Join us for a bucket list expedition to
As you know, this year we visited a very special and memorable lodge in Africa - TAASA Lodge. TAASA is located right outside of the famous Serengeti National Park in Northern Tanzania. We experienced some of the most amazing animal encounters we’ve ever had. TAASA is an all-inclusive, family-owned luxury lodge with unique opportunities rarely found in East Africa - off-road game drives, night drives, authentic Masai village visits, breakfasts in the bush and dinners in the boma. We're so excited to invite you to join us at TAASA this coming Summer 2019.
We hope you’ll consider joining us for three nights at TAASA Lodge in Tanzania. TAASA has graciously offered a unique package where our family and you, our special guests, will have exclusive access to the entire lodge. The property is limited to 11 private, suited tents, so don’t wait to inquire. We can’t wait to meet and spend time with each and every one of you who join this small and intimate group.
