It’s Live! It’s Live! It’s Like Christmas!

Africa with Trip Tribe

You can book now! It can actually be a reality for both of us. A Serengeti safari is within our reach. I’m going. Has this always been your dream too? You should join me! 

From January 19th, 2014 until January 26th, 2014, I will participate in the experience of a lifetime at Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti, and Lake Manyara – with stunning destinations and a world-class outfitter.

We start in Arusha, Tanzania then visit Ngorongoro Crater and the 8,300 square kilometer Conservation Area — the world’s largest volcanic caldera and an extraordinary natural sanctuary for some of Africa’s densest populations of large mammals.  The crater itself is 260 square kilometers and is home to wildebeest, buffalo, zebra, lions, hyenas, jackals, and elephants, among other animals. Next is Lake Manyara with it’s nearly 400 species, including baboons and blue monkeys.

During the week, we will take game drives in the Serengeti National Park in custom designed 4x4s. Inside, we’ll explore the remarkable ecosystem around the Serengeti Wilderness Camp within the 15,000 square kilometers of Africa’s most famous game reserve.  Serengeti is renowned for its dense predator population and annual wildebeest migration, yet also contains zebra, gazelle, impala, giraffe, warthogs, and other species.

We conclude with a full-day game drive in the Serengeti and overnight at the Wilderness camp before returning to Arusha.  The entire trip is The Trip Tribe-style — an amazing group of active, adventurers having the time of our life — in the expert hands of premier safari outfitter Extraordinary Journeys Africa.

I can’t count how many times readers have said, “I live vicariously through you” or “I’d love to do that” or “That is my number one bucket list item”. You too can make it happen. There are only fourteen spots available on the The Trip Tribe safari with me. Join me; bucket lists are meant to be crossed-off. Our life will be better than the movie!

  1. Please take lot of photos for me. I can’t travel any more, due to MS, but love to see the photos other people take of places they visit. I guess I live vicariously thru them. Since I’m confined to a power chair to go out, it is not possible for me to keep up with you, so I just want to see your trip thru your pictures. They are fab.


  2. OMG OMG OMG!! I would love to go but unfortunately I can’t right now. Still waiting on the call for a heart for the hubbies but have a great time and I want PICTURES!


  3. I wish I could go. But then again, I’m blogging to finance a trip through South Africa and I planned a Safari in Madikwe, which is said to be awesome. I’m very curious how yours will turn out, looking forward to seeing the pictures. If my project turns out to be a success, I’ll take some great pictures myself and then I’ll compare them to yours and see if I’ll have reached your ‘bucket list’ level of awesomeness! 🙂


  4. My in-laws did a trip like this 14 years ago. While they enjoyed it a lot, the riding around in the trucks was quite rough at times, their group was senior citizens, and several of them were hurt from the bumps that the trucks hit on the roads-back, shoulder, knee injuries-so be prepared to hang on tight on those drives!!

  6. Whoa! Sound incredible Lesley! I loved Africa, and can imagine it will be pretty incredible with you! Very temptings, but I have to find time for my trip to India with my son (spring break) and a trip to FIJI!!! So, another trip to Arica, alas, may have to wait… But boy, is it tempting. 😉


  7. Sounds like a fabulous trip! An African safari was our dream trip too for many years – we finally visited just a couple of months ago (though we headed to South Africa, then Zambia, on safari). Our travel articles are just being published now – you can see one here: We’ll look forward to reading your Kenya stories after you’ve visited!

  9. This is great and I’m so excited for you! I’m actually going to safari in East Africa in November for 3 weeks so it will be interesting to see what you think of it with my own experience relatively fresh in my mind. I look forward to reading about your future adventure(s) there!


  10. Beautiful! I’m from Tanzania so I have to say Karibu Sana! You are inspiring…almost overwhelmingly so, but in a really awesome, positive, slap-in-your-face (Wake up!) way! Thank you SO much for sharing. I mean, for taking the time to share your journey in life!! I will add my trip to Ngorongoro Crater too 🙂 I will check to see how the trip went!!
