November 15 – 23 I went to Tanzania for a safari trip.
It was my first time in Tanzania, although I had visited Africa before (Gambia and Morocco).
My main goal was naturally to see as many mammals and birds as possible and to collect a lot of reference material for paintings. I saw about 240 bird species and 34 mammal species.
Highlights of the trip were Tarangire´s rich nature with about 200 elephants seen.
A total of 75 lions seen during the trip, some of them very close to the car ( e.g. a lion pair walking on a grass wall just about 2-3 meters away from us in the Ngorongoro crater).
Five cheetahs, two Leopards and two Black rhinos etc, etc…
I have now started with some watercolour paintings and more will come, and perhaps also some oil paintings.
