By Claude Shitindi – Photos From My February Safari
Greetings from Arusha, Tanzania. My name is Claude Shitindi and I am a driver-guide with Africa Dream Safaris. I have just returned from a 10-night safari to the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater beginning February 6, 2013 and ending February 16, 2013. We enjoyed many different areas of the park and also a nice mixture of lodging and camping including Seronera Sametu Camp in the Central Serengeti Woodlands, Private Camping in the Southern Serengeti Plains, Ngorongoro Serena Lodge on the rim of the Crater and finally Lake Manyara Serena Lodge.
Included here are some of my favorite pictures I managed to take on the safari with my guests. We very much enjoyed our adventure together!
Lastly, here is the latest Migration Report:
Scattered herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle are currently ranging around Naabi Hill and the Triangle area of the Southern Serengeti. Medium sized herds were seen further south around the Matiti Plains. Immediately around the Ndutu Woodlands there is good viewing for giraffe, elephant, leopard and lion. To the west of Ndutu is currently the best area for cheetahs. The Central Serengeti including Seronera Valley is also great for game viewing currently especially Maasai and Sametu Kopjes with fantastic sightings of lion, elephant, buffalo and giraffe. Lastly, around Moru Kopjes there are huge herds of zebras and wildebeest that were arricing from Kusini area and we got lucky with rhino sightings there too. I am not sure if these herds around Moru will stay or go back to southern plains and Ndutu when there is more rain.
