OMG how beatiful photos! You have been so lucky to seen so many beautiful animals!
May I ask, what kind of objective you have? I should buy a better one, and want to have same that you have :) But I can guess that i can't afford it right now...

Great pictures! I took this tour in October and love seeing other people's photos from there. The one of the male lion standing on the rock with the orange/red sky in the background is stunning! That one should be entered in some kind of photo contest! :)

WOW...those sunset shots are great. What camera did you use and do you do any post-processing too? I'm going to Uganda in Feb'12 so any tips would be cool.

Great photos, thanks for sharing

Beautiful! I sent the "sunset lion" off to Stumbleupon. It was wonderful.

I absolutely love your photos and am looking forward to my own photo opportunities. Can you tell me what zoom lens you would deem essential to take (i.e. what you found you required the most) and approx how close are you able to get to any animals at the crater?

Stunning photos! Looks like you had a pretty good zoom to get those bird shots. Looks like you also did some good work on pp.
