Guide Report for March 7, 2014 – Wildebeest Migration On Short Grass plains.

Hi everyone again! I’m here with the another bush report after completing an 11 day safari (February 23, 2014 to March 5, 2014) with my three guests named Annette, Scott and Judy. We started in the southern plains of the Serengeti National Park and stayed at Ndutu Safari Lodge for 4 nights. We did our game drives around the Ndutu area, hidden valley, marsh area, along Lake Masek and in the short grass plains for the first two days of our stay. Also we managed to drive to Nasera Rock for a nature walk with a Maasai warrior named ‘’Esupet’’ and also game viewing around Gol Kopjes.

We had another 4 nights at Sametu Camp located in the far Eastern side of the Serengeti National Park which is away from the crowded Central Serengeti Seronera area. In this area we had a chance to game drive around Moru Kopjes, Makoma plains, Retima hippo pool, and Sametu Kopjes.

And finally on the last two nights at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge, we visited Olduvai Gorge Museum, and Ngorongoro Crater/Caldera. But also we had a day excursion in Lake Manyara National Park before driving to Mount Meru Hotel in Arusha. The following pictures below shows some of the highlights we encoutered in the bush.

  1. Jambo Russel. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge about Tanzania and its’ wildlife with us. Of course, this includes the birds, however, I am still waiting for my new 600 mm lens!!!! You are the consumate gentleman and were the best guide we could have gotten. We appreciate the fact that we never felt rushed. As a result, we had numerous opportunities to observe the wildlife “doing what they do” without having to move on to the next spot!!! Your keen sense of humour was also appreciated!!!! “Well spotted” Russel!!!!

    Asante sana

    Annette, Scott and Judy.
