This is not gonna end well

From a lion point of view, Savana is just a huge supermarket. Attending a lion hunting is an experience you will never ever forget.

 

First Stage of lion hunting, Serengeti National Park

It all starts with a bunch of animals feeding.In this case Zebras. And lions love zebras...

Zebras, candidate for hunting - Serengeti National Park

Lions approache so slowly through the grass, that people don't even realize how and when exactly the attack takes place. A hunting can last for hours. All of a sudden, a lion appears from a bushes and jumps onto one of the Zebras - the one that is separated from the group. It is matter of few seconds: the scared animals begin to run raising lots of dust.

Behind the dust something eventually appears: the lion succeeded in grabbing the throath of the animal. It starts now an incredible struggle that lasts for less than one minute

Finally, when the zebra is exausted for not breathing and lays on the floor defeated, something really special happens: a second lion appears, and dominating the zebra, for a few seconds fiercely stares at us. She seems to say: "we've done it"

As soon as the struggle is over, other lions (all female) magically appear from nowhere.

And more are about to come...

And even more...There's a lot of food to share. Generally at this stage the male appears and eats the best part of the animal. Unfortunately (for us) or Fortunately (for him), he his on the mating period and he has other issues to deal with...

Serengeti

Serengeti National Park is a dream. When talking about a Sfari, it is one of the most important areas of the world for its beauty, landscape and of course animals.

As we go on inside te park, we soon realize that there are several different habitats populated by tons of animals in every corner.

Elephants, Gazelle, Zebras... Serengeti

When eventually we spot a leopard, we realize how easy is mimetizing for the animals. Not even the zebras, feeding few meters from his head, realize it.

Can you see it? Serengeti

We can go back home satisfied, tomorrow is another day...

Seven Seconds

Watching the king of the forest having sex is definitely an experience

Lion Approaching, Serengeti National Park

The king of the forest has quite a comfortable life. He lies under the tree all day while all female lions are around for hunting. From time to time he also chooses one of the mates of his group for having sex. The approach is quite easy.

The first step is having quite a good nap, possibly under the shade of a tree.

Lion Resting, Serengeti National Park

When the female is ready, she growns a little bit communicating to the king her wishes.

If he does not wake up, she approaches and repeats the sound again

The Lion,apparently in a deep sleep, is up and ready instantly.

The act begins... end ends in a matter of seconds - seven. Eigth, at most. I would have guessed something a little bit more for the king of the forest...

Lion having sex - Serengeti National Park

They are both now (apparently) satisfied...

Besides the short performance, it is now time for a little nap. After aproximatly twenty minutes, the scene take places again. And again, and again... The couple will be having sex for a 24 hours period. So, who's the king of the forest again?

Let's rest for 20 minutes, than start again - Serengeti National Park

Ngoro

'Ngoro 'ngoro, UNESCO patrimone, is one of the biggest craters in the world. Approaching the internal part is just magic. From the above the view is breathless.

bags are ready to go

Deep Blue

A Trip Around the world will be a great opportunity to visit extraordinary seasides, beaches and reefs. This is the reason I have purchased an underwater camera and done a PADI course for experiencing the deep blue... RTW trip stars in 8 days: stay tuned for incredible scuba activities...

Rajastan: North of India

Un insieme di colori, odori, situazioni incredibili. Il Rajasthan, nell'India del Nord, ci offre delle emozioni impagabili: dalle città più grandi ci spostiamo fino ai paesini minori, passando per un caledoscopio di persone e situazioni irripetibili. Delhi, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Chittaurgarh, Bundi, Pushkar, Jaipur, Agra... e tanti altri piccoli e grandi luoghi attraversati e osservati durante il nostro viaggio on the road.

Saint Petersburg

Avventura in Russia. Un paese ancora ostico dal punto di vista turistico, difficile e costoso da raggiungere. San Pietroburgo, una citta' che in soli tre secoli di vita ne ha accumulate di storie da raccontare... Giriamo per i famosi (e non) musei, cattedrali, palazzi e chiese percorrendo la citta' in lungo e in largo, attraversando i suoi ponti, le sue lunghe e immense strade, gigantesche piazze. ... e guardando, un po' curiosi, un po' esterefatti e sorpresei, questi russi (e non solo...) !!

Big in Japan

Della  tecnologico-futuristica Tokyo si esplorano i quartieri più significativi per poi passare ai siti storici più importanti della zona, come Nikko e Kamakura. Si visita da vicino il sacro Monte Fuji per poi spostarsi nel cuore delle alpi giapponesi nella suggestiva Takayama. Si arriva poi a Kyoto, capitale culturale artistica e storica del paese, dove scompaiono grattacieli e centri commerciali per far posto alla tradizione più vera. Si passa poi per Nara, la prima capitale dell'impero, per visitare poi la purtroppo famigerataHiroshima e concludere con un po' di relax ad Osaka, dove impazzano nuovo tecnologie, vita notturna e divertimenti folli.

Ma perù

Da Lima, "la capital", si scende nel sud del paese passando lungo la costa arida e desertica: La riserva nazionale di Paracas e le isole Ballestas, Pisco, Ika, l'oasi di Huacachina e Nazca con le sue misteriose linee. Il viaggio poi si inerpica su per le Ande, la bella e festeggiante Arequipa circondata dallo strepitoso Canion del Colca - dove per un momento sfioriamo i 5000 metri. Pochi gradini fanno venire il fiatone a Puno, sulle sponde del lago Titicaca (quota 3800), le cui isole (Amantani', Uros e Taquile) ci folgorano con paesaggi e tramonti incredibili...
