2017 Family Safari Recap

In June 2017 Bushtracks welcomed 37 guests to East Africa on two departures of the Tanzania Family Safari. Take a look at the pictures shared by the travelers, and you'll see that a good time was had by all ages: from grandparents to grandchildren, and everyone in between. You'll also see that the friendships formed with the people they met along the way were as meaningful as the many wildlife sightings they enjoyed in the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater.

Serengeti North & West, Tanzania

Exploring Stiegler's Gorge located on the Rufiji River where a bush breakfast was waiting. With all the time you spend riding in a vehicle on safari, it feels good to get out and scramble on boulders. Our Family Safari let some of us be active, and others relax!
