Maasai giraffe

Around the year 2000, I went to the African nations of Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar & Seychelles Islands. 

The highlight of the trip were the safaris at the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The reserve stretches for 580 sq miles and is abundant with wildlife.  One morning I took a hot-air balloon ride soaring above the grasslands.  It gave a new perspective of the African savanna. 

Madagascar and the Seychelles Islands surprised me with their beauty and uniqueness.   I look forward to exploring them further.

 

I took these photographs with my Nikon  Coolpix 900 (1.2 mega-pixels) the state of the art consumer digital camera at that time.
