Serengeti Stop over. Conveniently located 1km outside west gate of Serengeti to allow entrance to park at optimum time.
Tumbili camp at Seronera, access and pitch not best for roof top tent. Kitchen noisy. Dik Dik camp much better.
Wild camp in Ngorongoro conservancy an awesome experience. Call at Rangers post near Nduru Safari lodge to organise. Simba A on edge of crater excellent at bottom of field. firewood very expensive.
Kudu lodge and campsite at Karatu good site to east of Ngorongoro.
Milimani Cottages, Usa River 20 km east of Arusha, superb self catering cottages for a break after Serengeti. 4WD needed to reach them up 3km steep road.
Marangu hotel, campsite in pleasant grounds but space for only one roof top tent, then up short 45 degree slope.
White Parrot motel, Korogwe space for rooftop tent only in car park
Welcome to our Africa blog
We hope all our families and friends will log in from time to time to see how we're getting on - and just to touch base. We all know we shall miss everyone and this is one of the ways we hope to keep in touch. And, of course, we shall be logging on to Skype and emailing whenever we get the chance. This is a massive adventure for us all with a shed load of planning , but once you've fallen for Africa you just have to see more. So here we go!
