The Serengeti and Lake Natron – VirtualWayfarer

[ad_1]

When I booked my initial trip to Tanzania and lined up my 9 day safari by way of Tarangire, Lake Natron, the Serengeti and Ngornogoro Crater I justified splurging a bit, the length of the trip, and the price, by telling myself it was the trip of a decade. The mental math was clear – I’d have an outstanding 9 days of safari, but would return obtaining sated my need to have for a stick to up for the foreseeable future. As it turns out, I could not have been extra incorrect.  As I create this post, I’m currently dreaming of returning for a stick to-up trip. Just about every new photo I edit from the trip leaves me dreaming of the outstanding days I spent in nature, amongst some of the world’s most lovely, potent and deadly animals.

In my preceding post covering the Serengeti I shared with you all of my major-cat photographs. Ordinarily, I’d incorporate these into 1 single photo post. But, the sheer quantity of cat sightings I had created that not possible. Far as well usually, the rest of the Serengeti’s animals and all-natural beauty gets overshadowed by the alpha predators. So, I’ve decided to do this stick to up post which excludes all major cat shots and only focuses on the rest of the expertise. All photos had been shot on a Canon 6D and most made use of a $200 lens (complete particulars right here).

If you are thinking about a safari, I’d hugely recommend thinking about Tanzania and the Serengeti/Ngorongoro Crater park in specific. I’d also recommend the group at Fed Tours and Safaris who I partnered with for this trip.  They’re a Tanzanian owned and operated firm run by two brothers and they supplied me with an certainly spectacular safari expertise. As portion of our collaboration, I received a discounted price in exchange for sharing my unfiltered/completely independent expertise with them. If you are thinking about Tanzania,  I do encourage you to analysis Fed Safaris and mention you have study about them right here on VirtualWayfarer. They’ll make positive to take added very good care of you.
