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.

Anyway, we finally got to the firepit and got to chat with some of the other guests. There were some great people and we really enjoyed ourselves. Leslie from Chicago was really cool and was really positive about the fact that we'd see a crossing. Jane from New Jersey had her whole family with her and they were really nice.

We watch for forty five minutes as the lioness sizes up group after group of zebras entering her trap. Many groups have young foals seemingly perfect for the lone lioness. Still, she waits…and waits.

Stress of the Day : Hoping we didn't have to pee during the night. Having to pee at night and taking the 100 meter walk to the toilet by yourself (but me being a man I wasn't scared).
Travel day and fishing village. We woke up at 5:45 to leave the Serengeti at 7 am. We stopped at the fishing village on Lake Victoria. This is the second largest lake in the world after Lake Michigan. The lake fs the one that flows to the Nile ...
