The next morning I departed by scheduled flight to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. I was met by my guide Hillary Mandia and we drove to the Ngorongoro Crater.
We drove through pockets of the migrations at least three time – all of which we were the only vehicle around surrounded by wildebeest and zebra. One of the highlights of the Serengeti was the hot air balloon ride over the plains. The champagne bush breakfast at the end of the balloon ride was excellent.

From the Serengeti we drove to Lake Manyara and stayed at the Lake Manyara Serena - amazing views of the lake below. The next morning we game drove through the park and passed through Mto Wa Mbu village. The village is real slice of Africa. My last stop was Tarangire Park. I loved this park. Where else can you unzip the front of your elevated tent and watch the sun go down over the Rift Valley Wall from the comfort you bed – sherry in hand.
