Thanks to bumped seats on a flight in Johannesburg in 2002 (we confirmed our return seats twice), my husband and I got a mileage voucher. The next year, we flew from Dubai to Kenya, then traveled to Tanzania by tour. We signed up for a no-frills safari-tenting tour. Oh, what a trip! We timed it for the return of the wildlife to the Serengeti. Our small tour group sat in a mini-van right in the middle of the zebras, wildebeests, etc. That was only one highlight of that trip…
Best Vistas of the World: Serengeti – Bing Travel: Serengeti
“The Maasai name for the Serengeti is “Serengit” — it translates to “endless plains” — and this section of Africa is so vast that it seems to dwarf the herds of 2 million wildebeest, gazelles and zebra that migrate twice annually in a giant circle, the largest mammal migration in the world. Covering 12,000 square miles, the Serengeti stretches from southwestern Kenya to northern Tanzania.”
