... of flamingos flying from a very far distance. Then with all three parks we got to see plenty of elephants (herds passing in front of our vehicle), giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, wildebeests, monkeys, warthogs (so many pumbas), etc. I was living The Lion King. Luckily we made it back safe and sound considering our vehicle broke down approx. 15 times on the second day. We sat for and hour and a half while they fixed it. We got so bored we were taking pictures of trees that looked ...

... here before! We ended up almost in Lake Matera and so set up camp before dark. The next day the adventure really began as we found a Masai camp and cajoled some young men to take us to Izaaz, a town on the main road- 3 Masai jumped onto a motorbike and headed off- 2 river crossings later, the motorbike stopped as water was on plugs and in air filter.

... last week! We met, then took off for the center of Arusha, since I didn't get to see it last night. It's a real city, much larger than Moshi.
