Safari in Arusha National Park

Very pleasantly surprised at the diversity and spottings in Arusha National Park. Less than an hour’s drive. We had a great day.

Went on a safari close to home – an easy day trip – with some fellow Food Water Shelter volunteers. The wild life we saw….

  • Cape Buffalo
  • Zebra
  • Giraffe (Several different sightings, some very very close.)
  • Wart hogs
  • Blue monkey
  • Colobus Monkey
  • Water fall
  • Baboons
  • Dikdik or some small antelope
  • Water Buck (So named because there is no substantial meat that predators can get to – they are very..uh..watery. So, the Water Buck essentially has no predators.)
  • Hippo (from a far distance)
  • Flamingos (And they are just as silly in person as you can imagine.)
  • Surval cat (Just a flash of her)
  • Bush buck
  • Greyheaded kingfisher
  • Dikdik (small antelope)

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy, as the Executive Director of the Wrangell Mountain Center. When not in McCarthy, you'll typically find me in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, writing and working with local activists. My primary writing project right now is a novel set in remote bush Alaska, of the magical realism genre wherein an earnest and independent young woman finds a mysterious radio belonging to her grandmother, a device that has paranormal bandwidth and a disturbing ability to mess with one's mental stability.
