Kilimanjaro: The Kilimanjaro Family Climb Returns From The Mountain

Hello from the Dik Dik.  This is Seth with a quick check in letting you know this we are all off the mountain safe and sound.  We had a nice walk down from our last camp this morning and we’re back at the hotel before 1pm.  After some well deserved showers we had a great celebratory dinner.  Now were all psyched up for our safari.  That’s starts tomorrow with a visit to Lake Manyara.  We’ll check in after our game drive.

Kilimanjaro: The Kilimanjaro Family Climb Begins Their Safari

Jambo from Lake Manyara!  We’ve just finished a great afternoon game drive.  The elephants were out in full force today.  We got extremely close to several of the amazon creatures.  Another highlight of the day was seeing several baboon and monkey babies.  All in all it was a great first day on safari.

RMI Guides Peter Whittaker and Seth Waterfall

Now you can all relax and really enjoy yourself! Must be beautiful actually seeing the animals in their natural habitat. Sam take lots of pictures of those giraffes.

Kilimanjaro: Enjoying The Safari at Ngorongoro Crater

This is Seth checking in from Ngorongoro Crater.  We’ve been having a spectacular day of game viewing.  The main event was getting to see two lions, one male, one female, right next to the road.  We have also seen tons of other stuff.  Tonight we’re staying at the Plantation Lodge and tomorrow we will visit Tarangire National Park.
