Kilimanjaro: Hahn & Team Finish Their Safari at Tarangire National Park

After a peaceful night at the Kikoti Lodge just East of the Tarangire National Park boundary, we had breakfast and ducked back into the park.  As experienced safari aficionados, we no longer stopped the vehicles for common zebras and wildebeest.  But we were happy to pull over to watch a monitor lizard cross the road.  And seeing a lion guarding his fresh kill got our attention.  The king of the savannah also got the attention of about twenty elephants on their way to the water.  They trumpeted and snorted when they sensed his presence and -giving him some space, took a detour to reach the water.  We saw a few thousand other animals and birds, baobab trees and acacias on our way back out to the main park exit.  Then it was Tanzanian highway driving with a few stops for tourism and sightseeing on the way back to Arusha and the Dik Dik Hotel.  All that remains now is a dinner together and a few shuttles to the airport over the next 24 hours as we split up and begin to circle the globe toward home.

It has been a chock full couple of weeks in Africa.  Thank you for keeping track of our team!

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
