Bill & Eva’s Custom Photo Safari in Tanzania
Experience Tanzania’s Stunning Wildlife, Landscape & Culture
ACC-US board chair, Dr. Bill Yancey and his wife Eva have enjoyed hosting safaris to Tanzania for over a decade. Along with Frederick Mbwambo, an outstanding safari guide, they provide a safe, comfortable, educational, and unforgettable wildlife viewing and photography experience. They would love nothing more than to introduce you to the amazing wildlife, landscapes and cultures of Tanzania.
A Message from Dr. Bill Yancey
East Africa has an abundance of wildlife that cannot be matched anywhere else on Earth. Eva and I have enjoyed taking small groups to Northern Tanzania to witness first hand this fantastic, dramatic experience. We have selected the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti in May each year, because of the enormous abundance of game, ease of travel, and safety. We have our own expert guides who know every inch of that territory, and take care of us from the moment we land there, until our plane leaves for home. The landscape is beautifully green, and teaming with wildlife. As so many of our past participants have said over the years…
“The trip of a lifetime!”
