Lions seen and heard


Last night the lions were rambunctious. We were awakened at least three times by their roaring.

The hyenas were a little feisty too.

Our camp manager told us that the lions were between one and two kilometers away; their roar can carry up to six kilometers.

By Vicki’s count we have seen at least 40 lions so far in the Serengeti alone. Heard a few more.

Funny how sleeping in a canvas tent really improves one’s hearing.


We are currently camping in the Rongai hills of eastern Tanzania. However, our usual haunt is in Israel-Palestine. If experiencing the world of the Bible is something you would like to do, email me at or check out our list of future trips here. We are currently scheduling groups for 2022, although some seats are open for 2020 and 2021.
