This week is dedicated to big cats and a coupe of weeks ago we encountered big cats at Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania. It was an amazing experience to watch these beautiful animals in their natural habitat. Tomorrow, Tuesday December 2nd is Giving Tuesday, in honor of the UN Foundations's efforts to promote a day of donating to worthy causes and issues that people are willing to make sacrifices for. Global Incite supports may worthy causes. It's Big Cat Week so we'll start with our wildlife conservation efforts. While supporting wildlife conservation we encountered the big cats within this post and other wildlife which made our November trip to Tanzania and Kenya an experience of a lifetime!
November 2014 - An introduction to Maasai culture. We will be posting additional information about the Maasai people and their rich culture on this blog, but who better to introduce you the culture than an elder Maasai man himself. He has given a short account in his own unique. I challenge you to translate!
We will be traveling back to Tanzania and Kenya January 2015. Visit our website for additional information.
Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) spans approximately 8300 sq km (3205 sq miles) and is made up of highland plains, savanna, savanna woodlands and forests. Here wildlife and the semi-nomadic Maasai coexist. It is home to the largest caldera in the world - the Ngorongoro Crater. NCA is home to an abundance of wildlife, including globally threatened species. The astounding annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, gazelles and other animals occurs in the northern plains.
This month I represented Global Incite while traveling throughout East Africa. I visited Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda! It was an amazing time to the point that I do not know where to start. I guess I will just let the pictures speak to my experience and exemplify the wonderful time that we will have when we visit East Africa in January and during the summer of 2015. Journey with us to East Africa!
