    Well at least not the real one. We had a great time here. The pool was inviting as you cannot swim in the lake. There are beautiful gardens to relax in. The staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Katherine Hepburn Suite. Same price as the other rooms so we took this one and glad we did. It is a beautiful room on the boat with its own balcony. Very spacious and great views of the lake. I would stay there again.

It was now time to set up camp at the un-fenced, and un-guarded camp of the Seronera. All were very excited to see what the night would bring, beginning with glistening eyes from the surrounding bushes and a hyena sighting by the water tank and toilets next to where our tents were ...

After all, mom and dad are losing a worker; on the other hand, her husband is a worker gained, even the Sukuma word for son-in-law means “worker.” Mother- and father-in-laws are ...

    ... and grabs a piece. Rolling it into a ball, we then dip it into one of the side bowls. In our side bowls we had dagaa (small minnows) in a sauce. Thankfully, Dan digs in with gusto and eats a good portion of our servings along with his own. The tastes take some getting used to. I can handle the ugali, but the dagaa is a greater challenge. Dan’s kids carry dried dagaa around in their pockets and eat it as a snack! After we eat ...

    ... children, rustling clothes, creaking benches, turning pages, and preaching. In addition, all the outside sounds make their way inside. The choir works to drown them out. Bodies sway, children dance, strong voices lead in high-pitched harmony. Two hours of energetic worship culminates in the singing congregation walking outside and greeting one another in a large circle in the side yard before the watching ...
