A Self-Drive Safari through Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro & The Serengeti

Miss Moss in Tanzania

wow where to begin with this post! i thought about maybe splitting it up into three sections, as our trip essentially covered Lake Manyara & the area around Karatu, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti National Park – but i am far too impatient to draw it all out over a few days. just not my style. so of course you are about to be bombarded with a whole lot of photos, information, and me waxing lyrical about how AMAZING IT ALL WAS.

A holiday in Tanzania

hello! right now I am sitting at the airport in Nairobi waiting to catch a connecting flight to Kiliminjaro. from there we are going on a week long self-driving safari holiday – visiting the legendary Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and the Serengeti National Park. we will be camping in the Serengeti, where there are no fences. *cue wide eyed emoji here*

my mom took this photo. she won a prize for it, too. she’s also one of those cool moms who has her own flickr account (better than mine!). she rocks. she doesn’t use photoshop at all (in fact, don’t think she knows how to use photoshop) – these are all straight out of camera shots. she only took up photography a few years back, and is super modest about her photos to boot.
