That’s a Wrap!
We just heard from Tye that the team is resting comfortably at The Farm House, our luxury safari lodge just outside Ngorongoro Crater. They had a fantastic last day on safari. Woke up at Ndutu Safari Lodge and hit the road towards the Crater, with a quick stop at Oldupai Gorge. Oldupai is where some of the oldest human remains have been found. It’s really neat to learn about the history of this region and our mutual ancestors! A couple more hours brought the team to one of the highlights of the safari, if not the entire trip. Ngorongoro Crater is home to a massive concentration of all types of wildlife. It’s always a tough place to leave as it’s so full of animals. Finally they made their way up out of the Crater and over to some very comfortable accommodations for their last night. The team was getting ready for their final meal together. I know they’ll have some amazing stories to swap. Tomorrow they will make their way back to Arusha – no doubt stopping for some souvenir shopping along the way – and on to the airport for their flights home. I can’t think of a more successful and fun trip. They had 100% of the team summit Kili together and they saw incredible wildlife on the Serengeti. Can’t really top that.
Congrats again to the team on an amazing summit of Kilimanjaro. As the long rainy season starts to set in over in East Africa we take a break from Kili climbs until summer. We have a full load of summer and fall Kilimanjaro trips lined up starting in June. Some with a few spots left, so don’t wait to sign up! And check out Tye’s portfolio of animal photos he forwarded.
