4-day Safari, Maaike and Rogier

30-10-2011

"At the end of September we started our 4 day's safari with guide and driver Ben and the cook. We started at Lake Manyara. This was a great start of our safari. We saw a lot of small and big animals. The next day we drove to the Serengeti National Park and had a great lunch while enjoying an incredible view over the parkl.

Elephants visiting our campsiteWe requested Ben to search for non-touristic places . We didn't want to search for animals together with other jeeps. Ben respected our wish, so during the entire safari we followed an alternative route. During the safari we saw 3 female lions toghether with 4 cubs without eight other jeeps standing next to us!Here we stayed at the campsite where we found a couple of buffaloos behind our tent!

The next day we got up really early in the morning to see the sunrise over the Serengeti. This was beautiful! All the animals were really active! Our campsite with incredible view over the Crater was visited by several elephants who came to have a drink!

In the crater we saw the last animal of the big 5. Two Rhino's.

Ben is a professional, friendly driver and guide who seems to have a passion for nature and wildlife. Compared to some other drivers we encountered, Ben respects the animals in their habitat!

So if you'r going to Moshi and you're looking for a fun and professional safari experience, go and and have drink with Ben and Marion from Caracal Safaris!!"
