The camp-site rules are strict, because there are lions around
Nights are noisy in the Serengeti: lions, zebras, hyenas and monkeys. Most animals in Ngorongoro never leave the crater. In Mto Wa Mbu, meetings are held over a banana beer. A Masai village turns out to be built for tourists. Zanzibar is the home of many household spices. Looking for dolphins in little boats. 26 photos.
