Tanzania. Big Cats. Photo Safari

Humans have always admired these animals. Some of them are like royals, impressive and majestic, they scare the night savanna by its roaring, spreading horror at its inhabitants. Others are as fast as the lighting. Each line of its bodies emphasizes superiority in speed and in a couple of seconds an unfortunate victim has no chances to survive. Thirds are careful and secretive. Every move is soft and flexible. Right now it lazily sleeps on a tree, having lowered paws and a tail, not paying attention to the events around. Another moment passed – and it softly slides on a tree trunk, down, in a grass where, while merging with vegetation and masking, it leaves away, showing all the independence and proud loneliness. Everything said is, of course, about big African cats — lions, cheetahs and leopards. Photographers’ dream, from professionals to beginners! Everyone finds something special while working with Big Cats in Tanzania— from peaceful family portraits of kittens playing next to a mother to rigid scenes of hunting and murder, with pieces of meat and bloody muzzles with naked canines. Serengeti National Park is the ideal place for shooting of these surprising animals. Welcome home.
