From Tanzania and cycling on to Kenya

The team had an awesome safari into Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania yesterday. Odey got a bit closer to a baboon than she intended; elephants and lions taking shade from the sun from a safari vehicle and a rare black rhino were highlights of the day. Paul helped the local safari driver change a tyre and they spotted giraffes on the way to the park. Today we will cross the border into Kenya and head across maasai country for the more rustic part of our journey... (Sorry we have not been able to post photos as have not been able to get them from the camera. We'll post a gallery when back in Nairobi).
Until then. Gemma, Baz & Joseph
