Day three Serengeti

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life

Rachel Carson

A most pleasant day. Walk in am again not quite three miles chameleon, dung beetles, ants, giraffes, dik-disks,termites. Lunch and Cindy had us collect grasses and estimate numbers of species. We split into 4 groups and each group came up with 12-15 different grasses. But what was interesting was each group had sort of different grasses. Basically a lot of species of grass.

Another game drive this pm with lots of giraffes, Wildebeast, grants gazelle, ostriches and usual lots of birds I cannot seem to remember or I’d list except ostrich, and secretary birds. Numerous of the birds are big like 1/3 meter to 2 meters.

A game of charades mimicking organisms we have seen and what they are doing, mine was giraffe eating acacia, and the other was a flamingo feeding.

Serengeti has been wonderful just having an endless horizon. And the solitude.

One thought on “Day three Serengeti

  1. After your cheetah/wildebeest story, I was really happy to read about categorizing grasses. I don’t know why I’m not yet a vegetarian. The solitude, though…..that must be magnificent.
