Oh my, where to start?! Let me start off by saying, our trip was a life-changing experience that is difficult to accurately convey in words and pictures, but I will try to convey even a small sentiment.
Highlight of our trip: It’s just a little past 6 AM and we’re driving through the northern Serengeti in our open SUV, the sun is starting to peek through the clouds, wind blowing through my hair, watching the 2 million wildebeests, zebras, elephants, giraffes walking by and going about their morning routine can only be described as an emotional experience. That same morning, we stumbled across 3 lionesses in an open field chasing each other, playing with a zebra tail. Yes, a zebra tail. But it wasn’t sad or grotesque by any means. These lionesses were so unbelievably happy, it was evident they were exactly where they were supposed to be doing what they were meant to be doing. There’s a certain profoundness with seeing that sense of purpose being fulfilled. And that’s the lesson Tanzania and Africa brought to me, grounded me on the significance of the simpler things in life.
