I visited Tanzania during The Great Migration. It was a wondrous sight to be hold! Witnessing the migration of thousands of wildebeests, zebras, and birds as they traverse the Serengeti is a “best of the best” travel experience of a lifetime.
During my photo journey, I encountered many amazing and wondrous animals! I met deep and prevailing peoples. I experienced animals and nature in their splendid glory of being fully alive, enjoying the vast and varied terrain upon which they live.
Here are some of the animals, people and places I visited on safari in Africa. I encourage you to make the trek to Tanzania. It’s worth it!
I saw this lion sleeping on a rock next to his majestic brother. He was resting so deeply.
Two elephants caress with their trunks in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania, Africa. While witnessing The Great Migration is a sign to behold, visiting Tarangire National Park was my favorite experience on safari in Africa. It is a wonderland of elephants. We spent three days watching, enjoying, and photographing hundreds of elephants – who all went about their daily lives as if we were not there.
I stayed in a treehouse safari tent and enjoyed writing in my tent while I was there.
Tanzania is home to colorful birds.
This cheetah stared at a zebra in the distance for an hour. She did not run after it (which was okay with me because I had actually prayed I would not see an animal get killed and God answered my prayer the entire safari!)
The Masai people are noble and fierce. They are warriors who guard their people and livestock and protect them from lions and other predators.
The Masai can jump very high. They can make fires by hand.
Masai women make beautiful, intricate necklaces.
Safari Picnics are memorable on the Serengeti!
My stay at Kitela Lodge was magical!
No safari experience is complete until you’ve ridden over the Serengeti in a hot air balloon.
