East Africa, Tanzania

A small parade to start the day.  I must say, this trip has been really amazing.  Not only the sights I’ve seen, but meeting the people, too.  Staying in camps along the way has far exceeded any expectations I may have had.  I’m just going to post a few images here.

The Serengeti Highway ~ nothing but dirt and dust at every bounce, every jolt, every turn.

The Massai people, welcoming us with traditional dance.  I love the colorful clothing they wear daily.  We were given a tour of their boma, the settlement of their homes.  This village is in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Mama and her baby ~ they are very protective of the young and it was such a pleasure to photograph them together.

At the watering hole, where all the animals take a risk here ~ the zebras, the wildebeests, the gazelles, the warthogs, etc.  We did see lions attack from their hidden areas in the surrounding shade.

And so much more!  The trip of a lifetime!  The Ngorongoro Highlands, crossing the Massai Steppe, Lake Manyara, camping in the Serengeti National Park, Southern Serengeti Nyumba, camping in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area along the rim of the crater, visiting the Massai village as well as the Cultural Heritage Center, Arusha, Karatu, etc.

Thanks for viewing.
