating grass i see?? Well, its not something that you get to see on each and every safari, however, this behavior is actually more common than you think.
Lions and other predators are known to chew and eat the richly fibrous blades of grass to ease uncomfortable cases of indigestion.

Hyena in Tsavo East
Sound asleep inside the comfortable and spacious tent of Ndololo Camp, i was suddenly awakened, at a very odd hour, by the sound of continuous chatter and laughter. It seemed as though comedy night had come to Tsavo.

The high pitch and uniqueness of this laugh however, clearly ruled out the possibility of it coming from my neighbors in the tent next door. This laugh was from a cheeky hyena! The lovely comedian had for some reason decided to stay close to my tent that night and laugh the night away. It got me wondering if the joke was on me... maybe it was my snoring!

Lioness feeding in Tsavo East

One of the great things about choosing the tsavo east national park as an option to safari in Kenya, is that after so many years of experience in Tsavo, our Wild Kenya Safaris guides have unrivaled local knowledge about the area. We know the ins and outs of this park and have been following the lives of lions, cheetahs and leopards for over ten years now. With that kind of dedication and passion for wildlife, we have a good idea about where our favorite big cats like to hang out.

This lioness had successfully completed a hunt near Satao Camp in Tsavo East and was just about to sit to her hartebeest dinner. Her glittering eyes gave us the impression that she wanted us to stay around and give her company for dinner ... how could anyone refuse such a wonderful offer ? :)

A pod of hippos inside the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania

What a nice way to celebrate International Hippo day as we enjoy watching these wonderful animals surrounded by the Ngorongoro crater walls in Tanzania. 

The little lake pictured here is host to a large pod of swimming hippos. Its location is quite easily accessible as it is adjacent to one of the major picnic sites. Nature lovers, bird watchers and wildlife photographers can easily spend a whole day watching the spectacular view as the hippos interact with each other.

Lioness resting in the golden light of Tsavo East

I feel that the phrase 'painting with light' cannot be better expressed in words. The photograph of this lioness in tsavo east national park, just seems to naturally explain the term itself.

For some us who have acquired wildlife photography skills, this photo was taken at the golden hour which is the moment just before sunset or sunrise. Since the sun is low on the horizon at those times of day, there is a beautiful softness to the light which gives a magical touch to ones photographs. 

During one of our safaris in tsavo east, we found this lioness resting in a patch of grass just after she completed a successful hunt. Positioning ourselves in the right direction, we waited for the sun to begin setting and nature just did the rest. The grass slowly started lighting up golden, presenting a beautiful photo moment befitting this queen of the jungle.

Elephants Swim In Tsavo

Elephants enjoying a refreshing swim at a waterhole in Tsavo East

A recent project involving the desilting of waterholes in Tsavo East has been extremely welcomed by the local wildlife. Most of the regularly visited waterholes slowly became shallower over time as sand, stone and dust made its way into them through soil and wind erosion.
With the support of KWS, a few conservation minded citizens undertook the task of restoring the waterholes for easing the water crisis during the dry periods. After a couple of waterpoints were desilted, deepened and refilled with fresh water using water bowsers, the wildlife quickly responded by visiting  to swim, drink and socialize.

Pictured above a family of adult elephants, seem to rediscover their youth as they swim and play joyfully at the Irima Waterhole.

Christmas in Tsavo East

Elephant in Tsavo East photographed using an IR camera

An elephant appears to be walking on snow covered grasslands on Christmas Eve at the Tsavo East National Park in Kenya.

Using a specially converted infrared camera to capture light which is invisible to human eyes, the snowy effect on the grass and trees in the background, is a result of the reflection of infrared light by plants during photosynthesis.

Some animals which are believed to see in the invisible infrared range, could quite possibly be seeing the world as it is in this photograph.

Photographed using a specialized IR camera in Tsavo East

Photographed using a camera converted to take infrared photos, these two lion cubs are part of the Aruba pride of lions in Tsavo East National Park, which has now grown to over fifteen members.
The cubs here were staring very keenly at their siblings that were playing a little further on, and eventually, they both joined in the fun and games that all lion cubs enjoy very much.
