Trip Report Serengeti April Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Trip report: 14 day Safari, Tanzania (April 6th - 20th)

Outfitter: Proud African Safari
Guide: Adam (2nd time)
Been Before? 3rd time

Itinerary:
Arusha – Mountain Village Lodge (2 nights)
Central Serengeti – Mbuzi Mawe (3 nights)
Western Corridor- Mbalageti Tented Camp (3 nights)
Ndutu Woodlands – Lake Masek Tented Camp (2 Nights)
Ndutu Safari Lodge (2 nights)
Ngorongoro/Lake Manyara – Plantation Lodge(2 Nights)

Summary:
Our 3rd time in Tanzania, probably counts as the best so far. We always go during April as there are far fewer people around. The rainy season had not started which was a bit of a disappointment as the migration was scattered and it was very dusty. Overall we did not see many lions (except for the close encounter we had at Ndutu) but did see many cheetahs and leopards, more than ever before.

Notes:
On our last trip with another outfitter, Adam had been our guide and was excellent so two years later we wanted to have him as our guide again. After some inquiries with his previous employer we discovered that he had started his own company so we decided to go with him and I must say we were not disappointed at all. He maintains the high standards that we had received before with other outfitters and provided an outstanding safari.
