Lara McGlashan & Brandon Volz
Hey everyone and welcome to our 'registry!'

It has long been a dream of ours to go on a safari, which combines our love of adventure and our love of animals into one. We've consulted with a travel agent and have come up with a fantastic trip worthy of honeymoon status to Tanzania and Zanzibar!

The Tanzania safari will be perfectly timed during the 'big migration.' Every year the wildebeest go north from Tanzania into Kenya; our trip will follow them along as they make their way through the desert, across rivers, and over plains. Along the way, we hope to see elephants, hippos, rhinos, and of course Brandon's favorite - the cheetah!

After eight days in Tanzania we'll make our way west to the island of Zanzibar for a few days of beachy fun and to explore what this exotic island has to offer.

There are so many great things about this trip it's impossible to detail in an introduction. Check out the travel details and see what we have in store!

Best,

Lara and Brandon
