There’s a fire blazing in the middle of the Serengeti and you’re the first to spot it.
A mild breeze tumbles through an alley just wide enough for you to walk through, and the air wafts of strong, freshly brewed coffee. You’re so enthralled by Stone Town’s commotion when you arrived that you forgot to thank the driver who dropped you off in the middle of it all.
How do you know when you’ve truly experienced a place?
“The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there.” – Vince Lombardi
Close your eyes for a moment and listen. Listen for that rumble, a groundswell of two million wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles encircling you at this very moment. What you’re hearing is the Great Migration, the largest movement of terrestrial creatures on the planet, a number exceeding the population of Barcelona. Add 70,000 buffalo, 7,000 elephants, 3,000 lions, tons of hippopotami and innumerable other species, and you begin to scratch the surface of the world you step into when entering Serengeti National Park.
