Gilbert Ngyendo .uganda kabale south western uganda .am a football referee by profession l happened to officiate one match in Rwenshama fishing village this place is situated with in a national park queen Elizabeth on the shores of Lake George and Edward it even boarders Congo. When l was officiating the match two elephant come from the nearby bush the pitch was there mating place , but me l didn't know that it elephants where coming towards the ground l thought fun's where shouting or cheerful but all over sadden all the spectators had taken off for their lives it's one of the player of Rwenshama fc who told me "referee stop the match this season is of elephants s mating and this is their mating venue so l stopped my match for like twenty minutes , for another match l didn't have a camera would have taken some photos. Elephants are so funny after their game they went back to the bush towards Congo side en l believe if some organise s another football game in the same season could do a good documentary. The team Rwenshama fc was later sold and transfered to kampala l wish one day come and pay a visit to Rwenshama .from that day l got to love elephants +256782574504 on what's app

Tired Lion
In the afternoon, lions are still so tired in the heat of the Samburu National Reserve and look for a shady place. Because of the great heat they also do not have such a huge mane like lions in the Masai Mara. This lion is about 7-8 years old.
Wish you all a great weekend!!

Caracal cub waiting for Mom in a dark hole in Masai Mara, Kenya
Hello dear wildlife friends,
This was one of my highlights during my recent safari in the Masai Mara, because to see a Carcal, is something very special. It was very, very dry in the Mara and I had to fight with the dust and the very high grass. The migration was spectacular but also very sad, many died wildebeest during the Mara River crossing and the bodies floating in the river. We are not psychologically managed to stay there for more than twice, because many small wildebeest had broken legs and cried. That was for me and my granddaughter too much! Therefore, we focused on the big and small cats.

Die Kommentare sind z.T. so Klasse, ich könnte quietschen vor Lachen!
Aber Deine Bilder sind wirklich unglaublich, ganz toll, ich bin Dein absoluter Fan! Weiterhin ganz viel Glück und Erfolg!
Würde sogar liebend gerne mit Dir durchs Gestrüpp robben, trotz Moskitos und 50° C. in der Sonne, um mal mit auf Foto-Safari zu gehen! <3. <3. <3

I was happy to see this beautiful Elephant bull. I hope he will still have a long life and no poachers find it.

Olive my favorite Leopard in Masai Mara is dead!
I accompanied her for many years, seen all her cubs grow up. Now she was pregnant and I was looking forward to November to see her babies. She was killed by lions on 24 September. I saw the sad photo and had tears in my eyes. Beautiful Olive will always remain in my mind, how much I will miss this great Leopard lady soon! R.I.P. Olive!!
This photo of her I have done the end of July this year.

My Passion is Wildlife photography
Introduction
"Es gibt etwas beim Safari-Leben, das dich alle Sorgen vergessen lässt und dir das Gefühl gibt, du hättest eine halbe Flasche Campagner getrunken - es gibt etwas, das dich überschäumen lässt vor tief empfundener Dankbarkeit am Leben ..."
(Karen Blixen-Finecke)

Vor 12 Jahren reiste ich das erste Mal nach Afrika und unternahm meine erste Safari. Sie führte mich in einen Nationalpark in Südafrika - meine erste Begegnung mit wilden Tieren und die unendliche Weite Afrikas. Ich war vom ersten Moment an tief beeindruckt und von Gefühlen überwältigt. Noch nie zuvor vergaß ich meine Arbeit im Urlaub, hier in der Wildnis Afrikas gab es keinen Gedanken mehr daran. Es zählte nur das Jetzt, das Beobachten, das totale Einlassen auf das Geschehen in der Wildnis. 

Kaum zu Hause entwickelte sich eine große Sehnsucht nach Afrika, die bis heute anhielt. Deshalb kehrte ich immer wieder zurück nach Südafrika, Namibia, Botswana, Kenia und Tansania. 

Ich begann zu Fotografieren, einmal um die Zeit bis zur nächsten Afrikareise für mich zu Hause zu überbrücken, aber auch, um anderen Menschen zu zeigen, welche unvorstellbaren Schönheiten die Wildnis Afrikas bietet, die es unbedingt zu erhalten gilt, damit auch unsere Kinder und Enkelkinder das eines Tages erleben dürfen.
