Up at dawn my last morning in Zanzibar to take advantage of the beach before catching an afternoon flight back to Arusha. Beautiful morning light, and the beach was all ours.
Stopping to buy some African apples from this cutie
My friendly spice farm tour guide, who, like most people asked, "Is Trump really that close to being President?" and yearns to come to America for a better life.
Caught a flight back to Arusha via Dar Es Salaam for a night with friends before beginning our 36 hour journey back home. Asante sana, Tanzania! You were amazing.

Ngorongoro Crater formed two to three million years ago, when a large volcano exploded and collapsed on itself. On day three of safari we drove into what is considered to be the seat of humanity.
Good morning from camp! Coming back later in the morning to pack up and go back out. Definitely heard growling during the night...
People of the Maasai tribe
Incredible morning light!
My money shot
We startled this elephant as much as he startled us leaving the crater!
View driving down - cool and dusty just after dawn
Approximately 25,000 large animals live in the crater, and in Africa, the big five game animals are the lion, elephant, cape buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros. We saw them all! The term was coined by big-game hunters and refers to the five most difficult animals in Africa to hunt on foot and the degree of danger involved, rather than their size.
