Pat’s Travel Story
Words by Patricia Matthews. Pictured, Judith Lynch
“It was one of the most fascinating experiences I have ever had. I will never forget that trip! The food, logistics travel, lifestyles and the people were just amazing to me. I especially like the fact that the Maasai still embrace their culture. The children were very respectful of their elders.
Visiting the arts and craft centers was another whole, new and wonderful experience. The Indian Ocean, riding camels, going on safari, seeing the not-so-commercial side of the culture was just wonderful! Mombasa, was so nice, I wanted to buy property there and have a place to go and stay for a while.”

“Wisson, go get your brother. He’s saying he won’t leave.”Judy (on husband's refusal to leave Zanzibar)

FAQ (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)
What makes the Serengeti Gallery safari different from others? Rest assured that when you travel with SG, you will not be passed off from one fast-talking guide to the next, nor left waiting at a pick-up or drop-off point. Instead, you will be accompanied to each destination by the same dedicated guide(s). Our guides are professionals who have lived and toured this region for years.
Year after year, people who value creativity, beauty and truth– people like you– seek us out for authentic cultural experiences; and our travel groups seem to be made up of the most good-humored, fun-spirited and open-minded adults we have the pleasure of knowing. We are also pleased to share that many of our travelers develop lifelong friendships.
Where are we going? In particular, we are visiting Mombasa and Nairobi, Kenya, Arusha, Tanzania, and The Ngorongoro Conservation Area. 17-day tour-goers will continue to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and the island of Zanzibar for visits to Stone Town, Prison Island and Bagamoyo.
Who is guiding the group? The 2017 group will be led by Gallery Director, Wisson West. He is a one-time resident of the region, and will introduce you to local guides, experts and old friends, who will share fun facts and anecdotes to enhance your experience.
Are we camping outdoors? Sorry, this is no camping trip! We look forward to unwinding in four-star climate-controlled hotel and resort accommodations at the end of each day of exploration.
