trip report: Tanzania & Zanzibar (28/6 to 14/7)

Jump to last reply

Hi all! I'm back! Back where I don't belong. (read; I wish I could have stayed over there)

Had a great trip. 10 day safari (Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro, Empakai, Serengeti) and 5 days on Zanzibar.

Many thanks to Bwana Mitch, Andy Biggs, Johan_Belgium and others for the great tips!

And a special thanks to the person (forgot the name) who told me to look for an authentic boma instead of one of those tourist traps! (you'll read all about it later on)

I cannot believe all that happened to us. Not only the boma visit. We had a jackall scratching at the side of our tent, and a hyena 50 meters from that same tent. We saw (at least part of) the migration at night. And we saw a leopard 20 meters from where people were standing outside their vehicles (no, I will not say where that was just yet, it's a suprise). And our photo group is now the proud owner of a lenscap with teethmarks of a lionesse in Ngorongoro!

I started a trip report on Aardvark (well, after all I am a mod on the Africa forum there so I hope the crew here don't mind putting it there). So come on over if you'd like to read:

I only wrote about day 1 so far, as I still need to process all of my pics (7500 in total). So stay tuned for more.

Ciao!

J.
