The Cater to Serengeti

A travel blog entry by jimhilbert


... ask whether the roads make the result worthwhile. You become serenaded by the beauty of the place but there is a price to get here to enjoy it.

This lodge turns its power off twice per day so we arrive to no power and no internet again. We go straight to lunch and not surprising the lunch is delicious we had steak and chips and I also had the soup of the day. A quick rest in the room before we go on yet another game ride to see what we can see. Two days ...

Kipili to Katavi

... However, the brakes are very low and we can only proceed at a snails pace. We arrive in the dark and proceed to Jacobsens Beach campsite just outside of Kigoma.

The monkeys are also a bit of a nuisance and we ...

We caught a boat to Prison Island the following day where we saw the giant tortoises who love having their necks rubbed, we visited the old prison which is now a hotel and snorkelled just off Prison Island and saw ...

Serengeti nightmare & Zanzibar dream!

A travel blog entry by heidiyoung

... in the morning Phil reported that elephant & bush pigs had been in the camp that night & sure enough there was elephant dung 20 yards from our tent, eek! On safari we found the big cats & saw Rhino, 20 hippos all wallowing happily in the waterhole, they do an Eskimo roll every few minutes to get their back wet & it's a funny site watching their little stubby legs in the air one after the other. We watched as a baby wildebeest had just been born & tried to get up on it's feet. ...

    Decent place to stay, food a bit too ambitious, the rest is great!
