We are back to where we started, the Dik Dik Hotel.  We have just finished a wonderful photo safari in Tanzania visiting Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks.  We spent three nights in the African bush at two different tented camp lodges.  This is an incredible way to view the wildlife and experience the excitement of Africa.  Check out the photo below from our team mate Steve.  Steve took this photo from the Kikoti Camp on our last night in Tanzania.

Today, on our way back to the Dik Dik Hotel, we made a visit to a local orphanage to visit with our friends, drop some gifts for the children and check out the progress they are making on all of their projects.

Now we are back at the Dik Dik Hotel, repacking our gear and trying to fit all of our new treasures safely into our suitcase for the journey home.  We will have dinner and then head to the airport for our evening flights.

It has been a great trip and we appreciate you following along on our adventure.  I hope to see you on Mt. Rainier in September and if you are in Ashford drop by the Rainier Mountain Festival and say hello.

I have been in Mt Kilimanjaro with three groups of RMI, Two groups with Mr Mark Tucker, and one group with Seth Waterfal. I learned so much about guiding professional, RMI guides are real professional, they know well about the mountain and caring of clients. Their friendly and charming. The clients ware so cooperative to us. Dikdik crews are remembering RMI expeditions to Kilimanjaro. We are proud of RMI.  LONG LIVE RMI.
