Day 7 – 10 – Exploring Western and Central Serengeti

We stayed at Lahia for three nights. During the days we headed out in different directions to look for wildlife. We saw many leopards, lions, hippos, giraffes, birds… On the last night staff treated us to a sundowner on the next hill over, where the owners house is located. They had enough alcohol and snacks for an army, but there were only three of us – Kathy, Michael and me, and, of course, the Maasai guard.

On day 9 we left Lahia for two nights at the Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge – owned by the same company. You will see the similarities in accommodations. Our lodge was almost the last one away from the main lodge. A guard was required for trips to the main lodge at night. There were many guests at Kubu Kubu and the Central Serengeti is much busier so you see many more safari trucks – and they are not all well behaved. Unfortunately on day 9, the travelers friend Montezuma hit me. That did make the drive back toward Arusha a bit dicey.

There are many photos in this album – accommodations up front, then animals. A few photos and animals surprised me – either I mis identified the animals initially or didn’t remember taking the photo at all!
