Massai Village Water Filter Project (Village #2) plus African Safari  March 8-14, 2019
​​

Have you ever dreamed of going on an African Safari? Me too. I am Georgia Evans and that was my dream since I was a child thumbing through the worn out National Geographic magazines. I am also pretty sure I did not miss one Tarzan show on TV. Wild images of elephants tossing water over their backs in a river, lions roaring, monkeys swinging in trees, cheetahs chasing down a gazelle for dinner, fierce African warriors with shields and spears all captured my active imagination. These images made me determined to go there one day.

Well, it took me a long time but I finally achieved this incredible dream two years ago. Now, I am pretty much hooked and plan to go back. However, this time it is my plan to share the dream with others and you are invited to attend.

Two years ago I planned to fulfill a dream to go on an African Photo Safari. While researching the location I noticed in a magazine that African women were carrying water in buckets on their heads collected from scary looking water sources (one had hippos and elephants wallowing around in it) and I thought to myself, "How can that be healthy? That has got to be full of disease and filth." Then, I thought about the water filters that I take backpacking and wondered if that wasn't a simple solution for them to have clean water to drink? How hard could that be? Well, one thing led to another.....

With a little research I realized I could get larger community size water filters from Vestergaard to help these people. I found that they do not require batteries, chemicals or electricity to clean large amounts of water for a small village. Perfect for a remote village that does not have a well, electricity or plumbing!


Can you imagine drinking this gunky water without a filter??? Me neither. Ick!















Two years ago I successfully raised $2500 (online and offline) from generous people and did my first water filter project in Tanzania, Africa.

The filters were ordered, shipped and actually arrived on time to my hotel in Tanzania, Africa. I remember feeling nervous because I wasn't sure if they would even be there upon my arrival in Africa or not...I also had to pay a $100 bribe to border guards between Kenya and Tanzania to get these water filters across the border. It was just expected.

Anyway, they made it safely and my local trip guides, Victor, Juma & Richard at Top Guides, loaded them up on the safari vehicles. Then we all headed into the Serengeti to meet the Massai villagers at their hut village near the Ngorongoro Crater.


The young chief greeted us with warm enthusiasm and directed us proudly to their little school, see below. It had a lot of hand painted wall decor, so it was obvious this was a special place for this small community.

The room had school benches and chairs, some lovely cut window glass decor, a chalk board with a teachers table and that is about all. Lots of chickens roamed about inside and out.


My African guides unloaded and carried one of the two filters into the school for the children. Villagers eagerly pitched in to help as these filters are pretty good sized and cumbersome to carry. Photo above is me unpacking and assembling the community size filter.

Then everyone stood around and watched as I put the filters together. Lots of children of all ages were expectantly seated on their benches in the schoolroom as well.

The Massai chief was very friendly and interested in having clean water. He listened intently as I tried to explain how to use the filters. It was clear that he felt deeply about helping his people have clean water to drink. Waterborne illness is a constant problem for them.


However, I realized quickly, there was a good bit of a language barrier. This chief only had a few words of English and I did not speak Massai and my local guides only spoke Swahili. It was my mistake to assume that my local African guides would be able to talk with the Massai villagers.

So, I was just kicking myself because it had never occurred to me to even ask if I would need a translator when we got to this village. My concern began to grow during this exchange as I was not certain if this chief understood all my words and hand signals or not.

We also tried to discuss the 50 small individual size personal water filter straws they can carry or hang around their neck when they go out into the Serengeti to gather water, wood and herd their cattle.


Eventually, we found ourselves laughing a bit and we decided to take the other community sized filter (I brought two) to the center of his village where his people had gathered to sell jewelry to our group and give an actual demonstration with water. Yes, laughter is a universal language!

This felt like the solution to the problems so when we drove away I felt confident the filters would get good use.






















I loved this experience and I was so glad to be able to help these people with clean water and better health.

It is a fulfilling and fun cultural exchange.....that makes a real difference to their quality of life. They stay healthier with clean drinking water. This is a unique opportunity and NOT something ordinary tourists will experience. We are making a difference one village at a time.


WAYS TO PARTICIPATE: Donations are being accepted for the water filters (and please share this link, thanks)  https://www.gofundme.com/cleanwaterfiltersforvillagesproject-yolasite-com

WANT TO GO TOO?

