…as we seek to describe our safari. Each day was filled with wonderful surprises. To name only a few—the exciting wildebeest crossing at the Mara River within hours of our arrival, herds of elephants, elegant giraffes, an exciting lion kill, hours of watching cheetahs, leopards, lion prides, crazy baboons, monkeys, gorgeous birds, and peaceful sunsets with acacia trees silhouetted in the distance.
Michael, our driver/guide was wonderful. His knowledge of wildlife, history, and culture were of great interest to us. His sense of humor and fun-loving personality were a joy! And he certainly knew where to find the wildlife.
In Tarangire National Park, we were treated to a rare viewing of wild dogs, believed to be extinct a number of years ago. We think Michael was as excited as we were.
Our accommodations and food were superb. The Tanzanian people are lovely with smiles all around. As we said goodbye, a piece of our heart remained in this beautiful part of our world.
Many thanks, Michael. Many thanks, Lynn, as you patiently guided us through the planning process. And thank you ADS.

PS We did manage to carry on our luggage. Our wardrobe was less than fashionable!
