This is driver-guide Arnold Mushi writing from Arusha, Tanzania after the completion of another wonderful safari (October 21, 2013 to November 1, 2013). This trip was really very good and we had many good sightings during our 12 days together. We started from the North Serengeti along the Mara River and made our way down through the North Serengeti, West Serengeti, Central Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and finally Tarangire National Park. Along the way we stayed at several great camps including Buffalo Camp, Mbalageti Camp, Sametu Camp, Lemala Camp and Kikoti Camp.
Below are several photos that I took while on safari that I would to share with the ADS community:
