The main road through the Serengeti is awful. It is corrugated earth and restricts your speed to less than 20mph. If you go any faster the back of the car seems to become predominant and you start to spin. The safari drivers hurtle past at 50mph. On quizzing them I discovered their vehicles are 2 wheel drive with an option to engage 4 wheels if needed.
Our next hotel was Olduvai Camp, we arrived at 3.40, there was no one around, the bar was fully stocked but no barman, there was no evidence of a reception, we walked right round the place and it was deserted. Eventually someone turned up and we were welcomed and shown our tent. Much like all the up market permanent tent hotels. Before dinner we had a walk with a “Massi Warrior” with his motor cycle tyre shoes and traditional mobile phone holder to the nearest hill where we watched the sun go down and I took a few sunset pictures.
Next day we visited the Oldivai gorge museum. This is the place where the Leaky's discovered the missing link between ape and man, in fact they found two branches of man, the smaller one became extinct.We then intended to do a circular drive on the roads shown on the map however it seems these roads are a figment of the cartographers imagination. To go into the gorge you need a guide, the other roads don't exist. Eventually we gave up and spent the afternoon in the camp.
