Ngorongoro Crater

We were delayed briefly in Kuratu while we had a repair done on one of our Land Cruisers. Safari is difficult on these vehicles, since most of the roads are dusty and in poor repair. All of the safari drivers are terrific mechanics (think MacGuyver with trucks) and do daily maintenance on the vehicles, but sometimes the conditions are too much for even that.

I was expecting to see one or two, but a short drive in and there was a herd of them, and they were so close to the path! They were mainly females and there were baby ones there too. We learnt that elephants are also left or right handed, as you can tell by one tusk being shorter than the other as they use the same ...

... brakes on the vehicle. After hitting a bad pothole we have no brakes! Rudi spends about three hours next to the road repairing some of the brake fluid pipes. The pipes were broken by a suspension bracket that broke, the same one that broke in Namibia between Solitaire and Swakopmund. In any event, Rudi manages to repair the brakes to such an extent that we can continue ...
