      Friendly service, beautiful rooms and comfortable beds. Great restaurant, computer center, and amazing views of Lake Victoria. Loved it!

      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.

      ... leopard in a tree! We have been so lucky on these game drives. Sunset marked the end of our first game drive in the Serengeti, and what a beautiful one it was! 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 ...

Daughter-in-laws are viewed warily…will she try to take for her own clan? The Sukuma word for daughter-in-law means “one who comes in.” She is an intruder of sorts. After a child or two, mom and dad will demonstrate their trust in the stability of the relationship by carving off a piece of ...

      We are invited to sit outside the home in the shade. A gentle breeze feels refreshing after the cramped quarters in the house. William pulls out a pile of photographs and we share them together. There are pictures of weddings, church services, and family members. Of note, there are not pictures of landscapes or ...

      Tuesday's turboprop flight from Nairobi to Mwanza was on time and uneventful. It is always fun to have first time visitors sit by the window as Lake Victoria glides by on the right hand side of the aircraft and the African plains unfurl beneath. Both are impressive sights. The city of Mwanza is built on a pile of huge boulders on the shore of the lake toward the southern end. The topography is other-worldy and beautiful. It looks like some giant ...
