Photo credit: Roger BrendhagenDa er jeg hjemme igjen etter ti magiske dager på jobb i Kenya.
Det ble mange økter liggende på magen - og det verker fortsatt i nakke og rygg, men det var verdt det!

Nå blir det ti dager hjemme på fjellet i karantene - en tid som skal brukes til å gå igjennom fotofangsten, skrive artikler og en ny bok.

Stor takk til Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp og Arnfinn Johansen for god tilrettelegginga og hjelp! Takk også til Øyvind Møller for hyggelig reisefølge.

I november blir det to runder med workshop i Masai Mara - håper du har lyst til å bli med! :-)

This is Imani the cheetah, and I got to spend quite some time with her and her cubs during our last safari to Kenya, so don't say I didn't warn you - you will see plenty of pictures of them in the coming months!
Many people do not realize how difficult it is for cheetahs to survive, not to mention to raise cubs.
In the few weeks we followed them, Imani lost one of her cubs to lions.
She fought lions multiple times - risking her own life.
She saved her cubs from both hyenas and lions.
She made multiple kills to feed her cubs, and lost many of these kills to hyenas.
She navigated her cubs carefully between predators, crossing running rivers and dealing with the elements like heavy rains and very hot days.
And all this time, she had to nurse, play, clean and protect them - always being alert - barely resting.
Imani is a relatively older cheetah, that most of her litters thus far didn't make it to adulthood despite how good of a mother she is. Let's hope that the three musketeers she has left, will get to grow up and have cubs of their own, so her hard work was not in vain.
Here she is on the lookout with two of her then four cubs.

Etter et døgn på reise kom vi frem til Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp i Masai Mara i ettermiddag - og vi rakk en 3-timers fotoøkt før solen forsvant. Det har striregnet det siste døgnet - slik at de fleste elver, bekker og veier var fulle av vann og flodhester...
