Day 2 in Tarangire began with breakfast. The previous day I said I would talk about the food. Before I left I didn't know what to expect (you can see not knowing what to expect was a reoccuring theme) with the food. I love eating and I love all sorts of food, but there things I just dont like (see most vegetables). Anyways, all the food was excellent. For breakfast it was always cereal, fresh fruit, toast and eggs along with a variation of either pancakes, doughnuts, sausage, etc. Fresh juice, tea and coffee was also provided. The breakfasts were great.

We were leaving camp at 8 am sharp, so waking up at 6:30am was hard with the major time difference. Every morning, along with the hot shower, they brought you a warm jug of water to wash your face, clean up ect.
Termite hill. At least 3ft tall and they were everywhere.
This was called "Jambo Jambo" (Jambo is hello is Kiswahili). So Jambo Jambo was usually around 7 or so, meaning be awake by that time.

So at 8 we left camp to start our day again. Again we saw elephants, zebras, wildebeasts, and giraffes. We also got to see a lot of different birds, over 40 different species of birds. Ranging from tiny to massive, you definitely got your fill of birds.

We continued on, in search for something new and exciting. We came up on an area with about 6-7 different vechiles stopped and people looking out into the distance. We came up and stopped and started looking. And low and behold, lions! 2 male lions just laying around. Sadly they were over 100 yards away probably, but none-the-less it was a lion in the wild pretty breath taking. Saw some waterbucks too while driving around.

Returned to camp for lunch which, just like breakfast was good. When at camp for lunch (there were days we took box lunches) it was always some sort of meat, vegetables, and salad.

Went back out and continued to see a lot of different animals. On our way in we saw trees full of vultures and baboons. Altough we were seeing animals you had already seen multiple times, it was still exciting in that you never knew what was going to happen and they were always in a different enivronment.

Came back and had some lounging time. Had dinner which was beef skewers with salad, squash and a banana that tasted more like a vegetable (the name slips me right now). Wasnt as good as our first meal, but they definitely werent letting us starve.

There was no animals to hear during the night except the random bird.
