East African Safari June 21-25, 2011
After a highly successful and emotional climb of Kilimanjaro the team then ventured off on a game viewing safari. We offer safari’s as part of a package with our Kilimanjaro climbs. They are always fun and they never disappoint. Since animal behavior is never completely predictable it is always a treat to watch the days unfold. The only thing we know is that we will get to view some of the most legendary wildlife on our planet. We visited Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti, and Olduvai Gorge. We also visited a Masai Village. Below are a few pictures highlighting some of our animal sightings. The entire photo gallery can be found here:

There are over 1100 bird species in East Africa. We see many on safari. Here are a few of them:
Grey Crowned Crane
Cory Bustard Bird. The largest flying bird in the world.
Black Rhino. The rhino population has been decimated by hunters and poachers. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the few places where they can still be seen. There are currently 26 living in the Ngorongoro Crater.
