By Simon Sige with Jane and Larry
Warm greetings from our office in Arusha, Tanzania. This is ADS driver guide Simon Sige. I have some information to share with the ADS family including many photographs from my recent safari that I very much enjoyed. I had the pleasure of being the guide for Larry and Jane M. who are from Arizona.
We were on a 10-night safari from October 18, 2013 to October 28, 2013. We visited the 5 most popular areas for wildlife viewing during this time of year that is known as the dry season. We explored the North Serengeti (Mara River, Lamai, Wogakuria and Lobo Valley areas), the Loliondo Game Reserve surrounding Buffalo Camp, the Central Serengeti (Seronera Valley, Maasai Kopjes, Sametu, Makoma Plains, etc.), Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park (including the Tarangire River and Silale Swamp circuits).
These are photos I would like to share with you starting with the Northern Serengeti.
