Day 3 of Safari

19 Feb
Day 3 of Safari – Ikoma Wildcamp


Drove through Ngorongoro Cons. Area yesterday. Stopped at Olduvai Gorge.

Arrived at Serengeti Nat’l Park after lunch.

Arrived at Ikoma Camp by sunset. Two options—camping and lodging. Lodges are mud huts with thatched roofs. Very cute!

Heard crunching sounds all night long though. Mike thinks it may have been the giant mantis we saw just before bedtime.

I'm typing up my notes from the trip and posting them with just some light editing. Each day will be a new post. (Some of these may not be much more than lists of animals we saw each day.)
