Mammals in Tanzania

Probirder is back from Tanzania ! Lots of good birds of course, but overall the large mammals - zebras, wildebeest, giraffes, various gazelles and antelopes, black rhino, elephants, hippos, lions, including cubs, and 2 cheetahs - were the highlight. This young elephant was carefully guarded by the herd. Photo by Gerard Gorman.
