... was shattered however once we got back to camp around sunset and a massive, one-tusked elephant strolled through our camp. We also had several Cape Buffalo visit our campsite at night, equally exciting and scary. All in all, the first day of safari was incredibly exciting and left us wanting more. Animal Highlights: - 2 Lionesses (sunning/napping on a downed tree) - 3 Eastern Black Rhinos (!!!!!) - 2 African Elephants (including the one marching through our camp) - Hippos - Several ...

... to see! One of the best things we saw was a cheetah and her three baby cubs! They were eating a gazelle which was gross but they were so fluffy!! The mumma kept standing up and watching as there were lions and hyenas around. We were able to drive right up next to her and watch. Even through the long grass it was still easy to see her. The cubs made the cutest sounds. Eventually we drove off and right in front of us a hippo wandered across the road! For a big fellow, he moves ...

... just three students to two campuses and around 1600 students! Our day at the school was wonderful.....we attended an assembly, played with the children after lunch (which is provided for all students) and attended two classes...drumming and dance. On another afternoon we were also fortunate enough to be taken by school bus for a home visit, to the home of a young year two student, Freddie. This stands out as a highlight of our Tanzanian experience. We were greeted as VIPs, with ...

Day 34: Chilled monkey brains

... I then thought it would be wise to go to our local dodgy bar and show them just how to dance properly. A local drunk African pensioner, probably 35-40 years old, kissed me on the cheek so I probably have Ebola now. Zoe: today was "market" day. If you ever wondered what happens to clothes and shoes that you put in those charity bins, well I think all our stuff ends up in markets like these. Seriously one section ...
