Where I stayed
The lodge was beautiful! Why we couldn't stop to have lunch here was beyond us - they were setting it up for lunch and it all looked absolutely delectible. All we had to look forward to was our boxed lunches again. Definitely have to suggest having lunch here instead for future safaris - I'm sure people wouldn't mind paying for lunch here instead of putting up with a boxed lunch again (two days in a row).
There were a couple of nice shops at the lodge which of course I had to investigate. The best shop of all - The Tanzanite Experience
I was in heaven. The only problem was that there were so many gems to look at, so little time. I tried to rush as much as I could and finally decided on the gem I liked best. The rest of our travel companions I don't think were too happy with me holding them all up, but I couldn't pass up the only opportunity I had had the whole trip to look and purchase an African tanzanite. Besides, it was the day after my 40th birthday - I was entitled to a small treat, wasn't I?????
