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.

We landed into Nairobi in Kenya. Still exhausted ( actually we've been exhausted now for so long that we can't remember what it's like to feel normal), we boarded our home for the next forty six days. A big massive Intrepid branded truck. This thing houses everything. Our food, water, cooking equipment, tents, chairs.... Everything! We successfully crossed the border from Kenya to Tanzania. After about an eight hour drive( and the ATM ...
... We then
headed straight for the Ngorongoro crater, seeing the plains which
were filled with Masai villages scattered along. You could see that
they were living off the land with herds of animals. However what
surprised me was a few groups would wait for cars and try and beg for
money. They also have mobile phones and sell jewellery. There
villages are fenced off with a few mud huts inside. We could of
stopped off in one but we thought the $50 was a bit steep so ...
... 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.
... observe them. As he wandered from one side of the track to the other he lazily slumped down in the shade of a huge tree, shading himself from our view.
We had entered the centre of the park where there was much more water and a lot more lush, green vegetation. Because of this all the animals gather together so it wasn’t long before we started seeing huge herds of zebra (a 'dazzle' of zebra) and a family of giraffe drinking from what little water ...
