Andy and his team called in EARLY (my time) this morning from the Serengeti. Andy has led a lot of Kilimanjaro climbs and he’s been on the same number of safaris but he sounded extra excited this morning. Apparently, the short rains of the normal fall season have come a bit early this year. Result is the ‘greening’ of the Serengeti and animals everywhere. Two large giraffes had just walked through their camp and they were settling down for a nap after a day of game viewing which Andy said was simply incredible. Twice he said, “I can’t believe the number of animals we’re seeing”. And, sounds like the camps are a huge hit with this team. “Way nicer than staying only in lodges” was the comment. I got the feeling that this group is seriously into their safari experience. Plenty of Motel 6’s in the rest of the world. This is EAST AFRICA!
