The leopard's camouflage is incredible. No wonder it's the most difficult animal to spot.
Lake Nakuru definately turned out to be the best game experience for us so far on this trip. We saw every big animal that the National Park has to offer including the elusive leopard and black rhino (these two within the first 20 minutes of entering the park).
Nakuru is a soda lake and hosts thousands of flamingos, storks and pelicans. The colour contrasts provided a beautiful setting.
We took 891 pictures between the two of us, so imagine how hard it is to pick a few select ones to put on the website. Especially when we witnessed a leopard hunting and feeding on a pelican, and also drove within a few meters of a pride of lions. We also had a bit of an adventure when our Jeep caught fire. Everyone piled out when we saw the smoke. The driver turned off the engine, looked under the jeep, then shrugged his shoulders and said, "It's okay now. It was just a fire. We go now." Yeah, that left us feeling safe and confident.
We couldn't fit all of our photos onto 1 entry so we split it up into two parts. Enjoy.
