Day 6 (Mweka Hut/Camp to Mweka Park Gate to Moshi) is done, and everyone is back safe and sound at the hotel in Moshi. As mentioned in yesterday’s BLOG, everyone woke up, packed up their daypacks and porter bags, ate breakfast, and hiked the final 3 hours to Mweka Park Gate. Sean signed everyone off the mountain, everyone got in the vans, and off to the hotel in Moshi they went. Once at the hotel and after a long awaited warm shower, everyone just relaxed around the hotel before calling it a night.
Tomorrow is Day 1 (Moshi to Lake Manyrar) of the Serengeti Safari, and we normally do not BLOG as often and as in much detail as we do during the Kili portion of the trip. It’s more or less riding around the Serengeti in a Land Rover trying to find the Big 7, but we’ll try to post daily (or at least every other day) where they have been, what they most likely have seen, and what they have reported back. You can still send them text messages to the satellite phone, and after everyone gets back from the day’s safari, cleaned up, and ate dinner at the hotel Sean downloads the day’s messages.
Sean did not relay any satellite phone text messages today, but we can give a shout out and thanks to VICKY HAYDEN and SHANNA PREVOST for their generous Crowdrise donations! Sean and the CancerClimber Association depend on donations to be able to continuing doing what they are doing, and thank you Vicky & Shanna for all your support!
