We posted these pictures from the Amsterdam airport as we were waiting to catch our flights back home. They are just a few selections from our truly awesome Arusha National Park safari experience, during which we were just a few yards away from many of the animals that we most identify with Africa: giraffes, zebras, monkeys, warthogs, water buffaloes, and various kinds of bush deer. We also saw a lake lined with hundreds and hundreds of flamingos (though we didn't get a very good picture to capture that sight). We didn't see lions or other big cats (they don't live in this area), nor did we see elephants, though they might have been there out of our sight. Our guide, Pascal, lives in Arusha and has led many safaris through the park. All of these pictures were taken by Alec unless he is in them. You can click on any picture to enlarge it.
