Tanzania/Seychelles trip report

Jump to last reply

As one who is always up for tipping the odds in my favor - I chose to do exactly what I was told not to do, after recieving negative and misplaced advise from the naysayers who advised that I stay put and disregard any thoughts of going to Africa after my diagnosis and all that followed.

Well, I'm back and intact and feeling quite healthy, healed and feeling very satisfied from taking what has to be the best trip of a lifetime for myself and husband Mike.

With a few last minute adjustments, here's what our itinerary ended up looking like.

Feb. 10, 2006
Boston - Amsterdam - Arusha

Feb.11
New Arusha Hotel

Feb.12
Depart for Private safari, Tarangire -
Day and night drives. Hiking and visiting Maasai.
Kikoti Safari Camp


Feb.14
Day drive
Kifaru Lodge

Feb.15
Lake Eyasi
Hunting with Hadzabe bushmen. Hiking and visiting Datoga,Barabaig and Watindiga tribes.
Kisima Ngeda Camp

Feb.17
Ngorongoro Crater
Day Drives in Crater
Ng. Sopa Lodge


Feb. 19
Serengeti
Early morning and late afternoon drives
Mobile Camping

Feb.22

Fly Serengeti - Kili - Wilson
Karen Blixen Cottages - Karen, Nairobi

Feb.23

Nairobi - Dubai - Seychelles diversion

Feb.24
Mahe, Seychelles
La Meridien Barbaros

Feb. 25
dreamyacht catamaran - Seychelle Islands

March 3
Mahe, Seychelles
La Meridien Barbaros

March 5
Nairobi - 8 hour layover - good shopping and Carnivore
Amsterdam - 8 hour layover - hung out in airport - too whimpy to go out in snow and cold

March 6
Boston - home to dog and kitty hugs.

We ended up shooting 6.5 gigs and could have done more due to shooting some, hopefully well done videos. Shouldn't have been too cheap for the Epson purchase - get one if going. We saw an amazing amount of sights of beautiful people, animals, birds and terrain. We saw an incredible amount of cats and the big 5 including a very up close sighting of a rhino - wahoo - in the Crater - 10 feet away.

As soon as I can find my misplaced brain cells, I'll write up a more detailed report and bore you all to tears.

Til then;
Sherry
