Tanzania Safari Day 11: West Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Sunday, 24 May 2009 08:05 by webmaster

Bill is now in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania for the fifth stop of his 2009 Tanzania Safari. Click below to see the other stops on the 2009 Tanzania Safari.

Bill is currently staying at Ndarakwai Ranch in West Kilimanjaro. Ndarakwai ranch is a privately owned permanent tented camp to the west of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Guided walks, horseback safaris, and game drives are all available at Ndarakwai Ranch which prides as a prime ecotourism location. I'm anxious to learn a lot more about Ndarawkwai Ranch upon Bill's return.

For more information about the Ranch, you can view the offical website.

Tanzania Safari Days 8,9, and 10: Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Wednesday, 20 May 2009 08:11 by webmaster

Bill is now in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania for the fifth stop of his 2009 Tanzania Safari. Click below to see the other stops on the 2009 Tanzania Safari.

Bill is now in the legendary Serengeti National Park. Serengeti National Park boasts over 90,000 visitors each year and contains all of the Big Five - Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Cape Buffalo and Rhinos.

The Great Migration is what the park is most known for. Nearly two million wildebeest and zebras follow an approximately clockwise path of migration following the historical rains - and therefore the best feeding areas each year. This migration is largely in and around Serengeti National Park. A map of the migration is shown to the right along with information about where you can find the vast zebra and wildebeest herds during the year. The pins on the map are interactive, so click on them to get the seasonal information, and you may also zoom in and zoom out to get more details.

Tanzania Safari Days 6 and 7: Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania

Monday, 18 May 2009 09:07 by webmaster

Even More Chimps at Gombe Stream National Park

Bill is now in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania for the fourth stop of his 2009 Tanzania Safari. Click below to see the other stops on the 2009 Tanzania Safari.

Bill is now in the middle of his safari and will be staying for two days in Gombe Stream National Park - which is known mostly for some great chimpanzee trekking. The park is actually where Jane Goodall conducted her groundbreaking chimpanzee research. Gombe Stream is the smallest of Tanzania's National Parks - only about 20 square miles in size. Wildlife viewing - at least mammals - mostly consists of abundant populations of primates.

This should be a really special segment of the trip for Bill - to be at Gombe Stream - where Jane Goodall conducted her research. For more information about Gombe Stream, - see the official Gombe Stream National Park Website

Tanzania Safari Days 4 and 5: Mahale Mountains National Park, Tanzania

Saturday, 16 May 2009 09:45 by webmaster

BRING ON THE CHIMPS!!

Bill is now in Mahale National Park in Tanzania for the third stop of his 2009 Tanzania Safari. Click below to see the other stops on the 2009 Tanzania Safari.

Mahale National Park (Mahale Mountains National Park)

For today and tomorrow, Bill will be staying at the Kungwe Beach Lodge in Mahale National Park, Tanzania. From his last time in Mahale National Park in February, 2008, we have an amazing, detailed account of his Chimpanzee Encounters. From this accounting of his last trip, you'll learn a lot about Mahale National Park and the wild chimpanzees who reside there, including:

  • Bill's Most Amazing Close-up Wildlife Encounter Ever
  • Chimpanzee Politics - Lots of Political Manuevering Within the Group
  • Rules For Chimp Viewing (small groups, masks)
  • How Close Do You Get to the Chimpanzees? (Hint: many don't seem to have a comfort zone)
  • How to Best Prepare for The Jungle Environment (for photos, and eyeglass wearers)
  • Other Primates You Can Expect to See in Mahale

I'm really looking forward to hearing his stories from this portion of the safari trip. For more information about Mahale - see the official Mahale Mountains National Park Website
