On Safari – Day 1

Safari Day 1 – 17 Sep 2014

Weather: 70 F and cloudy
River Trees Country Inn

After collecting all of my clients last night from the airport, it was off the bed for some much needed sleep. Our morning came with all of the surprises, sights and sounds of Africa around our wonderful lodge, River Trees Country Inn. River Trees is my most favoriate lodging in all of Arusha, supurb service and outstanding food with a quaint setting along a running river make for a wonderful entry point into Tanzania. If you love pizza, they have one of two wood fired pizza ovens in all of Arusha, and man can they knock out some killer pizza. My last meal was a squash rosemary pizza with extra ham. Top this off with a Serengeti beer and it just does not get any better.

After our orientation briefing this morning, we are off the Gibbs Farm continuing onward to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater where we will photograph the Maasai people in their native setting. Following this photo setting we will move to our camp surrounded by flat top acacia trees. What a sight and a wonderful setting. What a wonderful setting of our first night on safari.

Tomorrow morning it is an early rise as we journey down to the carter floor for an entire day of photography.

Cheers and happy photoing.
