Beautiful sunset in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Like most people going on safari in Serengeti National Park in Northern Tanzania, I was thinking only of the amazing wildlife that I would encounter when I ventured there a few months ago. What caught me by surprise was that the Serengeti Plain is just so much more beautiful than I could have ever possibly imagined. The vastness of the plain with it’s different shades of gold, brown and green of the grass is just beautiful, and the huge herds and varieties of animals that inhabit it just adds to the experience.

I took this photo on my first day in the park as we made our way to our camp after an afternoon game drive. We had spent quite a while watching a female Cheetah with some cubs on the game drive, so we were running a bit later than expected. But as a result we were treated to this amazing sunset! I have never seen anything quite like it and I was literally mesmerized.

Serengeti is one beautiful place.

I have a dream of traveling to Africa, including to Serengeti. And the sunset in this part of the world is definitely one of the things I want to see the most. Thanks for reminding me of that dream!

Hi Bama. I’m glad this photo has been inspiring for you. Traveling to Africa was one of my dreams as well, and visiting places like this really was a dream come true. I’m sure you will make it there one day, and when you do I hope you have a fantastic time :)

Such a breathtaking scenery.
Love sunsets very much. It reminds me of a very peaceful day after all the hard work made during the day.

Hi Donna. There really isn’t anything much more peaceful than a nice sunset. Glad you liked the photo.

You only get lost if you have a destination.
Adventure has no destination.
