2017 Family Safari Recap, or What I Did on My Summer Vacation

By Bushtracks Expeditions
April 15, 2020

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.
