This Was The Moment I Realized What The Wild Really Looks Like


Tanzania Lions

After traveling more than 24 hours, I arrived yesterday at Sasakwa Airstrip in northern Tanzania, on the western corridor of the Serengeti, as part of a press trip to visit hotels and safari camps around the country.

My travel group was met by Simon, our Tanzanian tour guide, in an open-sided off-road vehicle. After a day's worth of travel, I expected to head straight to our lodge at Singita Grumeti Reserve's tent camp, Sabora.

Instead, I wound up on a three-hour game drive through a privately run reserve in the middle of the Great Migration, seeing more big game than most people see in a lifetime, including a close look at a lion eating a wildebeest. 

Matthew, our Coastal Airways pilot, took us from Arusha, Tanzania, to Sasakwa, in the center of Singita's Grumeti Reserve, a private 340,000 acre park.

Our 12-seat plane dropped us off at Sasakwa airstrip before heading to the Kenyan border.

Apart from the red dirt airstrip and a small tent, there was nothing but plains in every direction.
