The Best of Kenya and Tanzania

We spent three and a half weeks in Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, with side trips in Botswana, the Netherlands, and South Africa. The photos are broken down by location, except that most of the photographs of birds are in one group at the end.

We went with Overseas Adventure Travel ( and were very pleased with the trip. If you think you might like to take one of their trips, contact us and we can get you a discount.
