The Serengeti, June 5, 2006

Waking to the sounds of hyena at 4:45, we shot out of bed so that we could get going real early this morning to catch a 'Serengeti Sunrise' down at a watering hole. Without a doubt - it was spectacular! From here we set off to see the migration, wow, it was incredible, it was out in full force this morning. Our early afternoon game run was really good too - more of the migration, we were fully surrounded by it, it really is an awesome part of nature's cycle. A full day was topped off by sundowners on a kopje (literally!) with some stone etchings. An incredible day indeed!

I actually made it up on that kopje - with the help of two guides and a walking cane!
