✦ Serengeti NP, Tanzania
Lions spend most of the day lying around and snoozing in the high grass, so seeing a group of them hunting down a wildebeest in the legendary Serengeti National Park felt really unique. However this specific pic was taken a few hours later and was our closest encounter with a lioness. With the previous kill still in our minds, a two meters distance didn´t feel comfortable at all, but staring right into the eyes of such an incredible animal was an opportunity better not missed.

✦ Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
During numerous gamedrives in Africa it was not our first encounter with a lion, but definitely one of the most memorable ones. When this male came towards us, passed our car and approached a group of lionesses, he eventually created a huge mass panic in the crater. From what we understand he wanted to chase off the lionesses hunting in his territory, who themselves ran away towards a big herd of wildebeests. The wildebeests however thought that the lions were hunting them, so they started running in all directions. As if that was not enough, a bunch of hyenas joined the scene and looked for a chance to find a young wildebeest separated from the herd to make a kill. Within a few minutes the whole area around us was moving and you could literally feel the animals´ tension. In the middle of this mess there were the two of us standing upright in our vehicle not knowing where to look first and having one of the most surreal safari experiences ever.

✦ Stonetown, Zanzibar
After being trapped in the traditional Christmas food coma, it´s time to get back to this thing called healthy lifestyle. Does looking at vegetables also count?
