We made it! After 2 years of planning and lots of airplane flights we are finally on safari.

Well, almost there. We still had another 45 minute small plane flight to get us to Lake Ndutu, our final destination for the first leg of our trip.

Speaking of small planes, do you have any idea of why the pilot puts thorn bushes around this tires?

The vastness of the Serengeti is apparent from this view at the visitors center

Upon arrival at our camp in Lake Ndutu in the Serengeti we were given an orientation by Peter. He has a lovely accent along with a great sense of humor and smile.

In this first short video he is telling my guests the shower is voice controlled at the Serengeti Explorer Camp. This means ask for it and the assistants will bring hot water.

In this next short video he tells my guests not to panic (breathe slowly) if they see wildlife around the tent. There is an armed ranger at night, and there is no record of any animal attacking a guest in the Serengeti.

Our park ranger on duty at night. That is an AK-47 he is holding.

In my prior Africa pages in the Wildlife Photography link I explain in detail where our camp is and why we go there. In this page we are going to enjoy my guests as they enjoy the area and grab some great shots of their own.

Practicing our photography prior to the trip made a difference

Ross (Mr Indiana) doing what he does best. This trip was a birthday present from his wife.

He gave a nice toast at the end of the trip.
