In Serengeti - Guest Post by Kaylee Guetle

Tonight is our last night in the Serengeti and tomorrow we're off to Ngorongoro Crater. We've been able to see some great animals including some of the rarer spotted ones like cheetah and leopard. We were lucky enough to get up close with some lions - close to 20!

Our campsite is located right in the middle of Serengeti National Park so we have had some visitors in the middle of the night, lions and tigers and bears oh my! Except not tigers or bears.. but lions and hippos. We have camp staff escort us to and from our tents at night.

Tomorrow we're getting up early to go on a morning game drive, hoping to see some animals we wouldn't normally see. In just a few short days most of you - family members following this blog - will be reunited with these wonderful people I've had the privilege of knowing. But for Allison and I, it will be a little bit longer. We will be staying behind for ten days to go back to the MAD House and teach the Kilimanjaro kids about various alternatives to plastic burning and malaria awareness.


Stumbled upon 4 lion cubs and their mother.

Typical tourists.
