Source text - English Footprints ventures into Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park to discover the growing appeal of the African safari
Tanzania is truly a safari goer’s paradise. Boasting the most iconic wildlife park in the world – the Serengeti National Park – Tanzania has many other surprises that will only add to the drama and excitement of any visitor to this beautiful and fabled land.
While growing populations demand the world’s resources, the National Parks of Tanzania stand resolutely protected; from the vast tracts of wilderness of the Serengeti to the concentrated splendour of Ngorongoro Crater rich, and from the shimmering Lake Manyara dotted by the resident pink flamingoes to the ever-present herds of elephant in Tarangire, Tanzania is indeed a jewel in the crown of wildlife exploration.
Many tourists describe it as the land that time forgot and they have a point. The sound of a hyena shrieking in the distance replaces the siren of an ambulance, the thunderous stampede of wildebeests makes rush hour traffic seem rather pathetic while the elegant poise of a giraffe poking its head above the shrub makes for an attractive alternative to a telegraph pole.
However, Tanzania’s National Parks are very much in the present, interloping, thriving and pulsating with life. As travellers we should see it as our privilege, not our right to enter one of planet earth’s last great wildernesses. Treasure the experience and tread lightly so the next generation can follow in your footsteps.

Source text - English 5th Day CEROCAHUI – COPPER CANYON (Divisadero area)
Visit a Tarahumara school and the 17th Century gold-domed Jesuit mission church before boarding the train (12:27PM – 1:20PM) to Divisadero. A 6 mile private road takes you to the Tarahumara owned ecolodge, the “Uno,” with breath-taking and seemingly endless landscapes of canyons and mountains. From the lodge’s secluded stretch of canyon rim property, gaze into the enormous gorge formed by the river 1 mile below. An afternoon walk through the dense forest around the lodge and along the rim will introduce you to this pristine wilderness area, and the only panoramic river views of any lodging in the area. Visit with nearby Tarahumara families, cooperative owners of 60,000 wilderness acres and the lodge. You may choose your level of physical activity from easy to moderate walks or guided day hikes. Spectacular views of the canyon river bottom are seen from the dining room and other room windows throughout the lodge.
6th Day – COPPER CANYON
The Uno Lodge is perched at the very rim of a large promontory that extends into the canyon offering unrivaled 180 degree vistas. Participate in a walk to a nearby waterfall and study the biological richness of this major ecosystem, ranking high in biodiversity, including the worlds most varied species of pines and oaks, and its unique endemism of species found no where else. Hikers will experienceone of the most outstanding day hikes in North America viewing voluminous quantities of volcanic rocks folded over older Cretaceous and Sedimentary layers that have allbeen deeply and roughly incised by the river erosion. Also explore a cave with a Mogollan Archeological Dwelling, probably a satellite site to the great Paquime Civilization. Enjoy eveningsaround an outdoor fire and under starlit skies miles away from electric lighting – lodge is solar powered.
