Our safari two weeks ago to Tanzania was beyond our expectations! We had so many magical moments! Our first animal siting was a group of zebras on the runway when we were trying to land causing us to make a second approach! We also saw an elephant and giraffe out the plane window just as we were landing. What a start!
We saw a pride of 10 or more lions, a set of cubs, wildebeest, cheetahs and a host of rare birds all on our first afternoon. Our amazing guides Russell and Thomson were so knowledgeable and could spot everything! By the end of the week, we had tracked numerous leopards, seen three lion kills, cheetah cubs, baboons, blue monkeys and so much more! We saw it ALL!
Our accommodations were great and in the perfect order. We loved how the tent camps made us feel so much apart of the environment. We ended at the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge and what a treat it was! The views from our room were breathtaking and the elegant amenities and warm bath waiting for us at the end of the day were a pleasant surprise.
The days we spent on safari were filled with many magical moments that our group will treasure for a lifetime! Probably the most magical moment was rounding a corner on our second afternoon heading back to the camp and seeing 50 to 60 giraffes silhouetted by the sunset. It was like something out of a movie.
