Service Learning and Maymester group looking over Serengeti National Park.
Today the eight students left Ngorongoro, and headed to Serengeti National Park. On the way, we stopped at a Maasai boma, toured their place, and learned how they live. After that, we arrived at Oldupai Gorge, one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world, where the Leakey’s found many human fossils and stone tools. Eventually we got to the Park gate, ate lunch, and climbed a granite rock that overlooked the Park. On the long drive through grassy plains, we began to spot a few animals. All of the sudden, we came upon a leopard sleeping in a tree right next to the road! Everyone was so excited. Finally we made it to our tented camp in the wilderness, where we will stay for the next three days.
