Well, after almost a month I resume my blog again!
What a trip we had. There were a few little challenges but basically we got everywhere on time and on the right day. We saw the mountain gorillas (here is a small enticement for you--a one-year-old baby, one of twins).
We got to Tanzania and met up with our safari crew (our driver/guide and our cook) on 1/19, and took off for our wild animal experience. We first visited Manyara National Park.There was a beautiful lake there and we saw our first lion. The second and third days we were on the Serengetti Plain, the last day were down inside the Ngorongoro Crater. "The jewel in Ngorongoro's crown is a deep, volcanic crater, the largest un flooded and unbroken caldera in the world. About 20kms across, 600 meters deep and 300 sq kms in area, the Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtaking natural wonder." Part of our time near the crater was spent with a village of Maasai people. Photos to follow. See map below for area of Tanzania we visited. More to follow.
