As part of our New Years Day, my wife and I started planning our travel for the year, when we were free at the same time, how many vacation days I could spend, etc. At nearly the same time, we had both gotten emails from KLM about great air fares to Eastern Africa. After some phone calls and exploring of different packages, it was settled: we would be going to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. My goal: a photographic Safari. The first stop was Namiri Plains, a Asilia Africa camp in the eastern Serengeti.
