The Mentor Series Tanzania trek was a once in a lifetime experience for many of us. An African safari is most people’s list of dream destinations. For photographers, it’s an absolute must. The Mentor Series team created a great itinerary through Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. Our mentors, Bob Smith, and Reed Hoffmann, had all previously led safaris in Africa and were on the lookout for great photo opportunities as were our skilled team of guides/drivers. The fantastic Mentor Series team of Michelle Cast and Vanessa Vazquez at Bonnier made sure our trek ran smoothly, we were well fed and had beautiful accommodations.
