Wow!

Really WOW! For those who aren't familiar with the area, this is the main road between Ngorongoro and Serengeti so everyone not flying in/out will be affected by this on transfer days.

We've crossed this thrice in moderately high water and I always wondered what people do when it's high ... I guess you wait and hope it subsides.

Carol and I were soooo lucky on our recent trip since it stopped raining about 10 days before we arrived and started back up a day or so after we left.

whohw! I was very lucky then (as was Bill), we hardly had any rain.

I heard Suyan (in the Gol Mountains) is hard to reach / not reachable at all as well at this moment..

Wow and to think this time last year they were desperate for rain...I guess it never rains but it pours..... I was envious of how green it looked in Bill_H's photos, thinking I'd chosen the wrong year (migration was late due to the drought last year etc etc) but now I hear this...what a nightmare for those folks stuck by Olduvai.
