As far as I can remember this was taken late in 1999. We (myself, my wife, two daughters and my mother in law) were in Kenya for a wedding, but before it took place we went on safari to the Masai Mara. This is where this picture was taken, most likely with a Canon AE-1 and I think a Vivitar 70-210 mm lens.

While there we were able to see most of the wildlife: Giraffes, Elephants, Cheetah (such as the one above); Wildebeast, Buffalo, Antelopes of all kinds, Zebra, Baboons, Hyenas etc. We were also lucky enough to see a rhino, which were told were quite uncommon. The only animal we didn’t see was a leopard, which was for me a shame because I’ve always loved leopards. Apparently they’re quite solitary animals and not easy to spot.

We had a great time. I’d love to go again.
