We just got back from our African Safari today. We wanted to take a few minutes to let you know what a wonderful time we had and that we had priceless memories to last us a life time.
Greetings from Arusha, Tanzania. I have just finished my most recent safari with three guests William, Edward and Ed who are from Pesacola Florida, USA. While in the bush (January 26th to February 3rd) we had a wonderful time together with some spectacular wildlife viewing especially for the predators including lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena. Here are my three guests photographing hippos in the Central Serengeti.
Let’s face it. An African safari is a big trip for most people. It’s an endeavor which requires a significant investment of time, energy and money. This really is a “once in a lifetime” type of experience for many folks who may never get the opportunity to go back to Africa again, so naturally everyone wants to get it right the first time. “What time of year is the BEST time of year to go on safari?” seems like a critical question, especially because so many places in Africa (and other parts of the world) can be so seasonal. You just don’t want to miss out on anything important simply because you lacked the necessary information to plan it right.
This was our first African safari to Tanzania and we are already planning to return. It is impossible to put into words what this trip meant to us. What an incredible privilege we felt to share time with an amazing array of animals. The moment we stepped off the short flight from Arusha to the Central Serengeti, herds of wildebeest and zebra surrounded us as they joined the great migration.
