Donna and Gary (Bum) Baumgartner

DonnaBumDonna, with an MA in education and 32 years teaching experience, brings organizational and people skills as well as attention to detail to Viewpoint Adventures. Bum, with a background in marketing and communication, brings a creative and fresh approach to developing the perfect trip for you . Donna fell in love with Tanzania, its people and wildlife, on her first safari. She brought Gary (Bum) on safari the following year, and he, too, fell in love with Tanzania. It was fate to join forces with Idrissah, forming Viewpoint Adventures. The positive outlook, graciousness, and optimism of the Tanzanian people impressed both Bum and Donna. Donnaʼs father, Don Jurgs, taught her to be a traveler, not a tourist, and that meeting, interacting, and understanding the local people is what traveling is all about. The Baumgartnerʼs want to share their love of Tanzania with others. They will be your US contact, helping to guide you through the booking process, sharing their expertise, and answering any questions.
