(With apologies to Montana.)
The African savanna is the original big-sky country. It swallows you up in its vastness.
The Serengeti measures a 12,000 square miles in size. It is part of Tanzania’s national park system and is home to more than 70 large mammal species. It is truly one of the last spectacular big-game areas left on the planet.
Some say that the word serengeti comes from the Maasai language and translates into English as “endless plains.”
Historically, the region has also been called Maasailand after the Maasai people.
Over 500 species of birds may be spotted in the big Serengeti sky. There are a few tsetse (tik-tik) flies too.
If you are a pastor, church leader, or educator who is interested in leading a trip to the lands of the Bible, let me hear from you. I partner with faith-based groups to craft and deliver outdoor academic experiences. Leaders receive the same perks that other agencies offer, at competitive prices, and without the self-serving interests that often derail pilgrim priorities.
