We start in the early morning again. First we do not meet a lot of animals but we enjoy the landscape and take photos of many flowers along the road. At a picknick place we are finally allowed to leave the car, the first time in the Serengeti.
A couple of minutes later we realize the danger of this place again. We drive through the same landscape, grass, no animals to be seen. Suddenly a pair of lion ears appears through the grass, then a young lion, we still see nothing else. Then only ten meters from us, a female lion and her baby stand up, then another one and another one. It must have been around five females with fifteen baby lions, they were all hidden in the grass and then passed our jeep on the way to the shadows of a rock.
We spend almost an hour watching the lion family. Then we continued and saw hippos, buffalos, zebras and many other animals.
For lunch we returned to the hotel.
In the afternoon our last regular game drive in Serengeti.
And finally we see lion with pray. The gnu can’t be dead for a long time but the first hunger is satisfied so we can’t watch the lions eat.
