    Mkomazi

    March 30 in Tanzania ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

    24 h permit with camping inside the Mkomazi National Park for me and my German-registered car: 118 USD. And that's one of the cheaper parks in Tanzania. The park is very natural, untouched, authentic with a nice hilly scenery. The wildlife is more on distance here! I expect to be saved from heavy rain and mud this time but that doesn’t work out. I cannot leave the north-western part further south-east because all possible paths turn into water and/or mud quickly. Wherever I see more or less fresh ranger tracks in the mud I follow with the simple thought “Hmm, if they did it, I will too!”. By that I increase my mud driving skills tremendously, especially after a short rain where the soil turns into soap and the car wiggles freely from 90° left to 90° right even tough the road is flat and straight. You can have as much 4x4 and as many differential locks as you like, it stays very funny and uncontrollable! But on all other roads I don’t want to risk getting stuck because there is nobody else around except for mongooses, duikers, an elegant secretary bird, impalas, ostriches, hartebeests, zebras, warthogs, masai giraffes (G. tippelskirchii), infinite numbers of giant ticks, turtles, tortoises, quail-like and chicken-like birds, falcons, pigeons, hornbills (love them!!), lizards, geckos, some tsetse flies, kudus, jackals, buffalos and a puff adder which decides to spit out its partly digested prey directly in front of me on the track. I have to wait, can’t continue before it finishes. In the beginning it just looks at me and then for 5-10 minutes it opens and closes its mouth several times until I see the big bulb inside moving to the front. Then it delivers its present in front of me! Thank you.Read more

    Mkomazi- nasionale park

    October 14, 2016 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Wanneer laas was julle die enigste mense in 'n ganse nasionale park? Dit was ons vandag in Mkomazi, een van Tanzanië se nuwer nasionale parke. Hier sien jy rare boksoorte - die laaaangnek gerenuk het ons ontwyk, maar ons het wel die "lesser kudu" gesien, wat wraggies nes 'n miniatuurkoedoe lyk! Ons het o.a. ook wildehonde, kameelperde, dik-dik en voëlspesies uniek aan die streek gesien.Read more

    Ons oornag in Same by die Elephant Motel - vanoggend, op pad Mkomazi toe, het ons vars samosas by 'n straatverkoper gekoop. Gisteraand het ons ook soos konings geëet.
