Safari Safari Safari!!

Just got back to camp after 3 full days of safari! We started by jumping into jeeps and heading to Lake Manyara the day after we arrived in Arusha. The National park here was mostly dense forests and a few open grassland areas and we spotted monkeys, baboons, herds of elephants and a handful of...

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...

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...

Serengeti & Ngorogoro Crater

Animals heaven. The herds of buffalo, zebra and wilderbeest were all settled on the Tanzanian side. One day on a game drive we witnessed a cheetah mother kill a reedbok [deer] and her and her 4 kids eat it in front of us for hour and a half. All this I caught on video!! We saw...
