Well thanks a lot for your nice comments , you are all too kind !!!     Day 2:   We were lucky we had a private guide and vehicle for the first 2 days so we decided it was going to be an early m

Thank you all !!   I have reviewed the photos of the fourth day (945) to choose 10 and I find it hard to follow the story with just 10 , so I'll upload 20 , I hope not to bore people too much.

Stunning @@africawild, simply stunning - I'm so glad you abandoned your "rule of ten", if you hadn't I don't know how you could have just selected 10 from this last set of images!

@Paco congratulations on your 25th anniversary.Your photos are equally good as any professionals and I'm not exaggerating. I'm amazed that I've only been to the Serengeti once and I can't wait to return.

Great presentation of the b&w set; "Harmonic Chaos" is especially well-titled.

I love those B&Ws, one of my favourite ST posts for sure!

A superb collection of B&W pictures to finish with - I agree that Harmonic Chaos is particularly striking in B&W - but it is also interesting how dramatic the skies look in the landscapes in B&W.

Thank you AP,

 

This is what i understood;

 

There are 10 "usual" crossing points , name from 1 to 10 .

This is getting to be an overload of 10s!

 

Beautiful B&Ws to close the report. And thanks for the beer.

Excellent report. We are going to be staying 3 nights at Namiri Plains in September 2017. From what I have read here and elsewhere we have decided to hire Asilia private guide/vehicle instead of shared vehicle for 2 of our days. This will be our third trip to Africa and the second to Tanzania. Can you recomend your top 2 guides to ask for and what they are like.

I appreciate anyone's thoughts.

Thanks

Thank you Rjwafrica , i am sure you will have a great time in Namiri at this time of year !!

 

I think that if you want a guide that will go the extra mile to try to get a nice sight , then Patena is the one. He may not be the funniest guide but his skills are amazing and his knowledge of the area is fantastic!!

 

If you visit northern Serengeti with Asilia then Kivuyo is also a nice guide, he has great eye for leopards and crossings!!

Thank you for sharing your pictures and your experience. I'll be going on my first safari in February and your report has helped to make me even more excited for it than I already was.

Thanks Paco @@africawild for an amazing trip report, how I've missed it for the last six months I don't understand but have thoroughly enjoyed catching up. The photography is outstanding both technically and in the subject matter, the last post of B&W images are wonderful and the processing top draw. Thank you once again.
