Safaris of Tanzania

Ty Poland

Although it is less than a minute in length, this piece by Ty Poland brings you over a dozen aerial views of some of the safari animals in Tanzinia. The east African country is known for its vast wilderness areas (particularly the vast Serengeti grasslands) and is a home to thousands upon thousands of what are known as the "big five" safari animal species - elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards, and buffalo. We'd call this video an adventure to remember for Ty and his crew.
