The Tanzanian Safar(i) So Good Epic: The Ngorongoro Crater » »

 

 

After an 8am breakfast this morning, we headed out at 9am for the famed Serengeti National Park for another game drive.

 

 

While waiting for our papers to clear at the entrance to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area entrance, a weird human attacked our jeep and tried to steal our shit:

 

 

Once cleared we drove 2 hours through the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

 

 

But leaving the highlands behind for another day, we entered the heart of wild Africa and cradle of humanity – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains rolling into infinity.

 

 

Once we entered we had a quick boxed lunch:

 

 

And then — at least with our luck — within 4 hours in the Seronera Valley of the Serengti we were able to see herds of giraffes:

  

 

Elephants:

 

 

Warthogs:

 

Hippos:

 

 

More weird humans:

 

 

Leopards:

 

 

And of course, the lion and king of the jungle, during which our car battery suddenly died! (we then asked the other jeeps around us push ours back as far away from the lions so we could restart it at a safe distance):

 

 

And finally, right before heading back we were lucky to catch one of the hardest animals to sight, the speedy cheetah:

 

 

Satisfied with our hunt, we drove onwards to Serengeti Katikati camp inside the Serengeti for dinner at 6pm.

 

 

Although the amazing part is that there’s wifi here and it actually works decently well, it costs a pretty penny to get higher data and speeds. Therefore I’m going to sign off right now with a short cogent blogpost and lower quality photos.

 

 

Check back in a few days for a few more updates! Tomorrow we tour the Ngorongoro Crater on our way back to Kilimanjaro.
