Roads still bad and Toyotas getting stuck! Not our Landies! A lot of roads closed in the parks so all vehicles having to use the same roads so seems more crowded!

LAKE NATRON UPDATE

March 5th 2020
Those travelling from Lake Natron to Serengeti! The road going to Kleins Gate! Its become too boggy! It’s impassable! Driver guides have to use an alternative route! They will have to come back to Mto Wa Mbu and then drive to Serengeti Via Ngorongoro That is the best route !!
