Serengeti Trip 2011 | The Final Chapter

And so an adventure of a lifetime comes to an end. Today was our last full day on the Serengeti Trip 2011 and the feeling in camp Ji-and-Villiers was part sadness, because we only have one day left on the road, and part joy, because tomorrow we’ll be home! It was a treat to sleep in this morning in an air-conditioned room and it took us ages to become fully mobile.

Thanks again to every single person who followed the blog, left a comment, gave us advice, support and sms’s, hosted us during the trip or sponsored satphone data or a piece of equipment. You helped to make the Serengeti Trip 2011 a huge success!

Serengeti Trip 2011 | A Relaxed Day in the Bay

Welcome to the Serengeti Trip series of blog posts! This series of posts covers the planning, packing and progress of a massive 70-day trip through 6 African countries early in 2011.

Today was one of the most relaxing days so far on the Serengeti Trip 2011 and that’s the way we planned it. After two days of being stranded next to the road we decided to spend my birthday in stunning Nkhata Bay on the shore of Lake Malawi. For the first time in some days we slept in and then slowly made our way down to the bar where we treated ourselves to full English breakfasts.

I wish we had a selection of excellent and interesting wildlife photos to post today, but instead you’ll have to be content with photos of us making the arduous journey down to Dodoma. It took us the best part of six hours to cover a 250 km-stretch of gravel road!
