|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.

Serengeti NP Day 1: life’s a journey, enjoy the ride? Not when you’re doing the ride from NCA to Serengeti…

|Kili and us back in the Serengeti after 2 years|
But now all was fixed, and we were just hoping that Kili would survive the road from hell (a 100km stretch from the NCA gate to Serengeti gate) in one piece.

After the car behaved from our last week’s trip and with a long weekend on offer, it was Mikumi again with a night at Udzungwa mountains planned. We were on the road early Saturday morning but there was swelling on my jaw which we decided to monitor and keep going.
