Serengeti.....or bust!

Serengeti…..or bust!

Our current address is:

Tents 1, 2,3,&4, Wogakurya e-site 1,  Kogatende, Serengeti North. (Tanzania). We came to this point via Migori, then by mini (mini) bus, via the border control Kenya, then no-mans’-land, to immigration Tanzania, then the local ATM for my guests who had run out of dollars(the aircraft had landed by now…..) the kindly shop-keeper who had his feet up for lunch who gave me small change for the ATM bills….and then mini-mini bus in a hurry for 12km, and another flight to the gravel airstrip, and a two hour game drive.  Nearly needed more punctuation.

Warm, comfortable and welcoming..

A great welcome from the camp staff, most of whom are old acquaintances of mine as this is my fourth visit this year alone!  Mussa welcomed us and gave us the camp orientation and safety briefing, before we shambled off to our respective tents and finally unpacked. The view from my tent is superlative, and the distances between the tents ensures some privacy too.

Hot shower, rest, drinks and dinner, with some fire time for reflection before bed.            A leopard called from way below camp as I snuggled down in my  oh-so-comfortable-double bed, warmed by the presence of a hot-water bottle. Nice chap, David, my tent steward.

I had made the rather puerile error of having a cup of coffee liberally supported by a slug of Amarula…and as a consequence was wide awake at two am….some of us are slow to learn.    Tea eventually arrived at 0630am……a cheery ‘Jambo, Gavin’.
