Our flight from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro was on a small propeller plane they are widely used here and was certainly a bit different but we got there in one piece, an hour drive to the hotel and finally got to bed.

Next morning was the start of our 2 night, 3 day safari into Tarangire National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater.

After a 3 hour drive to the park we were only inside 5 mins before we saw a group of 15 or so elephants bathing in a swamp and one giant elephant stopped in front of our vehicle shook his head at us and made a noise, we were standing up in the back of the truck and both of us just froze it was only a few meters away from us and was massive.  It decided to just feed on the tree instead as we watched on.  This was the case many times today the animals get so close to the vehicle - truly amazing day.

Got to our lodge that night few beers watching the sun go down with the most amazing view

Perfect end to a great day.
