Thank you a lot for your support. Cheetahs need help...

A HANDSOME LIZARD

The Monitor Lizard is quite common, but nevertheless not often seen. This beautiful individual was spotted by Oltepesi guest Sandip Gupta while we were together on a game drive near the Mara River together with Tom Dyring and John Siololo. Because of the low angle of our special modified vehicle, I got a nice blurred foreground framing the lizard. Thanks to Sandip for his sharp eye!

BLUE EYES

Oltepesi's photo guide Arnfinn Johansen Wildlife Photography named this leopard "Blue Eyes" when he photographed him the first time in May 2017. Back then he was about 6 months old. Now he is nearly two years old and soon fully grown, and all the guides and tourists in Mara refer to him as Blue Eyes. That's cool we think!

Really handsome he is, and still he is sometimes seen together with his mother, Pretty Girl in the area ten minutes drive from Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp.
