Maasai Night

Arrived to the Maasai, Lyzza Clan of 300 to 400. Here I am greated by the Chief and a few of his sons. He has 8 wives. He is a famous Medicine Man.

The tall one is my host, Saitoti, who will become chief when his father passes. Yep, he’s killed a lion but, it was with a spear and because the lion was killing his cattle.

Between this photo and drinking Ballentines with an elder much later, you will not believe what happens. You’ll have to hear that story (and see the footage if you can stomach it) in person someday.

A night in the boma then a morning watching the women milk the cows then we were on our way.

Soon to leave Tanzania behind. A quick shower and breakfast at the Rift Valley Lodge then the long trip to the airport. I seem to recall First Friday is on this weekend back home.

Mt. Kilimanjaro Time

Leaving the animals behind…most of them anyway, it is time for Kilimanjaro.

A bit anxious I’d say. Just heard from a summit'r it was -22 up top this AM.

I had a great week with my new TZ friends. I’ll see Josh in 9 days. Hopefully, to celebrate and then prepare for my overnight with a Maasai family out in the broad savannah somewhere.

Not gonna be updates until I’m off the Mtn. so I’ll load what I can today.

Cheers!

Just dinner in the Serengeti

Dinner: Eating cream of lentil soup and oh yes, 25 yards from me…in the pitch dark…is the very dangerous buffalo (more so than their USA cousins, these guys kill lions). - You can’t see or read the “pause” that just happened, as is MOVED in the night- I dont know if the soldier with the AK 47 makes me feel any more safe since, when I hear the buffalo, I dont see him around.

Serengeti

With the first week half over, we prepare for Ngorongoro Crater.

I had a Serengeti massage in the open air with only a small wooden barrier between us and the nature that’s surrounding. Getting my legs ready for the big Kili trek the starts in few days after standing on game drives for hours and getting beat around. Hard to relax though when you worry about tsetse flies and mosquitoes in the middle of the day.

I also got Joshua a massage, he said it was a first. Tommy, he’s a bit shy.

50+ lions and giraffes, 100’s of Elephants, warthogs, baboons and buffalo, 3 cheetahs, 2 leopards, 20+ hyenas and hippopotamususus, 1000’s of zebra, gazelles and various other small creatures, 1 jackel and other things that are wild.

I’m ready to bring family and friends here just for the game drives (upscale of course), you dont have to hike Kilimanjaro or go as rough as I do. More on that once I experience the Mountain.

Spent last night coming up with a “Poa Poa” (look it up) jingle with Joshua and Tommy for Pamoja (means TOGETHER) Safaris, while listening African rhythms.
Cheers!

PreAfrica

People often ask me, “Hey Domino, how do you pack for these adventures? ”

Well, each epic is special in its own right but I always have my Tin Cup Chalice.

Here’s where I stand 48 hours before leaving for Africa. (The clothes line is me Permethrin'izin me garmets)

One more personal “shake down” of my gear to lighten the load a we bit further and, I’m ready! (You really don’t need a lot and I’ve too much). CHEERS
