Around the World: Tanzania (Serengeti)


This was my favorite part of the trip – by far. We flew into Kilimanjaro airport on our jet and then took smaller (18-person) prop planes to the heart of the Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti Plain is incredibly expansive and beautiful, and the diversity of life that it supports is staggering. Within a few hours after arriving, I had already seen monkeys, elephants, giraffe, hyenas, and antelope. The next day, we saw lions, cheetah, impala, baboons, ostriches, vultures, cranes, buffalo, hippos, leopard, zebras, wildebeests, and a wide variety of beautify birds. Our “hotel” was within the park and was designed to look like a series of traditional thatched huts. I definitely want to return to this area!
