June was the Month of the Lion

June is always considered a bit of a gamble when it comes to safari in Northern Tanzania - and when I say a "gamble" it's not really. Tanzania is incredible for wildlife all year round but the changing of the seasons means that the game is a little spontaneous than usual. 

Anyway, June this year was just unbelievable with the Great Migration moving up into the Northern region of the Serengeti - right around our Akiba Kibwe Serengeti Camp. But most noteworthy was the number of lion spotted. The big cats seem to be in abundance in both Tarangire National Park and the Serengeti. It was great to see so many prides thriving.
