TRIP OF THE WEEK
IF a crammed Yomtov schedule hasn’t prevented you getting to the cinema, you may have seen the new Disney-backed film The Crimson
Wing documenting the extraordinary life cycle of the strange and beautiful crimson-winged flamingo.
Featured in the film is the eerie and ethereal Lake Natron, a massive soda lake in northern Tanzania, near the Ngorogoro Crater, where the extraordinary birds can be seen. Travel operator Expert Africa is offering a 10-day guided safari, which includes two days at Lake Natron, with accommodation at Ngero Sero Lake Natron Camp, which is close enough to the edge of the lake to allow visitors to walk out to photograph the elegant avians. The Nightjar Safari costs from £3,728 per person (based on two sharing) including international flights, all transfers, seven nights’ full-board across three top-range safari camps and all guiding, safari activities and permits (020 8232 9777, www.
