Videos from the Serengeti

I added a few videos to my Serengeti post after I had already published it, so here they are in case you missed them. The wildebeest crossing is long, but the others are pretty short. Here’s a (loooong) video of the wildebeest crossing. And a video of the wildebeests after the crossing. A little lunchtime shotgunning throwdown caught on video. And a not so peaceful giraffe duel video.

Legendary Expeditions’ Mwiba Tented Lodge

Next up on our East African Adventure was a completely different landscape and experience. We would be staying at Legendary Expeditions’ Mwiba Tented Lodge which is located on a Wildlife Reserve. This meant we could enjoy our game viewing both on foot, walking among the more than thirty natural springs found on the reserve, and in open safari vehicles that are able to drive off-road to get up close to sightings. We took a walk to a game viewing blind overlooking a waterhole where the birdwatching was spectacular. The beauty of Mwiba – different than Serengeti National Park – is more […]

Our Serengeti adventure, filled with firsts

Our Serengeti safari was filled with many firsts. We saw an actual crossing (of the Mara River) of thousands of wildebeests and zebras, leopards mating the wild (twice in ten minutes – impressive!), twin leopard cubs, a male giraffe duel, and a crocodile attack on a wildebeest, among many others.I really did try to pare down our pictures, but it was such an amazing experience (and all in just 3 days), I just had to share many… A herd of Cape Buffalo – thought by many to be the most dangerous animal in Africa. This particular breed of male Ostrich […]

Legendary Expeditions’ Serengeti Camp

After a lovely stay at Legendary Lodge Arusha, we moved on to Legendary Expeditions’ Serengeti Camp for a photo safari and to see the great migration of wildebeest, zebras, various antelope and other animals.  A terrific moving map of the route of the great migration can be found here: http://www.expertafrica.com/tanzania/info/serengeti-wildebeest-migration.  The camp is set up in different areas throughout the year according to where the great  migration is expected to pass; it is the definition of luxury camping.   Trip created by our travel pros, Khashana Adventure Travel.

Legendary Lodge Arusha

We began our Khashana East African Adventure tour in Tanzania at Legendary Lodge in Arusha. One might be a bit unsettled when turning onto the road leading to Legendary Lodge in Arusha. The drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport to the turnoff takes about an hour, and is lined with bars, bars and more bars, with lots of Tanzanians hanging out, motorcycle ‘taxis’ everywhere, and occasional fires burning (it was evening). The highway through town was the only pavement we saw; dirt roads, dirt yards, and probably many dirt floors, lined the highway. To get to the Lodge, we did a 180 […]
