Our itinerary said we were going to "stop" here on our way to Gibbs Farm. We thought it would be a dinky, drive-through experience. We were so surprised at the density and diversity of animals we saw here, and easily could have spent even more time than we did!
Their credit card machine wasn't working when we arrived, so we all got sunburnt waiting outside in the parking lot. But once we got inside, we saw two kinds of monkeys, baboons, elephants, zebras, giraffes, wildebeest, cape buffalo, hippos, impalas and all kinds of birds! I think the two best things were 1) a day-old baby hippo, and 2) an elephant spraying himself from a little pool of water by the roadside.
Would go back every time I was in Tanzania... We liked this even more than the whole of Tarangire National Park!
