Tucan Travel - Safari & Beach Tour Day 8 – 10
So yeah, the Serengeti was absolutely mind-blowing! The trees, the wildlife, the scenery – I could not have imagined it to be more beautiful. The game drive lasted all morning and for lunch we returned to our campsite from the night before. After we had finished eating we drove out of the Serengeti NP and on to our second campsite which was right at the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. You could tell we were at a certain altitude but we wouldn’t stay up here long enough to develop any symptoms of altitude sickness. It was just for one night. Our tents were again already put up for us and all I had to do was grab a comfy mat and roll out my sleeping bag. There were kitchen and dining room facilities and restrooms – with warm showers! Oh the joy of not having to use baby wipes but actually being able to have a relatively hot shower! And there were toilets too... only non-western ones. Ah well, I got away with not having to use them so far but I knew sooner or later I’d have to. Luckily this was the only time on this trip and let’s just say with a bit of practice it’s all do-able and it’s a great thigh workout ;)
The next morning we packed up and went down into the Ngorongoro Crater for an epic game drive. The landscape was again different from the Serengeti: hardly any trees, instead endless
meadows of wildflowers and high grass... oh nature's beauty! *sigh*
This would be our last safari on this trip and sadly tonight we’d already be back in Arusha. We went for dinner in a local restaurant with our group and back at the hotel we packed and re-packed again for the next day when we’d fly to Zanzibar!
If you ever find yourself flying anywhere from the metropolis of Arusha, this is what you should prepare for (yep, that’s the airport!):
See you in Zanzibar! :)
