That old saying of “It’s better the second time around” is true. I just returned from my second trip with Adam and can’t believe how amazing it was. From the very first minutes of leaving Arusha to my last minute goodbye at the Grumeti Airstrip, each day brought new and exciting adventures.

Just to name a few in Tarangire National Park large herds of elephants, a parade of olive baboons, Lake Eyasi hunting with the Hadza Bushmen, watching the blacksmith craft arrowheads and grinding corn with women from the Datoga tribe.

As we journeyed down into the crater we encountered mating lions and located an endangered Black Rhino. In the Ndutu Woodlands and Seronera regions we spotted the shy Caracal, watched a mother cheetah with her cubs feasting on a Thomson Gazelle, and a pair of bat-eared fox. Our last stop was in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti where we witnessed the Great Migration of zebra and wildebeest crossing the Grumeti River with hippos and giant Nile crocodiles resting on the banks. Each day was better than the day before.

I just want to express my deepest thanks for another great trip starting with Nandi in the States, Zubeda in Arusha and of course Adam, my friend and one heck of a guide! All of you work together to make each trip special, with memories to last a lifetime. Best wishes for continued success and safe travels.

Until our paths meet again,
