Dreams of Africa

Out on a Limb

Relaxing, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

“You have to understand – there is a romance to Africa. You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the hand of God. You watch the slow lope of a lioness and forget to breathe. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water. In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa, in the midday heat, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.”

― Jodi Picoult, Leaving Time

Farewell Serengeti. You saved one of the best for last. There are four lions and a weaver’s best in this tree. Can you find them all?
