Day 11 – Heart of Africa Motorcycle Tour

6am, we were in the game drive vehicles and ready for a full day’s game viewing in the Serengeti.

Setting out before sunrise

The huge outstretched plains awaited as we saw the sunrise over the huge expanse.

As we stopped for breakfast on a rocky outcrop, we climbed from the vehicles… and we scared away two lions giving us a bit of an adrenaline rush.

We were extremely lucky with many animals close to our vehicles, and the only one of the Big 5 still eluding us, is the Black Rhino. Hopefully we will spot one tomorrow as we descend into the Ngorongoro crater.

Taking pictures the whole day is exhausting.
