There is nothing like a huge dormant volcano crater filled with animals to make for a fun day of safari. Chris Meder reports that the Kili team managed finish checking off The Big Five today, with a sighting of a rare Black Rhino down in the Crater. Yesterday they saw a couple of the Leopards (also hard to find) and along the way they have seen many Lions, Elephants, and Cape Buffalo. Tonight they are camped near the Crater Rim, at about 7,500 feet, so it is nice and cool. They are planning a big bonfire to get in touch with their primeval side.
Tomorrow it is back to Arusha and the wonders of international air travel.
Well done, team!
