Last year’s Filmmaker of the Year Trippy Award went to Nik and Dusty Green of Two for the Road. For their “Choose Your Own Adventure” Grand Prize trip, they decided to go to Africa! Now they are back with some spectacular videos from their incredible adventures.
We’ve dreamed of going on an African safari since we were kids. And believe us when we say, it’s all we ever imagined and so much more! Seeing the animals in their natural habitat is something we’ll always cherish. Definitely a dream come true!
Thanks again to Tripfilms! And of course all of you viewers for your much appreciated votes!

Nik and Dusty also have some funny behind-the-scenes stories to share:
We were assaulted and robbed in Tanzania! …Well, sort of…
While on safari, Dusty and our Maasai guide Dennis hiked to a beautiful waterfall. As they were enjoying a nice cool dip in the pool, they noticed someone was throwing rocks at them. That someone ended up being several dozen baboons. Baboons that chased them down the canyon throwing rocks at them the whole time!
On our last day on safari, we stopped by a beautiful spot for lunch. Just as Nik opened her lunchbox, she felt a tap on her shoulder and quickly realized her sandwich was gone! A monkey had apparently been carefully watching for that exact moment to swoop in and steal her sandwich. He ran up into the tree and proceeded to eat the sandwich – except for the onions he threw down from the tree. Not a fan of onions I guess.
Moral of these two stories? Watch out for thieving, rock throwing monkeys in Tanzania
