9th– Serengeti (B, L, D)
Satellite Track My Journey
After Breakfast move toward Serengeti National Park passing through Ndutu and southern part of Serengeti. Picnic lunch is served on the way. When you reach Serengeti you will game drive en-route to katikati tented Camp and settle into the wild. Continue with another game drive before you return to your lodge to watch the African sunset until dinner and fall the sounds of nature–w i l d .
Katikati tented camp
As you know, there is minimal wifi on the mountain, so this post is posted on the proposed date of the climb (as well as subsequent posts). I will have an update below for when we return with added tidbits.

We left Arusha and our very cute Karama lodge & spa and headed for Lake Manyara and Ngorogoro Crater. We saw a giraffe eating from an acacia tree (“cloud tree”) and Baboons at entrance to Lake Manyara
At Ngorogoro conservation area, we saw:
Baboons, Masai kids, eland (largest of all antelopes and gazelles), tawny eagle eating prey, helmeted guineafoul, Thompson gazelle, ostrich, wildabeast, golden jackal, zebras and calves, water buffalo, blue heron, warthog (Pumba), hippos (and mating!), pride of lions, black rhino and baby, kori bustard (largest flying bird), gray crowned crane (national bird of Uganda), blacksmith , sacred ibis, female water buck, and elephant. It was such a lucky viewing day!!
After the drive thru the crater, we checked into the Ngorogoro sopa lodge which was a really nice welcome. We had a view of the terrain from our room!! It was spectacular. Looking forward to what tomorrow will bring.
