In Our Traveler's Words

“Seeing a leopard in a tree, an elephant matriarch leading her herd, wild dogs feeding their pups, or lions enjoying family time gives us a glimpse of what the Garden of Eden was like.” – Shirely Sanderson & Bob Sanderson

Bushtracks Expeditions travelers Shirley and Bob booked their first safari – a group trip up the Great Rift Valley in a DC-3 after talking with David Tett, Founder of Bushtracks Expeditions, about Africa at a UC Berkeley Alumni travel reception in 1999. Thirteen safaris later, they say they intend to keep going on safaris forever!

The Sandersons have traveled on several Bushtracks cultural trips to Africa and India, including North Africa and the Great Sahara and Casablanca to the Cape. Bushtracks has taken them to Timbuktu three times and arranged a sunset photo shoot of the pyramids at Meroe, Sudan, so we’re so glad to have been a part of their “go while we can” travel strategy.
