With our guide Elisha we walked into the valley behind the village Ngare Sero. At first there was a very comfortable path and a bridge to cross the river, but as the valley became narrower and narrower, the path suddenly ended and we had to continue through the water.
The water comes from the Ngorongoro crater we were told, flowing under ground. It was not cold and had a soapy texture.
Finally we reached the waterfall, where we could walk a little bit further between the rocks and enjoy the spray.
After our morning hike and refreshing swim in the river, we continued our way in direction of Klein’s Gate, but stopped in Wasso for the night, before finally heading into the Serengeti the next day. The road until the gate was gravel, with 30km of new tar road in between, hopefully there is more to come. In general the road was good, only where we had to cross dry river beds around Lake Natron, we had to go slow, otherwise it was no problem. Busses and trucks take that road too, supplying the remote area close to the border to Kenia.
Before noon the next day, we arrived at the northern gate to the Serengeti, entering from there – more on our next post!
