This morning I woke to lions moaning, most likely they had just found breakfast and were enjoying their catch. Headed for the balloon launch site I was excited to see what animals would be around the corner as we left camp. Being back in Tarangire with all the animals is wonderful. The Zebra are starting to make their way back to the park and their offspring are right alongside of them. The wildebeest are scattered with the Zebra and the many herds of elephants are also finding their way home. After the flight we drove through an enormous group of Zebra. The younger ones gave us a little show and did a little playing around. I was able to capture this with my lens and as soon as the winds decide to blow the right way or I get into town for 3g connection (which ever comes first) I will be able to share the fun video with you.
When not working behind the computer I am out enjoying the wonders of this beautiful park. Game drives to check out wildlife returning to the swamp and watching the birds who show up at our bird bath is how I often spend my afternoons. I see beauty every where I look; the people who teach me much more than Kiswahili, the landscape, trees, birds and animals- even the bats are cute here!
Living in a national park meeting travelers from all around the globe I have learned very quickly what those on safari are looking for. A common comment from travelers is how they are thankful that they booked with a travel agent! There is a lot to coordinate for this amazing journey and you want to be sure you are booking with reputable suppliers that use reliable vehicles and have knowledgeable staff. It is also a smart idea to visit at a time of year that fulfills your dreams for your African Safari. Speaking to a specialist with first-hand knowledge is very helpful for you - the traveller! I leave you with the lions that are hanging around the Tarangire Sand River this week....kwa heri
