In July I set out for a trip of a lifetime. In the back of my mind I've been planning a trip to East Africa for many years. In July, 2013, that dream came true. I set out for Nairobi on the 10th of July with a three-day stop over in London. From there it was only an 8 hour flight to Nairobi where I was met by a representative from the Africa Adventure Company for the start of my three-week adventure into Tanzania and several of the famed wildlife parks there: Tarangire, Lake Manyara Eco-System, Ngorongoro and the Serengeti to witness the Great Migration of thousands of wildebeest and zebra crossing the Mara River into Kenya.
I also had the great opportunity to spend three days as a welcome respite from the grueling hours of game drives to visit the people, villages and homes of various tribes including the Masaii, Iraqw, Datoga and the Wahadzabi hunter-gatherer bushmen.
