Our last journey of our Amazing African adventure was in the Serengeti. We spent 3 days here and went on several more safari drives.
|This is the hotel room we stayed in 2 rooms at the bottom and a top room above. We are facing out into the plains of the serengeti|
|At this hotel every evening after dinner they had African musicians perform some traditional music|
|dancers and even acrobatics|
|The Serengeti was so different from the other places in Tanzania we had explored. While the majority of the Serengeti is a vast plain there are many small rocky sites called Kopjes. In fact according to our driver here is where they got the vision for the Pride rock for Lion King. In fact somewhere in my thousands of pictures I have the rock that was the inspiration for Pride rock, unfortunately I can't find it or else I took so many pictures of rock outcrops that I can't tell one from another:(|
|These Kopjes are home to many different wildlife. Here we found very colorful lizard that my kids loved to see.|
|There are no paved roads here only dirt rocky paths but every once in a while you see a sign in the middle of no where.|
|another road sign|
|Another rather unusual site in the middle of the Serengeti a rest stop and rest room. Restrooms were of the very basic model.|
|Every evening between 5:30 and 6 pm at the hotel outdoor bar the bush babies would appear, leaping and jumping from the trees. They were so fun to watch.|
|Unfortunately it was time to head home and we took this little bush plane from the Serengeti back to Arusha to await our flight home. My kids were amazed at the size of the plane!|
|The Serengeti from the air and a lone road. We were sad to go.|
This is just a small section of the animals we saw I didn't repeat animals I have already posted about. I came home with over 5000 pictures which my husband now has to tag:) It was so hard to pick the best of every animal as I had so many fabulous pictures. This was our trip of a lifetime and while we had a couple of bumps in the road (kids getting sick) it was absolutely amazing and I may never be able to go to a zoo or safari (in England/states) ever again. It has been nearly 3 weeks since we returned and we are still looking at our pictures and talking about our amazing adventure.
