Tales from the Serengeti - Episode 10: "OMG!"

Posted June 13th 2013 by: Bob House

I'm going to skip ahead to today since nothing exciting happened in Waso where we stayed in a hotel where the electricity was on for about two hours per night, the hot water for showers was delivered in a five-gallon buck outside our door, and the toilet was a hole in the ground.

We entered the Serengeti National Park at noon yesterday. We didn't drive more than a mile before we saw Impala and Wildebeests. It seemed like every mile brought us in contact with another animal, the type we've only seen in zoos. During our drive to the Research Center we saw giraffe, hippos, zebras, gazelles, impala, elephants, and crocodiles. We even saw a black mamba snake cross the road in front of us.

We arrived at the center about 6 p.m., just in time to have a cold Serengeti (beer) and to enjoy a much missed and very highly anticipated meal fixed by Yasinta (Eivin's cook). Yasinta greeted me as Samantha's father. Mama Dogo, another cook here at the camp, greeted me in the same manner. They both liked and enjoyed Samantha when she was here last year.

We ended the night on the porch having a whiskey with Eivin who plans to take us to Sundowner rock for beer tomorrow night. He said Samantha enjoyed that ritual while here.
