Kisii and Serengeti National Park

December 11, 2011

It’s been a while since our last blog entry and we are now in fact a little behind with our blogging. Mike and I actually brought a local internet connect in Kenya which was meant to work in Tanzania however it only works in some places hence why we have fallen behind.

On the first day of our Intrepid tour we went through the great rift valley and then headed to Kisii a small town. The rift valley is not really what I expected. I thought it there would be no villages through the valley I just thought that it was a corridor that the animals crossed but there are Masai Villages all through the Rift Valley. It’s a very beautiful and interesting drive. We arrived in Kisii town in the late afternoon and stayed in a small dorm.  The following day we did a border crossing into Tanzania and then headed over to Lake Victoria where we spent our first night camping. We went for a ride through a local village. The response from the locals was a little hostile. Some waved and yelled our Jumbo which means hello in Swahili other spat at us. LOLSome of the local people were very happy to see us other not so. They didn’t wont to have their photo taken so there was little photo opportunities in this small town.

After our night at Lake Victoria we than headed over to the Serengeti. Our drive into the Serengeti was really amazing. It had just been raining so the animals were very active. We seen a male elephant wondering the plains by itself. There was lions, zebra and giraffe. We camped in the Serengeti in an unfenced camp site for two nights. It was a little scary the first night as you could hear the lions roaring and the hyena’s laughing at night. Mike and I awoke rather early one of the mornings to take a balloon ride of the Serengeti as the sun rose. It was amazing. The Serengeti is so vast… really beautiful!!! We flow over a hippo pond and seen various other animals.We than celebrated with an awesome breakfast in the middle of the Serengeti.

Mike and I have so many more stories to share already but we are about to leave our cabin and start our 6 day hike up and down Mount Kilimanjaro. We are very excited but also a little nervous. We are looking forward to sharing more photos with you all soon.
