Hi, I am Terri Watson and I want to thank you for your interest in my Tanzania Safaris.
As a Colorado native, I grew up in Montrose on the Western Slope and moved to Denver in 1981. I spent my 38-year career as a Human Resources Professional working for manufacturing companies.
I have hiked the entire 500+ miles of the Colorado Trail, I was a bicyclist and an avid scuba diver, logging over 200 dives around the world. I moved to Doha Qatar, on the Persian Gulf, with my husband, Bob, in 2011. I still enjoy hiking and camping in Colorado outdoors.
While in Doha, I was able to pursue my love of photography and sharpen my skills. We lived there for four years, returning to Colorado in 2015. I am happy to be home and close to family and friends.
It seems I have always had a camera in my hands and a longing for adventure in my heart. I have sought out a variety of experiences around the world. I am drawn to explore wherever I am; the environment, the people, wildlife, and the surrounding activities. Taking a photo is one thing but to create the image that reflects the moment and preserve it forever is pure joy for me; from beginning to end.
In 1994 I saw the IMAX movie, Africa - The Serengeti. I so wished to visit and witness The Great Migration; something I thought I would never do. Bob was a board member for an organization who taught at a hospital in Tanzania, so in 1999, I went with him and on my first safari. I fell in love with The Serengeti; from A to Z! The Annual Wildebeest Migration, the abundance of animals, the variety of birds, and the different landscapes were simply remarkable! I visited Tanzania several times over the years that followed.
I was hooked!
Because I enjoy sharing this amazing experience with like-minded travelers, I started leading safaris in 2012. My guests often say, 'I thought yesterday and the day before was great, but today was even better! 'Another repeated phrase is 'Tanzania; there is no place like it on Earth.' I couldn’t agree more and that is why I keep going back.
Sharing Tanzania is ultimately the most gratifying aspect for me.
