Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park

January 12, 2016

Documentary and commercial photographer Eliza Powell has lived in Africa for the past 20 years and calls a coffee farm on the slopes of Kilimanjaro home. Enjoy her words and photos from an adventure in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park…

I recently had the pleasure of visiting an animal-dense corner in East Africa — the Northern Serengeti’s Sayari Camp in particular. It continues to play a pivotal long-term conservation role, and provides employment for the communities living on the boundary of the park. This breathtaking area is home to lions, elephants, a large hippo and black rhino population, as well as the wildebeests and zebras that migrate through the park. It truly is an eye-opening experience.
