Journal Entry:
Have breakfast, then head back to the lake. Not many animals. Get gear on to truck at hotel, wait for some others that are supposed to be joingin us, but they never show. Drive to Ngorongoro Crater. have lunch on the crater rim - very cold and foggy - so we can't see much of the ledgendary floor below. Drive to Serengeti through some incredible desolate land. Enter Serengeti through the Naabi Hill Gate. See lots of Zebra, ostrich, tons of different antelope, and a couple large pythons. Drop Lois off at a very nice hotel lodge that she had always wanted to stay at so had splurged. The rest of us head off to camp. See a lion right before getting to camp. The campsite is packed - there must be 150 tents in a very small area. Set up our tents - luckily I have my own as the two tents that the company supplied are soo bad that they have to be cannibalized to make one for Terry and Aretha - and it's not very stable or mosquito proof. Had a fantastic diner, and then played cards - Terry and I taught Aretha and Mohamed (the cook) Shithead.
