While much of our recent Africa Safari was in the expansive Serengeti, we spent one day driving into and around the much smaller but extremely beautiful Ngorongoro Crater – here’s a video tour from that day:
Head to YouTube for full resolution.
Here’s another interpretation of our recent Tanzania Safari, this time created from photos I took. Once again, created from those photos using Apple Photo Memories – I’ve found that tool to be both excellent and terrible! It’s very fast to create a nice video slideshow using the Apple tool, but as soon as you want to alter or fine tune it, it becomes very challenging – the tool frequently and arbitrarily discards adjustments, and provides no way to control many aspects of the final creation. The minutes it takes to create an initial presentation turn into hours and days to try and get everything perfect. As you’ll see in this video, I eventually abandoned my attempts to reach “perfect”, and stopped at “good enough”!
Check out my other post for the alternative presentation, from videos rather than photos.
It’s hard sometimes when watching a Safari program on television – or when watching my Safari Video(!) – to get a realistic idea of what a Safari drive is like. So here I’ve put together a few videos taken during our trip, using just my iPhone (so these views are close to the truck, not zoomed in from far away!)
You can see that the terrain is sometimes grass plain, sometimes more full of trees, sometimes no animals visible and sometimes you have to stop because the animals are blocking the road!
Overall, it’s a spectacular place to visit; even when there’s no animals the scenery is very special …
