Guide Report – Exploring the Serengeti in May

Jambo from Arusha, Tanzania! This is ADS driver-guide Arnold here with my latest report from the bush. I just finished quite an adventurous safari yesterday. I had 6 guests from Tennessee, USA on an 11-day program through the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Ecoystems. Here’s a photo of a Leopard close to Maasai Kopjes climbing down from the top of an acacia tree.

The safari started on May 1, 2015 and ended on May 11, 2015. We spent a total of 7 nights in the Serengeti split between the Western, Central and Southern areas and then 3 nights in the Ngorongoro Highlands. It was a perfect itinerary for this time of year. Luckily, we received some rains recently after a very rough drought over the last few months.

Below are some pictures I took on this safari:
