If the death of the baby elephant on Attenborough’s ‘Africa’ series was heart-rending stuff, the sequence of the Agama lizard eating flies around the sleeping lion, was pure fun!
All the big cats climb onto the Kopjes, the huge granitic outcroppings of the Serengeti, probably for the view of both potential enemies and potential prey and for the cooling winds. But also possibly, simply because they’re there.
If you ever spend time in the great short grass plains of the Serengeti, (and I strongly recommend you do!) you too will feel a huge pull to climb up on those great and ancient rocks and survey the magnificent scenes around. They’re also a fantastic place for a sundowner and often truly spectacular African sunsets!
For other pictures of the Serengeti and it’s magnficent kopjes and wildlife, visit the Flickr gallery on my website at www.journeyintoafrica.com under Tanzania.
