Due to a booking mix up Gordon and I had a free first day.
We were staying three nights at the Mountain Village Lodge near Arusha and as we had a free day to recover from the journey we arranged for a guide to take us round Lake Duluti which is on the edge of the grounds of the lodge. The walk was around two miles of narrow woodland tracks and three quarters of the way round was a nice little outdoor bar with cold refreshing drinks and freshly cooked food if required. The guide was a godsend as without him we would probably have seen very little of the wildlife. We were joined by one of the park Rangers and they spotted lots of animals and birds we would have missed. They were not all photographable and some were just ‘record’ pictures but at least we saw them.
