Field Sightings from Tanzania – November 2013
Mkenda was with the Chrysler Party and reported some incredible sights:
My clients were so eager to get pictures of the “big five” and had interest to see animals with large horns as well as looking forward to seeing a kill. Setting off with High expectations we began our safari adventure.
Highlights from our trip included a Lion Kill and we captured some exceptional pictures.
The experience exceeded expectations and Christie was in tears with a great a unique sighting from the Lion Kill. What an awesome moment that we were blessed to experience.
The next day our safari experience began as we drove to Tarangire where we saw three lions just after the gate. What a great sighting, we decided to take lunch and after lunch we went to Silalei swamp where we saw lots of elephants, a leopard on a tree and python curled up in a tree.
We departed from Tarangire and headed to Lake Manyara National park. We stayed at Tree lodge and we saw lots of baboon and flamingo enroute. The scenery was breath taking.
Our experience in the Ngorongoro crater was great! We were lucky with sightings as we just arrived we spotted two lionesses hunting and were so lucky to witness the kill unfold in front of us! Witnessing the whole drama unfold was spectacular and we managed to get great pictures.
On our first day we visited Arusha town and went around visiting key place and monuments as we made the town tour. We drove around different places, including markets, Uhuru torch monument, clock tower well known as the geographical centre of Africa, Later on we drove back to Mountain Village Lodge where they overnighted.
Gorge Mollel was with the Mason Party and reported:
We left Maromboi camp after breakfast and headed towards Lake Eyasi village. We got to Kisma ngeda for lunch, and the Mason Party had suggested that they want to buy a Goat for the Hazabe people, Our guide took us to the village and assisted us to buy a Goat and we headed to the Hadzabe people. We learnt all about their life style and this very interesting. The Goat was very much appreciated as it was enjoyed by all quickly put on the fire and roasted.
