Your Scene: On safari in the Serengeti

There’s a very tall animal in this photo. Do you see it? Look at the center and you’ll spot a giraffe watching Times reader “rdabk96.”

“On safari in the Serengeti last month, my wife, Gloria, asked me to take some pictures of the sunset over the lake near our mobile tented camp, since we would be leaving for home the next day,” says the photographer. “To my surprise, I found a giraffe looking back at me from the bush.”

The Serengeti plain in Tanzania and Kenya is renowned for sights such as this one. Huge herds of mammals, including wildebeests, gazelles, giraffes and zebras, roam these vast grasslands. Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, a wildlife refuge within the plains, is known for its mass migrations of animals.
