Sharmila R witnessed the herds gathered in the Mara River, at the northeast corner of the Mara Triangle! When they finally crossed, only one wildebeest was lost to a lion – a small price for the survival of thousands of other wildebeest.

Carolyn Swan safari journey took her through Manyara National Park, North and Central Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area as well as Tarangire National Park.

The tented camps/lodges in the Serengeti National Park and Tarangire National Park were a perfect balance of comfort and value. She encountered two Cape buffalo visit duringher stay in theMbugani Migration Camp. Other nights, they heard roars of lions and laughing hyenas outside their tent! It felt unreal to be in the bush with one of the Big Five wildlife in Africa.

Carolyn’s highlight was seeing the Great Wildebeest Migration, a lioness wildebeest hunt in the Ngorongoro Crater, meeting Maasai boys dressed in black with their paintedfaces after being circumcised by elders and most of all sharing this journey with her best friends.
