Photo by @kengeiger | Two heads are better than one, especially if one is a snack being saved for later. This silver- backed jackal could not consume the entire month-old Thomson's gazelle. So it took several pieces and buried them for later use, including the gazelle's head. Unfortunately for the jackal, a tawny eagle spotted the jackal's cache and flew off with the head. See that image at @kengeiger, and more from the #maasaimara and #naboishoconservancy. #kenya #jackal

This is what confidence looks like😼 • We encountered a large group of Lions near the Mara river. This individual never took his eye away from me and that resulted in a great opportunity for some close up shots. This young male Lion was part of a group of 9 laying in the shade to find cover from the burning sun. Even when a group of Wildebeest passed by they didn’t move a muscle. Great sighting again in the Mara 🦁 • #lion #lioness #lionking #queen #rain #savethelions #maasaimara #masaimara #nature #bigcat #conservation #kenyanwildlife #nationalgeographic #killer #predator #kenya #leeuw #bigcatconservation #power #motivation #confidence #africageophoto

Photo by @kengeiger | One of the most extraordinary events I've ever witnessed is the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. If you are planning a safari, look to the months of August and September, as the wildebeest will be moving North to the Maasai Mara, Kenya. But before they can migrate North, they have to cross the Mara river, where they can stack up in the thousands, waiting for one brave wildebeest to make the plunge.

In an absolutely nail-biting sighting, the elusive Shepherd's Tree Male leopard was caught stalking and trying to take down a warthog in the thick grass of the Mara, yesterday afternoon. Luckily for the warthog, the leopard narrowly missed out on a #ValentinesDay dinner! Leopard sightings are incredibly rare in the Mara, so seeing one on the hunt was nothing short of spectacular! We could get used to this... Didn't catch this LIVE? Don't miss out again and join us as we go on a LIVE safari from two locations in Africa twice daily.  Watch through the link in the bio! • • • • • #safarilive  #wildearth  #mara  #maasaimara  #maasai  #travelafrica  #travel  #travelkenya  #eastafrica  #natgeowild  #nationalgeographic  #wildlife  #wildlifephotography  #africa #animals #wild #natgeo #natgeowild #animalsofinstagram #naturephotography #thisisafrica #loveafrica #leopard #bigcat #friday

Last year on this day we were on the foot of the Oloololo escarpment installing lights. This family had lost over 30 sheep, several cows and calves to lions and leopard. All that ended the day our Light for Life showed up. 💖🦁 #thisisafrica #africa #kenya #maasaimaranationalreserve #maasaimara #letlionslive #savelions #savebigcats #saveleopards #lightforlife #nature #naturephotography #predatordeterrentlighting

I wanted to do a safari so I hitchhiked to the front gate of the national park. The guards were surprised since no one ever does that. They told me i needed a car to go in. Soooo.. i rented one from one of the guards. A beautiful old toyota corolla with dusty seats, perfectly built for the bumpy roads. I tried to drive it but i never driven manual before. The guard started shouting in Swahili thinking i was going to break his car. So he volunteered to drive me around 😁😉 Thank god! It broke down twice and it wasn't my responsability.. A bit of binding wire and bungie cords to keep the trunk from falling off is all it took to get us through the journey 👍 . . . . . . . #maasai #maasaimara #safari #park #lion #elephant #buffalo #traveling #travel #travelphotography #wildlife #wild #backpacking #backpacker #hitchhiking #conservation #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #photography

Light for Life two year flashback. On this day in 2017 Shanan Miller funded this boma in honor of her beloved husband’s Kieth’s memory. This boma located in the extended territory of our beloved Marsh pride of lions had frequent losses due to lion and leopards. Our “sentinels” are ensuring no big cat losses to poison or spears. 🦁💖 #thisisafrica #africa #kenya #maasaimaranationalreserve #maasaimara #letlionslive #lightforlife #savelions #savebigcats #saveleopards #predatordeterrentlighting #naturephotography #nature

Such an unbelievable experience to see lions this close up while in Kenya a couple of years ago

