Here, kitty kitty kitty.

Warning: no cat videos here. That’s over here (and this is a great cat video!).

These kitties are gorgeous jungle cats. Their roaring in the distance kept me up at night and made me question the safety of my ‘tent’ in the middle of Tanzania’s Ndutu National Park, but a sleepless night is a little price to pay to see them in their home, doing what they do best – looking lithe and beautiful.

On our visit to three of Tanzania’s parks – Ndutu, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater gave us a chance to see all the cats – lions, leopards and cheetahs (oh my!).

Incredible to see the lioness napping up in the tree, an early morning encounter with a mother and her cubs, cheetahs getting a tan, and mating pairs of lions trying to ‘get it on’.

Fabulous moments, the pictures are only part of the story. This is one of those things where you really ‘had to be there’.
