    Great stay at the African Tulip. Large, clean rooms with a big, warm shower. Extremely welcoming, nice, friendly staff. They were the highlight of our stay! Very helpful with whatever we needed. There was wi-fi in the rooms for, I think, $10usd for a 24 hour period. The food was okay, usually there was a buffet or you could order off the menu. I'd definitely recommend if you have a stay in Arusha.

    ... all flamingos! After enjoying all the animals, we had a delicious and fulfilling buffet dinner at the restaurant at the hotel. And then we got to have hot showers!! It was an amazing day and I was excited to end it with sleeping on a comfy mattress. I went to sleep while Steve was still reading, and then about 10min late the phone rang. Steve picked up after knocking the phone to the ground (all the lights were off). S: This is not Preeti. [i had answered the phone ...

    ... wine, snacks and cable TV - it’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon after a rough day at school or just to chill out after a swim in the pool on a weekend. We also joined in for the monthly trivia session at a local pub in Arusha. Our general knowledge isn’t as sharp as many of the teachers we went with - however it was a fun evening, albeit a very competitive!
    Another fun afternoon, was spent at the secondary ...

    ... from Tempo house) decided to shot straight vodka and then made ourselves a drink. We only had one more when we stopped to go watch a movie in our tent. Josh however mentioned he had gone and bought some real Cuban cigars and offered us some. I don't smoke but had to try a Cuban cigar. That opportunity doesn't come around normally. After a few hours talking we decided to head to bed and I encountered my first night in a tent in years! As there were four of us, we were nice ...

    ... which meant we could sit and watch them for even longer. But eventually all good things must come to an end so as the sun was setting over the Masai plains we headed out to camp, which was just outside the park on the banks of a river. Amazing to be sleeping that close to the animals, in fact two locals sat up all night keeping watch as apparently it's common to have cheetahs, leopards and hyenas wandering through the camp. This helped us sleep a little better at night ...

    ... to get into the clouds. It was at this point when I realised how high we were we were literally in the clouds. After what it felt like an age climbing the steps, we reached the camp and had some lunch. We then walked up to Little Meru which was a separate mountain to Mount Meru. It was 3820 meters high and there was an amazing view of Mount Meru and of Kilimanjaro form the summit. We then went back down Little Meru, we were told that we would ...
