Off to see the Big Game in Action

no privacy for the Lion's in the Serengeti

Today is the first day of the three day break in Arusha. Many riders have now spent their first day seeing the amazing wildlife inside the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Hopefully having taken better photos than the one above.

This halfway stop on the tour is a chance for staff and riders to take a deep breath and stop thinking about their bikes and the challenges ahead – at least for a brief moment. And there are challenges ahead.

The rough roads and potential for more rain through Tanzania, the heat and humidity in Malawi and Zambia, the long days in Botswana, the dunes and the dirt in Namibia, and the home stretch into Cape Town.

Here's some further reading…

Tim Thomas' latest entry from Arusha on injuries, Obama, and Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Alexander Shanny's post from last year recapping her journey into the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.

Erik Dobrovolsky's post from last year recounting the events of a challenging day just a few days south of Arusha.

Stay tuned, there is more adventures to come.
