The rooms were nice and the beds were good. The public areas are very pretty especially the swimming pool and all overlook the vast plains of the Serengeti. They are however, quite a distance from some of the chalets so expect to do a lot of walking. There was supposed to be a shuttle from the welcome center to the restaurant building, but it didn't work well and the little bus they substituted was difficult to get in and out of so I walked. The camp is in a very remote area which is both good and bad. Some days we drove an hour and half before we saw any game other than the resident zebra and wildebeest. There was a group of hyena that seemed to make their home along the road in and out of the camp. It was fun to see them everyday. The chalets are large with large bathrooms, however a little strange. There was a clawfoot bathtub on a deck outside our bathroom but it was dirty and had no water flowing to it. Really wasn't private enough for my taste anyway. The floor of the bathroom and other floors in the camp have rocks imbedded in them (for a decorative touch) but it is easy to trip on these. The food has an Indian flair and the four days we were there no cooked vegetables so I finally broke down and ate raw salad. No one seemed to get ill from it.

The hominid skulls found in the various layers reveal a growth in brain size from 500 cubic cm to 1200 cubic cms – measurement of the brain size of this Inti group of hominids has yet to be established.

Back at the main tent for lunch after a few minutes to settle in, we discovered that there had been a wildebeest crossing just in front of the camp while we were gone, and everyone who had been in the area had hopped in vehicles to see it. We missed it by minutes. Ugh. That was definitely a disappointment but Kareem, our guide for the next few days, told us that he would do everything he could to make sure we saw one. It was still a little sickening to think ...

... and we could see why this translates to "endless plane".
Soon we were completely surrounded by animals as far as the eye could see, mainly wildebeest. This was part of the great migration they go through every year where millions of them follow the rain patterns, literally towards greener pastures. There were thousands of them as well as a few types of gazelle, zebra, and our first hyaena sighting.
