Trip Report Trip Report - Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Namibia (with photos and videos)

Jump to last reply

Here's a trip report from our 3+ week trip to Africa. We visited Mt Kilimanjaro (Lemosho route, with western breach ascent), Serengeti (Singita Mara River Camp), and three places in Namibia (Kulala Desert Lodge, Serra Cafema, and Ongava Tented Camp), plus short stops in Kenya, South Africa, and Angola. Highlights of the trip included:

*successfully climbing Mt Kilimanjaro
*15 separate cheetah sightings (12 separate animals)
*14 separate rhino sightings (11 separate animals, 8 white and 3 black)
*5 separate Mara River crossings by the wildebeest
*ATVing through the sand dunes in northern Namibia
*climbing a good deal of the way up "Big Daddy" in Sossusvlei
*meeting some of the nicest and friendliest people we will ever meet

Hopefully this can be of use to those of you planning a trip to Africa, or those of you who just need something to kill some time on a Wednesday at work.
