Monkey in Tarangire National Park

This little rascal was running around a picnic area stealing bananas. Our tour guide said we could eat bananas when he was at the table, but that if he left or we walked away from him, that the moneys would attack. I was confused. Why would they avoid him, but not us? The answer was simple, the monkeys there are racist! He explained that they do not steal bananas from black people, but they do from white people. Sure enough, we looked over to where some white people were eating lunch without a black person at the table, and the monkeys charged over and stole their bananas. Our table was safe 😀


We got to see this stunningly beautiful tiger at the Cheetah Rock wildlife sanctuary. The first image was taken as close as it looks, and no, there was no cage protecting me! We had to sit with our butts firmly planted against the edge of his cage, while the sanctuary worker took this majestic beast for a walk past us. The tiger seemed quite chilled out and happy for us to be there. My camera was maybe 30 cm from it’s face when the picture was taken. The other photos were taken safely behind a cage however.


We saw this amazing lions at the Cheetah Rock wildlife sanctuary.
