The big 5 - Serengeti & Ngorongoro Crater

A travel blog entry by lottieuganda

... it was a chilly night and getting up at 5am was difficult but totally worth it. We ascended into the crater, which is a national park in itself and therefore no tribes live there, though they are allowed to take cattle to graze there in the day. I couldn't get over the beautiful scenery and although we didn't see a huge amount of animals to start with none of us minded. As we approached the lake we saw hundreds of pink flamingoes which were a sight to see. ...

Leaving Ilboru and arriving at St Jude's!

... and I stayed and had dinner with some other Australian volunteers and visitors.

The following day, I went to visit the secondary campus at Usa River, about a 45 minute drive away with some other visitors.

So when we arrived bright and early in the morning we could see lion tracking wildebeest and zebra standing guard watching the lions so their ...

Wishing for a teleport.

... to distract me. We wandered around for an hour or so while the others hunted for some souveneirs for home. We spent the rest of the afternoon by the pool again. I was able to get on to Jess later tonight which was great- we're both feeling far from home. Couldn't get skype to work properly so we ended up chatting msn style but it was still so good to be in touch. I'm heading to Arusha tomorrow to see Kye- although it's been ages it will be so good to see a familiar ...
