Mt. Kilimanjaro: Hahn & Team Enjoy a Slower Pace As They Begin on Safari

Talk about shifting gears… we went from climbing to cruising, just like that.  Today we got on the road shortly after 8 AM and briefly toured the outskirts of Arusha before heading out across the Rift Valley of Tanzania.  Our goal for the day was a tour of the the Lake Manyara National Park.  To get there we traveled in two modified land rovers, gazing out the windows at Masai tribesmen and their animal herds along the highway.  We reached the park at about noon and had a relaxing lunch under the big trees, keeping an eye peeled on the surrounding forest for whichever beasts might also be contemplating lunch.  As it turned out, there were just a few monkeys and birds checking us out.  After lunch, we toured the park’s dirt roads, checking out giraffes, baboons, zebras, wildebeest and warthogs.  We spied a couple of elephants and plenty of exotic birds, but we didn’t see big cats or hippos.  There is always tomorrow… which for us is an expedition to the Ngorongoro Crater.  Tonight though, is not to be rushed.  An evening at the luxurious and tranquil Plantation Lodge.  We’ll get in our open topped safari vehicles again at the crack of dawn, hunting for big game.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
