“We counted over 70 individual lions on this trip! They were spectacular and beyond.” - Debbie

Ngorongoro, Serengeti Tanzania - absolutely loved it!

I had been wanting to visit East Africa as long as I could remember - since the days of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom!
I spent countless hours and several years online looking at hundreds of photography safaris and then I found William Cowger right in my own back yard! And what a find he was. I want to be him when I grow up! I attended a presentation that he hosted and I was immediately sold. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional and extremely personable. He makes everyone feel like they are the most important person on the trip.
The itinerary was exactly what I had been looking for and I was not disappointed. The accommodations are top notch and my favorite by far was the Ndutu Safari Lodge. Right in the middle of all kinds of wildlife - giraffes meandering through the front yard & nibbling on the acacias at sunset; a pride of lions strolling past our cabins midday; lovebirds by the dozens playing in the birdbath; fire side cocktail each evening. And then there was the tent camp in the Serengeti - I had not imagined such a set up before - wrought iron queen bed with night stands & lamps, a covered porch area with carpet & chair to sit & enjoy your view for a few, private shower & bathroom. The best part about the tent camp is the night sounds; don't get me wrong, the food & service are phenomenal! But the night sounds are something you can only experience when you are there - they can't be replicated and they are indescribable. I did a video recording on my camera with the cap on, so I could just capture sound... it is pretty cool to listen to. Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge was another great place we stayed - the dining room ceiling soars to majestic heights, the food buffet was sumptuous and the pool was clear & sparkling blue. The view over the crater and the sunset from the lodges's terrace on the crater rim was beyond spectacular.
The photography opportunities abounded on this trip and I came home with some fabulous photos and memories. The vehicles we used had plenty of room for our photography equipment and us too - everybody had their own row. They also had a little refrigerator & electrical outlets to charge our toys! Simply said, this trip was wonderful.
And I will go with Bill again some day.
