Ndutu always surprises me. Just before I arrived the rains came and the wildebeest returned. You could see them together with zebras everywhere - one day grazing on a plain only to disappear the next day to different pastures around Ndutu. The plains were green and full of little wild flowers. In the evenings, sitting around the fire, we watched flashes of lightening over the Serengeti, it seemed as if the thunder did not stop rolling along the horizon, and heard the noisy flamingos on Ndutu Lake. Of course all the big cats were at Ndutu, and Marando was again the perfect guide to track them. The female leopard near Marsh Track called her male, but he was shy and elusive. The seven lion cubs at Paradise Pond were taken out by their mothers every morning and evening and were a big attraction. We were also spoiled with cheetah cubs - moms with three, four (one killed by a hyena), three again, six on my last day. The most amazing mom was the cheetah with her five cubs - we saw her first at Long Gully when she took her cubs to the other side of the river into Frontier Forest - next we saw them at Olbarta Rock - we heard a week later that they were spotted at the Triangle - and finally, on my last day, we saw them with a kill at Ndutu near Big Marsh.

Salei was wonderful and relaxing, asanti Laura and Colin for your hospitality and the good food. The plains were light green and full of white wild flowers. It always amazes me what difference the rain makes.

Aadje thank you to make Ndutu home from home for me, all your staff was kind and helpful. I was pleased to meet temperamental Jenny and sample her good cooking, generous Ainslie and kind Eva Marie. Asanti sana Aadje April/May 2012
