We started our journey of Wild Tanzania with some stunning landscapes that left us breathless. Then we were lucky to have witnessed the memorable Leopard kill and also to have spent a morning with a pride of Lions. And this is just the beginning as Serengeti – the endless plains has so much more to offer.

In this post, we feature the absolutely beautiful Grey Crowned Cranes, a threatened species of East Africa. The Cranes are known for their characteristic crown of golden feathers and synchronous dancing displays, which is such a delight to watch! Yet another unique behavior is that they are one of the few crane species to roost on trees.
