We heard from IMG senior guide Emily Johnston over in Africa earlier. They just finished their second day of the safari on the Serengeti. It went something like this. Wake up in your luxurious ‘tent’ to see the sun rising over the Serengeti. (I use the term ‘tent’ loosely here as these tents have full beds and bathrooms.) Enjoy an incredible buffet breakfast before hopping in the Land Rovers to go spot some wildlife. About the time the wildlife is getting ready for their afternoon nap, head back to camp for a delicious hot lunch and a little nap of your own. Then, head back out in the afternoon to watch the wildlife stir back to life as the temps cool off. Cap it all off with a fabulous dinner and swap stories around the campfire while enjoying your Serengeti Beer. Finally, fall asleep to the sound of zebras snorting outside your tent. I’m not making this up, this is a very typical day on the Serengeti! Kind of hard to beat a day like this one. Tomorrow the team will head over to the Ngorongoro Crater for more incredible game viewing. This is one of the highlights of the safari for me. You are probably picking up by now that this whole safari-thing is a real workout… for the eyes that is! I can’t think of a better way to finish off the incredible experience they had on Kili than several days looking at elephants on the Serengeti. Just doesn’t get much more fun that this trip!
