Ever see the movie Ghost in the Darkness? The movie is filmed here -- it is a true story -- 100 years ago a rail road was being built from the Mombasa --on the Indian Ocean-- to Nairobi across Kenya. This was to transport supplies, visitors, and hunters. While it was being built in the area of Tsavo, many workers lost their lives to these lions. Hence the name Man-eaters of Tsavo. The interesting thing about these lions is that they have unusually high testosterone levels which makes them more aggressive and they have no mane. Kind of like male patterned baldness. They learned to like the taste of humans and were easy to catch as they didn't run fast. Hundreds of people lost their lives building this railroad to these lions.
Kenya is in a draught--they have not had measurable rainfall for 3 years

Baby elephants are so cute!
Cheetah's getting ready to hunt! I think these are one of the most beautiful animals in Africa!
