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.

It's our final day and we have mixed feelings. The trip has been incredible and the number of animals and the close proximity has been amazing. But we have been gone a long time and we are ready to go home.
We had one final morning of day of wildlife viewing. We still ha vent' seen a cheetah. That would be nice but we won't be too sorry if …
Today we had a change of pace and drove out of the National Park to Lake Victoria, the second largest fresh water lake in the world. Lake Superior is the biggest. We took our time to watch wildlife along the way. It was pretty good viewing.
Our destination was a small village on the shores of the Lake where a group of Scuma people live. …
After the great success we had yesterday I didn't think there would be anything else to see. I was wrong.
On our morning game drive we were looking for lion, but no luck. The new animal of the day is the Topi, a majestic antelope much bigger than the gazelles we frequently see. We stopped to watch giraffes near the road. Then the drivers …
I hated leaving Ngorongoro. It would be great to spend one more day there. But the crown jewel was just a few hours ahead - The Serengeti.
We passed some cool giraffes munching on small acacia trees on the way to Oldupai Gorge. The gorge isn't particularly scenic, but it is well know as the place that Louis and Mary Leakey discovered the …
... drive to Tarangire National Park. It was a much smoother drive, only small segments of dirt road. It was interesting to see pass through a number of Maasai villages. The Maasai still live in very simple mud and straw huts, they are nomadic, and still wear simple robes instead of wester clothes. The robes are always red or blue. Our driver told us that many years ago the Maasai moved to east Africa from the ...
