|Storm clouds gather over the plains in our favorite place in Tanzania....|
The wildlife has been nothing short of sensational with the migration crossing the Mara River being the highlight without a shadow of a doubt. We were able to positively identify 334 of Tanzania's over 1,300 bird count. We have also been able to share the Tanzania experience with both sets of our parents who caught the migration in the Serengeti. After arriving in Tanzania via the Tunduma border where it took us 24 hours to clear, we leave via air headed to Kigali in Rwanda in search of the next adventure.
Kwa heri Tanzania!

|Us and our road block|
Ten days after spending New Year ’s Eve at Mikumi and opening our 2017 shooting with Super Sub on the road, we were back at Mikumi. It was the first long weekend of the year and last one before the April holiday season so we were back looking for shooting opportunities. The rains were late and except for the odd spot of green, the landscape was still waiting for the rains in January. Metres from the gate there was a fresh buffalo carcass by the side of the road and the hope was the lions were in the vicinity.

|Hippo Pools was the only water for miles.|
With no long weekends in November, two public holidays early in December was an opportunity to check out Mikumi for the last time of the year. The usual early morning start and we were on the road this time with 4 new heavy duty shocks a new clutch plate. The check in at the gate was surprisingly quick for a long weekend. The lion report was the Hippo pools pride was last seen near the water holes two days ago.

|Dry season at Jacana pool.|
A long weekend a couple of weeks after returning from the Serengeti saw us packed up and on the road early morning to Mikumi. We were still driving on standard shocks which was a concern but given we had driven from Moshi to Dar on them, it shouldn’t be an issue.

Up again at the crack of dawn, we were ready to go at 6am even though it was still dark. But it was an hour’s drive to the leopard, so we left in the dark hoping to be one of the first at the leopard. In the end, we were the second car to be on the scene, the other being a guided tour vehicle with one guy with a massive lens – he no doubt had the same idea as us.
