After a leisurely breakfast headed for our next stop Ngorongoro Crater. Enroute stopped at karratu township for a wander through the market...just loved it...seeing what the locals get up to on a daily basis! Then drove to our new home Neptune Luxury Lodge for two nights...all inclusive...that could be messy! Beers, wines and cocktails all included. Lovely lunch overlooking the pool and valley down below where coffee is being harvested! Then swim and cocktails by the pool...what a lovely way to spend some free time! Then as dusk came there were about 20 elephants came into view from our balcony...what a sight! Thurs spent the whole day game driving down in the base of the Ngorongoro crater, shocking bumpy dusty roads but all worth it. Saw a variety of animals today including the crown bird, hyena and jackal. . The lodge packed us picnic boxes and we had our lunch next to a lake. Highlight was a visit to a Maasai Village and taken into their home and visited their school. So friendly! Back to the lodge around 4.15, showers, washing dusty clothes then for cocktails and dinner. Another lovely couple of days in Tanzania!
