Tumaini Cottages is a very pleasant and peaceful place to stay in Arusha. Lillian and Andy gave service beyond expectation. He was at the shuttle stop to meet us and give us a ride. The food is traditional Tanzanian and very good. I loved the view and beautiful landscaping.

We watched the sunrise ...

There were baby ones too :) Dikdiks - tiniest species of antelope family. They were adorable! Flamingos - we couldn't get close to the lake because the lake has been drying up and the coast was getting farther and farther from the road. However we saw a large amount of pink in the lake and ...

There are no gardens here - just dust, dirt, and mud.
