Safari!

Which means long journey or expedition in Swahili, and boy what an adventure we had. Back at the end of February we spent four days bumping along dirt tracks, being enveloped in dust and watching more and more bits fall off our jeep.

On the first day we got up early

To take in an awesome view of Ngorogoro crater

Then we drove to the Serengeti national park and popped the top of the still largely intact jeep

We found out that the trees in the Serengeti aren’t like trees in other places

They have leopards hiding in them!

We stopped for lunch on high ground so lions couldn’t eat us

We spent the afternoon spotting more wildlife

After a good night’s sleep we got up early again to watch the sunrise

We drove back through the Serengeti to Ngorogoro crater and saw (very small) rhinos

We left Ngorogoro crater just before a storm came in and soaked all the other tourists

It was thanks to our awesome driver and guide Ben that we spotted all of this amazing wildlife

And the car didn’t really break that much – in four days there was a passenger door that wouldn’t stay closed, a flat tyre, loss of a lot of axle fluid and the shearing of one of the metal roof supports. Just a normal amount of broken stuff for Tanzania!

    As per usual it looks as though you’re having an absolutely awful time and seeing nothing interesting. I am in no way horrendously bitter or jealous. X
