Bumps on the Road

Running projects for the community is an incredibly rewarding and privileged role to play for a safari company in Tanzania. But that is not to say it does not come with bumps on the road, or in this case, an incomplete bridge… [cid:[email protected]] During our last series of project visits to villages outside of the Serengeti, we made the mistake of taking a shortcut, something you should never do when on village visits. The road we thought was complete and would take us to our destination that day, unfortunately included a very incomplete bridge.
