By Ellison Mkonyi – A Perfect New Year Safari

Jambo! My name is Ellison Mkonyi and I am a driver-guide with Africa Dream Safaris. I have just returned from the Serengeti having finished my first safari for the new year 2013. My safari was from January 10 to January 16 and it was the perfect safari to start the new year. We saw many animals. The variety of wildlife in the Serengeti always amazes me and the green season is one of my favorite seasons to enjoy watching the migration on the Serengeti plains. One of the highlights form my safari was seeing these adorable lion cubs (first picture) at the Gol Kopjes in the East Serengeti and also the great migration, cheetahs, baby lions nursing and very close experiences with the big Serengeti elephants.

Myself and many of the guides at Africa Dream Safaris have been given small size cameras that fit in our shirt pockets. We use them to take a couple pictures during the safari. I hope you enjoy my pictures.

    Ellison, it was so good to see a picture of you. Most every day, I think of our trip with you in May, 2012 (I have my photographs on a continuing loop on my computer). It was the best trip of our lives. Sometimes when my family and I are together, we wonder what you might be doing at that moment. We may never be able to have such an experience as we had with you and Africa Dream Safari, but we will never forget it.

    oh, and by the way, it really wouldn’t hurt to smile in your picture. I remember your smile as lighting up the whole Serengeti!!!

    Your photography is very good Ellison. I am impressed with the Violet Breasted Roller picture with a small automatic camera.
    Our next safari we will request you as a guide. Thank you for sharing your stories and pictures.
