Kristina off to next?
October 12, I will be flying again on Delta Airlines
to Amsterdam for a quick connection with KLM to
Kilimanjaro airport in Tanzania. Here, I will join up
with Kamili Safaris, based in the UK for an
educational tour of the Mbali Mbali safari lodges in
have scheduled one full day prior to meeting up with
the group, to visit an orphanage where one of my
favorite guides, Robert with Ranger Safaris, was
raised before being adopted by Scottish missionaries.
Some generous people from a tour I escorted to East Africa,
have donated stuff for his kids that I will deliver in
person. That is the only way to make sure it gets
I would like to "adopt" his orphanage as my
special project and bring him needed supplies on every
trip. I will find out how much is needed to send his
kids to college and hopefully, with your help - a
certain amount of what you pay for a safari will go to
this - I can sponsor several kids. IMHO -
Education is everything.
I will visit Tarangire, The Serengeti, Katavi, Mahale
and Gombe Forest. Situated on the wild shores of Lake
Tanganyika, Gombe Stream National Park, located on the
western border of Tanzania and the Congo, is most
famous for Jane Goodall, the resident primatologist
who spent many years in its forests studying the
behavior of the endangered chimpanzees. This is
the 50th year anniversary of her work here.
On October 24, I
will fly from Dar es Salaam to Johannesburg and meet
We will then fly to Lusaka, the next day and begin our
safari with Jonathan
Scott and Phil Berry at Mfuwe Bushcamps and Lodge
in South Luangwa Zambezi National Park. We're hoping
to see Wonky Tusk lead her family through the lobby of
the lodge to eat the ripe mangoes inside the garden on
the other side.
Lot's more is planned for next year too, including my
escorting a group of family and friends to Fiji and
New Zealand in early February. The details are here: Kristina's
escorted trip to Fiji and New Zealand.
This trip trip is open only to their friends and family. I
can create a similar trip for you alone or escort your
