I hope you stumbled upon this post because you’re going on a safari! Or… thinking about going on one. Or dreaming about it. Or you’re kind-of obsessed with the idea of it, don’t feel it’s achievable right now, but want to start preparing for when the opportunity presents itself. Either way, I’m sure a safari game drive on your bucket list.
Personally, I’ve always dreamed of going on a safari trip, but it seemed so unachievable. They’re usually quite expensive, and being a Doctor of Physical Therapy with resultant student loans to support my doctorate endeavors, I didn’t think I could afford a trip to Africa at this stage in my life. Luckily, my wanderlust desires attracted the opportunity of a lifetime, and I journey to Tanzania with EduTours Africa (have you been reading my posts on my trip? I’ve been sharing a ton! Check ’em out – stop slacking!). A majority of this trip was a volunteer mission trip, but we got some safari play time.
Guess what? You can do the SAME thing! Being in untouched nature – wild and free – is indescribable. On our two-day safari through Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park, we simply drove under archways and entered a vast landscape dotted with wildlife. Yes, an archway. Not a gate. Not an electric fence. Not barbed wire. Unlike in other preservation areas, the wildlife we encountered were not tagged – they were entirely free to roam. I marveled at the animals with delight, sensing their satisfaction as they lived in peace – void of human (or, inhumane) influence.
