Besides the overabundance of wildlife I have been shooting, this week I had the opportunity to travel to Burunge to visit one of AWF’s WMAs. Just a quick recap for those of you who don’t know what a WMA is, WMA is an acronym for Wildlife Management Area.
Thanks to the AWF Conservation Schools program, more students in rural Africa will have access to a quality primary school education. But what happens once they graduate? Secondary schools can be located far from local villages and tuition can be out of reach for many poor, rural families.
This past week has felt like one long safari trip that I never want to end. The amount of wildlife, people, and stories I have encountered humbles me greatly and I can’t believe I still have two weeks left.
To get to the town of Kondoa (located in the district of Kondoa) from Arusha, Tanzania, you drive almost 300 km down Rte. A104. Google Maps will tell you the drive takes three hours and 47 minutes, but Google Maps is wrong. The journey takes closer to four-and-a-half, five hours.
Where do I even begin? I feel like I lived a lifetime is just a matter of days. I’m so incredibly blessed and humbled to embark on amazing opportunity thanks to Nat Geo WILD and the African Wildlife Foundation.
