Kenya Day 2 morning

KEN0025

A gory start to the day. A Martial Eagle had killed and was eating this baby impala. The eagle flew off and had a pretty huge wing span.

KEN0026

A Yellow-throated Sandgrouse.

KEN0027

Give way to the elephant! An adult can easily tip the jeep over. They weigh twice as much.

KEN0028

A couple of buffaloes giving us the stare.

KEN0029

The Grey crowned Crane.

KEN0030

A giraffe strolling along.

KEN0031

An African Fish-Eagle.

KEN0032

Yay, a proper sighting of a rhino. This one is only four years old.

KEN0033

Some elephants being followed by their attending birds.

KEN0034

A solitary Topi.

KEN0035

A couple of warthogs obviously lost a game of Truth or Dare and are advancing on a sleeping lion to see how close they can get!

KEN0036

The sleeping lion. They get more adventurous later in the day.

KEN0037

A pool of hippos.

KEN0038

A close up.

KEN0039

You only see how big they are out of the water.

KEN0040

A lioness.

KEN0042

A giraffe having a feed.

KEN0043

Two common ostriches.

KEN0044

Down in the river a couple of crocodiles.

KEN0045

Look closely here and from right to left there is a hippo, a submerged crocodile and then two cros on the bank.

KEN0046

Half the rocks here are actually hippos!

KEN0047

A couple of giraffes necking.

KEN0048

This may look cute, but this is how they fight for dominance. Very polite. They take turns until one gives up.

KEN0049

A baby elephant struggling to get out of the mud.

A long drive this morning, around four and a half hours. We saw a lot in that time though.
