Paul Oliver Safaris - With National Geographic and Global Adrenaline

With National Geographic and Global Adrenaline

December 2005, January 2006

the Migration I was invited by National Geographic Expeditions and Global Adrenaline (a Chicago Travel Agent) to lead a lodge based safari to the Parks of Northern Tanzania. The group would include 24 guests, a "Nat Geo" expert and an assistant expedition leader.

This is usually not my cup of tea but the chance to meet and work with Robert Caputo of National Geographic Expeditions was too good to pass up.

Robert Caputo Robert’s work in Africa goes back to the late seventies and his articles on the Nile, AIDS, Somalia, the Congo and the Swahili Coast are well respected. We discovered that we knew many of the same people that have worked here in East Africa and as his sense of humor was quite similar to mine, (perhaps not quite as twisted) we really enjoyed each others company.

With Meave Leakey at Olduvai The conditions were dry and we needed to travel to the beautiful Western corridor of the Serengeti to catch the migration.

At Olduvai Gorge we teamed up with Meave Leakey and she traveled with us to Ngorongoro. Meave’s work on the origins of hominids is world famous. Her evening lecture was fascinating.

Dhow at Zanzibar Our safari ended on Zanzibar and we stayed at the Serena Inn, which was a real treat.

Admiring a view Many thanks are due to the drivers and guides, the Lodge and Camp managers and staff, Sam Sikombe- my fellow expedition leader and in particular a whole hearted thank you to Iris and Andrea in Arusha and Nancy in Chicago for making this safari a real success and making my job a lot easier. This type of trip is an incredible amount of work to put together and Global Adrenaline did a wonderful job.

Maybe I will lead another one next year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL
