Genevieve’s Testimonial

I’ve asked the safari participants to contribute their thoughts, feelings, and reflections of the trip.  I will add them as they arrive in my inbox.  Here is one that was written, in part, on the trip:

Our safari so far has been absolutely amazing.  We’ve seen so many animals, many I never knew existed like bat-earred fox, dik, dik, and the secretary bird. We witnessed a wildbeest giving birth, stumbling upon it out in the wild. Very pure, sacred experience. We saw a lion and cheetahs stalking zebra and wildebeest.

The African safari experience has the ability to alter your perception of the world in a good way. Culturally, everything is so different yet English is spoken and US dollars are used making transition to the culture very easy. If you come with an open mind, you can leave with a new way of looking at the world.  Being among the wild animals and the native people is pure escapism.

Adding Pilates and/or Nia exercise to a Safari is ideal for people who want to continue their exercise practice while on vacation. What a great way to start the day before your game drives. Ujuzi African Travel has a high level of attention to detail so for travelers who care about that and want to be sure they’re taken care of, I highly recommend using Ujuzi African Travel to manage your African safari experience.

New Video

Greetings!  Most of the group is back in the United States with Nikki and Kristin returning from their extension to Zanzibar tomorrow (March 2nd).  The trip was really spectacular and I hope to post some testimonials from the rest of the group in the coming days.

I wanted to share some great video with our followers.  Here is a video of the Maasai courtship dance.  The higher the men can jump, the more worthy he is as a husband:


Here are children at the Maasai kindergarten singing us a song:


Here is a video of the wildebeest migration in the Ndutu area of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.  We were waiting on a female lion who was hiding in the tall grass to continue stalking.  Other guests at our lodge said they waited for hours with no success of watching a kill.  With such abundant animals, the lions must wait for their prey to practically fall in their lap!:


I did add two additional videos in a couple of the posts, as well as made some edits and added some more pictures to the other posts, so please peruse.  I also uploaded about 75 new pictures to the Flickr account, which you can access by clicking on the “Photos” on the top of the right column.