The "Big Five" is a term first coined to denote the animals most dangerous to hunt by foot: lions, cape buffalo, rhinoceros, leopards, and elephants. However, as our guide explained, all the animals in the reserve are very accustomed to seeing the jeeps multiple times a day and have learned that they pose no threat. Importantly, the animals also have never associated the jeeps with food, as no feeding of the wildlife is permitted. So we would only be in danger should we be foolish enough to step outside the vehicle, as the shape of the car "masked" our human form. Amazingly, this allowed our guide to drive within 20 feet of this amazing view in our open-sided Land Cruiser. #elephant #maasaimara . . . #kenya #visitafrica #placestovisit #safari #wanderlust #traveltheworld #travelgram #travelphotography #passionpassport #naturelovers #elephants #babyanimals #beautifulearth #naturephotography #justgoshoot #getoutstayout #colors_of_day #sonyimages #sonyalpha6000 #sel70300g

Cub alert! We have such exciting news: yesterday, new cubs were spotted in the Sausage Tree Pride, including a teeny tiny lion cub, barely two weeks old! The cubs are suspected to belong to Kinky Tail (whose cubs we've been dying to see since December), she was not present during this sighting. One of the other Sausage Tree lionesses happily obliged to taking care of the little one, playing the part of a "cub taxi." Welcome to the world little lion! Didn't catch this LIVE?

Looking back through my archives I came across this image of the lioness Siena. Some of you may recognise her by the floppy left ear. She was a member of the Marsh Pride in the Maasai Mara and was mentioned in the lion episode of the recent Dynasties documentary series. This image of her is from Sept 2014. Sadly, she went missing in Dec 2015 and it is assumed she was one of the victims of deliberate poisoning by locals in retaliation for livestock killings. _ #lion #lions #bigcats #bicatsofinstagram #animalsofinstagram #animallovers #masaimara #maasaimara #wildlife #nature #shots_of_animals #africanamazing #african_portraits #featured_wildlife #splendid_animals #discoverafrica #indianafricanwildlife #africanimals #wildlife_perfection #wildlife_vision #wu_africa

No collection of safari photos would be complete without this gentle giant. Although funnily enough, it’s elephants (and buffalo) that locals are most scared of. We’ve been warned to stay well clear. Elephants are unpredictable, strong and can be hotheaded — the complete opposite to how they’re perceived at home. . . A couple of nights ago we camped in a Maasai village. Pastor Cyrus, the main man, explained that we’d be super safe behind the school as they had a security guard. He stressed that the security guard wasn’t for bad people, but in fact elephants, who enter the village at night and demolish the school’s veg patch. And sure enough, around 4am, we heard the unmistakable noise of an elephant ripping vegetation and chomping away. Through a small peep hole in the tent, we watched the security guard try and scare him off with barking noises and a flash light. It took a while, but it worked. #wildlivesofwildlife #UKtoNZ

Spotted hyena kill 95% of what they eat, while striped hyena are largely scavengers. Ya don’t want to run into either really though, do ya? Yet after leaving our safari camp, what do we spot less than 100 m off the track, in broad daylight? A hyena eating his lunch (so much for the dawn and dusk rule). Yes he spotted us. Yes he edged towards us. Yes we were on the bikes. Yes we were cycling slowly up a gravelly incline. Yes he watched us the whole time. Yes there was no one else around. Yes we were terrified. Hyenas can hit 60 km/h. We were going around 8 km/h. We’d of had no chance. A local later told us that hyenas are actually scared of humans. That being said, we don’t want to run into another one. #wildlivesofwildlife #UKtoNZ . . This photo was taken from the safety of a safari car. We did not hang around on the bikes.

Sleeping danger! #hyena #masaimara #kenya #africasafari #no_emptiness #igkenya 🇰🇪 Spotted hyenas may kill as many as 95% of the animals they eat while striped hyenas are largely scavengers. Generally, hyenas are known to drive off larger predators, like lions, from their kills, despite having a reputation in popular culture for being cowardly. There are currently around 10,000 mature adult hyenas in the world, according to the National Wildlife Foundation. 🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂 #safari #africatravel #loveafrica #wildafrica #natureshots #migration 🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍 #globelletravels #beautifulmatters #neverstopexploring #travelphotography #passionpassport #instatravel 🏕🏕🏕🏕🏕🏕🏕🏕🏕🏕🏕 #mara #masaimaranationalpark #bigfive #kenya🇰🇪 #masai #maasaimara #sunsetporn #magicalkenya @magicalkenya @wildlifeplanet @natgeokenya @kenyawildlifeservice @discoveringkenya @igkenya #hyenas #spottedhyena