So, last time I went and came home with all my photos many people asked how they could go to. Realize i am also going (on my own dime) to take photos of Africa. However I set up a group site where you can experience (help and volunteer if you want to) in the water filter project as well as go on safari with me. It is $4200 plus airfare and includes all lodging, transportation in Africa, airport transfers and almost every meal with some exclusions. Youth with responsible adults are allowed. 

People are also asked to share (not required, you can just go for the experience) the gofundme page set up to buy these filters. https://www.gofundme.com/cleanwaterfiltersforvillagesproject-yolasite-com


The water filters are then ordered from Switzerland and delivered into Tanzania via Kenya (I had to bribe the border guards at the Kenya border last time). They are then driven to our hotel in Arusha and our African guides will pack them onto the safari vehicle. We will deliver them by hand to another Massai village where we will assemble them and demonstrate how to use them.

I am honored to be joined this next March 2019 by a Massai Chief, who has helped National Geographic better understand the Massai culture. This revered chief will be our project's Massai/English translator to help the tribe better communicate how to use the water filters successfully.

If we are lucky the Massai will invite us to join in on a famous traditional Massai jump dance. We will probably have an opportunity to buy some authentic Massai art and jewelry as well.  I am sure it will be a wonderful visit. I know they will be grateful for clean water too.

ABOUT OUR SAFARI: We will be staying in some amazing and lodges and safari camps. Good food, good beds, bathrooms and incredible locations! All accommodations on this trip have two beds or a double in very spacious rooms for 2 people (max 4). Some even have pools if you want to take a dip. Our English speaking local guides are very experienced and grew up in the region. They know the area, the wildlife and migration in the Serengeti to help ensure excellent wildlife photography. You will be exploring during one of the best times of the year to view wildlife. Our guides will do their best to provide front row seats to these wild and natural scenes.

You will spend time in the best of Tanzania's Parks, home to what is considered the "Greatest wildlife spectacle on Earth". Nothing can prepare you for the millions of animals wandering on hillsides, going to watering holes and spread out over plains stretching to the horizon on their annual migration. This is very REAL, just like nature created it!
** Minimum 6 to go / Only 15 Places Available in group ** 

While there can be no guarantees what all you will see ....elephants and swift cheetahs, to thousands of migrating wildebeests and zebras with their babies, water buffalo, rhinos, gazelles, leopards, giraffes and the mighty lion all call this place home. You might also see some of natures "clean up" crew of giant vultures, raptors and other smaller mammals like hyenas and cunning jackals. Many photos on this page are from my last African Safari. Note: please realize all these animals live wild here, they have to find food and water daily so we will always try to respect this.

ITINERARY FOR WATER FILTER PROJECT & AFRICAN SAFARI - Includes meals beverages and drinks as indicated below. 
 
 
Day 1: One night accommodation in Arusha, Tanzania, Africa

Arrive at Moshi- Kilimanjaro Airport. From here we will pick you up at the airport and transfer you to our lovely hotel at the African Tulip in Arusha where you will stay for the first night. (Transfer from airport to hotel is included.) Relax when you get in. Dinner and a bar are available at our hotel.  Plan to meet everyone in the bar that evening for orientation around 8pm to get acquainted. (dinner first night is extra, breakfast is included in the morning, all beverages and drinks are extra.)

Day 2: Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge  

After breakfast (breakfast is included, drinks are extra) around 8.30am we will pack up and be transported from our hotel in Arusha on a scenic drive to the beautiful Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge where we will settle in for a 2 night stay (has won the World Luxury Hotel Award). This top class lodge is in a lush highlands forest on the rim of the ancient volcano overlooking the crater. ​Themed around traditionally circular African houses with conical roofs, and decorated with examples of Africa’s rich tapestry of artistic traditions by way of rich woodcarvings and sculptures, the lodge harmonizes perfectly with its dramatic surroundings. 
Bring your swimsuit if you want to take a dip in the pool. You will love it! (All meals are included, beverages and drinks are extra)


Day 3: Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge: Game Drive for viewing and photography in Ngorongoro Crater

In the morning after a delicious breakfast overlooking the African plains we will wake up early and leave for our wildlife safari adventure as we descend down onto the floor of an enormous, ancient (non active) volcanic crater that is full of wild animals roaming about. The crater is also a World Heritage Site and has been called the eighth wonder of the world due to all of the wild creatures that call it home.

