We were driving along in the western corridor of the Serengeti and our driver hit the brakes and said "Chameleon!". He backed up and sure enough, this chameleon was in an acacia near the road.
We could get out of the car at the entrances to the Serengeti Park. One entrance had a trail which we followed. Agamas were sunning themselves on the rocks.
We do not know what this is.
Almost all animals moved out of the way when we drove through in the Toyota minibus. The exceptions were elephants and this mighty leopard tortoise. This animal refused to move and forced us to detour around it.
This animal was on the road near the water.
We were advised not to get too close to the water at the Grumeti River in the Serengeti. These are maneaters!
We also saw crocodiles in Selous.
We saw several monitor lizards. The small lizard was at the base of a bridge in the Serengeti. The big lizard was hanging around near the water in Ngorongoro crater.
