Posing for the camera

Lots of warthogs running around.

We were very lucky to see one of the few black rhinos resident in the Mara.


My dad rode an ostrich at a rodeo when he was a kid in North Dakota.

Crowned cranes. Our driver/guide told us that the Masai dance (the jumping, the chin jut, etc.) is patterned after the crane's mating dance. We saw it in action, and I have to say they are quite similar.

A 'smiling' baby hippo sticks his head out from the pond.

Pretty bird with buffalo grazing in the background.
