Lamai Serengeti

If you were to visit only one place in the Serengeti, it should be here.

The story of a rock kopje in the northern Serengeti, and daily life in the Serengeti's best new camp hidden within it.

It’s all about the green stuff!

The Serengeti ecosystem sustains its wonderous diversity by having a plethora of tasty grass species. The little sunbird above my desk is using dropseed grass to build its nest in a lamp shade while a million plus wildebeest are chasing around the national park hoping to take advantage of the fresh growth throughout the season.

There are some ten thousand species of grass worldwide and even on our own kopje they provide a great variety in colour, shape and size. They are currently in flower and though they make the animal spotting all the more challenging, they can be extremely beautiful in the evening light. 

Here are a selection of images Jana has taken in the last week, "a study in grass" - enjoy.
