Like minded individuals...

Adventure in Tanzania 2013! Part 1

It has been two weeks now since my return from Tanzania and I am still processing  all that I saw, felt, touched and yes smelled. I took 15,964 photos while on safari this time and it will take me some time to go through all of them to organize and revisit the memories of the actual events. Such great moments from seeing hippos in Silale swamp, apparently this is the first time in 13 years, to a great big bull elephant , that we got extremely close to and our surprise visit to Ngorongoro Crater.

Hippo in Silale swamp, Tarangire NP, Tanzania

I had the privilege of spending 13 days in Tanzania with eight world class artists and what a great time it was to spend every moment with like minded individuals. We were up every morning at 5:00am, in the Land Cruisers at 5:45 and at the park gate promptly at 6:00 am when they opened. From there we went ALL day most of the time note returning back to camp until after dark. It was not uncommon for us to eat breakfast, bush breakfast in a box, at 10-11:00 am and our lunch around 3:00pm which was also a bush meal. We would have to be out of the park promptly at 6pm each evening and let me tell you we pushed it to the very last minute, driving as fast as we could because we didn’t want to leave that particular animal with the brilliant lighting until we had too. We would get out the gate just in time and then because the camp was another half an hour through the bush we would continue to squeeze out every last minute of sunlight that we could. Some of us would even continue long after the lighting turned well….. not usable for reference. “Hapana jua” - No Sun

The other artists and I were in all invited to participate in this trip by African Wildlife Trust and it’s founder Pratik Patel. We are all AWT Artist Ambassadors working to help AWT in it’s mission to help protect and bring awareness to the ever growing problem of Elephant poaching in Tanzania as well as the welfare of other African wildlife. Each of the artists will be creating an original piece inspired from this trip that will be given to AWT and then auctioned off with all of the proceeds from the auction going directly to AWT and the African Elephant! Below is the list of the the AWT Artist Ambassadors from this amazing adventure in Tanzania!
