My first experience of East Africa was in 1979, and it changed my life profoundly. The wildlife and people of Kenya and Tanzania have become “family” to me–not replacing kinship but adding to it. After the tremendous success of the June 2015 safari, I have set up two exciting and very different safaris in order to renew my connections there and give others the chance to experience the very best that an African safari can offer.
The next safari takes us off the beaten path using small planes to get us to wilderness parks few people are even aware of: Selous, Ruaha, Katavi, Mahale. Here are details: Tanzania WILD: Explore the Exceptional (July 25-August 8, 2016).
The next will be in January-February 2017 when we can expect the Great Migration to be in the shortgrass plains of the southern Serengeti. It also coincides with green landscapes, wildflowers, and tremendous bird populations as winged visitors for Europe and Asia join the African residents. I hope you can join us! Tanzania Herds & Birds, Nature & Culture (January 25-Feb. 6, 2017).
A few months ago, I gave a presentation at Prescott College, and they video-taped it so that if you were not there, you can now, through the wonders of technology, experience that presentation and vicariously go on safari.
