By David Chando with Marty and Louisa from New York
Once again this is David Chando reporting in from Arusha, Tanzania after having completed another successful safari. This time I had the privilege of guiding a safari for a couple from New York named Marty and Louisa. After the guests having spent two nights in Arusha to rest up from their international flight, I welcomed them to the Serengeti on July 2nd when they arrived at the Mara River airstrip in the upper northern reaches of the Serengeti.
My guests and I very much enjoyed our time together. The safari was short but sweet so to speak. We spent a total of 6 nights in the bush with 2 nights at Buffalo Luxury Camp in the North Serengeti, 2 nights at the Four Seasons Bilila Lodge in the Central Serengeti and 2 nights in the Ngorongoro Crater area with 1 night at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge and 1 night at Plantation Lodge.
There were many memorable wildlife viewing highlights but a few that come to mind were watching the wildebeest cross the Mara River (my first viewing for this season), a female lion with a gazelle kill, a large group of hippos at Retina Pool and a close encounter with a bull elephant in Lake Manyara National Park.