It is famous for the it's 10 mile plains of rich short grass. The animals thrive here and raise their young like no other place in the world. The entire big 5 are often seen in one day as well as excellent predator interactions. ​Tere is also a lake often filled with flamingos. Throw in the rising crater walls all around you and you have a perfect backdrop made for an artist and camera.


For people accustomed to city zoos this place will be an eye opener unlike anything you have ever experienced. These are not tame animals. They will not pose for you and you cannot pet them. These are wild creatures in a natural environment, just like nature intended. They are not fed by a zoo keeper. There are predators who must hunt and kill for their every meal. The herbivores must find grass, small creatures or insects for their dinner and stay ever vigilant they do not become someone's meal. They all have to constantly seek out water sources each day. It is very, very real! So please prepare yourself for beauty as well as predators who my have to kill for their supper.


Note depending upom how many water filters we can buy and bring...we may visit a Massai Village on this afternoon to assemble and show them how to use them...we will be flexible here but we will be in the area where they live so it is a possibility. 

Day 4: Massai Village and Water Filter Project and go to Chaka Safari Tent Camp
We will pack up early, get breakfast and leave for our much anticipated visit to a local Massai Village where we will assemble and teach the local tribespeople about how to use the community water filters we will bring to them. It is a uniquely authentic African experience with native people who still live and maintain their ancient tribal culture.​
This year I am honored to have a local chief who has worked with National Geographic join us as our Massai Translator. He will help describe to the local tribesmen the "what and why's" of the community size Lifestraw Water Filters we will be showing them how to use. 
This experience is a truly unique way to visit with these people... no tourists get to experience anything like this ... as the Massai really want to have clean water and you will be truly welcomed.

We will be staying at an authentic African style tent camp that night. (All Inclusive: includes all meals and beverages, wine and beer. Premium liquor is extra.)

















Day 5- 6: Serengeti National Park Game Drives and Chaka Safari TentCamp
  
After breakfast we will start driving towards the famous southern Serengeti, home to the enormous migratory herds during the green season (Dec to Apr). This area consists of the world famous Serengeti plains. These nutrient rich plains are home to the enormous migratory herds of wildebeest, antelope and zebra during the green season. Wildlife viewing is spectacular in this area as over two million animals will be spread across the vast open plains making it the largest migration of land mammals on the planet. In addition to the large migratory herds, predators like lions, cheetahs and hyenas are abundant. This is the Serengeti at its best.

It really is a sight to behold. We will be out all day on our game drive and will enjoy picnic lunch on the crater floor.
  
​We will be staying at an authentic African style tent camp. (All Inclusive: includes all meals and beverages, wine and beer. Premium liquor is extra.)

Day 7: Make our way home
After breakfast at the lodge, we will take a short flight back to the Arusha Airport. So, we will get a small taste of Africa by air. Our guides will drive us from Arusha to Kilimanjaro International Airport to catch an International flight home This takes about an hour. Please do not make your return flight before 2 pm on this day. Allow time in your return flight schedule to be at the Kilamanjaro Int'l Airport 2 hours before departure to get through security etc.  (Flight and Airport Transfer included).

This is unfortunately the end of the safari. We will put a facebook page where you can share images with your new friends and trip mates.

__________________________________________________________

Basic info and FAQ about the photo safari:

