The next day we were back to Tarangire for a full day’s game drive. As we were staying fairly close it was fairly quiet when we arrived at the park. The park is divided by the Tarangire river. The only crossing at present is a weir, although a new bridge is currently under construction. Yesterday the river was too high to cross and with overnight rain it remained so today, leaving us confined to the west of the park. A shame, but it still left most of the park to explore. And early on we were lucky enough to spot lions. Better yet, we were the first vehicle to spot them. It’s standard on Tanzanian safaris that all the guides share information of what they have spotted, either by stopping for a quick chat, or more commonly on the radio. This of course benefits everyone as it increases the likelihood you will see the big game. The downside of course is that there is often a crowd of vehicles around the popular animals, like the big cats. So being first gives extra quiet time with them. With lions this is not usually such a big deal, as in many respects they are just very big domestic cats, and are often found asleep. All day long. But this pride, although initially some distance away, decided to pay us a visit and ambled on over to our vehicle. One dared us to scratch the belly:

Brilliant photos 🦁📸🍾🥂
 
Thanks! Still working through them all for a photobook. So many photos...
My +1 took I reckon 10K photos (possibly a slight exaggeration) on our Rwanda / Tanzania safaris last October...9 months later she still hasn't sorted, edited them etc...I guess one day they will make a good coffee table book.

As a side note we are going to Namibia, Botswana and Vic Falls next month so there will be even more unsorted photos. :(

But a great trip awaits! I hope you'll do a trip report.
