    Leaving Zanzibar

    October 2 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    We took the 7am ferry from Stone Town to Dar es Salem. It was 2 hours. Towards the end I got a bit seasick when it got more rocky on the open sea. When we got off the boat we had to have our temperature checked for Ebola.

    Then we had a driving day to our campsite at Tanswiss. We drove through one of the national parks, Udzwunga Mountains. We also saw plants which are made for basketry, fibers, etc. we also drove by the Mbororo? tribe which live in the hills. They are the only African tribe where the women own the land and are the head of the house.
    Our campsite had a nice pool which was very relaxing because it was a very uncomfortably hot day inter bus.

    October 3 in Tanzania ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Another long driving day. We drove past the baobob valley and saw many Baobob trees. We also stopped at Neema craft shop which gives jobs and income to those with disabilities. I bought shorts, a necklace and a little makeup bag.

    Once we got to our campsite when went for a long walk to a few lakes an along sunset drive. It was nice together out and walk a bit after long driving days. Tomorrow we have to get up at 3:30!Read more

    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.

    Beeste dip op Kisolanza

    October 4, 2016 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Nicola Ghaui se familie (oorspronklik van Libanon) is al sedert die 1890s in Tanzanië. Sy het hier op die plaas Kisolanza, distrik Iringa, grootgeword en boer vandag steeds hier met beeste en skape. Vanoggend was dit diptyd, met van haar Masai-werkers wat help.

    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.
