Hi all arrived safe and sound, had a great trip over to Tanzania, 5 planes plus a 4 hour entertaining road trip, dodging camels, cows, donkeys, goats and sheep strolling across the road on their way back to their village after a day out grazing in the wilderness,
It took us approximately 36 hours to get here from New Zealand, all worth it though.
We arrived at Meserani Snake Park in the evening, all totally exhausted so it was off to bed for us.
I’m traveling with my 6 year old twins on my own, so even that can take it’s toll
Bit jet lagged, wide eyed and bushy tailed, woke up at 4.30 this morning, listening to the creatures of the night, amazing sounds.
Had a lovely cooked breakfast yum, yum, have had about 4 cups of delicious Africafe coffee, god that’s the best coffee ever!
Had my morning groom with my buddy Shawawa, she’s so cute.
Wildlife Anti poaching department confiscated her and bought her to the park to be looked after.
She comes from Southern Tanzania so it would be virtually impossible to introduce her to another troop of baboons. Baboons are very tribal and do not take lightly to strangers joining their troop. She would be injured in the process. Shawawa is very well looked after and loves the interaction with the visitors to the park.
The Snake Park looks awesome, so nice to be back and see everyone again.
We’ve got our summer gear on, sorry had to rub that in lol, we just left -8 back home.
Look we even have a gym in my lounge, no excuse now not to exercise.
We have some friends here from New Zealand, they just climbed Mt Meru and Mt Kilimanjaro the highest mountain in Africa, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 metres or 19,341 feet above sea level, they are pretty impressed with themselves. Thumbs up to them.
They have a beer here called Kilimanjaro, and a t-shirt that says, “If you can’t climb it drink it” I won’t be climbing it so I guess I better drink it..
Look what I found in my room!!! I’m such a girl lol, I had to get Ma to get this little fella out haha, We all know what eats frogs around the snake park!!!!
So for the next few days I’ll just be chilling before the adventures being.
