Mdonya camp

A travel blog entry by barbikewley


... through the customs and catch a bus. A trip of about 1100 one way.In Iringa we drew money from our credit cards, R1 = 155 shillings, put in diesel which is much the same price as SA - just over R14 to the litre. I also went to the market to buy fruit - got naartjies, avos, mangoes, bananas.The drive to Ruaha was very interesting, only about 150km but took us about three hours. The Tanznian parks are ...

A Traumatic Poem

A travel blog entry by onegirlbigworld


... a shoe, and ready to pummel I hit it, it jumped - I hit it again and sure enough, on to the floor it went "Get it!"

Marc is right…there is still subterranean water in the Mwagusi River and it is close enough to the surface to save the animals, especially with the elephants’ help.

There, on the bank, is a miracle. The Egyptian geese parents attacked by the jackal several days ago have survived and ...

Grumpy's Pride

A travel blog entry by leomcyr


... We see no large predators but the body language of all animals on that side of the bridge says a threat is near.

What is so interesting about this part of Ruaha is the winding, narrow roads we follow never give a hint of what is around the next bend. It is exciting and so different from the Serengeti or Maasai Mara where one can seemingly see forever. Here, around one bend is a large herd of Cape buffalo contentedly chewing their cuds. Around ...
