I am blessed beyond words to have so many amazing guests join my safaris.  Case in point:   Williams’ Family Safari, March 2020.    Wanting to do a safari to celebrate her milestone birthday, Kit invited her sister and her mom and dad to join her in Tanzania.   Luckily, they all leaned in and agreed to join her […]

Off Roading

Safari Day 4: On our safari this morning we went “off roading.”  Apparently, that’s allowed in the Ndutu area, but not the actual Serengeti National Park, so we took full advantage of it.  We wound up stopping behind a solitary safari vehicle that had spotted three cheetahs in the tall grass.  We called them the […]
