Day of flight to the land of mankind. After arriving we boarded a small plane to the Serengeti Sopa Lodge. On the drive in we encountered animals jumping in our path, including a water buffalo and hyena. We quickly headed into our room, netted in comfort, for a good nights sleep.
The next morning we ate a beautiful buffet breakfast overlooking the Serengeti. The most incredible lecture was given by Louise Leakey regarding her family history and involvement in the search and discovery of human origins in Africa. What a woman, what a family, what an inspiration. After the lecture who wouldn’t be ready to hit the road and discover Africa.
I do not know how to describe the amazing journey into the wild. This is not a zoo, not an exotic pet store, this is wild and free. Habitat earth at its best, at its beast! Oh, did I forget the open air lunch on the Serengeti…
Next stop, Luxor, Egypt.
