    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.

    Planned highlight of the day (to see, not climb): Mount Kilimanjaro, elevation 19,341'

    Today we got picked up by our guide at 9:30am and headed out to the Shanga shops, where handicapped people make hand-made goods, such as glass blowing, scarves, jewelry and more. Three years ago it started it out hiring 4 people and they are now up to …

    Arusha is a town of approximately 400,000 people according to Wikitravel, or 1.2 million according to Wikipedia, so, you know, big... -ish. It's a popular stopover spot before beginning a safari, which is exactly what we're doing. There are apparently some great markets to do a little bargaining and buying of handmade area goods.

    ... and drumming. Lunch with the graduates in the dining hall was an amazing feat of cooking with pots and pots of African stews, meats and rice and of course the goat cake. We got a much needed rest in the afternoon back at Planet Lodge after this well organised event. All the visitors dined that night at Karama Lodge where we were welcomed again by student drummers and dancers. A great way to finish the day's ...

    ... trees right next to the road. Seeing them in the wild was astounding, as they're taller than you think, and when they run it almost looks like it's in slow motion due to their long, loping strides. After about two hours of casual animal sighting, we arrived at the Serengeti. The enormity of the plains is indescribable. The main buildings for the national park sit at an outcropping of rocks within the center of the park. Atop the rocks is a complete, 360 degree view of the ...

    Neema House

    Jambo! The best day of my life was when I visited the baby orphanage called Neema House on Saturday. This orphanage was started by an American couple in 2012 and currently holds 30 babies from newborns to 2 years old. When they get past two they hope to have them adopted but there are a few at the moment who are having to be rehoused in another orphanage. When I arrived I was given a tour of the house and then introduced to a girl from America who ...
