African wildlife works hard in front of millions of tourist cameras every year. And if all play by the rules, animals might even benefit from that job!
Hyenas are not exactly beloved animals. Still many see them as scavengers though research revealed already 50 years ago that they are supreme hunters.
Impalas are not only beautiful to look at – they have many interesting adaptations and a fascinating breeding system. At your next visit to the Mara, take your time and enjoy watching them for a while!
In nature, there is not only competition between species – sometimes surprising alliances are formed!
Exciting little things happen day by day in the wild – mainly unnoticed by most visitors in national parks.
Giraffes are especially beloved by animal photographers as their silhouettes beautifully enhance every sundown in the savanna…
Many people see jackals as cowards, steeling morsels from athletic hunters. But that is no easy business at all and most of their food is earned by themselves anyway!
Most visitors to the Maasi Mara think of the graceful “Tommies” first and foremost as a good meal for cheetahs. Too bad, you will be missing something…
One thing is for sure: Visitors to African National Parks like nothing more than cute little cheetahs, the smaller the better. But please: Don’t press too hard on their lairs, it might be deadly for them.
