... first lion sighting of the trip, and a very nice way to end off.



Tanzania seems to have very bad drivers, with very bad roads, and we saw a great many accidents and dangerous driving along the way. 300 km later we drove through the outskirts of Dar Es Salaam. The last 30 km took us 2 hours to weave through the sea of humanity, bicycles and busses. These drivers make our ...

... find heavy traffic but it all seemed to be moving.
We found out that today is a Bank Holiday.
Still looked like London rush hour to me.

We arrived at our beach camp and pitched our tents.

... missing one of the items. From my research before I started my trip, I learned that Dar Es Salaam taxis are notorious for robbery’s where they pull into a dark alley and hold you hostage until they exhaust your bank accounts.
