Had a full day. Climbed the mountain near where we are camped this morning. It was a major undertaking and everyone participated in spite of the fairly rigorous nature of the climb. From the top you can see for miles in every direction, since we are surrounded by plains. Our sharp-eyed guides spotted greater kudu, eland, and giraffe far below us.
After returning to camp, our Maasai hosts butchered a goat and roasted the meat around the campfire. Some of the students tried it an we spent several hours around the campfire in the evening asking about issues of ecology, livelihoods, and rural health. During this conversation, we heard both our first hyena whoops from afar as well as the first bellows of a Cape buffalo.
We break camp first thing in the morning tomorrow to head west, where Tarangire National Park abe more adventures await.
