Photo Essay: The Captivating Landscape Of Tarangire.

Our Coastal Air flight from Kigali into the Manyara airstrip on a twelve seater Cessna, was not half as turbulent, or terrifying, as I had envisaged.

George, our safari guide/driver from The Wild Source, was waiting to transport us to the first of four parks on our Northern Tanzanian safari circuit. The drive to the Nomad Kuro camp in Tarangire national park took much longer than the estimated two (plus) hours, with our gushing over every sighting of wildlife along the way, despite George’s gentle reminders that we would be seeing plenty more of the same in the coming days.

We did. Especially the elephants this park is renowned for. But it was the landscape – a mix of dry woodland and wide open Savannah studded with sculptural baobabs and umbrella acacias – that we found most enthralling.

We had long days planned, from sunrise to sunset. And we were surprised by how much our enjoyment of our quiet picnic breakfasts and lunches scheduled around the natural rhythm of the Silala swamp, matched that of our wild cat sightings.

Happy travels… matter where life takes you.
