Who’s freezing?

Date: March 16, 2017 | By: bigfive | Category: Travel Blog

Oh wait, you might be. Sorry.

Storms are pummeling the US and Canada this week. Records seem to be falling as fast as the snow. The second-heaviest snowstorm in 117 years of records hit parts of the Northeast. As I send this to you, I am sitting in Calgary Alberta, where, you guessed it… it’s snowing. So the question I started asking is, when does Ice melt? If the surface temperatures ever warm back up to above 32°, the snow and ice will melt. But it’s hard to play catch up when the snow just keeps coming.

For those of you who simply cannot wait to bail out of your snow boots, consider our new Tanzania and Kenya safari adventure, which features a stay at the new Saruni Rhino Camp in a remote and  largely undiscovered area, where the main draw is the rhino.

After years of hard work and determined commitment by Sera community members and Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT), two years ago the Sera Community Conservancy became the home of the ‘Sera Rhino Sanctuary’. This is the first community conservancy in Africa to own and operate a sanctuary dedicated to the conservation of the near threatened black rhino.

The sanctuary currently provides state-of-the-art protection for 11 black rhinos relocated from other conservancies and national parks. You can enjoy the thrill of a lifetime – tracking a 1,870- to 3,530-pound rhino… on foot. Accompanied by an expert Saruni guide and a highly-trained Sera Community Conservancy ranger, equipped with a GPS transmitter, you set out to find these animals that stand 59 to 69 in high at the shoulder and are some 11 to 13 feet in length.

This is just one of the memorable adventure you experience as you explore the expansive landscapes the during the 17-day President’s Pick: Tanzania & Kenya journey.
