After our side trip to Maasi Mara (described in a previous OTR), we flew back to Nairobi where we met the guide and the fellow trekkers. This series of eight OTR submissions is organized more or less chronologically rather than by theme.
The photos are mainly of landscapes and the bushmen rather than wildlife. In part, because we rarely stopped to photograph animals. And in part, because the landscapes were so vast, with volcanic cones in the distance that we’d approach over the following days. Even so, the spotters were amazing. Apparently they don’t find animals by looking for movement—rather by looking for something unexpected, out of place… Also Washii always knew which of the anastomosing elephant tracks to follow through the bush.
Another unusual tree, this one—if I remember correctly—with puffy bird nests hanging from the branches. (We saw prints of African Hunting Dogs on our morning hike.)
