By Arnold Mushi – The Great Safari!
Good morning from Tanzania! My name is Arnold Mushi and I am a professional guide with Africa Dream Safaris though everyone here just calls us ADS. I just came back from my latest trip ending on 29th January 2013. This trip covered two parks, Serengeti National Park (with focus on the Central, Eastern and Southern areas including the Ndutu and Ngorongoro Conservation Areas), and Ngorongoro Crater.
I had two guests on this safari and we all very much enjoyed this great adventure. It was a thrilling safari. I have been a guide for over 10 years now and I still look forward to every safari. This last trip was incredible for the animal viewing. We had 2 nights at Seronera Sametu Camp, 3 nights Camping on the Serengeti plains at Naabi Hill, 2 nights at Lake Masek Lodge and ended with 2 nights at the Ngorongoro Crater. Below I would love to share some great sightings we came across:
It was in Gol kopjes to the east of Naabi Hill were we saw these two cheetahs on their honeymoon.
This male Cheetah was marking his home range to warn other male cheetahs.
These two male lions were up in the sausage tree running from the sun and flies in the Moru Kopjes of the Southwest Serengeti.
This big male lion was advertising his presence to other males in Gol Kopjes.
This is the great wildebeest migration. We came across the largest concentrations around Simiyu and Moru Kopjes.
Crowned Cranes pictured here in Seronera Valley, Central Serengeti.
One of the legendary black-maned lions of the Ngorongoro Crater. We saw many large male lions during this safari.
As they say last but not least, the mighty elephant, one of my favorite animals.
