Todays flight was a beautiful flight like all flights but the one thing that really made it extra special was seeing the largest herd of Cape Buffalo I’ve seen so far in East Africa. The sound of hundreds of buffalos running through the grass is a wonderful sound at 6:45am. When I first noticed the large herd to the west I did a double take as I thought it was perhaps just a thick section of trees but as we lowered down and rode the winds I quickly confirmed it was a very large herd of Cape Buffalo - it was an amazing sight! Shortly after the herd of buffalo we spotted four lions lounging by the river.
On the way to the breakfast in the bush we spotted many animals, elephants, zebras, many colorful birds and this beautiful Waterbuck - he was standing picture perfect for us.
Each day I learn more and more about beautiful East Africa and the way of life and cultures. I would like to thank my mother, Margo Strowbridge for being the first to start a donation fund for those in need in Tanzania. This has inspired me to learn of more opportunities and ways to help support those who are less fortunate then me.
