27th August - Serengeti

We stayed at our pre-booked Tented camp “Wild Frontiers” camp - Makoma 2. Awesome loads of lions, cheetah Ellies, Giraffe, buffaloes, but again no Leopard. We took a look at the Seronera public camp sites( I think there are 4 camps) because we had read a lot of articles and were told of absolutely diabolical ablutions in Serengeti as a whole. We were pleasantly surprised as they were clean and neat, and hence the reason we stayed in the Tented camp at huge expense. The ablution blocks did not look old either, so maybe they have cleaned up there act a bit. Then we left to go to Maasai Mara in Kenya via Musoma. We camped on the beach on Lake Victoria at Tembo Hotel and Camp. It was hot and Colleen and I decided to take a swim. The water was clear but all the debris on the floor was distasteful, like tins and bottles left by the fishermen and others so we gave up on that one, but the setting was great with a stunning sunset. We were the only campers next to the Hotel – no overland back packers to bother us.
