9 night Northern Tanzania Migration Safari
We had a fantastic trip and some of the most amazing experiences at all three safari camps. The time of year was perfect. Not too hot not too cold. The grass was long but the animals were all still there and available to see. May have had to search a little harder but we still saw everything and more.
We had the most amazing breakfast with two male lions at Ngorongoro, where I’m not sure if possibly we were on the menu rather than the breakfast boxes we had packed! They literally walked right past us as we stood enjoying our breakfast at the hippo lagoon. It was the scariest but most thrilling thing that I have ever experienced. I would not recommend that everyone gets in this situation, but we happened to find ourselves in this position where each of us were eyeing off how to get to the vehicle in the fastest most efficient way.
We saw chameleons, leopard, lions, cheetah, hyenas, gazelles, elephants, zebras, rhino, ostriches, eagles, vultures, hippos, wildebeest, cape buffalo, jackals, mongoose, flamingos, giraffes, hearts beasts, and the list goes on….
The accommodation was fantastic, the food amazing the staff very helpful and friendly. Our guide, Muba, was so educated and knowledgeable he was truly a blessing. Not only was he knowledgeable in relation to his country and the animals we saw but his knowledge of the parks and his knowledge of photography i.e. how to get the best light and positioned the vehicle to enable this was invaluable (He had been a guide for the discovery channel years prior). Muba was a late change and I count my lucky stars that we managed to get him as our guide.
