Phunuru Sherpa reports the final day of safari was a good one! The team left Ndutu this morning and visited Olduvai Gorge and the Maasai village on the way to Ngorongoro Crater. They hit the jackpot shortly after arriving down in the Crater, when the rhino made a guest appearance, walking quite close to the vehicle (this is rare, as the rhinos are quite shy and are usually hard to get close to). Along the way they also saw a leopard, which is also quite difficult to spot since they are often in the trees! This makes the last of the Big Five (lion, elephant, rhino, cape buffalo, leopard) for the team to have seen. Now they are all settled into their luxury lodge for a final night in Tanzania. Tomorrow they’ll take an easy morning, then head back to Arusha for final shopping and packing, before heading to the airport. It sounds like it’s been a great trip, well done team!
