While I will get back to Kenya's cats soon enough, here is another attractive animal found in plentiful supply on the plains of the Masai Mara, a female Thompson’s gazelle (Eudorcas thomsoni). Gazelle is a name usually given to smaller antelope, of which there are many different species in the bovidae family. Bovids are herbivores, animals that have specially developed teeth and digestive systems that enable them to feed on grass, plants, foliage, and other forms of vegetation.

Herbivores like antelope are the primary source of food for carnivores such as lion, leopard, and cheetah, and once these carnivores have had their fill of a freshly killed herbivore, scavengers – like hyena, jackal, and vultures – quickly come in to pick the bones clean, such is the circle of life on the African savannah.

If you have something of a passion for animals as well as wildlife photography and wish to join us in Kenya on our next photo safari, feel free to contact me anytime for more details:

As opposed to regular safaris, we concentrate on improving your photographic skills and getting you into the most favourable situations in the field that will enable you to capture the best images of every given opportunities. We currently offer 7-day, 10-day, and 14-day photo safaris in Kenya, in addition to which I will be happy to share my knowledge of developing photos to help you bring out the very best of your own.

Thank for sharing you time with me and wishing you a great weekend ahead :)
