Tanzanian Safari: Hiking into the Serengeti

After a “touristy” day in the crater yesterday, last night we went camping in a remote area outside the Maasai village of Ilmisigiyo. Some of the best moments from our trips are at times like these when you can get off the beaten path. And today is certainly a highlight as we hike for 6 to 8 hours over Mount Makarot and down to the south Serengeti plains. My parents have been preparing for this for months to make sure they are in the best shape. K had been working out at the gym. Perhaps I should have been doing the same. I hope I can keep up!

    I wish I were so fit :)

    Linen trousers and hiking shoes for this one…we hiked for 9 hours. 2 uphill and 7 down. Unfortunately, as a result, my knee was not happy. But at least there were giraffes (my favorite) at the end of the hike to greet us. :)
