Serengeti National Park-Africa

Our final days in Africa were spent in the Serengeti.  The Serengeti, meaning endless plains host the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world which help secure it as one of the Seven Natural Wonders Of Africa and one of the Ten Natural Travel Wonder Of The World.  It is also renowned for its large lion population.

The guides call him MGM, I call him The King!

Other than the lionesses sleeping under the tree, there is also one sleeping on the bottom left branch in the tree.

No matter where I go I will always find a Coca'Cola.

We stopped at a very r-o-m-a-n-t-i-c coffee plantation for lunch.

Day rooms were provided in Arusha since our flight didn't leave until 9pm.

This is where we said goodbye to Ricky.  There wasn't a question he couldn't answer.  He showed Stone and I the Big Five and so much more.  I told Ricky that I had wanted to come to Africa since I was a little girl and now that I am here I'm not ready to leave.  He said the reason is, "you've finally come home."  Well, I'll say that got me a little teary eyed.