  • The Serengeti offers a variety of options to the landscape and nature photographer. We will be heading out early mornings and late afternoon to drive out on the plains. These hours are the best for animal and predator movement and also for photography.
  • As is often the case in East Africa, "all day" game drives are common. These all day affairs include tasty packed lunches and water, of course.
  • Midday hours are generally used to rest, talk about various sightings with new friends, discuss animal behavior and movement and photographic techniques.
  • There will be some opportunity to get feedback on photos you take. 
  • Not A Photographer? That is no problem, you are welcome to come and enjoy the amazing adventure! If you just have a camera phone you can still take home some pretty good photos to share and remember it by. You can choose to not attend any photo discussions we have if you like.
  • While we are mostly Nikon users we can help you learn how to use your DSLR camera and even help you get off AUTO. Want to learn how to make your photos pop? Georgia will show you simple techniques in photoshop and lightroom to make your photos have better contrast, fix some exposure issues, enhance skies and more! Be sure to pack your camera manual. We will share photos and talk about them. Ever wondered how to get more color into your skies? Want to learn how to photograph the night stars? Want to learn how to combine two cool photos? Are your photos too cluttered and busy? Are your photos dull or crooked? Georgia wil be there to show you some great photoshop techniques to enhance them so you will be proud to show them off. It is all a lot of fun.
  • Meals are included as indicated in trip itinerary above. Some beverages and all premium & special drinks are extra. Water will be provided in our safari vehicles.

SPECS & INFO ABOUT THE WATER FILTERS by Vestergaard

LifeStraw® Community is a high-volume point-of-use water purifier with built-in safe storage that provides safe drinking water for community, educational and institutional settings. It prevents waterborne disease such as diarrhea, typhoid, cholera, worms, and cryptosporidiosis.

Hollow fibre filtration technology converts contaminated water into safe drinking water
Removes a minimum of 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.999% of viruses and 99.99% of protozoan parasites
Reduces turbidity (muddiness) by filtering particulate matter larger than 0.02 microns
Meets the standard for the “highly protective” category of household water treatment options by the World Health Organization and complies with US EPA guidelines for microbiological water purifiers
Can purify between 70,000 -100,000* litres of water, enough to serve community settings for several years
Chemical-free
Made of durable plastic
Doesn’t require electrical power or batteries

The girls and women spend a good deal of time each day collecting water in buckets that they carry back to their village on their heads from remote streams and water sources often miles away. They also gather wood for cooking and boiling. The presence of a water filter will also help them reduce some of the tree cutting and wood gathering because they will not have to boil the water.

Helps Reduce Waterborne Diseases
Waterborne diseases are caused by drinking contaminated or dirty water. Contaminated water can cause many types of diarrheal diseases, including Cholera, and other serious illnesses such as Guinea worm disease, Typhoid, and Dysentery. Water related diseases cause 3.4 million deaths each year. LifeStraw® water filters remove the bacteria and pathogens that contaminate water to decrease the incidence of waterborne diseases.


WHY DO THEY NEED A WATER FILTER?
These Massai villagers live in round mud houses with thatched roofs and hard packed dirt floors just as they have done for centuries. They have no running water, plumbing or electricity. Each hut has a small fireplace/hearth in the middle and the sides are walled off to make two rooms for sleeping and one for cooking. The mud/dung/grass/hay and stick huts are built completely by the women! I was amazed. Yeah, for women power.


LifeStraw® Community in Schools

Many schools in developing countries don’t have access to safe drinking water.
LifeStraw® Community is ideal as a safe drinking water component in school-based WASH programs.
Four taps allow children to access water at high volumes.
Can reduce school absenteeism by preventing children from getting waterborne disease.
Children can be strong advocates of safe water and hygiene at home to their parents when they learn it at school.
Availability of clean water can motivate parents to send their children to school.
LifeStraw® Community at Health Facilities

Safe drinking water is vital in Health Facilities for:
Administering medicines
Hand washing facilities
Safe handling and removal of feces

Personal hygiene
Millions of preventable infections occur every year within the health care environment because of inadequate attention to WASH.
Patients with HIV/AIDS need water treatment that can prevent cryptosporidiosis, which has developed a resistance to chlorine.


LifeStraw® Community in Workplaces

Many workers don’t have access to safe drinking water during work hours.
Workers who have access to safe water can experience increased productivity by staying hydrated and remaining healthy.
Workers with access to safe water can decrease their absences from work due to waterborne illnesses.


LifeStraw® Community in Community Dining Spaces
Improves nutrition by preventing loss of vital nutrients due to diarrhea and water-related illness.
Helps prevent stunted growth and malnutrition in children who are particularly vulnerable to waterborne illness.
Helps improve the productivity of school children and workers by reducing absenteeism from sicknesses related to diarrhea and other waterborne diseases.
Contributes to economic development of the community through increased productivity of workers and income saved from avoidance of clinic expenditures.
