We loved Olduvai, it is not a luxurious camp, but it had a really friendly feel and the camp was remote and in the prettiest of locations. Shortly after arriving we went for a walk with the friendly Masais, to watch the sunset. They were lovely, happy to chat about their culture and seemed to enjoy posing for pictures and generally being the star attraction! Back from the walk, the shower was ready, and what an experience, actually showering outdoors! Dinner was around a big table so you get to socialise a bit, usually with people you keep meeting along the way, which is nice. After dinner we spent a bit of time in the bar, which was empty apart from us; this allowed us to have a good chat with Kanuya, who was looking after the bar, and learn a bit more about Tanzania and the local customs. We had a lovely time and a really relaxing stay in Olduvai, it is a place that i remember very fondly and vividly, i would love to stay there again if i was ever back in Tanzania.
