Tanzania, lovely country, makes Uganda seem VERY poor.
Just look at these lucky animals…
This is the Ngorogoro Crater. It’s 4000 sq km of wildlife, pretty much completely cut off from the rest of the country.
The animals stay there and their populations are static – a testiment to hands off the environment. And amazing considering the amount of carnage going on at any one time.
These examples of early hominid are Sim and his mate Simon.
The zebras live with the wildebeast cos the zebras have good eyesight, so they go ahead at night, while the wildebeast have good smell and lead the way at day. Clever.
We saw a lion pack tearing a wildebeast to pieces, presumably having attacked from downwind. There’s a frustration lying in wait behind every solution!
Then they laid down in the road after their 40 kg lunches, and this truck had to wait! We left….
Now we’re in the mountains of NE Tanzania, a bit cooler, around 30’C. 2 nights camping here then off to Dar es Salaam, then Zanzibar.
I’m a happy man and it just keeps getting better.
