More Safari :)

We spent the next couple of days on Safari. From Arusha we first drove to the Ngorogoro Crater which backs onto the Serengeti and is the remains of a Volcano. The remaining Crater is full of animals almost like a little eco-system. We saw lots of animals that I haven't seen in the wild...

The Bumpy Road to Tanzania

Today we took a very long and bumpy road from Nairobi, Kenya to Arusha, Tanzania. The journey was fantastic. Quite suddenly the scenery changed to arid plains. Somewhere near the Tanzanian border we started passing through tribal villages. The tribal costumes were amazing, they have lots of...

Ngorongoro Crater

Yet another amazing day on another safari in a Crater, a collapsed Volcano. We saw loads of other amazing animals, loads of hyenas eating a wildebeest, a cerval which we'd never seen before, 2 black rhinos and thousands of flamingoes. However, when we (stupidly) got out of...

2 safaris booked!

We had a pretty practical day managing to book 2 tours to the Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire national parks and a bus to Mombassa for Monday. However, getting hassled is getting very annoying now; a group of guys waiting for us outside even made our friend cry by calling her vicious names. So...
