      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.

      ... birds the last 2 days, but the prizes here have been a cheeta and her cub (which are very hard to find), and some beautiful male lions. Ed and Dean estimate we were 30-40 feet from them, which we felt was up close and personal! There have been several prides of lions who are usually sleeping and are not bothered by all the tourists surrounding them to take pictures. Our lion count as of today is up to 78. Yesterday, we saw part ...

      ... warriors. These are pre-adolescent or older boys who act as guards of the villages. In the past, other tribes stole the Maasai cows, and the junior warriors job was to prevent that. In order to be a junior warrior, the boys are circumcised. They must watch the entire procedure and cannot show any sign of pain or shed a tear. This is to demonstrate their bravery. To shed a tear or show pain would bring great shame onto the family and village. It's heartbreaking. They wear ...

      We have now been two nights in the Serengeti National Park. The park is approx. 15'000km2 (1/3 of Switzerland!) and home to a huge variety of wildlife.The biggest attraction at this season is the wildebeest migration.About 3 million animals need to cross the Mara River, infested with huge (up to 1 ton) crocodiles, to reach the northern plays of the Masai Mara Park in Kenya. There they will spend a few months, gorging on the green grass and water, before returning around November, ...

      ... I believed the numbers of "Lion Food (Drivers nickname for Zebra and Wildebeest) were so thick that there was just a sea of animals all hooting and howling in a funny sort of bark at each other. We moved on and came across a pride of lion asleep under a tree after what must have been a big feed because they all had fat tummies and were zonked. I counted 9 lion here. We sat looking at them for ages. One lioness had a big bite out of her rear leg and a ...

We even heard the mother elephant's low throaty rumble to reassure her baby or to tell us to keep our distance. Whichever, it was an amazing sound. The rest of the day was spent driving around trying to find more wildlife. We did spot some leopards in trees, a lion resting on a branch of ...
