Safari

Just returned back to Arusha after a great 5 day safari. We saw literally hundreds of elephants in Tarangire National Park on Wednesday. Have seen 40 lions, 10 Cheetahs, some Leopards, and thousands and thousands of Zebras, Wildebeest, Impala, Antelope. Saw everything so that was great. We had a great driver who was really helpful and friendly. Also we saw Lions mating, so that was pretty much the highlight for me. We got extremely close to almost everything, including the lions. Tommorow morning we catch an 8 flight to Dar and then we will get the noon ferry over to Stone Town, Zanzibar. Stay in Zanzibar until Friday, with atleast one day at the beach and then I will be leaving Tanzania on Friday getting back to Jacksonville late Saturday if I get a standby seat or midday Sunday otherwise. Definitely having a great time with the parents and they enjoy that I can barter for things and get annoyed at being ripped off for being a goofy white man. haha. Be back soon, not sure if Im ready to go, but it will be an interesting change for sure.
