Africa

The Savanna Bush
These open park-like savannas are areas of grassland with scattered spreading acacia and baobab trees. Slightly higher rainfall in the adjacent hill country permits more trees to grow in regions such as this. Savannas are inhabited by browsing animals such as the prehensile-lipped black rhinoceros, impala, and kudu.

The Savanna Water Hole
Rivers and water holes are congregating points for a wide variety of savanna wildlife, particularly during the dry seasons of spring and summer. In September, with the returning rains, huge herds of wildebeest, gazelle, and zebra disperse into the plains.

The Salt Lick in the Bamboo Forest
Abundant rainfall in the mountains encourages rainforest growth on lower slopes while at higher elevations nearly pure stands of bamboo thrive. A salt lick would be an attraction for elephants, bongos, and other small animals.

The Masai Lion Hunt
The lion, potential enemy of all herdsmen, preys on the cattle of the Masai. Protected only by their thick shields made of antelope or zebra skins, Masai warriors kill lions with long spears and short defensive swords. Much prestige attends the successful hunter, especially the one who throws the first spear.
