    March 14 in Tanzania ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    After pressing down the price from 95 to 20 USD I spend a nice night in an elevated lodge with fabulous view over the Ruaha national park. The whole day I drive around in the park for way too much money and many roads are not passable. Still, the landscape is beautiful and different from all other parks! Three large rivers there are and everything looks very natural and wild. That's the way it should be! My hitlist for today: a snake, a jackal, a hippo, a serval (!), zebras, impalas, baboons, a bird, a different bird, another different bird, many other different birds, three owls, elephants, some giraffes, a kudu, tiny little turtles, a duiker and trillions of tsetse flies!

    I reject to pay 30 USD for a simple campsite inside the park and do some wild camping next to the road around 10 km away. I didn't see any fence while leaving so probably some impalas are watching while my kitchen system proofs very flexible as I prepare potatoes with roasted cashews, onions, ginger, lemon and chakkalakka sauce. Yum!

    The Old Farm House

    July 5, 2017 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    It seems to be the same ol' story, another long drive - this time we had a thirteen hour drive, we started at 4am and we only just got there in time to put out tents up in the last little bit of light.

    Tonight Duncan cooked us a beef stew and 'pap' which is a traditional porridge/polenta made from mielie-meal (ground maize) and a staple food of many Africans. It was pretty tasteless but was good when put with the stew, sort of tasted like mashed up rice.

    After dinner we went to the bar where we had an amarula hot chocolate and a brownie for dessert, they were both delicious.

    Ruaha Nationalpark 2

    July 15, 2016 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Unsere Erwartungen, zum ersten Mal Löwen zu sehen, waren hoch und wir wurden nicht enttäuscht. Für erfahrene Safari-Liebhaber mögen unsere Erlebnisse normal sein, aber für uns waren sie sehr aufregend! Aus einem offenen Jeep einem stattlichen Löwen aus nur sechs Meter Distanz beim Fressen zuzuschauen war schon beängstigend. Wir hörten deutlich die Knochen brechen, während um uns der permanente Geruch des blutigen Kudukadavers in die Nase strömte.
    Aber auch landschaftlich wurden wir verwöhnt. Bilder von friedlich grasenden Elefantenherden, mehrere tausend Jahre alte Boabab-Bäume oder Flussläufen mit friedlich schlafenden Krokodilen und Flusspferden.

    Utengule Coffee Lodge

    October 3, 2016 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Dié plek lê op die rand van Afrika se groot Skeurvallei: sonsondergang was iets om te aanskou. Ons kamp, maar raak uitspattig met ontbyt - en natuurlik koffie uit die Utengule-landgoed se plantasie.
