Family Adventure and Maasai Experience

Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mnemba Island, Tanzania

Prior to joining Brad in Botswana, I completed a safari to Tanzania with a family of Bostonians. This trip touched on all the icons including Lake Natron, Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti, the Selous Game Reserve and the idyllic island of Mnemba off Zanzibar. It provided a wonderful mix of habitats, game and culture.

An undoubted highlight, amongst the many, was the Maasai experience in the Natron area. Here we visited a Maasai manyatta way off the beaten track. This experience is a far cry from the normal contrived encounter that the ordinary tourist undertakes. Another obvious highlight was the migration in the Serengeti. The luxury mobile camp was expertly situated amidst the central body of the migrating wildebeest.
