The Quiet Majesty of Dawn in the Serengeti

Written by Thomson Safaris

There’s no denying it – a Tanzanian safari is a trip of a lifetime.

Our guests tell us Tanzania is like no other place they’ve visited, and we couldn’t agree more! Here in the Boston office, we consider ourselves very lucky to be able to go to Tanzania from time to time…and, no – it never gets old. In fact, we find ourselves longing to return between visits.

“I miss the sweet Jambo, Jambo in the morning. I miss the soups made by scratch by our amazing camp chefs! I miss the quiet moments in the Land Rovers listening and watching as hundreds of elephants pass by just yards away,” shared Thomson Staffer, Evan.

We fell in love with the following video, which captures a little bit of the magic of waking up in the Tanzanian wilderness. Listen carefully as the bird calls increase, and let yourself imagine the other natural wonders that are in store! It was filmed at one of the Serengeti Nyumba camps at dawn by our friend and seventeen-time past guest, Michael Ellis.  Of course nothing compares with being there, but we thought you might enjoy it!

Sometimes it’s these quiet moments that stay with you for a lifetime.
