A fun journey!

I must say that I had a lot of fun; two trips in one. I got to see some of the vast countryside of Tanzania, not just the safari circuit. The country is very diverse in its geology, everything from agriculture to extinct volcanoes. I was fortunate enough to meet a lot of people in…

Epic trip wraps up

My trip has now come to an end. What a trip it has been! We ended the safari with seeing three rhinos! Albeit they were in the distance, but I am sure I’ll be able to tell from the photos. So I have now seen the “big five”, pretty stoked about that! The crater is…

Safari!

We have now been on safari for a few days. What fun! When I went to bed tonight there was a hippo at the lodge gate, oh my they are vocal. They spend their days in the hippo pond and their nights foraging. You can see their trails in the morning. I recorded it but…

We have been out to visit families, mostly single women with kids, one family and one grandmother looking after grandchildren. If you think you have nothing and are struggling, let me tell you about raising four children and…
