My Humanitarian Journey and Safari With "The Giving Lens" to Tanzania, Africa
In late July of 2013 I traveled to Tanzania with a group called "The Giving Lens". This group was founded by Colby Brown who was the lead photographer for National Geographic for four years. We visited schools, an orphanage, families affected by AIDS and went on a three day safari in the Serengeti National Park and Ngorogoro Crater. This trip would be classed as "adventure travel". During the ten days I was there we stayed in three different areas of Tanzania including Moshi, Karatu, and Robunda. I have many public albums with hundreds of photos on my Facebook page in case you want to see more.
Participants had the option of sleeping overnight in a boma in Masailand like this one:
This was one of two group trips that I have been on in the past year or ever for that matter. I decided to write this post so the post I will be writing later this week might make more sense. With the growing popularity of group travel, I think it's very, very important to choose the right trip and know what questions to ask before committing to one of these trips. Here is a brief synopsis of the 10 day trip I went on eight months and nine trips ago.
Visiting Children in the Schools
I took this photo of Colby Brown and I was honored that he used this photo in an article he wrote on his blog A Road Less Traveled:
My photo is at the very end :)
The kids loved my sunglasses at the schools we visited:

I will leave you with a beautiful aerial view of Mount Kilomanjaro, which is the closest I got to the summit, as I was leaving Tanzania:
