TRIP OF THE WEEK

The Jewish Chronicle - - Life/travel -

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.
