We left the Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge today and traveled to Tarangire National Park.  We stopped for a lunch in the bush and were treated to a delicious outdoor meal.  Our excitement for the afternoon was a dust devil, a very small tornado looking weather feature, that could have spoiled our great meal.  Tarangire has one of the highest concentrations of elephant and it did not disappoint today.  We saw a few new species that we hadn’t seen at the crater and got great views of two large male lions.  The weather has been partly cloudy with a light wind which as made for a perfect safari set up keeping us and the animals cool from the hot African sun. 

We are now at the Kikoti Camp located just outside Tarangire National Park.  We will be spending our last evening in Tanzania enjoying a great dinner followed by a bonfire in the courtyard of the hotel listening to the sounds of the African night.
