Howe Library, Hanover, NH

Join Dan Hopkins, owner of GrassTrack Safaris, for a safari across Uganda. A country of stunning diversity, Uganda is one of the best places in Africa to experience mountain gorillas and chimpanzees in the wild. We'll journey from Lake Victoria to the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains, through the savannas of Queen Elizabeth Park and into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Along the way we'll trek for mountain gorillas and chimps, witness abundant wildlife, and search for the rare shoebill stork in the Mabamba Swamps.

GrassTrack Safaris will be offering 2 hosted, privately-guided safaris this year.  One is our "Botswana Photography & Wildlife Safari" and the second our "Southern Tanzania Safari".  During this event we'll describe each safari in detail, how they work, what you can expect, what animals you're likely to see, and with plenty of time for your questions.  Stop by and meet Brenda Petrella who'll be hosting the Botswana photo safari and Dan Hopkins who'll be hosting the Tanzania safari.

Botswana Photography & Wildlife Safari

Grasstrack Safaris and Brenda Petrella Photography of Norwich VT will be hosting an extraordinary photography & wildlife safari into the wilderness of Botswana. Come by and learn all the details about this safari for serious photographers.  We'll discuss what you can expect throughout this safari, the parks you'll visit, wildlife you'll see, recommended photo gear and why a mobile camping safari is the best way to experience the African bush.

Southern Tanzania Safari

Join Dan Hopkins for a privately guided 13-day exploration of the remote southern parks of Tanzania.  I savor the wild, uncrowded spaces of Africa and I designed this safari to take us off the beaten path in these seldom visited areas.  My local Tanzanian partner, pioneers in private wilderness camping, will guide us on this extraordinary journey.  We’ll soak up this wild atmosphere as we explore some of the largest wildlife reserves in Africa.
