Buffalo vs Lion

Mikumi NP is the closest national park in terms of distance from Dar es Salaam, which makes it an attractive option as a weekend away for residents.  Having said that, we've only been there twice, but our second trip gave us one of our best action sequences in the bush... lion vs buffalo.

Bakery on wheels

I'm always amazed what I see being transported around Tanzania on motorbikes, or boda-boda's as they're called.  Anything from people to bread to hammerhead sharks (yes, seen this too!).  A cheap if pretty dangerous way to get around in the traffic in Dar es Salaam - it's not for the fainthearted! 

This was photographed on the main highway out of Dar es Salaam early one morning, no doubt delivering to the shops in the small villages en route out of the city.
